From 2004-2007, Roger Federer was untouchable at the Slams. In ’04, ’06, and ’07 he walked away with three of the four majors for the year, and in ’05 won two, and had match point for the third but lost.
But no reign is eternal, no empire lasts forever. The past two years have seen Federer’s dominance fade, as 2010 saw his streak of consecutive semifinal appearances broken and Roger add only one trophy to his case. 2011 has seen him lose matches up two sets to none and his collection stagnate at 16 slams.
This is the first time that he has not won one of four Grand Slams during a tournament year, but it won’t be the last. Roger Federer will never win another major, and these are the reasons why.
