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

If it was his only goal in life and he switched to playing 250's with weaker fields there's a chance he could do it in 5 years. So there's no way he's doing it.

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

Fed is turning 31 this August...in other words he will now NOT be bound by any ATP rules regulation regarding Compulsory Tournaments to be played

So i think he will use that to his advantage to skip MS and smaller tourny for GS's

so realistically speaking 80-82

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

31 is nothing for Fed.

i just revised my estimate of how long he will play:

he plays and competes until he is 40.

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

he can reach number 100, why not? just need to play these american events aka challengers like Sah Jose, Memphis, Atlanta, La, Washington,Win Salem, Newport, etc,... he could easily achieve it in 3-4 years

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

if he snags another 5-6 titles this year, that makes 77 already.

now we are talking just 23 for the next 6 years. do the math.

and he is likely to play until he is 40.

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

if he plays to 35 then its....... possible

for sure he can win a handfull of 250s every year
maybe a 500 a year
couple of WTF left in him
(hopefully) a slam
and maybe a couple of masters

thats maybe 20 titles- so 90 is a stretch- well either way its possible but i doubt it

but to be able to do it says alot about his amazing consistency

probably says a hell lot more about how legendary connors, lendl, mac, rosewall and laver were

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

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

He should feast on upcoming youngsters in the 250 category, maybe even add some challengers later on. Just to make sure they all lose hope before they reach the top, and therefore become a threat to RF's GOAT status.

He should do this until he's about 40-45.

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

is this the best jinx attempt ever or what?

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

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

I doubt this will happen and I'd rather see him winning another GS than 20 more 250-500 tournaments

Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer

winning atp 250 means 4 matches in 7 days and at least big effort in possible final with Troicki, Cilic or Verdasco. He could win 20 of these in a one single year, but why doing this cuase he can easily be no.3 with 2 or 3 titles

he is more focused and more driven now that the time is of the essence. i think we are seeing the results.
This is one of the best uses of the English language I have ever seen.

you folks are truly negative. this is an honest thread.

i suggest you come up with an honest chat.

not everybody is a hapless, legless, toothless, spineless, gutless, and eyeless ejaculite from the lost world of Ejacustan.

some of us actually know our tennis.
