I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

old legs doesn't have the volleys for doubles anymore, the serve yes

he's excellent compared to the current top 10, but that isn't hard

anyway, i believe he has already said that he isn't interested in doubles, and that, while he supports the idea of it, he isn't interested in the seniors tour either

don't have a link, google it

Noserer should bring Coketina Hingis out of retirement and play mixed, they'd sweep CYGS for sure. Noserer will finally add a second RG to his collection as well - his first one wouldn't seem like such a fluke anymore

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

I'll need to buy a newer model hover or even hire a cleaning company to sweep all the crap that's been written over the last few pages of this visionary thread. I can't wait to bump it again in a few months .

A fluke like Rafa's AO and USO? Because Federer has multiple finals at the FO to back up his win. What about Rafa at the USO? Is he a fixture in the finals there? Are you trying to insult Federer but inadvertently ending up shitting over Nadal in the process?

yes, what a fluke, after being in the final for 4 years..
How many times has Nadull reached USO final again? Its good that he fluked a title there, after all he "doesnt like" the hard courts because they are oh so unfair...

I dont need any signature

99.99%. Only way he won't is because of a career ending injury (0.01%).

FFS, stop feeding freaking TopspinNadullasskisser, people. He's a troll. Leave him to write his BS but do not respond, so we don't ruin the thread. Go and own him in the Dull thread. Thanks.

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

Yes, he could feasibly do both. Don't know if he will, but he can for sure. Federer can be a top 10 player when he's 40 easily bar any unforeseen injuries, he will remain a title-winning thread for as long as he wants/is motivated.

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

I still think 100 is too far .I will wait for him to do it before I believe it

I hope he adds 3 more titles this year to get to 79

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

There won't be many titles available for Roger to win because murray is now invincible. This means Roger only has a chance in tournaments where murray doesn't play which are few.

2. Ivan Lendl - 94
3. John McEnroe - 77
4. Roger Federer - 76*


* Still active

In the video elsewhere in this thread where Roger Federer mentions thoughts of winning 100 titles, he has also stated that he likes longevity and accomplishments associated with it, pointing to Jimmy Connors 20 years in the game as an example. His achievement this year of winning Wimbledon and returning to #1 in the world at age 30-31 with his younger competition in their prime is remarkable. We have discussed elsewhere in this thread that Federer has many of the qualities that support longevity in tennis.

If he keeps somewhere near his current level of play (top 4), then he definitely can put himself in a position to win more majors as well as more titles. That's all that can reasonably be expected. Whether he can or will win more majors will be dependent on how well and for how long he can keep somewhere near this level, how well his main competition continues to perform, and some amount of luck. Given his current level and competition, it would surprise me more if he never wins another major than if he were to win 1-3 more, but who knows?

Starting Jan 1, 2013, he is free to play in whichever tournaments he wishes as he will have fulfilled all 3 requirements to be exempt from the ATP tour Masters 1000 commitment. He can skip tourneys that don't favor him and opt to play in others that do, even if they may be "lesser" tournaments. He has a family and health considerations, but the family seems to enjoy the traveling and tennis as much as he does. He might not play 15 more years , but as long as he stays relatively healthy and his family needs are no obstacle, another 5-10 years on the tour wouldn't shock me.

In the end, we can speculate one way or another, try to estimate how many titles/year he can win, etc., but who knows what will happen? In 2012, I think most people have been surprised that he has won 6 titles including 3 masters 1000s and Wimbledon so far, with the indoor season still to go. At the end of 2012, let's see where he is and how we did with our predictions very early in this thread.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

Thanks for the stats, Masterclass.

By the way, Connors holds the record for most weeks in top-5 in a row since the creation of the ATP rankings : 659 weeks, that is 12 years and 7 months from the 24th of september 1973 to the 12th of may 1986, that is he went out of the top-5 only at 33 years and 8 months old ( http://www.tennis28.com/rankings/con..._top5etal.html )

Fed will reach 10 years in a row on the 17th of february 2013.

33 years and 8 months years old for Fed would be in april 2015.

659 weeks would be reached on the 5th of october 2015.

I think every Fedfan would be extremely happy if Fed stayed in the top-5 for that long, which would mean he would still be in the top-competition

If Connors did it, one can hope Fed can do it as well, although it's a huge goal.

More reasonably, Lendl's 588 weeks consecutive would be reached on the 26th of may 2014.

I have to say that's the best I wish for him, more than any other goal like winning slams or else that number of titles record which means hardly anything for me.

useless old guy
