End of the year may be a good time for him to go - if he fails to make the O2 then he can refer to the back injury to save a bit of face and slip away without any further embarrassments. He can bang on all he wants about playing Rio in 2016, but his current form shows that he'd be a shell of his former self by 2015 at least.

It's a shame in a way, as he's been the main player in this recent 'Golden Era' for tennis, but I won't miss the media fawning over him and his fans turning a blind eye to his many arrogant proclamations.
I go along with that too.  It will seem a bit strange without him because he's been around for so long, but I'd rather see him go with a degree of dignity rather than just slide further and further down the rankings.

Sadly - Federer doesn't do dignity.  For him to retire he first needs to get in touch with reality - until then, he'll continue to have delusions of grandeur.

I think his recent failings at Wimbledon, Hamburg and Gstaad might just have been a wake-up call.  He looked absolutely gutted when he went out in Gstaad.  How humiliating to lose like this at 'his' tournament!  Only time will tell though.

i reckon he will try once more at wimbledon, after all, its HIS tournament. But then he might make US his last gasp effort. Who knows the inner workings of the mind of a dreamer

I maybe mistaken, but I feel that part of the reason for his continuing to play is his contractual obligations to his various sponsors.

It could be, but contracts can always be broken (legally).  I'm sure his sponsors aren't too happy about his recent results anyway, so might be relieved should be decide to retire in the foreseeable future if he doesn't start winning tournaments again.

I'd like to be impartial, but I can't!

Now, Roger is 32 years old. He has already won the victory 6 times. It is record. It is not a problem.
