Roger Federer: Has He Become an Afterthought in Men's Tennis?
Roger Federer No Longer Dominates The Men's Draw, But Have We Forgotten About Him?
It seems like the only time we talk about Roger Federer is when he loses.
When the man who used to dominate the top events in tennis has a let down, we rush to the carcass like vultures, only to take more shots at him. We say he's finished, that other stars have passed him by and that we'll never see the type of form that allowed him to become one of the most recognizable athletes in the world
While the latter may be true, it doesn't mean that Federer can't still be successful in the men's draw. Just because he's had his share of struggles in recent weeks doesn't mean that he can't show up to the French Open and make it all the way to the final.
We've seen Federer do it in the past, and honestly, it's a bit unfair that he's taken a backseat in the draw to Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. While those players deserve every bit of attention they get, there's no reason that Federer can't be right up there getting the same type of press.
I want to hear more about Federer than when he loses in a tournament. It seems like everyone is ready to push the eject button on his career and it's a bit premature when you look back at some of the other careers of recent men's greats.
Think about the runs Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi had late in their careers and then take a look at Federer.
The man isn't done yet. Not by a longshot.
