    Federer almost did it at 31 so its possible
    yeah, and are there any real talents from the next generation?

    can't seem to see any, none of them look threatening - certainly not so, when compared to federer's generation at the same age or nadal/djokovic/murray

    so djokovic definitely has a real chance at winning gold in 2016, provided he avoids any major injury of course

    Nadal will win Barcelona,Rome, Madrid and regain the points he lost today and beat novak at RG.
    furthermore nadal is still in the race for year end no1

    there is no such thing as goat in tennis.
    People have different opinions on the topic - certainly we can have a GOAT for each generation, but when it comes to comparing players across eras, that's where the arguments come in.

    I think he'd have done well in this one as well - he'd probably have had a different game style, we'll never know for sure.
    I want to know what his form is like at the moment, we've seen that he can beat Novak at his best (in 2011), so if he joins the party very soon, Roland Garros could be extremely interesting.

    Yeah, Roger will probs be No. 3 in time, seeing as he needs to defend Madrid and a SF appearance at Rome.

    I really hope federer can put an end to novak. I for one dont want to see 2011 again.

    Murray didn't enter Madrid and if he does, will be seeded and thus automatically enter the 2nd round, which gives him automatically enough points to retake Federer even if Murray loses immediately and Federer wins again.

    Unlikely, though. He's unlikely to get past Murray or Djokovic on hard courts, and honestly I think he'll struggle with both at Wimbledon too. He's only defending points at RG, nothing to put on there. The WTF is in London still, and it's probably the 3rd fastest major hardcourt on tour, so definitely not Rafa's favourite surface. I mean, I think Rafa could probably reach 3rd by the end of the year, but 1st just seems a step too far.
