    Of course.
    It's more difficult now, but don't discount the Fed. He'll win a few more.

    He gives himself too many oppurtunities to win. Even if he loses more often in finals, he'll still win a few more, at least.

    RF's decline

    Earlier this year (mar/Apr) we debated this and I voiced the opinion that RF has maxed out and will not win another GS event and based on todays showing against RN, I will stick to my assertion because I think that bearing in mind the overall depth and strength of mens tennis, its pretty obvious that there'll be no record equaling or record breaking GS triumphs for Mr Federer.

    NB: The only way RF wins another GS singles title is if Nadal and or Djokavic loses before he does, otherwise...no chance.

    He will win couple more Wimbledons (not necessary this year). That is it.

    Federer fans are becoming more like Safin fans.

    oh yeah, after losing to the best clay court player ever in the finals of an event he is certainly done. I mean what are the odds of him winning another AO (lets not forget he shouldn't have been playing this year) or another Wimbledon, he is only the best grass court player on tour right now. Or what about a US open where the only threat is Novak, the person who federer took care of easily last year.

    So will Nadal be the only person to win another event? He played well on the surface he dominates on. Federer still made it to the finals of the slam on his least favorite surface. Relax.

    He will not win any more Masters or Slams. Maybe a couple of small tournaments.

    If he loses to Nadal at Wimbledon and Djokovic at the U.S. Open, then Roger may be done. He's only won one tournament this year (Estoril) and Davydenko retired in the final.

    if he doesn't win Wimbledon this year, he'll never win another Slam again.
    Nadal owns clay.
    Djokovic owns hardcourt.
    we'll see if Fed still owns grass.

    If he wins the US open this year, I will agree with you, until then I must disagree.

    Yes, Roger will win another 2 or 3 Grandslams :) Today it was just the head who asks ''How can I beat Rafa on Clay!?''

    The Tennis Channel just showed Hamburg 2007 between Fed and Nadal. One thing is for sure: Fed's movement is no where as good as it was in 2007.

    I think Fed is still got a couple slams in him but his best days are behind him. With his movement slowing down a little and the other players continuing to improve, I think this is a safe thing to predict.

    He would be lucky to win Newport.
