    There is that but at 35, will he want to keep going?

    There was also an awesome TDF stage today, some superb riding all round.

    Was at Silverstone today as a journalist and it was epic. Great to see Lewis win again and I shook Nico Rosber's hand

    That must have been some experience. Plus Hamilton's win was made all the sweeter with what happened to Vettel.

    Given that the reason he took the 6 month break and missed the entire clay court season was because he had concerns about his longevity in the sport I think that shows that in his mind he wants to keep playing as long as possible. He knows what his strengths are so I can see him taking more breaks inbetween tournaments and only playing those that he's more likely to win. The grass season for example is something that he'll always play I think since that's his strongest surface.
    He's still on top of his game and is by far the best player so far this season so there's no reason for him to stop now. Why not keep going and extending his incredible records? I wonder if he'll be able to eventually get back to #1? That's one thing he can aim for. Will be difficult if he doesn't play as many tournaments as others of course but that may be a goal in his mind. That would be a huge achievement and he'd be the oldest man to in the open era (I believe) to hold that ranking if he does, but with Djokovic and Murray struggling for form though then there's every chance that he could achieve it.
    I don't think this is likely, but Federer could switch to doubles in a couple of years maybe to try and win some doubles slams? As I said, unlikely but that's something else he could go for.

    Nadal looks like he's getting back to his best too with how he played in the clay season at least so if Murray and Djokovic fail to recover their old form we could see a rekindling of Nadal and Federer dominance. They've both dominated the ATP tour this season with Federer wining 2 slams and Nadal the other. Will be very interesting to see who wins the US slam.

    Was very shocked at how Venus discombobulated in her final btw. Very unusual to see a player of that stature crumble like she did.

    Froome has won three in a row, and four in five at the Tour de France. Amazing stuff indeed. It's a damn shame he won't get all the praise he deserves for his effort. Also he would have won in 2012 if he didn't have to follow team orders for Wiggins haha, says it all about the man. Best GC rider Britain have ever had really.

    Also Simon Yates followed his brother Adam in winning the best young riders (Under 25) jersey, so the future is bright for us in the GC game.

    Froome is attempting to win the Vuelta now too...currently 17 seconds down after two stages, but is ahead of his main rivals at the moment, plenty of time to go yet so anything can happen.

    Lewis Hamilton on course to becoming F1 world champion after a crazy incident caused by Sebastian Vettel at the start of the Singapore Grand Prix today.

    Hamilto surely has to be the best British sportsman in the world right now. Nobody remotely close in my opinion.

    Vettel with two nasty weekends in a row haha...shame it pretty much hands the title to Hamilton though.

    In other news its Bomber vs Hayemaker II before the year is out, much like the first one, I don't care who wins as someone is being shut up again.
