Exclamation Things Federer has yet to achieve

Once Nadal completed the Career Grand Slam there are little things he has not achieved yet:

Masters Cup
Miami
Cincinnati
Paris Masters.

But there are more things Federer hasn't achieved yet!:

Olympic singles gold medal
Davis Cup (he and Wawrinka are good enough to win it)
Montecarlo
Rome
Paris Masters.
*A French Open with non-injured Nadal.

I was following until you dropped that gem about French. Oh wait. Rafa won US Open without Federer or Federer's back was injured at Wimbledon and Nadal won. Oh wait. That does not count. Because Roger's injuries were real and Nadal's were fake, right?

Re: Things Federer has yet to achieve

How about cheating and getting away with it? That's still a select club of players Federer has yet to join the ranks of.

Re: Things Federer has yet to achieve

Wait:

Federer didn't do these yet:

#1 cheated his way to titles
#2 faked injuries
#3 being named in a doctor's report
#4 tried not to get in a van with other people's images on them
#5 gotten lucky with his draws to complete his career slam
#6 has not been injured every-time he lost
#7 did not get triple deuced by Del Potro
#8 did not pick his behind during games
#9 did not waste 30 seconds each service point
#10 did not piss in his family's face to support a rival soccer team

You forgot:

#11 Don't cry in ceremony when losing
#12 Don't break rackets in court
#13 Don't tanks matches to avoid Nadal in US OPEN final

Unlike Fed in RG, Nadal won Wimbledon twice so which one are you talking about?
Also, Federer never had an injury as serious as Nadal's injury last year, when Federer clearly benefited to win his only FO title and lucking out against Acasuso, Haas and Del Potro. That was the lowest tennis level ever showed to win Roland Garros. Everyone knows Nadal was the best on clay last year and he only lost/Fed won because he was injured.
Nadal has won at least 2 Slams on 3 different surfaces. Federer´s only Slam on clay happened with an injured Nadal and struggling to beat average claycourters in the process. Federer still needs to prove himself on clay.

Re: Things Federer has yet to achieve

Pete Sampras holds the Open Era record for most years with a GS title

1990, 93-2000, 2002 10 years

Fed's GS years

2003-2010 8 years, need a slam in 2011 and 2012 to tie Sampras's record, add 2013 to break the record

RAfael Nadal needs 4 more years with a slam title.

Re: Things Federer has yet to achieve

Federer learns that deserving a Slam is not the same as getting fanatics & great legends to cheer for your Slam win.
Beating Roddick isn't the same as beating a good player.
