They are going to be playing into their late 40s just to stop anyone thinking about taking more Grand Slams than them.

Successful Wimbledon for the GOAT. Stopped Mr. One Surface Wonder getting just 1 away and Djok still 4 away. Ubercool

I'm just surprised that the GOAT is still able to compete at such a high level. Took a guy almost 6 years his junior the full distance yesterday.

Even if fed won and got to 21, I couldn't see him add more after that. Nadal will pick up French every year for a few years and novak a couple each year for the next few years if they stay healthy, both surpassing 21 majors when all is done.
