Federer's season put into perspective

Otacon

Rosewall, Laver, Connors and Agassi are the best former players known for their longevity in the Open Era. So how Federer's 2017 season compare to theirs at the same age ?



Thoughts ?

Agassi was done in the year he turned 36. He retired in that season.

Connors won 2 small titles in the year he tuned 36. Did nothing of note in the majors.

Federer won multiple slams in the year he turned 36. He is the oldest player to win multiple majors in a season.

Roseall is Fed's competition right now in terms of longevity.

Fed could play until 50 in Rosewall's era. Three majors on grass and less baseline attrition...

The winning % is of only distant secondary importance compared to what actual tournaments a player wins unless the OP is equating 4/10 (4 slams ) as equivalent to 4/10 (4 ATP 500) just because the % is the same.

It's not quite accurate to put Andre on the list. His last hurrah was the 2005 USO when he was 35. He was playing with steroid injections before every match in 2006 and was clearly in pain. No movement and no ability to run to his FH. A shell of his former self.

Yeah but that's the whole point, putting Federer's season into perspective.

More proof that the RG is the least important slam. Nobody in that list could be bothered any longer to play it.

Also Federer GOAT.
More proof that RG is the toughest slam to play and win. Hence older players are afraid to even participate.

Laver asks to compare results at the age of 31.
Connors asks to compare the number of FO skipped.
Agassi asks to compare wife.

Kinda shows how much the tour has changed when 2006 Agassi plays half of the majors and a good chunk of the season and gets ranked 150 while Rosewall, Laver and Connors did about the same or less and still managed to remain in the top 10.
