I dont know.

Rog is just a tennis nut.  A true outlier.  That is why he is willing to put up with the travel / time of the tour even with 4 kids. 

Rafa on the other hand, I dont think he has that kind of mentality.  You can see how much not just physically, but mentally and emotionally the toll of the tour takes on him.

You are probably right that he will hang on a few more years.  No matter what happens, he is always the odds on fav at the french.  But he is getting injured more often now.  And he isn't getting any younger.  I wouldn't be surprised if he call it a day if he won 10 French Opens. 

10 wins at a single Major is an unassailable record.  He could be comforted with that :D

But these injuries are occurring more frequently now than before. Sure he comes back, but then something else happens to him. The older he gets - the harder it will eventually become. All it takes is for you to become a half-step slower, or hitting the ball just a little slower and you've lost your edge. For Rafa, he can't afford to be a little slower with the game he plays. First it's the foot, then the knees, now the wrist...what will it be next, because you know it will be something.

Indeed.

Rafa's career coming to an end?  The older he gets the harder it has to be to keep coming back from injuries like this.  Maybe bags one more French Open to make it an even 10 and rides off into the sunset...


I said many years ago that Nadal's style of play, the abandon he plays with, and the effort in all of his shot making, are far more taxing on his body than Federer. I predicted than that he would be done by now. I was wrong.
But he does take longer to come back from injury than other players. Maybe he uses it to recover, and take a break. Maybe he doesn't want to risk further injury, Maybe he's just enjoying his time off too much. But I doubt he's done. That may come soon enough, but not now.
I think he will come back and dominate next year. Then something will happen just like it has the last couple years he's dominated. He's still got a few years left in his career though.

Meanwhile I imagine Federer will be out there until he is 50.  He is the male Navratilov!!
