Well, I will not be amazed if he wins 3 or 4 more slams. I agree that Wimbledon is his best chance, but he can definitely win US Open as well. Remember those semis against Novak in 2010 and 2011? He should have won at least the 2011 semi and faced Rafa in the final. Not that he for certain would have beaten Rafa, but I think he would have had a good chance. Last year was a letdown, but that walkover against Fish was not the best before meeting a brilliant Berdych in the quarters.

Even in Paris Roger was extremely close in 2011. For some reason he played an awful RG last year, despite having a cakewalk draw to the quarters. It was perhaps his worst tournament next to Miami.

Of course it will always be a tough ask to beat Murray/Djokovic back-to-back, but he overcame the challenge in Wimbledon last year. And it is likely that Murray or Djokovic will have a bad GS now and then.

Re: How many more slams will Federer win?

Roger 3.0 is playing some amazing tennis. He definitely has a chance at all the remaining slams this year. But I'd like to see him win the USO most of all.

I think Wimbledon is obviously his best shot but I would argue that he has a pretty decent shot at RG depending on the draw. I agree USO will be tough. And FWIW, I think his recovery after matches isn't nearly as good as it used to be but his stamina is pretty good. He can go 5 sets...just not in successive matches.

so 4 slams at least!

never count federer out. he might just have a good week and blow everyone away or just luck with draws FOR ONCE.
I love federer but it seems like 3-4 more slams would be the absolute maximum, not the minimum at this point. Hopefully you are right, and I'm wrong but he isn't really a favorite anywhere except wimbledon and that will be tightly contested as well.

Re: How many more slams will Federer win?

One of Roland Garros (if Nadal isn't fully fit) or Wimbledon but likewise I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't win either.

He will fall. No more slams for Olderer. Book it.

I would take Federer over Murray on Clay. Federer can beat Djokovic on clay as well (one of only a handful of players who can do it). Rafa is the real wild-card.

And a favorable draw for Fed would mean not drawing Nadal in his quarter. Not one of the top 4 seeds wants to see Rafa in their quarter.

in 2013 I give him 20% at best......I would be less shocked in Novak lost to Almagro than Federer on clay at this point.......and Rafa will end up in Ferrer's quarter

Re: How many more slams will Federer win?

Possibly 1 more at Wimbledon, but cannot image elsewhere.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
