Re: The King of 100 Titles : The Great Swiss Assassin

After turning 31 Federer is not obliged to play IW and Miami anymore, correct?

Re: The King of 100 Titles : The Great Swiss Assassin

i dont know actually but i would like to find out also.

i dont see Fed skipping indian wells and miami masters. combined appearance fee approaches around $3 mill. all under the table of course.

and he needs to keep his game relatively sharp.

Yeah, I think he can snatch five titles... Mostly indoors.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!


17 Grand Slam titles
7 Wimbledon titles
302 weeks at #1

he has 1 already.

he might snatch queens so that makes 2.

so all he has left to do now is snatch 3 more: i am thinking paris indoors, WTF, and possible one other title somewhere.

depending on the draw and a few upsets, he may even snatch miami masters.

and dont forget if he can continues to progress, he may even snatch dubai.

100% sure he's not even making the first round over there.

Not so sure. I've heard a certain Spanish friend of his who does pretty well on grass himself will come over there as well.

If he plays one of those, it's definitely Halle.

Re: The King of 100 Titles : The Great Swiss Assassin

than the halle title is in the bag. that makes 2 already. only 3 to go and i think he gets those 3 somewhere.

5-6 titles is not too shabby for a 31 year old.

If he goes to the Asian swing, he'll probably get one there.
