I would sooooo be pissed off to be sooooo unlucky if I was Fed....

Not a bad year, but ordinary by his standards. In this case I hope someone else will finish No 1.

yea, but if he loses there I wouldn't be suprised. He doesn't own Wimbly and he could easily lose to a Hot Heman, Awesome Ancic, or Ridiculous Roddick.

If he does not win a Slam this year, it is a wasted year for him.

Re: If Federer just loses 4 matches this year...

It would be an incredible achievement if he won all 9 Masters Series plus the Masters Cup in one season, I'd suggest it would make up for not winning a Slam. But anyways, it's never gonna happen he's got about as much chance as Elvis Presley

Re: If Federer just loses 4 matches this year...

Federer is not a sure bet for Wimbledon. Yes, he is the favorite, but there are plenty of players that can beat him there.

If I joined the pro tour and won every match except at the majors, I'd be just fine with that.

Re: If Federer just loses 4 matches this year...

This thread is a joke. What is he loses 5, 6, 7?

Come on. His year is based on slams as he's set himself apart of everyone.

His loss count won't do that.

And if they do all come in slams, yes. Like I said, his year is based on the slams. Much like Tiger Woods is based on majors.

Re: If Federer just loses 4 matches this year...

If he has like a 7*-4 record, along with several Masters shields, "lesser" titles, and the Masters Cup, then it's not bad at all.
