Roger Federer Turns Out To Be Awful Tennis Player

Federer's season was very disappointing. Without entertaining myself by trying to explain it away (which can legitimately be done to a certain extent), it's worth noting that he's still the No. 2 player in the world! The player ahead of him is closer to the peak of his career than Federer and is actually quite good. It's not like he's in free fall, he ended the year better than he started it.

I'm too sensitive about criticism of Federer, but some Important People have been suggesting that he retire. I'm glad that the Onion agrees with me about how stupid this is.
"After he convincingly won five straight Wimbledons, and three majors apiece in 2004, 2006, and 2007, I thought he was actually a passable player. However, it turns out that was all a fluke and he is terrible," Boston Globe columnist Bud Collins wrote last July after Federer finished an execrable second at Wimbledon. "I would rather saw off my own leg than have to watch Roger Federer play what he calls 'tennis.'" Federer's year was made worse when, after being unable to defeat Novak Djokovic in straight sets during their U.S. Open semifinals match, professional golfer Tiger Woods called Federer and ended their friendship.
