Fed has already pulled out of Toronto, wisely. The question is how he bounces back after this demolition. Will this give him even more motivation to keep fighting and go after that USO and perhaps more slams?

Or will this defeat destroy him knowing it was truly his last real chance at Olympic Gold in singles, the only thing he doesn't have on his resume apart from Monte-Carlo, Rome, Davis Cup, and Shanghai?

Will Federer win Rio 2016 Gold and retire during the medal ceremony?
Federer will retire for his fans.

That comes from being new to the forum. I knew it was sarcasm because I have seen several posts from the man you quoted. It was, after all, not just sarcasm - but a parody. Several others here say the same thing and (at least apparently) mean it.

Not trying to take it that far.

Who is not doubting this?

I am saying let's see where Fed goes from here. I've got his already as my #1 GOAT, and I am just curious as to MTF's prediction of where he will go from here.

I will add a poll.

This is an appreciated response

Johnny Groove on the MTF decline. Past his peak, perhaps?

True

Fed winning Rio 2016, that'd be insane, at 34? Would be the fitting cap for a career. Needs to win Davis Cup as well.

He was dead tired, and Andy played really great match.
It will be a nightmare for Faketards, Dulltards if he really wants another medal in 2016

Fed now has the silver slam. He was second best today by a long way. Murray played excellently, Fed was slow around the court particularly getting to the corners, as he said in the post match interview.

Personally I think Federer will play on for 4 more years and retire at the 2016 Olympic Games. He'll try for more slams, and maybe target 100 single titles. But beyond that, he's got nothing left to prove. I expect he'll remain in the top 4 rankings for at least the next two years. It's up to him.

Murray will now hopefully power on and win a slam. If he carries on playing like that he will. Nadal's body is breaking down more frequently, and Djokovic has lost that hunger that gave him the edge in 2011.

Where's the option for Fed winning 13 more slams, winning Rio and the Olympics after that before retiring from singles and moving to doubles to play with the 13-time slam champion Dimitrov, then winning CYGS on doubles and 11 slams before finally retiring at age 45?

I agree. Federer was unable to give a full effort because he didn't want to see Murray and the British fans crushed again. Federer has a soft place in his heart for both the British fans who have always cheered for him and for Murray who has lost three slams to the Maestro. The same type of situation happened in Halle where he was weak against Haas. Federer is human and like everyone else at times the motivation is lacking. I am not trying to imply that Murray would have lost if Federer was motivated but the score wouldn't be so lopsided.

I consider myself a rabid Federer fan but seeing Murray gutted again in front of the whole British crowd would be painful to watch.

the fedtard in me would like to agree but he was clearly outplayed just like the first set in wimbledon. but murray was able to keep the momentum up. the hewitt and haas in halle and roddick in miami are due to the kindness of his heart. but this one i think he was just clearly outplayed by a better player
