Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.
this will become the mother of all sports quests in modern sports. it will be known going forward simply as "The Quest".
can he snatch a total of 100 titles before he hangs up his racquets? is that a viable goal for him to have?
and also what about 20 slams now that 17 are in the bag?
i know he wants slams but slams dont come easy after 30. he will be one of the exceptions obviously if it happens. where do you see his best chance at another slam? could it be on the u.s. open surface?
somebody won a french open at 31 for instance? what was his name? that is your question of the day. here is a hint: he was 6 foot 5 and he was a left hander.
muscles (rosewall) was making the finals of slams at some ridiculous old age. so if you have the talent and you can keep up on the fitness front you can certainly show up in the finals of slams.

Reason: better title
Re: The King of 100 Titles : The Great Swiss Assasin
so 30 years old tennis player needs to win almost a half of titles more that he won in last 12 years of carrier in time when surface becoming slower and slower and tennis more and more physically harder . pretty obvious this will happen
We should be appreciative of Federer though, because we will never see anything like him again. The fact he can still compete for slams ever after the erosion of his physical skills is really a greater testament to the natural talent he has than the period of time when he was dominating the tour.
