Smile Will Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal focus on Doubles?

When we look at the Doubles title winners, we see that the most winners are aged above 30's. Players aged above 35 take a major portion in winning Doubles Grandslam this year, upto now.

Do you think Roger Federer, or Rafael Nadal, or for instance any other Singles player will concentrate on Doubles in later part of his career? I ask this because, we have seen such player too. Moreover, it would be wise of making some money and achieving in Doubles too. Do you think that they'll play doubles before they retire?

If yes, at what age? Do you think they'll rule the game even in Doubles?
Is it a good decision to play doubles, or is it wise to end the career comparatively earlier as singles players?

This question is not only for these two players, but for any other players who's made it in Singles Tennis. Be it, Djokovic or any other player.

If Fedal will get together they will probably win all Slams for several years in a row. They could be a great team. But they probably won't play doubles.

Yeah... they might not play doubles at all. if at all they play, they would not team together. John McEnroe was perhaps the only one who did the both.

Maybe if you watch them playing, you can understand. Stats say that.

Clearly , I need to explain more.
Both of the statements can't be true at the same time. That's all I'm going to say. Hope you understand this time.

Wow..Fedal would be a dream team. But i doubt nadal would ever play doubles. He has always looked at tennis as a job imo. I don't think he'll play longer than he has to.
Federer has always loved tennis and you can see it in his face when playing. He and stan may just decide to team up after they retire/fade from the singles.

Rafa and Roger won't play doubles. Give it up. Rafa only plays doubles with people he wants to beat.

I can´t see why either of them would be interested in doubles. Besides, Rafa doesn´t really have the tools for it, he doesn´t have sufficiently strong serve or volleys.

When was the last time big champion in singles after retirement continued his way in doubles? Can`t remember anyone after Mac and even he isn`t the best example. That`s the answer: Neither Rafa nor Roger.
