Loving the new title Clay Death. I feel 20 is out of reach personally, 19 is my maximum estimation with 1 USO and 1 Wimbledon. Though who knows for sure, I was becoming resigned to 16 at some points (Im ashamed).

20 maybe difficult. Really depends on his fitness and consistency if he can keep it up. Djokovic & Nadal are going to come back harder now hungry for more success.

Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

Since this thread started (I believe it was after he won Rotterdam), Fed won Dubai, M1000 IW, M1000 Madrid and Wimbadannn.

Where's the jinx?

He returned to world number one and defeated players like Nadal, Djokovic, Murray (x2) during those tournaments I mentioned.

Where's the jinx?

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

this thread has even the press talking about the possibility of 100 titles.

general viruzzz it is your reponsibility to keep the spineless hate riddled ejacuzees out of this place.

this is a place for honest and objective fed fans to sit down and discuss all tennis matters as they relate to Fed.

I believe turning point was Fed beating Nadal at IW this year. First time he beat Nadal outdoors on hard since 2005 Miami! It was huge for his self confidence and belief.

Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

A lot of people said that breaking Sampras's record and winning RG would be enough for them. I never thought like that. However, with this latest success and all the consequences like world #1 and record Wimbledon titles it brings makes me satisfied with Fed's career as it is. If he stops tomorrow, I won't mind.

However, that's probably because I know he'll aim for even more and I'll get to enjoy his free-flowing excellence and fighting spirit for many years to come, save for a freak injury.

There was an interview in which he was asked the same question by the journalist about 100 titles. It was eerie actually. Maybe the journalist is a MTF member

I'll try but this is still MTF and that's almost as difficult as putting a dress to a hungry bear.

Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

i am usually 20 steps ahead of the press general shanks. for instance, i am the one who said over 4 years ago that nole was the future #1.

you can always check with general viruzzz. he will gladly verify it.


by the way we have a new fed fan at the castle. you can meet him next time you are at the castle.
