    He's been beatable for a while now and it is showing. An all time great who will win more, but never with the dominance of the past.

    He wasn't dominant this season, all I want are certain accomplishments, not 11 months of sheer dominance like in the old days. 2006 is never happening again.

    That's all that I mean, he's been in decline since around Olympics 2008, still has more wins, never like 2004-2007.

    Yes everything after Roland Garros was a wonderful bonus, and what a bonus it was.

    honestly i'm sure he doesn't care to have won a 'masters' event more than any other regular title... but not to win the masters cup, on the other hand, is a significant disappointement for him, i think. :(
    but well, that season was already amazing, and he can't win everything... without forgetting that davy played a great match.

    maybe next year roger can join lendl and sampras, and their 5 year-end masters ? ;)
