Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Possibly number 2 for a while. But I'd literally bow down and pray to an effigy of the man if he got back to number 1. Won't do anything else though, I'm not crazy.

I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

I still think no. It's not in his control, it depends also on Nole and Rafa both having dips in form. The fact of the matter is that he's got a lot to defend for the entire hardcourt season, given that he made at least the semis at every tournament he played, and now he has a very narrow window in which to gain points. And the law of Federer over the last year or so has been that being in bad form, or good form, is no guarantee that he can carry it into the big tournaments. So he can have great tournaments like the FO now without having done much in the preceding claycourt season, or he can go out in three against Nole like in the AO despite being on this great run.

But it doesn't matter really, 285 weeks on top is not bad at all

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

everyday it looks more unlikely

if murray wins wimby, federer might end the year as number 4 considering all he has to defend in the indoor season

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

not this year. I suppose he can get to #2 of Rafa DOESN'T win Wimby and Fed wins USO. #1 is out of the question this year.

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

He just missed his golden chance of recent times, had he won Wimbledon he would have been number one... But he does not deserve at this point IMO.

A service notice for Pete..

Year Tournament Round Surface Winner Score
2001 Wimbledon 16 Grass (O) R.FEDERER 7-6(7) 5-7 6-4 6-7(2) 7-5


Does he really believes this is the same Federer of then?

Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

He who wins majors becomes number one. It goes hand in hand. Federer is struggling to win majors so I can't see him getting to number one.

Exactly that is how this could be seen. (at least on the mens ranking system )

It's possible to happen...

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by May 2018

Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 1 by Dec 2018
