Roger Federer has reached an interesting point in his historic career.
His recent French Open performance delayed suspicions, however unfounded they might have been, that he is indeed reaching the twilight of his playing days.

But now it's time for Wimbledon, Federer's best major tournament. In order to truly silence the critics, Federer needs to come up big, with a finals victory (ideally versus Nadal).
But, other than public perception, what else does Roger Federer have riding on the 2011 Championships at Wimbledon?
