Smile Will Federer break the slam record?

Informed tennis analysts always knew that that when Roger Federer plays a half-decent opponent who refuses to choke, he can be exposed badly. While the transitional champ had an incredible amount of luck in pulling off stunning upsets of santoro, blake, berdych (with a little help of timely tuition from sampras), it was too good to last. Good fortune is not unlimited. Djokovic finally showed the resolve missing in so many terrified chokers and the transitional champ lost miserably despite playing his best tennis.

It of course goes without saying that Federer is not going to win any more slams. GOAT Sampras will keep his well deserved record won with genuine toil and sweat in the era of lions. 12 Slams amassed in a ridiculously weak era cannot stand a decent comparison against that.And he loses to his first decent opponent who shows as a real man.

Ladies and gentlemen, the transition has begun just as i predicted !

But I think Mods will have to erase your threads as the time goes.

Heya, Pot Brownie- you're like the town crier with these threads.

Can't you wait at least half a day before drawing up the neverending Fedex/Sampras threads? Some of us are still reeling...

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

Hope not for one reason > Sampras is/was way better player.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

He's hitting the same wall that pete did at the same age.

Fed's done more in 4 years, then Sampras did in 10.

Re: Federer will not erase pete's record.

Sampras was a compiler. 14 majors, and he played about 14 years. NO RG final, ever.
What Federer was doing was way, way tougher.
He's been one match from a grand slam in 2 straight years. 10 straight slam finals with 8 titles.
This was his worst loss in years. How he rebounds from it will be a part of his legacy.
