    Andreas Seppi to retire

    He's a player who has always been around the top 100 for at least 20 years. The Italian Tennis Federation in their wisdom decided not to give him a wildcard to play at Naples or Florence despite being a long standing member of their Davis Cup team. He could be described as a Journeyman but...

    What years are the final years on tour for Djokovic and Nadal?

What seasons do you predict Nadal and Djokovic to retire in? I think Nadal for the next couple...

    Roger answers some of the questions that have been nagging at TTW Fed fans

    To get off the beaten track of the traditional Q&A, L'Equipe proposed a game to him: a series of statements that he is free to approve or not before commenting on them. If you hadn't met Mirka, you wouldn't have won 20 Grand Slam titles. Phew... yes, I think so. She was so supportive, pushing...

    Venus Williams should quit

    Federer's announcement of his retirement from profesional tennis yesterday is a gauntlet thrown down for the older of the Williams sisters, who is a year older than Fed.

    If Agassi didn't have the back issue in late 2005/through 2006 would he have played on or was retirement dead set for 2006?

    Andre had a solid 2005, finished in the top 10 once again surely he could have maintained a top 10 position during 2006 if he remained fit and motivated? Was he always going to retire in 2006 or was the back issue the reason? I think he could have stayed on, even with his pains he was still...

    David Ferrer is Retiring :(

    Just saw this: Really loved Ferrer's tenacity and work ethic. Was in a slump since he switched to Babs and then back to his Wilson - and couldn't break the big guys even in his prime because of lack of weapons, but still, very endearing. I will miss him on tour...

    Guess at which age each of The Big 3 retire.

    Select an option for each. I'm guessing Fed 39, Nadal 39+ and Djokovic 34-37. I think Fed will be play out all of next year and consider calling it quits at the US Open 2019. Ideally he would pull a Sampras and call it a career going out on top but I have a hard time imagining him being...

    The Big 3 as competition to the pro tour?

    I suspect that once Fed, Nadal and Djokovic decide to retire there's a good chance they will decide to continue playing in the Champions tour or maybe just play exhibitions amongst themselves. Given how weak and boring most of the players that follow them are wouldn't many prefer to see a 45...
