Delpo has gotten closer and closer to beating Federer this year, so maybe he'll do it here. I wouldn't mind.

I think this is what's going to happen. Del Potro is a huge danger for Roger. If Roger makes it to the final.

Negative. We are talking about the GOAT here. If you don't like it go to the Muggay forum.

Actually I think Del Potro is a threat to Federer, as are most ball-bashers post-2007.

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

So the great Roger Federer was a bit off track in this quest at the end of 2012. After racking up 6 titles until Cincinnati in August with one of them being a slam (Wimbledon) Roger failed to win any title until the end of the year.

Roger lost in the quarters at the US Open and had no chance in Shanghai where Murray soundly beat him. Roger had his chances in Basel losing a match he could very well have won (0/5 on BPs won). Roger also had some chances to take the WTF final to a 3rd set but failed to serve it out.

So, what awaits us in 2013....
Roger as already published his schedule. Miami and Basel are not on his schedule but we all know there will probably be other tournaments Roger won't play to be able to have some rest during the year. He has already stated that he will play a reduced number of tournaments in the upcoming years and that he'll try and play in the Olympics in Rio in 2016.
So what are your expectations for 2013? Will Roger keep adding enough titles and slams to keep the quest alive?

Roger currently has 76 titles of which 17 are slams. So he needs 24 titles of which 3 slams to complete the quest.

If we assume Roger plays until 2016 he would have 4 more years to do it. This means an average of 6 titles per year. He would also need to win 1 slam in 3 of those 4 years.

Good video! Nice to see FedError humbled by the most humble on the tour, in his home tournament. Basel crowd ever disrespectful but whatever, no fed for them next year, so they'll have to adopt someone to support, because Stanford won't do much.

As for the question, the 20 slams is a possibility, but the 100 titles is imo not going to happen.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
