When will Federer lose before the semis of a grand slam?

When do you think Federer will lose before the semis of a grand slam again?
He doesn't have to face Murray, Djokovic, or Nadal before the semis so when will someone else put him out early?
Don't think it will happen this season.

Re: When will Federer lose before the semis of a grand slam?

Well a lot of people are claiming Federer's done, but he still has to reflect this by not getting to the final of consecutive Grand Slams, as he still has been quite impressive there, even though he has been beaten by Nadal (and Nadal only).

I seriously think Federer won't make the semis in this years French, but I think he still can do quite well in Wimbledon.

I'll say French Open 2009, tho it's best of 5 sets, so i wouldn't be surprised to see Fed come back from 2 sets down a few times.

I doubt it.
Hes reached the semis in Rome and Monte Carlo comfortably enough.
Who could he lose to before the semis?

He did not make the semis of Monte Carlo. He lost to Wawrinka there.

depends on draw...still I think he can keep making semis at least

If the streak ends this year, it has to be the French Open, he has an excellent chance to reach the Wimby and US Open semifinals.

Re: When will Federer lose before the semis of a grand slam?

federer is not playing bad chokes/tank aside. who can take him out before SF? wawrinka,monfils? who else?

look at agassi and samprass history btw..they made disastrous GS exits but still had a few wins in them... so losing once before SF doesn't mean it's over. are you kidding me?

20 straight SF looks prettier than 19 SF, that's about it.

justin bieber is not the best in history.
funk was better than rap.
techno not better than classic rock.

numbers are not everything.

Chances are it only happens at RG.

He would have to lose to someone outside of the "Big Four", that's a tough task even for him
I also think that it's possible for him to lose before the semis at RG, but probably not at his home tournament in London.

Well he was clearly instructing the rest of the players how to get it done today.
