Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

Why don't you guys leave Ash86 and Allez to go ahead in piece with their grand negative Fed scenarios for the USO - exactly the kind of arguments they were positing before Wimbledon



"When I'm asked, how is it to be around Federer, and what is he really like, I always reply, "I wish people could meet him when cameras or an audience aren't around, as he is one of the nicest people I have ever met when stringing on tour. " -- drakulie

Exactly. In best of 5, Federer last won in 2007 - it is a huge mountain for him. It's not like the surface at the US Open is bad for Nadal - his last 4 results - SF, SF, W, F. Fed's last 4 - W, F, SF, SF. Fed had match points last year but he also lost a 2 set lead - can't discount that. Best option for Fed is Murray in his half, and Nadal/Djoker destroy each other in the other semi. Fed can beat Nadal in best of 5 but let's not pretend many Fed fans would be confident that he would...

Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

A better question: How many more tournaments will Federer fall in this year?

Muger + Murray = Mugray

How is saying Fed is one of the top 4 favourites for the USO being negative ? I have tried to back everything I have said with facts. Have you ?

Their rivalry is very surface-dependent. Look at what happens indoor. I say Fed will roast Nadal with ease if they are to meet at the USO. Nadal won't have time to prepare his passing shots there, the surface is too quick.

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

double standards as usually from you. you're acting like you're the most objective here, but it's obvious you can't stand fed and just trolling.

examples?

Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

I think Federer wins 4. It would be interesting to see Federer play Nadal at USO but Nadal will likely lose before the SF. Djokovic's USO chances depend heavily upon whether he regains form in Toronto and Cincy. Novak's movement, forehand and serve have not been close to the levels he reached in 2011.

What? I realize I am fairly new here, but I never would have guessed he was actually posing as objective. A totally lost cause from what I have seen, but I suppose he might have better things behind him than the last couple of month's offerings.

I didn't know stupidity could be considered work. Then again, that is why you, Clay Fail, FailFK and the others go so deep into the ACC each year.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

Everyone. Please keep the thread on topic! This is not a Federer-Nadal debate thread, or a Federer fall thread, etc. There are other threads for those things. Predict how many titles he will win the rest of the year and if you want to add which ones, fine.
If you think he'll win 0, or 1, or x, state which ones and why you think so, and leave other posters be.

But don't start getting in a debate with other posters that have posted their # of win opinions that are different from your own, or I'll ask the mods to start deleting off topic posts.

In other words, have the courage and class to post your own prediction without denigrating others. I hope that is clear.

Thanks.

Respectfully,
masterclass
