Re: how many grand slams will federer win in 2009

Wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if he doesn't win one at all. I don't think his 2008 US Open title win is as big an achievement as many make out, when you consider that he struggled for form all year up until that point, benefited from favourable conditions in New York (soft draw, struggling Nole, tired Murray), and then proceeded to struggle for form post-US Open.

But, as always, he will out there gunning for the Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open titles. As for the French Open...well, his chances have dropped fairly significantly over the last 12 months imo.

I gather you mean the USO 2008...
Why is it that when Fed wins something, it's always because his opponents were tired, out-of-form, etc... while when he loses, it's NEVER due to himself suffering illness or an injury? Pretty much double standards, here.
Anyone who witnessed him during the AO this year could see he wasn't well at all. And his post USO-struggles, didn't you notice his back injury?

As for the question - could be anything, ranging from zero to three (RG is only a possibility if Rafa would be injured, and I'm not at all expecting anything the like). Just wait and see. I'll be happy if he takes just one, anything else is an extra.

That should be addressed to the Fed-bashers...my opinion on him is unbiased.

I wasn't following tennis as closely as I have done in the past, post-US Open...but I thought the back injury only came to light in the last few weeks of the season?

He withdrew from Stockholm after the USO claiming 'fatigue'. We don't know when that back injury came to exist, but he withdrew halfway Madrid Paris because of it, and apparently it reappeared at the TMC in full force again (despite Roger claiming it was all gone just before he entered the tournament... ). And those who have read his biography know that this surely wasn't the first time he suffered back pains, but apparently the fellow rather bites off his tongue than to express worries about his health. Whether that's wise or not... I don't know.

Oh, and sorry, I know you're not a hater. My remark was meant to be directed to anyone drawing the 'tired and injured'-card when it concerns their favourite players losing, but at the same time, conveniently ignoring it when it concerns players they dislike...
