Has he? I find it hard to imagine Federer allowing his ranking to slip. He was world number one for an age.
The thing with snooker is that it's probably the most mentally taxing sport there is, and confidence has a huge part to play. There are players who I won't mention that I think could possibly do something like this, and none of them strike me as a World Champion with one very noticeable exception.
On the other hand, I could never see the likes of Dott, Ebdon, Higgins, Hendry tanking in a competitive match.
