Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

In fact Fed shouldn't have reached 12 slams. Last year's Wimby and USOpen were gifts from heaven.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

Even if he doesn't win another slam, it will be written that ATP rigged the draws against him on slams at least 4 times, which changes perspective and makes you wonder how much sense it makes after that anyway

Grand Slam Season as of 2008:

Australian Open
Roland Garros
JOKE SLAM
U.S. Open

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

well I don't doubt that he won't win 14+ slams. But that's not because of today's defeat or his level dropping, it's because winning slams is so hard, you never know when you stop winning them. People seems to forget about that.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

I wouldn't take mediter at all seriously. The poor man has been rambling on about the end of the "transitional" era and predicting Fed's demise for about 3 years now... lol (like the headcase on the sidewalk proclaiming that the end of the world is next week)

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

It was expected, if Roger won the AO he would be the favourite for the golden slam, and to win more than 20 slams while now that he lost he will never win a slam again. In my mind I still expect him to win 15-16 slams.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

he'll probably break it or tie it. He did seem like he was kind of playing on last name this tournment. Interesting to see if he does any re-tooling from now until the TMS.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

I remember when Pete lost to Krajicek at Wimbledon (that was 1996 right?) and everyone was predicting the end of his career. Federer is not going to go away any easier than Pete did, and 3 more Slams before he retires is not impossible.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

Yes indeed, and it's quite fascinating how quick we write people off. Fed wins 1 in 03, 3 in 04, just the 2 in 05, then 3 the last couple of years. Most people round here seem to think that 05 was one of his best years, yet he only won 2. So what does that mean? As he himself said, he's created his own monster. He's won so much that a single loss heralds the end of the tennis universe as we know it. As others have said, Pete won his slams over a 10 year period from the first one to the last, with some surprising losses in that mix; Federer's done almost as much in just over 4. Whatever mediter says (bless him for his wind-up capabilities), there is no indication that he won't win a few more before he's done - he's got at least another 5 years to get 3 more. I'd bet my house he'll manage that (if I were a betting type person), barring injury etc etc. And, if he doesn't, well, hey ho, it'd be a turn up for the books.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

how can people say this is a weak era? even sampras' comment that "there aren't any other grand slam winners around" is ignorant. the only reason why there aren't other GS winners around is because Federer stopped them all

just by watching a match these days you can see the level of tennis is much higher. everybody hits a hard serve, hard forehand, but also everybody can play GREAT defense. how djokovic plays daily would be considered being 'in the zone' 10 years ago

So true. As long as there is Wimbledon and Roger is healthy, he can definitely win 3 more.
