Will Federer end his career with a losing H2H against Djokovic, Nadal AND Murray?

Well he seems like he wants to stick around for a few more years.

Nadal finishing their H2H positively is pretty much a given.

Murray is now 2 wins ahead at 11-9 and Federer has only ever led their H2H once which was after the first match they played.

But the most interesting one is against Djokovic. Federer leads 16-13 but you would surely have to think if Federer stays around a few more years that Djokovic will be able to turn this around.

In response to the question, I'm going to say yes.

Probably Yes,depends if Federer will play long enough.

Supporting: Every single tennis player,with a slight edge for Novak Djokovic

I'd say it's quite likely.

Re: Will Federer end his career with a losing H2H against Djokovic, Nadal AND Murray?

It depends on Nole, because H2H with Rafa is 1000% sure and with Murray i would say it is something like 90%+ also that Murray will have poistive H2H with Roger- he is up 2 matches and Roger will only decline in next 2 years.

Nole i think can turn it- it depends on Roger how long and how good he will be - how many opportunities for Nole to beat him, but basically it isn´t looking good for Roger, most of the tour isn´t grass under the roof or fast HC like Cinci, so i can see Nole easily win say next 5-6 from 7-8 that would mean advantage Nole

If we just look in 2013 possible matches, Nole will be favorit on slow HC, clay and Roger would be only slight favorit on grass and fast HC- even indoors at the end of the season i can see it tight and next year 2014 possibly 2015 the advantage for Nole will be even higher with declining older Roger

Re: Will Federer end his career with a losing H2H against Djokovic, Nadal AND Murray?

Probably, yeah. But I don't mind.

Those 3 can all have positive head to heads but if they all get stuck on much lesser slams than Fed I don't see the point in bringing out H2H's.

Probably.

It's just natural: the more he declines, the more it'll be easier to beat him. He'll be 32 in August...

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

I think so..doubt Roger is afraid of what H2H when it's all said and done says unlike some other players...only cares about trophies

Even if this happens, this won't make Fed's achivements any less impressive. Pretty normal to see him lose quite often to these guys when he is very far from his prime.

Probably will happen, unless he retires this year.

The only way he can prevent it happening is if he keeps losing early in tournaments before Nole has a chance to beat him.

Yeah but only because he is considerably older. If they were all the same age, I'd expect Fed to have a positive head to head against both Murray and Djokovic. Not Nadal though.
