Re: Borg: 'Federer will win 16 Grand Slams'

This is quite funny, especially Meligieni who can finally say " I am a senior and he couldn't believe he could beat Muster, hehehe".

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Thanks.. Death Note is one of my favourites, just recently finished watching Monster as well which is just amazing really.

EDIT: By the way, you too have a great avatar, hamsters definitely rock.

Anyway I will keep this on topic now.

Re: Borg: 'Federer will win 16 Grand Slams'

The man just turned 26 and has 11 grand slam titles already.. 16 is surely conservative.

plausibly he could get

1 more this year

2 or 3 next year (turns 27)

2 or 3 the year after (turns 28)

2 or 3 the year after (turns 29)

maybe 2 the year after (turns 30)

Probably at least 2 more in the following years. This is Federer were talking, were not talking about some mere human and he will surely get around 20.

Well, I am guessing 18. However, things can change very quickly in sport and more great prospects will rise and prosper.

Re: Borg: 'Federer will win 16 Grand Slams'

I think anywhere from 15-16 is likely based on the rise of the young guns and "The Donald" in 2-3 years.

Wasn't McEnroe highly touting "The Donald"? JMac is usually spot on with his talent asssessments. I think No. 5 might happen in 3-4 years, assuming he finishes growing and develops more power in all his shots.
