Is Roger Federer Finished?

Stephan Weir Contributor INovember 9, 2016

Lately, a big question has been lingering over our heads: Has Roger Federer left his prime?

Some say that it's only a slump, while others say that he is finished; that he will not win another grand slam title. We've all seen him lose to Rafael Nadal in the French Open, but people were not very surprised.

Nadal is, and has been, the dominant player on clay. What we didn't see coming was Federer's loss to Nadal at Wimbledon.

Many began to have their doubts about Federer's ability to win another Grand Slam title. Others still hold that his months of bad playing will subside soon.

As if that weren't enough, American James Blake beat Federer in Beijing for the first time ever in straight sets, 6-4, 7-6, 7-2. Blake was previously 0-for-8 against the Swiss.

With strong evidence pointing against him, I think it is safe to say that Federer is probably not going to win any more Grand Slam titles.
