The transitional champ is facing disaster at Madrid.

There is no reason to believe that the arrogant man from switzerland will repeat his fluke win last year.

He has failed miserably in defending his titles at IW and Miami, jeopardising the hard won reputations of these tournaments. The choke at montreal was of epic proportions.

He is facing super argentine Canas . If he somehow miraculously survives that matchup, he has to face ever reliable Ferrer and Davydenko. Not to mention other stalwarts like Volandri, Safin waiting to repeat the dose of past defeats.

This is a good draw that exposes transitional champions.

If he finds his way into the final(in the realms of unrealistic), Nadal or Gasquet will make mincemeat of the overrated swiss.

How can you count out Melzer and Ginepri? They are sure to take down the lucky (four straight year) #1.

Federer is TOAST.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

"Transitional champ" must be expression of the year.

Re: The transitional champ is facing disaster at Madrid.

I think Federer is a clown and all his 12 majors and 193 weeks at No.1 are pure luck and clown era.

I'm all for freedom of speech and personal opinions but stating "I think Federer is a clown and all his 12 majors and 193 weeks at No.1 are pure luck and clown era." is not an opinion, it's just INSANELY STUPID.

Re: The transitional champ is facing disaster at Madrid.

I don't see irony in your statement...maybe sarcasm if that is what you were going for.

Well, the topic was very stupid so I decided to write a message in similar style to it. I'm a huge Federer fan and I find it funny the fact people hate him because he's the most talented sportsman I've ever seen. I hope he wins 25 GS, and I do believe he can achieve it. I mean he has to win 3 GS the next four years ( which is possible, though hard ) and beat that Margaret Court record ( afaik it 24, so he needs one more, but it's possible )

Re: The transitional champ is facing disaster at Madrid.

in that case I withdraw my statement...I thought you were one of those guys that likes to post insanely illogical statements about federer, but I was wrong, so sorry about that. but you'd be surprised how many people make stupid comments like "he's lucky to win 12 slams"...some people are just incredible.

Welcome to MTF I don't know if you had a look on the board before you joined, otherwise you would have discovered some of the stuff which is going on here.

GM is a place for trolls and haters - and this particular thread was started by one of the users who fits perfectly into this category-, but fortunately not everything on GM is hopeless and if you will stay around you will find out it soon
