Federer : At my age, victories like this counts double...

I guess this is true for his fans too. I really admire what he has done in his late career. As insanely talented and out of world he was in his prime, I think what sets him apart is that he really never fell off the radar. 20 years after his early years in slams, he put himself in a position to lift the most prestigious trophy in tennis and was merely a point away. Even now, the passion is still intact, perhaps has only grown. Mad respect.

Fed fans, savour it while it lasts....tennis fans too, actually.

Winning the YEC at 38 would be a very decent way to hide the disappointment of Wimbledon.


It is BO 3 anything can happen but Fed should be the fresh one with the Paris break and hopefully he can do it.

Well, I wouldn't believe it if he ever lost the confidence that he needs to beat the best. Federer could hang around in the Top 10 into his 40s and I think he could still be in the top 100 at 50. The man's talented.

But hey, if it helps his confidence, then go for it, Roger! Take this with you into the next few matches, win the tournament, and carry it into Australia!
 
Shame Federer couldn’t have found the belief by playing Djokovic in 2017. Not saying any results change but it’s interesting to think about.

All hypothetical but part of Wimbledon did seem like some lack of belief . But we are not in his cranium so who knows
