Its interesting to see how some Grand Slam Champions have fared, especially since before Federer we passed a period resembling women's tennis, where there were no dominant players. Novak Djokovic (SRB) - Very competitive and a favourite for most slams now. Rafael Nadal (ESP) - Very competitive and a favourite as well, especially for RG and Wimbledon. Roger Federer (SUI) (I can hear the squees from here) - Been left in the dust a bit, but he's still very good and one of the best in the game atm. Juan Martin Del Potro (ARG) - Could have been a serious threat, but is mainly a dark horse now, lurking outside the top players. Andy Roddick (USA) - Still got the best serve, but now sits around 30. Undeniably still great, but doesn't compete at the very top anymore. Married to Brooklyn Decker (It had to be said). Juan Carlos Ferrero (ESP) - Like Roddick, he's been around 40 for a while now. He still performs well on the clay and hard, but is ground to mush against the top players. Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) - I can't believe this guy's still going. He happily stagnates in the 100's, getting his annual cheer at the Aus Open every year. What strikes me is that Federer is still very competitive, while the others have fallen behind. Safin, Moya etc were doing similar things before they retired. Also, all of the dominant players outside of Federer now are obsessive baseliners.
