Couldn't have said it better than these three... Although Murray actually has a lot more chance to win a slam than Federer, and that's saying something.

The only tournaments Fed can still win are indoors or 250's.

Re: Multi slam year possible for federer?

If he does win Australian Open, he will statistically have the greatest chance to win 2 slams. If he did, I think the 2nd slam would be Wimbledon.

Just 2 days ago this site was burying Fed, now he's going to win 2-3 (or more) slams this year, plus Olympic Gold, oh yeah, and Davis Cup too

Goat cheese will win 18 GS in Challenger category, no risk to find Nole or Kinder Bueno on his way

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.
Though I agree with some of this, it is a non sequitur. The poll's premise isn't a debate about whether he will win the Australian Open or not, it's a given.
The poll states:
"If fed wins AO 2012 and becomes number 2 does he have a multi slam year?"

Under those conditions (if it means he is #2 seed at every slam), he would have a reasonable chance of multiple slam victories in 2012.

His only chance was the 2011 Australian Open, and that's if you completely ignore the hottest player on tour.
So you think Federer would stand no chance against Nadal in the USO 2010 and 2011 if he beat Djokovic in the semi? I would give Federer at least 50-50

Resistance is futile, sooner rather than later, no one will be able to resist the powerhouse that is peer pressure from MTF
