The Asian swing and then the final Masters in London. Novak Djokovic is by far the first in the rankings, has won three Grand Slam tournaments this season, was only defeated in the final of the Roland Garros. Many believe that Djokovic will pass Federer and Nadal and will reign on the tennis world for long. International media already analyzed how much Nole, who has won ten Grand Slam titles, will need to reach Federer who has got 17.
Some even more malicious expected Roger to announce his retirement after the US Open, as Flavia Panetta did after winning the women's singles.
"No retirement at all. Federer is like good wine. He had a very good season, won several important tournaments and proved that he can play against Novak Djokovic although he is 34. A lot has changed in his game and it will take some time to get used to it. We want him to spend as little energy as possible and to force his game to the net with as many easy points. He had matches where he was great, but it's clear that Roger does not have a routine yet. We just need a little time, nothing more," said Roger Federer's coach, Stefan Edberg.
