I will expect that in a matter of months, the tennis world will be seeing a changing of guards as to who will sit on top of the men's singles ranking. No, its not Rafael Nadal who will be replacing the Fedex, but its Novak "Nole" Djokovic of Serbia who will be replacing the legend, Roger Federer.
The man-god Federer has considerably shown a vulnerability to his game, something we have not seen since he won Wimbledon 2003, wherein his reign "virtually" started. Novak in the meanwhile, has shown so much promise, it will be hard to see him NOT get another grandslam before the year ends!
Roger is only 26. It is not that he will retire soon, I think it is time for him to lose the top ranking, something he was so good in doing for the past 5 years. It does not mean he will stop winning grand slams! Since I believe Novak is FAR from the Roger who dominated tennis from 2004 to 2007. I believe Fedex will still win one to two more Wimbledons, and at least a French Open.
I'm a big Roger Federer fan. But I think it is high time to see a changing of guards and see other men contend for tennis' highest honors!
Have a great day!
