Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

Of course it will be broken.

With the ever increasing homogenization of surfaces.

We have seen what just over 100 years of tennis.

We have thousands apon thousands left.

Of course itl be broken unless they majorly chance the way pro tennis is done.

Soderling will probably be remembered more for stopping Nadal at RG, and for stopping Feds semi streak, then he ever will for his 2 slam finals.

How delightfully sad

Its pretty unlikely to even play 23 slams in a row, let alone making the SF for every one...

Is this serious question? Nobody will ever come close to Roger´s SF record, the way tennis is played now, with very physically demanding style, there is no way anyone can go 23 slams undefeated until SF.. just it is not possible i think

11 and counting..only 12 to go until he matches it..I think Murray and Nadal are out of reach of it now definately.

Djokovic had to save 5 MPs in 2012 FO, also struggled hugely against Wawrinka in R16. He can only have so much luck.

Maybe he draws nadal in his quarter in RG or Tsonga at Wimbledon could do the trick as well.

Don't think Fed would care if he loses this, as long as he keeps his QF streak record

For me the most awesome stat in terms of slams consistency will always be 18 of 19 slams finals (streaks of 10 and 8).

Very good post. I study history and what I've noticed is that people tend to be 'selfish' about their own time/lifetime/era. They tend to forget what happened in the past and that alot will happen in the future.
The earth will probably exist for another couple of billion years. Alot can happen in that time. Though society will change hugely in that time, our species will (probably) even change.

It's still unlikely. 12 more GS SF's is still 3 more years. He is not going to escape everytime from MP's or sets & breaks down.

You under estimate the egg.

Under estimate the egg at your peril.

None of the previous record holders had access to the mighty egg.
