    Federer may never win another slam

    I think that is why Wawrinka is my favorite. It keeps me out of the inevitable cycle of insanity if I stan too hard for a Big 3 member. And I can appreciate all 3 as the incredible GOAT players they are easily when I dont really care who holds the record and who is considered GOAT, or who wins...

    Can anyone name another athlethe in any sport, that is as physical as tennis, who played on such high level as Federer did at age of (almost) 38

    I am not a huge huge hockey fan, although I definitely keep up on it. Just what age was Jagr top until. I remember him being an enigma, very up and down career. Super talented, probably could have been one of he best ever rather than merely a great, if he were more commited. What age was he...

    Novotna vs Martinez vs Sabatini

    I remember watching the Canadian Open semis in 97 when Conchita was down 6-2, 4-1 (double break) to Seles and all of the suddent started hitting her forehand the way she can but is reluctant to, especialy early in points. Still constructing points and opening up the court, but finishing them...

    How many slams will Djokovic win?

    Even though I am a Djokovic fan that would be great in that it must mean the up and comers finally came to the fore and super strong. Way stronger than most people expect.

    Top 5 Americans in open era ???

    Courier of course. Although if Roddick had been born into an era without Federer it might have been him.

    Reddit is thrash anyway. The opinions on whether Lebron is still the best player in the league or not amongst serious fans have varied for a few years now.

    Why does someone like Roddick fade and retire, the Big 3 not?

    Lots of contributing factors. One thing is around that point the mens game was not weak like it is today, so if you had the natural decline with age and injury you were in big trouble.

    Margaret Court Continues to Stay Ahead of the Pack at 24

    I and most others do. Nobody calls Rosewall the GOAT, most have Newcombe lower than Edberg or Becker. Most dont have Laver as the GOAT over Federer today. so already done for most people.

    I think Guerrouj could have run at the top level until 38 for sure, and been a regular medalist still if not winner. How old is Mo Farrah when he retired still dominant 2 years ago (although I cant stand him, and think he is a bigtime doper).

    Nick presenting Mary Pierce is almost funny after the potshots he took at her in his book.
