If he decides to end his career like Connors, so, he will reachat least Lendl`s 94 titles. But to achieve that milestone, he need to vulture a lot of MM events, and I don´t think he will do that.

I was koking, but I will really like if he chose two or threee ATP`s to vulture in the next 3 or 4 years. Like Memphis, Washington, Stockholm, Newport, etc.

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

I do think it will be interesting to see if RF plays in places he hasn't played in a long time or hasn't played at all in the coming few years, like Washinton, etc. He might keep the same Masters/Slams based schedule but as we have seen this year, he needs matches to get into a good rhythm at this point in his career so playing some more small tournaments could be beneficial.

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

It would be nice if Roger ended 2013 with 80 titles. Imo he can do that. Still it will be very difficult to reach the 100 title mark.

Considering he will play until 2016, he would have to win 20 titles in 3 seasons. 7 titles in 2 seasons plus 6 in the other. That's impossible. Even in 2012 with the great year he had he won 6 titles. How will we replicate that in the last 3 years of his career?! Impossible.

A more realistic and yet difficult mark would be 90 titles.

This.

And also 90 titles are very difficult to reach unless he'll start "vulturing".

This is not 2008 where federer was only 27.
federer is now 32, and his body mileage is maxed out.

Sometimes delusional fan can be almost as bad as hateful haters.

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

I think the only major milestone that is still reachable is 1000 wins. Only 96 remaining, if he doesn't retire early he should be ale to do it. But 100 titles or 20 slams, no way. Not that the number of titles means much anyway, with the current ATP rules winning tons of MM events don't give you ranking points so...

The King is dead.
Nolisters rule in Grand Slams.
Mugers have crossed the Wall.
Winter is coming...

He needs to start vulturing some venues. He may ask to a WC for Goatport this year



Hopefully he plays until 2016, I`m not still convinced about that.

This pretty much, unless he starts vulturing Mickey Mouse titles he won't get anywhere near that number. Fed always kept his schedule tight so I don't see him playing (and winning) too many 250s in the future. 3 Slams also seems far off but with Fed you never know, he certainly will have his chances at Wimby as long as he stays fit.

That's not necessarily true. Just think about Ferrer's lats season, 7 titles most on tour. Of course Roger won't vulture so he won't get there but it would be possible if he vultured.

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

over...

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan

This seems like a distant dream now.

Fed won't make 20 slams now, but he can vulture his way to 100 ATP titles. By the end of next year on current trajectory he'll be at the ATP250 level anyway. He could play these for years to come and rack the titles up.
