Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

Yes, another Federer thread!

No, changed my mind, post your career predictions about any player you want..

Recently I have been heavily critisized for my "crazy" predictions of what I think federer will accomplish. Make your own predictions here, how many grand slams? Which grand slams? How many TMS titles? How many years as nr1? How many tournaments? Will he win a real grand slam?

I'll begin with my "crazy" prediction:

8 wimbledon
6 US open
5 Australian open
3 Roland Garros
31 TMS titles
7 Tennis master cup titles
91 titles
8 years as world nr 1
2 real grand slams (calendar or noncalendar)

You can all laught at my predictions if you want, but only if you post your own predictions aswell...

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career!

If Sampras and Agassi can win 60 and I consider Federer to be a much bigger talent than both, why not?

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

Don't jinx him!

By the way, your predictions are crazy, but I wish they'd become true if he had 10 years ahead of him to play the game and not be that challenged, which I think it will not happen.

I'm gonna go with more "real" predictions, yet fan-biased:
10 Slams - I don't know exactly how many of each, but I think he'll win them all and will achieve the number of ten slams, I sure am hoping him to break Sampras' record, but it's just so hard. If he takes his chances while he's dominating, he ends 2005 with more than half of his task accomplished.
15 AMS - There are nine every year, and he has 6 already, so not the hardest thing for him for the next three years to do.
7 TMC - You know, that's probably harder than achieving 10 slams and 15 AMS combined as there's just one per season and his reign could end if there's a new enough talented, consistent and spirituous to take his #1 spot and eventually beat him on a regular basis. But that demonstrates how many years I want him to dominate, once again, one more to break Sampras' record, though he won in 2003 when he finished #2.
70 Titles - That IS hard, assuming he has a long career like Agassi, he can do it.
7 years as #1 - Lucky seven to Federer's reign. He can regain his throne after that, also.
1 Grand Slam - In a calendar year, or the Federer Slam. Hopefully add a Golden Slam here, he'll still be good in Beijing.

I know this "Federer's career stats" are biased and unreal, even not likely, but I'd like it to happen. Actually, some are not that unlike to happen if he can keep up his rhythym for at least another two years.

Oh, are that Graf's real stats? If so, so impressive
I can see the 22 slams, but I didn't know about her Tier I results and years as #1, but you also should add a Golden Slam there in Federer's because Graf has one.


Roger Federer

Richard Gasquet, Marcos Baghdatis, Tomas Berdych, Evgeny Korolev, Stanislas Wawrinka, Fabrice Santoro, Paul-Henri Mathieu, etc

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

Why only 10 if you think federer will have a long career? HE has won 4 already, so only 6 more is really conservative! However I kind of like your other predictions even if they are not as optimistic (yeah, call it "crazy") as mine.

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

I mean you think he will win 1 calendar grand slam and that would give him 8 grand slams titles. So in the rest of his 5-10 more years in the top of tennis you think he will only win 2 grand slams?

I am not critisizing you, but I am curious to know why.

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

For Federer to break Sampras' GrandSlam count, would be quite an accomplishment. Though he's going to have to win at least two of them this year to keep in the hunt.

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

I say Roger can win a total of at least six singles major titles, at least seven total Masters Shields, and at least four total Masters Cups.

Re: Make your predictions for Federer's career (or any other player)!

I say he'll win...
Wimby 7 times
Garros once
AO 3 times
and the USO 4 times
He'll beat Sampras' record by one slam.
