Federer is not the GOAT. Discuss.

Quote

At the moment, he's still beating most players ranked below him so I see him continuing until he starts losing regularly to the likes of Berdych, Del Potro, Tsonga etc. Unless injury forces him out, I can see him playing for several more years yet.

I agree.  Very few players below him in the rankings look like coming close to him at the moment and that could continue for a while yet.

I am guessing if Fed can stay injury free then he will retire at the WTF next year. Fed has slowed down perceptibly. In the second half of this year, he has been beaten twice by Andy, beaten by Nole and twice by Delpo. I just can't see him winning many tournaments next year - maybe two or three, and definitely will get knocked out by the SF stage of all 4 GSs, by Nole, Andy, Delpo and Berdych.

His ego will get a massive hit and by the end of next year, others will take him out too making it impossible for him to continue if he wants to keep the GOAT title and respect lol

That is correct. He only lost to Djokovic on clay this year.

You have a point.
Whenever, I am confident that Andy is gonna win against the top players, it always turns out to be the opposite and vice-versa...
I am not at all in for a surprise.
