How much would you bet on Federer not ever again winning a slam?

Specify, discuss, and let all the replies here for eternity

I would not bet a dime on it...

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

The title is not clear enough? What odds do you need? I am not a betting house, just a MTF member

You have to make up some odds or the topic really will have no point.

Choose the odds at will and bet, stop whining

Re: How much would you bet on Federer not ever again winning a slam?

I think he has good chance of winning more than one slam in the next couple of years.

What he can't do is dominate a season anymore.

Re: How much would you bet on Federer not ever again winning a slam?

He doesn't win next year, chances are good he never will again... So he has 4 shots

Anything you want. He is not winning another slam. Nadal will be there to stop him

Federer isn't winning RG

so that's 3 shots. While we're at it, he isn't winning AO, Wimbledon and US Open either. I would bet an awful lot on it

Re: How much would you bet on Federer not ever again winning a slam?

I'd make the odds of Federer never winning another GS at 5/1. I would'nt bet against him unless the odds were better though, i'd be looking for better value.

I would bet my parents' life. Pretty cheap bet if you ask me.

Roger isn't Sampras. He can actually compete with the best players in the world still. Heck, if he gets an 02 USO type draw, he'd probably run through a slam without dropping a set. Pete needed 5 sets and all he could handle to beat Rusdeski. LMAO.
