Hopefully , WTF would take place in Switzerland in the last year of Fed's career.

With a revised schedule focusing on natural surfaces Rafa will certainly have a shot at playing 4/5 more years. Plus there's an extra week of grass from 2014.

I agree with this, as long as another serious injury doesn't occur. I can see him going out with a DC tie in 2014 or maybe at the end of 2013 and I think a DC tie would be the best way for him to go, given how much he loves the competition. AO is of course also possible.

I also agree about Robredo, Haas and Ferrero.

If Nalbandian doesn't get his DC dream I can see him calling it a day at Buenos Aires in the next couple of years.

A fitting end for Fed would be right after he took Wimbledon number 8. But unlike Sampras, announce it that your done.

I wouldn't want Fed to retire at WTF because that would mean he's still in the top 8. USO would be better.

Default Re: Where will/would you like your favourite player to retire?

Haas still has few years left.
As his prime goal isn't to gain rankings as much as possible, we could see him for another 2-4 years.
It sounds strange considering his age, but there are other factors as well.

He spent so many years outside courts, that he's always eager to give his best tennis.
One of his next goals are:
To reach 500th victory and to play long enough for his daughter to watch him play, consciously..

So my guess would be somewhere in 2015, Germany or USO...

Well I doubt he will get that low before retiring without an injury. I mean that I'd like him to go for a year or 2 after dropping to 10-20.

Fuck retiring. Play untill you die on court.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

Being serious though. Probably after the US Open too and after winning it.

That would be sad to see. I dont like any top player to keep doing that. I highly doubt we will see that from Fed. His ego is too big as is his bank account to keep playing anymore when he's not in contention.

Federer is too arrogant and egotistical to retire while still being a slam contender.

I don't think the WTF is really a good place to retire for a top player.. as it's not a straight elimination tournament it sort of messes up the emotion of it a bit I think.

Say it as you will, but it's a big part of the reason he's still winning. A big ego is part of the job description of the champions.

I have no problem with Fed staying at top 8 till retiring at 38 though.
