I've been having this argument with people about why should Federer retire for the past 3 or 4 years now.
I remember Federer experimenting with his game at Toronto 2010, I think it was, playing a more aggressive shorter point game and honing that style for longevity.
Well it's worked and he's here to stay IMO for another couple years at least.
Won Wimbledon 2012 beating Djokovic and Murray, WTF final, took Murray to 5 sets at AO 2013, still beating practically everyone else with ease.
And I think he's enjoying his tennis.
He can still give Djokovic and Murray a run for their money. They need to be on top form to beat him.
