Roger Federer celebrated his 30th birthday in typical low-key fashion on Monday but the Swiss tennis great has no intention of fading quietly away from the game.

With 67 career titles, including a record 16 Grand Slams, Federer has already proven he is a man for all seasons but can he stand the test of time?

Federer will begin to answer that question this week at the Rogers Cup. Still number three in the world rankings and an opponent others still want to avoid, Federer's 30th hardly had the air of a retirement party.

"I think Federer, at 30-years-old, still is young," Connors told reporters.

"But now it's not just one guy he has to beat. He has (Novak) Djokovic, (Rafa) Nadal, (Andy) Murray, a host of guys are looking for his scalp,” said Jimmy Connors.
