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

He'll finish at 80 in my opinion. That's still 9 more which is a lot, requires him to do as well as last year for two and a half more years.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

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

Fed can coast to 80 titles If he keeps it up indoors and grabs some outdoor titles when Djokovic/Nadal fail to reach late stages of the tournaments.
I definitely can't see him breaking 90 titles.

80-85. At best. Even that is a stretch.

Then you are onto something. A player with Feds serve and volley skills could easily be competitive in doubles up to 40 and with his reputation he could basically pick partner.

But personally don't think Federer will go for doubles. Probably will retire, settle down with the family. All the travel won't work when the twins start school and he probably don't want to sacrifice family just to grind doubles titles. Money is not a factor for him.

its ok if you dont think he will hit 100 titles. your input is still important. that is what makes and also advances this discussion.

oh, right, it's perfectly logical to assume you were talking 100 total titles, not just singles titles.

he must be close, we're counting exhibitions and juniors titles as well, right?

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

I say 80 .85 will be a stretch really .The sport is becoming more and more tougher with the slow surfaces

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

Reading this thread Fed will change the schedule for next year .

He'll skip this year's WTF to carry momentum in 2013 . 2013 he'll start in Chennai, then he'll play Sydney, then he'll take two weeks off for peaking for Zagreb , after Zagreb he'll make short trip to San Jose, then he'll try his luck in Memphis and peak for Delray Beach, then he'll take 3 weeks off to make some changes in game for clay courts of Houston, next is Bucharest, if Nole doesn't play he'll try to become a king of Belgrade to outmentals Nole, after two weeks of peaking the biggest goal of his clay court season will arrive in Nice, again two weeks off and one silly attempt of winning the Halle, then again after short recovery peak of his grass court season in Newport and then when he is already in US he'll try himself in Atlanta, Los Angeles and Winston Salem, again some rest for peaking for the biggest goal of season trying to take Bangkok from Garcia Lopez and for the end of season to satisfy his eastern european fans he'll give all to win Moscow . And final reward will be closing the gap to 100 titles

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

If he ends up at 80, it could be something like this:

72nd at a slam
73rd, 74th, 75th at Masters - maybe Cincy, one of IW/Miami some time in the next two years, an indoors one like Paris or Shanghai
76th, 77th at Basel, and Basel or another random 500
78th, 79th, 80th at Halle, Doha and some other 250

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

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

Depends how long he'll play for and whether Nadull and Djokovic can sustain their level at all the major tournaments (GS + 1000s).

Not a bad prediction. IW or Miami would be tough unless they speed up playing conditions there or something happens to Djokovic/Nadal.

In fact, that may be Mr. Federer's one chance to reach 100 single's titles and a few more slams. He would have to hope that he plays on without too much further decline, and that Nadal, Djokovic and possibly Murray don't make it for one reason or another. Their style of play is aging (in terms of mileage/injury) them faster than Mr. Federer. IF those guys are out of the way I could see him winning majors and more titles, even #1 when he is 34, 35, given the current crop of younger men. Of course, if one or two of the younger men steps it up, then it would be extremely difficult.

Respectfully,
masterclass
