For a guy like Ferrer? Absolutely. That guy could play until he's 40.
But for Federer, it is not good enough to be able to do awesome in 3-set tourneys... only to have problems in 5-set tourneys. The guy doesn't need tens of millions anymore. That is chump change. Not only that, but I'm sure he'll make pretty decent money even after he retires.
Once again I am amazed by the people who are inside Federers head. Keep the reports comming.
