Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

IF (I repeat IF) Fed wins the AO that obviously means he becomes the man to beat at the moment. In that case he surely has a good chance of winning another.
I actually think Fed will win the AO. People who ride of Fed forget how close he has come to winning a slam on several occassions since AO 2010.

Federer: Future number one.

Fed vs Rafa

Wimbledon: 7-2
U.s open: 5-2
AO: 4-1
FO 1-9
WTF: 6-0
Weeks at number one: 302-140(about)

Really no contest

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

My God,

people strong opinions in MTF changed by day.

Right before Abu Dhabi: Roger will win golden CYGS, during and after Abu Dhabi: Roger will win zero match in 2012, after 1R Doha: Roger will win AO and possibly multislams.

True for some people but I've been picking Fed since he won the WTF.

Exactly. The only player who can be relied on to beat Federer most of the time on slams is Nadal. With Djokovic, it's 50/50 and mostly depends on which Federer comes out to play. If he manages to get the no. 2 ranking and gets lucky with the draw (Nadal and Djokovic both on the other side, Djokovic takes out Nadal for him), I don't see how it's so impossible for him to win another slam or two.

RG 2010: Rafa didn't lose early
WB 2010: Rafa didn't lose early
USO 2010: Rafa didn't lose early
AO 2011: lost in straights to Novak
RG 2011: Rafa didn't lose early
WB 2011: Rafa didn't lose eaarly
USO 2011: Rafa didn't lose early

His only chance was the 2011 Australian Open, and that's if you completely ignore the hottest player on tour.

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

Yeah, the last non clay slam between fed-nadal was back in 09 australia so it's almost been 3 years since the last non-clay slam.

Would love to see a fed-nadal semi down under but we all know nole-fed will always be paired up.

Rafa doesn't lose early bc he gets to play mugray in every slam semi. If he had to play nole as often as fed does, he would have lost in the semi's in a few of those slams including roland garros having to go through nole every time.

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

Lots of things would have to go right for Federer in order to win AO. Either Novak or Rafa would have to lose before playing him because he won't beat the both. Nadal can't be 100% healthy because no way Federer can beat him if Rafa is 100%. Also Federer would need ridiculous sieving to beat Novak.Playing Murray in the finals would help. Also avoiding players like Berdych, Tsonga and Del Potro would be important. It is not impossible but it is highly unlikely. At this stage of his career where he got little worse and the competition lot better it has become very difficult. The fact that he won bunch of matches in the fall means as much as the losses at exho last week. He won't be a favorite to win it so that might help him. When tyhe draw comes out we will be able to predict more but as of now, I wouldn't bet any money on him despite him winning is way more likely than Murray doing it. Safest bet is still the Novak - Rafa finals. Anything else would be somewhat surprising.

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

The draw is very predictable.

1. Fed-nole in the same half
2. Fed vs tsonga/berych qf; same for nole
3. Nadal plays ferrer in qf
4. Expect another top 4 semi's

they also have Cilic as best Croatian despite the fact that Marin won't even play. Bookies have been wrong last season a lot.
