For Roger Federer, it's a well-worn experience. If successful here, Federer would become the oldest victor of a major championship, eclipsing Australia's Ken Rosewall, who must think he stopped too young and at 84 still looks as if he might come out of retirement any day now.
"Maybe the way I play tennis is smoother than the other guys", he said.
"And I will continue to hope that the powers that be will find a way to capitalise on his success to create a lasting tennis legacy in Scotland and help to make us a fitter, healthier and more ambitious nation".
Federer also added: "I think finishing healthy".
He now ranks fourth on the Association of Tennis Professionals' all-time earnings list, trailing only Novak Djokovic ($125.8 million), Roger Federer ($120.5 million) and Rafael Nadal ($103 million). He's a good guy, Hall of Famer, legend.
"It's a tough one, but one down the road he can look back on and be incredibly proud of everything he has achieved". In past tournaments, some have grumbled that a nights-only program is also a favour done for Federer, but no one else.
"It's kind of hard to put into words, but I can definitely tell the difference whether it's just soreness from training or soreness from that (arthritis)". Wishing him good luck for future, Nadal said that the tennis world is surely going to miss him. "I feel like just levelling that out is one of my biggest goals I had during the off-season".

"I think you just always try to figure out what's working and what's not, then you listen to the body, you try a few different things", Wozniacki said. "I couldn't believe he actually played".
"I'm still feel a little behind but that will come with more matches - hopefully more in the main draw".
Wozniacki, 28, insisted there was no extra pressure returning Down Under as the title holder, saying she was treating her upcoming campaign as "a nice, fun challenge".
After her breakthrough here past year, she didn't get beyond the fourth round at the other majors, but says she feels like she's hitting the ball well. Williams has reached the finals of the past two Grand Slam, and she looked relatively sharp at the Hopman Cup in Perth in the first week of January. This time a year ago, Wozniacki came into the Australian Open still chasing her maiden major title.
Now she's back, seeded 16th, aiming for an eight Australian title.
