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

Fed should have his best chances at WB and USO.

Actually till he won at Wimbledon this year it didn't look like he could win there again.

Since he cut down errors and has the BH working he should have chances everywhere.

The important thing is being ready for the chances when they show up, it's paid off before and may again.

Fed might add another 2 or 4 to his totals, Nadal has trouble playing top level tennis the whole year and so does Djokovic.
Opportunities will be there.

Federer

Del Potro

Gulbis

Janowicz

Never in doubt that Nadulltards like Insectus comes into a Fedthread and hijack it, just like they ruined my last thread. Unbelievable that this is even allowed.

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

In my prediction I said 2. I think I'll be a bit more optimistic and go for 3.

My preference (in order) - USO, Olympics, WTF, Cincy, Basel, Paris, others

What I think Roger's best chances are - Basel, Olympics/Cincy, WTF, USO, Paris, others.

So I don't see USO as extremely likely purely because of Stupid Saturday and a possible clash against RN. If the draw opens up for him, maybe then yes. Still, highly unlikely. It's a tough slam to win physically.

Basel we all know and he's been extremely successful at Cincy. WTF is also a good chance despite the level of competition.

I think we can afford to be a little more optimistic than this General. He wants to win the USO more than anything after what happened the last 3 years there. I doubt Nadal will be a big factor there after his injury. And he could end up in Djokers draw anyway. I think with winning Wimby a lot of pressure came off Roger's shoulders and he will be relaxed and confident at the USO. He wants to set his own slam record by winning 6 there. Djokovic will be his main opposition there and I'd like to see a Djokerer final. Murray will also be a factor. Roger seems to have Delpo under control. I think it's fair to call him the favorite here General after what he did to Djoke at Wimby. As for the other events I think he can easily win 4 in total. He will have chances at all of them. It will just be a question of his body holding up. I think he wins the OG, Cincy, USO, Basel, and WTF. Boom.

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

I agree we can be a bit more optimistic but you have to remember our old man is (will be) 31 years old and he has played a lot of tennis which might catch up with him. He will also have to fly to Holland for a Davis Cup tie after the USO, so that can't be that helpful. I prefer to keep it real and somewhat neutral but I see where you're coming from. It's been quite unpredictable this tennis season.

BTW, if Roger were to win the USO, he will become the record holder of titles for 2 out of big 5 events in tennis - WTF and USO and be tied for 1st in the AO and Wimbledon. Incredible.

Yes, that is incredible. Well I like your sense of realism and I forgot about the DC tie. But at least it's on his way to Europe and not out of the way. If we look at how this season unfolded it hasn't been inconsitent from Roger's standpoint. In fact he has been a model of consistency. The US hard court and indoor seasons are his favorite part of the season and given the wave of confidence he is riding I don't see him slowing down. When you are confident tiredness doesn't mean much. It's only when you are low on confidence that you feel the aches and pains. I think he wins a minimum of 4 events towards the end of the year General.

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

I want only 2 more - olympics gold and uso. Hell even the uso alone will be enough for me.

But what I want does not matter. So I predict he will win all 8 remaining. Mark my words.

4 titles FED wants : Olympics, USO, Basel, Year-End Tournment

But actually, USO is enough!

Anyway, I hope that Federer will surpass McEnroe's 77 ATP Singles titles and 875 wins this year!

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

Perhaps nothing more and I wouldn't care less as the guy has already massively extended the best of my wishes/expectations. He's got nothing left to prove.
