Instead, Federer won Roland Garros and Wimbledon in 2009.
At the end of 2009 it was believed that Nadal was headed for retirement.
Instead, Nadal won 3 slams in 2010, becoming the only man ever to win slams on clay, grass and hardcourt in a Calendar Year.

Instead, Djokovic won 3 slams in 2011.
At the end of 2011 it was believed that Djokovic would continue to dominate the slams.
Instead, we had 4 different slam winners, and Djokovic's Australian Open win was the closest slam final of the year.
This is all true. That's why just like the *******s and Rafa haters out there, you should cut the 'Fed is done' 'stick a fork in Roger' BS, as well. We just don't know what will happen next year. Both are extremely talented and both have proved to be able to perform great after disappointments. Wouldn't write off either to win a Slam or more next year, though a really dominant year for Fed is hard to imagine given his age.
