While his rivals have missed tournaments due to injury or exhaustion, time and time again, the 30 year old Federer has played in nearly every tournament each season. In fact, in terms of Grand Slams, the only Grand Slam Federer missed, was in 1999, when he missed the US Open.
Points and Passion – One of the biggest appeals to Federer rival Novak Djokovic this season, was that he had a ton of points to grab in order to catch Federer and Nadal. As Djokovic’s win total increased so too did the points.

For most players, it is harder to repeat as a champion, then it is to win the there first championship. However, with Roger Federer, he has already stated, he plans to be in tennis for the next five to seven years. This in turn suggests that he has the drive and passion needed to regain his world number one ranking.
