Great postIf people are saying they'll be this emotional now when he retires, I can't imagine the reaction when he actually does it. I don't what I'll do but I'll have a lot of trouble following tennis and caring if someone does not emerge to fill the void.
I still remember when Agassi retired and I felt an era died with him. Even though I had not watched him (as much), it still struck a cord so Fed's retirement will be something like exiting my tennis childhood. I grew up with Roger's victories and even now he's still playing. What a guy!
