yeah pretty big contrast. I guess Mirka was a great influence on him (his styling, clothing, hair everything)

the ponytail didn't help either. one of the most elegant Wimbledon champions ever.

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

I think 2 of those 3 maybe, as long as he skips Canada, but he'd probably be happy with either the Olympics or the US Open.
Olympics is no guarantee, even fresh off a Wimbledon win. He'll be favored on the Wimbledon grass, but best of 3 and someone like a hot Berdych could take him out. He's won 4 titles in Cincinnati and 5 at the US Open, so he certainly has a good chance, but competition on hard courts is always the toughest.

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

Too bad for that Halle loss. Anyway, 75#, 7th Wimbledon... Feels good I'll say this now, he will win at least 4 more titles this year.

It's fun looking back at the earlier posts in this thread.
Looks like #1 was easier

thats andys biggest problem. he hit some aggressive shots with the forehand but at the same time made some silly errors. consistency on that wing has never been an asset of his.

if murray had a better forehand, he'd be one hell of a player.

Could be 9 or 10 by the time the year is done.

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

Clay Death this has brought the most phenomenal success and has also bridged the gap between some ardent followers of rival players. Commendable.

Thanks General Death!

I feel so happy right now!

I hope #76 can happen at Olympics, but I don't want to get too greedy!

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!


17 Grand Slam titles
7 Wimbledon titles
302 weeks at #1

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

If he won the Olympics, I would allow him to retire this year without too much sadness.

edit: no i wouldn't

10 would be amazing but I think he missed that when he lost the Halle final...

I dont think he can win 3 indoor titles this year because Basel-Paris-TMC will be played without any weeks in between.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
