Will Nadal's victory give Federer motivation to push past 16?

Now that Nadal has secured the career slam and slam #9, it is clear that Roger's 16 is the next number in his sights.

Federer said he won't watch the final, I call bullshit. He knows exactly what happened and he knows Nadal is now 7 slams short. Still a long way, sure, but when he is healthy, who can beat Nadal?

Roger will want to get a little bit of a cushion between him and Nadal, especially seeing as Nadal is still only 24.

I predict Roger will bounce back next year and win at least one slam.

Legitimate point. Sampras did say that Agassi pushed him in this way.

Tennis has Great Games & Great Personalities.

We also have Andy Murray.

His best chance is AO+USO. Nadal owns clay and grass, so best chance for Federer is to win another hard court slam.

Yes, but he will be unable to in 2011 because Soderling will win the Calender Year Grand Slam. He will need to wait until 2012.

I still think Rogie's the favorite to win the AO, W, and USO in 2011, obviously Rafa's the favorite for the FO, but Rogie's still the favorite for the other 3.

Who cares? Hopefully it will motivate Murray and Novak to get better so they can beat him.

Federer will rise to number one next year.
Nadal can't repeat this 2010... It was too amazing.
It's true, he faced nobodies or tired ones, his only reasonable final was Madrid.

I think he can win 2 or 3 but will it be enough to hold off Rafa. I mean if he is not going to stop Rafa from becoming GOAT, then why bother.

Re: Will Nadal's victory give Federer motivation to push past 16?

the difference here is that pete never felt threatened that andre would catch up on his slam count...

man, it would be a bummer for fed if his record is erased before he could even enjoy retirement...

Nah. If it did happen, it answers a lot of question. Rafa does own Roger record wise. If he passed Roger, then so be it. He is the better player. Let's face it. Roger has been very casual in the past couple of years, underestimating Nadal. He should have gone for all 3 slams he could have won. Like he gifted it to Del po last year or he gifted one to Nadal in AO. But now, I am not sure he can actually keep Rafa from catching him. Just know this. Things change very quickly. Rafa doesn't win the next 2 slams, and he might not reach 14

I don't think Fed's worried about it, he only wants to do what he can.


XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXÈ


Federer

Del Potro

Gulbis

Janowicz

I hope so. I want to see more of Fed. He isn't completely done yet. I'm sure he still has a couple of slams left to grab.

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco
