Contest: Predict Federer's #78th title & beaten Finalist to pass McEnroe

Predict the tournament and beaten FINALIST where Roger Federer will win his 78th ATP Singles tour title and pass John McEnroe to take over 3rd place in the Open Era behind Jimmy Connors (109) and Ivan Lendl (94).

Wimbledon 2012 was Mr. Federer's 75th career title and 5th in 2012.

Federer's current schedule (keep in mind, he is allowed to skip 2 masters without penalty):

1. 07/27/2012 - 08/05/2012 - Olympic Games 2012 at Wimbledon (Gold medal).

2. 08/06/2012 - 08/12/2012 - Rogers Cup (Toronto) Masters 1000

3. 08/13/2012 - 08/19/2012 - Western & Southern Open (Cincinnati) Masters 1000

4. 08/27/2012 - 09/09/2012 - US Open

5. 10/08/2012 - 10/14/2012 - Shanghai Rolex Masters 1000

6. 10/22/2012 - 10/28/2012 - Swiss Indoors (Basel) ATP 500

7. 10/29/2012 - 11/04/2012 - BNP Paribas Masters 1000 (Paris-Bercy)

8. 11/05/2012 - 11/12/2012 - Barclays ATP World Tour Finals

The contest will close for guesses before Federer's first Olympic match.
First correct guess wins a vcash credit prize and honorary prognosticator certificate of achievement.

P.S. If he doesn't win his 78th in 2012... I'll edit this post. and we'll start over

-------------------------------------------

2013 or other totally invalid predictions are not shown in the summary. If #78 doesn't come in 2012, we start over.
If two tourneys mentioned, I selected the later one.
"(No finalist)" picks cannot win the contest - but tourney opinion is noted.
You may edit your predictions anytime up to the first match of the Olympics, but chronological rule will apply (edit date will be used for ordering).

Thanks for playing!

Respectfully,
masterclass

Basel sounds likely. No idea on the finalist though. If I had to choose one, maybe Wawrinka?

Nadal "Sampras, Ivanisevic match. or one between those kind of players, is not enjoyable. It's not really tennis. it is a few swings of the racquet. For me in the past it was just serve. serve". arrogance.

clay excluded. successive win 0.  If grass and a hard are fast. Like Sampras era. Nadal is able to win only with clay. power of defense and muscles. boring ugly. All the surface is slow now.

fake time-out. cheat. gamesmanship. too noisy annoying always. excuse. boycotts threatened. always dissatisfaction cry complaints. dissatisfaction to schedule. selfish two-year ranking. bump to player. ugly protest. always exaggerated appeal of self condition. etc. overrated by fanatic arrogant blind fan
