Federer. Ferrer doesn't mind being a 2nd tier played as he was before 2007. I see him playing into late 30's in MM events or even challengers.

True, although Challengers is pushing it a bit too far :p

Still, I have the feeling they will retire at roughly the same time. Federer 2016 Olympics and Ferrer 2016 Valencia.

I am proud of your comprehension skills.

I can't say for sure on who would retire first. But Roger in 2016 and Ferrer in 2016 would be ideal I believe. Ferrer may play beyond that too.

Ferrer grinding in the 20-40's of the rankings in his mid thirties seems very fitting imo, not an insult. Can't see Federer being motivated once he feels he can't win slams.

This exactly. Plus nobody will ever talk about Ferrer one he's out of the Top 10 so he wil not have the media urging him to retire. On the other hand the pressure on Fed will be unbearable as soon as he fails to qualify for WTF. Not sure he will play that long though, we can't know what's in the back of his mind, he may want something else. I agree with Cloren about the Valencia 2017, that was actually my pick in a "retirement guess" topic last off-season.

EDIT : voted for Federer, since he's not likely to be a relevant player beyond that. I think he will not be in 2015 WTF, and hopefuly he will announce 2016 as his last year so that media don't bring up the "R" question every week.

Ferrer for sure. Federer enjoys playing, it's a job for Ferrer. Ferrer was talking about retirement when at a career high rank :lol:
That's BS.
