Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

navratilova's opinion is fine and credible here but she's been a nadal fangirl for so long that i'm way too tired of her and her fangirling opinions.

Navratilova a Nadal fangirl ? it's really a shame because she was so different from him

And she suffered from Seles who actually was a Nadal-clone

in my eyes, Martina is still the greatest as Fed is the greatest male player

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

It not depends only on him but mostly on Djokovic and Nadal....

No that ship has sailed. He shouldn't have lost to Soderling.

wouldn't graff be greater than navratilova going by the numbers? i don't follow women's tennis anyway.

and yeah, i think shes pretty much a fangirl of nadal

she did say this:

Quote:
You can be pretty safe in predicting Nadal will claim two Slams a year for the next five years, so that puts him on 19 Slams and I'd be confident in saying he should get to 20 at least. Having won already on all four surfaces, he will be the greatest tennis player of all time.'
and when soderling was beating nadal in the fourth set of RG she said something like 'Soderling has no right to be in the position he's in at the moment'.

This is on par with the sort of stuff you'd expect from Start da Game or Tospindoctor.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

the olympic gold at wimby is the only thing that should interest him. and the Davis Cup, where he has a good chance with Wawa. That would kind of wrap it up and he could chill and become the family man that he naturally is

yes, maybe Navratilova thinks about Nadal the way she saw Graf beat her : well, Graf was not a beautiful player like her but in the end she beat her by the numbers

maybe that's the fate of tennis : beautiful classical tennis has to be beaten by physical strength

anyway, I will always defend Laver, Navratilova, McEnroe and Fed comparing to Nadals, Grafs and Seleses

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Fed is not playing bad and he is collecting points. It seems that the chase for 1st spot is giving him additional motivation. After all, he needs to break one more record I wouldn't predict, but wouldn't be entirely surprised if he succeeded, he would need a bit of luck, though.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Guys...........Federer's goals are neither the olympic gold medal nor the Davis Cup.

Sure he'll give them both efforts for the heck of it. While he has the opportunity, why not? Not to mention you get points for the ATP from participating.

He won't be demoralized if he gets neither. Those are secondary priorities.

His primary priority is to get 20 slams (or more) and retire, and cross his fingers that Nadal won't reach the record. Federer is not that stupid, he doesn't underestimate Nadal at all. When he cried at the 2009 AO, he felt Nadal was up to his neck, he felt the pressure and competition.

Another primary priority would be the break Sampras's year endings at #1, but at this stage of his career, I think that's a near impossibility because Djokovic is at his prime time. He's at the finest hour of his career. Nadal is already finding new ways to become a pain in the arse for the rest of the competition. His transition at the USO 2010 made that imperative with that unreturnable pain the arse serve designed for the fiercest of competition and hard-courts.

It will interesting to see if Djokovic can do to Federer and Nadal what Lendl did to McEnroe and Connors 25 years ago; dominate with physical strength and condition and commitment and take over the number 1 spot for a long time.
