PostSubject: Roger Federer not Declining; Two players are just better at this stage.   Mon Sep 12, 2011 2:45 am

I watched Federer in every game
of the Open and I genuinely think it was Vintage Federer from a couple
of years back, He started off slowly against Giraldo but made it look
really easy just way too much class for the Argentine.

The Match against Tsonga just goes to show he makes a big step up on
those big occasions and probably played the most flawless tennis I've
seen him play ever against Monaco who isn't a bad player at all hence
why he got to the 4th round.

I just believe two much younger players in Djokovic and Nadal are just
faster, more athletic; generally a touch better then Federer but I don't
recall him losing to anyone of a lesser class ever; He has made the
Quarters or a grand slam (at least) since the French open in 2004; Is
just and has been Mr Consistent for a long time now, I don't believe he
has lost much consistency at all.

I was just heartbroken at him losing to Djokovic; I think a year or two a
go against the same opponent at his same peak of his powers, He would
of went on with it and won it in 3 sets. But as much as I hate Djokovic
he is just a champion Tennis player and he looks to become the 10's
dynasty, If anything a bit of mentality has been lost from Federer's
game. That can affect any unforced errors he makes but other then that I
think we have the Same Federer from 2007 through to 2009.

I think Federer has the class in him to win another grand slam, There's
only two players that stand in the way of that in the world and I think
there is a ridiculous class drop between Federer and Andy Murray. I can
only see one of three men winning a grand slam singles title within the
next 12 months.

I have to agree that he'll still come up with one or two more. Obviously he can't dominate to the same extent as he used to, nor for as long as he used to, but I reckon he can come up with the goods for 7 GS matches here and there and still add one or two to the tally in the twilight of his career. Agassi and Sampras both were well past their best after 30 but still racked up a couple slams, even if they were no longer dominant #1s. By my calculations it's been a whole two years since he won one now (gone fast and hard to believe for those of us who have followed how thoroughly he dominated the game for a half-decade). I think he's made one final in that time and a number of semis, so he's not getting bounced in first rounds or anything. Can still pull out one or two more.
