Will He or Wont He

Do you think that during his career Roger will ever win the grand slam? It is possibly the hardest feat in tennis and i personally think he probably won't quite manage it although obviously there is no way we can say as Roger has a lot of time left to play.

Champions deserve whatever they win playing within the laws of the game

Re: Will He or Wont He

Let's not be biased. I can see him winning 2 or 3 in a year a few more times in his career. The pressure of acheiving a Grand Slam is too much for Roger.

Re: Will He or Wont He

Nadal could do it in a few years time... But Roger? Hell no.
His time at the top is almost over.

Re: Will He or Wont He

I believe Roger will win a "career" GS...by eventually adding RG to his resume. But as for winning all four in one year...no-no. There are too many other good players.

I love my girls.

Re: Will He or Wont He

No, I dont think so. As dominate as he has been, the game remains far too competitive for one player to win all 4 slams in a single season.

You might as well say that for Nadal too

I don't think Roger will win the GS, as much as I'd like him too. Nadal probably has less chance than Gasquet.

I think Federer is the only guy with a legitimate chance of winning the slam. I could see Nadal winning 3/4 majors(though not in one season), but I dont see him winning Wimbledon.

Re: Will He or Wont He

Again: it's too soon to talk about a career slam for Nadal and most certainly for Gasquet.
So, that's not relevant here.


Federer? Does he stand a chance? Yes, sure but that's not the question, is it?
Will he get it? My answer? I hate predictions so I say that it's too difficult to tell. A lot of things can happen in the mean time. (can I be more vague? )

In short: yes, he has a chance for a career slam.

Re: Will He or Wont He

it is difficult to tell - but i don't think so, he will has to defeat nadal at the french open etc....t is too difficult - you always have to play on your best, so i doubt it

why is it easier to hurt someone with words than with deeds?

Roger will never win at Roland Garros. much like Pete Sampras, he can't win on clay. As long as Rafa is around (which is for the rest of Roger's life), he will never take the FRENCH OPEN.

Stop comparing Pete and Roger on clay because it's not a fair comparison. Roger could beat Rafa at RG some year. The idea that he won't be able to adapt long enough to not error himself to death against Nadal is ridiculous. Roger only has a few clay titles because he doesn't play much clay tennis. Roger is one of the top clay courters in the world.
