But why post it now. This needs to be in former pro section. Post about sinner Alcaraz in gppd. Federer retired virtually in 2020

19.5 slams for Fed and 22.5 for Rafa. Roger loses his spot in the 20 slams club. Rafa 0.5 WBs away from the 2.5 career slam club.

People will always remember Fedal because of what they have done for the sport.

Regardless if they are active or retire, their name will always be mention in every part of this forum.

"I would have been happy to lose" seems like a stretch and they both get uncomfortable at that moment. Federer's comeback with the "draw", was a very nice touch. Great match on many levels. I think most of us feared it was over for both...

I literally can’t believe Nadal won the AO FIVE YEARS after this. I would have said you were insane if you told me that in 2017.

I understand the sentiment by Federer and his sportsmanship. Although not technically a draw the Summer Olympics did award bronze medals in both singles and doubles for those who reached the Semi-Finals without have a bronze medal match. They did eventually end that practice that also has been done in other Olympic events. I always founded a bit funny having athletes share the same podium as they are awarded the same medal (most notably M. J Fernandez and A.S Vicario getting bronze in the 1992 Olympics). Capriati a fellow American won Gold as M.J Fernandez had her right hand over her heart while A.S Vicario was stoic, LOL.
