I'm sure Fed is happy with what he has achieved thus far. He is playing because he loves the game and what the hell, even he knows that records are meant to be broken. There are a tremendous number of upcoming youngsters along with the big 2. I wish he'd take up doubles with Stan. He could go on for a long time. Look at Paes at age 40+
Tempus Fugit Not everybody 'involuntarily wants to watch him win all the time'. I certainly don't. It isn't against the law to prefer other players. At least I don't think it is.
cotswolds 'Ditto Novak btw'. Who happened to win Wimbledon, and beat Fed soundly in Cincinnati to get the Golden Masters.
How about adding he also lost to Djokovic in Cincinnati, where he has been a serial winner. Didn't have match point, just got beaten. Or does that not count?
I love Federer and I hope he take up doubles as I believe he could win several men's and mixed doubles GS
@62. Secondly Tiger Woods has a technically great golf swing and deft touches on the green - much more like Federer than the unorthodox and attritional Nadal!
@62 The fact that neither of them have won the most majors shows that are not the best ever surely!
He's still a joy to watch. I'm sure Roger himself will know when it's time to stop - he has nothing to prove.
when Pat Cash has won as many titles as Roger Federer, then he'll be in a position to tell him what to do, not before. Roger owes nobody anything and I hope he'll go on playing just as long as HE wants to. I shall miss his elegant play when he does decide to call it a day, but nobody has the right to tell him how to plan his future.
if he enjoys playing and keep going deep in to grand slams I don't see a reason to retire at all. you cant win them all!
62.What source did you get this statement/fact/tidbit from?
The guy is world no 2 for heavens sake.Does every other player on the circuit aged 28+ have to field the same lame questions every time they lose a match?
Federer loses one match and all the so-called tim-witted "Experts" calling for his retirement ! What a bunch of 'short-memory' simpletons.
One thing Nadal and tiger have in common, they are the best that’s ever played their game but do not hold the overall record for majors.
Federer needs to shape up. In overall life terms he is still a young man, though old for an athlete. He just needs to play more - even tournaments he doesn't like, e.g. the French Open. Basically he needs a kick up the backside.
