    .....eventually that is.

    Fed is not going to be a factor in the Slams anymore (if you are willing to wait until 2014, you're right)

    Fed will never beat Murray again (may already have happened after wimbledon)

    Fed is not a top player (2015)

    Congrats and thanks for waiting 10 years patiently :)

    If you wake up every morning praying to see Federer out of top 10, one day you will be right. "I'll tell you what" (c) Koenig: he will decline as far as dying.

    But you cannot erase videos. Videos don't sink or burn.

    However, the longer he he holds off on real decline the more and more tinny and hollow will be their rightness.

    Yes.. just to make sure this can be bumped whenever Federer really fades (he might be on the verge)

    I hope Fed makes more major semis/finals and wins another major, but anything he does now is pretty much icing on the cake that was baked because there was too much icing on the other cake from before. Murray could have his career year next year. But it was nice to see parity this year in any case.

    pre-emptive bump as Fed is going to lose and trolls will be all over the place.

    Add one more to it perhaps... "Tomic will beat Federer". Keep trying sureshs et al., some day you'll be right. Too bad you have had to wait for 10 years and 17 slams.

    This applies to people who don't like Nadal either, though. How long have people been saying that he couldn't sustain with his play style, and how many times has he gone on to win slams after?

    Freudian slip, Agassifan concedes that in his opinion the wait is already over.

    I think Fed is really lucky as the new baby-generation is so weak.
    If only there were a couple of youngsters stepping up, he should retire right now.
    Fortunately for him, thats not the case, so he can extend his time in ATP a couple of years, but I can hardly see him winning a major again. Maybe a M1000 or two.

    he won a slam last year... let's wait for him to finish a year slam-less, or rather slam-final-less, before we discuss his decline...

    even then he'll be a factor at the other big tournaments knocking out top seeds and winning a few titles.

    Federer, whom I admire much, as stated in so many posts, would have more fun playing in the 80´s or early 90´s than in this era...

    Timely bump. Especially because GOAT discussions are being thrown in after every loss :)

    Fed loses - Wow, he clearly was playing in a weak era when he won all those majors! Now peak Federer loses against scrubs.

    Fed wins - Almost cripple 38 year old still destroys everyone. GOAT

    All I know is its amazing how this guy keeps working his way through draws in slams. Easy draw, hard draw whatever. Its pretty much freaky. I have never seen anything like it. Not only does he keep making quarter finals, he never misses a damn slam either. Who has been like that ever? Its amazing.:shock:

    This thread is not the place for that. This is for Fed haters who have waited more than a decade to discount his wins.

    It has come so far that now I actually feel sorry for the haters and find myself cheering for Feds opposition.

    Did you ever consider it the other way around? That Nadal and Djokovic and Murray are really, really lucky that there are no 20-22 year 'Nadal's', 'Djokovic's' or 'Murray's' (or 18-24 for that matter) to challenge them, when they are 25-27 and onwards? That they will have and have a much easier time than Fed had from 2008 onwards?

    Wow, a Nadal fan claiming Rafa winning in a weak era? That actually requires some objectivity.

    This is a good time to bump this. All the losers have been out in force after Fed's inevitable decline. Thanks for waiting so long.
