With Fererro retiring Federer's group grows even smaller. My question is do you think he will stay on tour the longest among his peers? If not who will outlast him.

Off the top of my head Haas, Davydenko, Ferrer, Fish, Blake, Nalbandian, Youzhney, Benettaeu, and Hewitt are among his generation still on tour.

Imo Ferrer might outlast him. Once Federer drops out of slam contention he may call it quits and despite saying he'd like to play in RIO 2016.

Ferrer on the other hand is avoiding the hand of father time, and has more stamina and endurance than he did in his mid 20s.

Haas will be the one playing the longest I think. Talking about age, not time since he is older than the rest, so he'll retire before them. Ferrer and Federer still have some years left in the tank. Blake and Davydenko will retire next year I think. Nalbandian I don't know. Maybe 2 more years.

If Nadal starts to focus more and more on the clay-court season, he'll easily outlast Federer. Unless Federer decides to play only a handful of matches a year.

Nadal belongs to the Djokovic generation. Which he clearly isn't the best of.

I vote no, not because Fed can't but I don't see him getting a reason, a motivation to do so. The guy has almost everything in his resume - Why would he want to keep playing till mid-30s. I'm surprised that he wants to play till Rio - with what aim? Get a gold? No way.
 
Davydenko might play the longest IMHO.
He's one of those that won't mind even if he drops out of the top 100. As soon as Fed drops out of the top 20 in 4-5 yrs time, he might call it quits

Fed will not stay on tour if he drops out of top 10.

Even though his love for the sport is HUGE, he has way too much ego that wouldnt allow him to stay on tour.
