Winners or Errors

Hall of Fame
Many years ago Agassi used the "he's writing checks that his body can't cash" phrase about Nadal.
He's clueless on the subject of longevity.....pure guesswork.
And its definitely possible to win a major at age 40, that I can tell you.
yeah, Agassi was pretty well broken physically well before 40, so he probably has no idea how it’s possible. His experience was different. That last year he could barely walk.

Well tbf, Nadal really SHOULD be shagged. Every man and his dog thought he was going to be wrecked by the time he was 30 odd, but he's managed to stave off sandbag-oblivion god knows how many times, so that's a bit harsh on Agassi really.

He's got a sense of humor, I'm sure he's laughing at himself now.
I've been making fun of people like Agassi for the last 10 or 12 years.

Look at the reason of retirement of any great player: it's the cartilages that are gone.
Vertebra's, knees, hips, etc
It's not that they can't sustain efforts or lost their reflexes.

Fed was one point away from winning a slam at 37 and 11 months.

That's far, far from the number 40.

I said "possible", not probable.
Federer is proof that Nadal will still be a slam contender at age 40.
Federer is 37 and still a Wimbledon contender.....despite being far less athletic than Nadal.....and far less dominant at Wimbledon than Nadal is at Roland Garros.
Its very possible for Nadal to win a slam at age 40.....and I won't say any more about that.....because this is THE Federer thread.
