So it's approx 6 weeks depending on if he makes it to the semis or finals. THATS ALOT OF TIME especially when your on such a huge roll and nearing a grand slam nearing mid season.


Its comparable to the amount of break fed had at the end of the season after winning world tour finals till the australian open but that was about 50 days a bit longer sure but in that time fed played an abu dhabi exho, played DOHA open, hurt his back,played hurt,withdrew from doha, rested his back, flew to australia, and started the australian open.
And that was at the end of the season break. Long ass time like I keep saying.

Re: Roger Federer : The Swiss Warrior King's Quest For 100 Titles

the spanish have surpassed the brits in taking the worst of america and somehow managing to make it much worse.

blue clay and model ball girls as marketing strategies for their biggest tennis tournament are perfect examples of this.

Re: Roger Federer : The Swiss Warrior King's Quest For 100 Titles

To be fair, you will probably be able to make out the ball a lot easier on blue courts. Although the epicness of the red battleground would be lost. Tough decision.

Re: Roger Federer : The Swiss Warrior King's Quest For 100 Titles

Agreed, the blue clay was definitely a diversion from the topic on hand.

Title #74 just got more difficult with the early loss of John Isner.
Isner is one of the few players who can give both Djokovic and Nadal trouble with his big serve and he can deal with the high topspin of Nadal. But Mr. Federer can't depend on Isner to do the work this time, and that will make it more difficult for Federer should he reach the semifinals as expected. Then he would likely have to defeat both Djokovic and Nadal, should they both make it that far, and it would be a difficult task in the conditions here.

Nadal is in the driver's seat now in Miami, if he doesn't waste effort on doubles.
I think Federer would have to beat Djokovic easily to have a chance of beating Nadal the next day, and it's difficult to see that happening. In any case, title #73 was unexpected at the start of IW, so Federer is already ahead of title projections for the year. If title #74 doesn't come at Miami, it might come in Madrid, or in Halle. Nadal would have to exit early at Roland Garros like in 2009 for Federer to have a good chance there.

Respectfully,
masterclass

Re: Roger Federer : The Swiss Warrior King's Quest For 100 Titles

it is yes and no general masterclass:

#74 is near and far but with conditions. only way nadal has a chance to get his hands on fed is if he lands in the final. he is still playing shit tennis. he can thank his doubles activity and his golf for that. if your singles game is shit---and it is--- and you still wont bother focusing on singles and working hard to improve then you are not here to win a title.

you are here to see if you can get lucky. it is going to be a difficult assignment to deal with murray in the semis. and i dont believe he can beat nole on hard courts.


i believe fed will be in the final.
