you are a long time retired, he had weeks off this year with injury, will take 3 times as long just to get back, performance will riose again from September onwards

keep playing and earning, why not?

how many weeks was he off? 6 or 8? multiply by 3 to see when he could expect to reach pre injury levels

he's simply playing a reduced schedule so he's fresher and can spend more time with his kids

Report judorick June 4, 2013 10:23 PM BST
I'm no fan but there is no reason for him to retire just because he doesn't win as much as he used to

I'm certain that he is not operating at optimal levels physically and he probably needs several months niggle free to regain the energy and movement he had 12 months ago

speaking as a Physical Therapist on general principle that is of course, not having specific knowledge

Report judorick June 4, 2013 10:48 PM BST
it's too late to retire on top as he clearly isn't, if he was going to do that he should have stood on Centre Court last year and announced it, that would have been going out on top

probably see how he does at Wimbledon

The US Open should be his last tournament, when players like the last 2 weeks are not scared of him at all should be the sign for him to bow out.  Don't want to see him around trying to win the Hall of Fame championships in the next two years just to win another tournament.

yes USO should be just last try. I hope so.
Report sammybizzle July 25, 2013 5:18 PM BST
Fcuk the trophies and tournament wins.I now think he should retire sooner than later because of his back.

I really think that is the underlying factor here.It was at wimbeldon against Benneteu right? Not long ago at all.I think it's got worse, he hardly moved or tried today.In his home town?

Racquets is one thing but the back is the real issue imo.He should quit before a serious injury.

Fed resorting to trying to vulture Newport would be a sad sight indeed.
Report DonNo1 July 25, 2013 7:13 PM BST
Given the decline of his serve and movement you have to feel like the back is giving up.  No reason to retire just yet but might be better off resting up before the USO instead of trying to get match practice in

Federer made it clear that he hasn't made any plans to finish his career. After all, he's already started making arrangements to compete in tournaments in 2014 such as the Brisbane International, which he'll be playing at for the first time in his career.

I don't think he's injured or there's a problem with his racquet. I think he's just more interested in the size of his bank account than tennis. Probably spends more time negotiating new sponsorships and checking on investments than training.

I think many of his problems have come from taking too many breaks between tournaments. He lacks match prowess, seems to crumble under pressure and the way to regain that is simply to play more matches.

He has said that he is not bothered about the rankings, and is trying to stay in the top eight for after the US Open, but his game is more important and he is trying to get it back on track.
