Question What are Federer's streaks?Who will end them?

Mainly he has 4 streaks now:

1) 31 matches unbeaten streak
2) 24 matches unbeaten streak on finals
3) 40 matches unbeaten streak on hard courts
4) 36 matches unbeaten streak on grass courts

According to you which is harder to beat? Also name the players that you
believe will end these streaks. Here is my opinion:

1) Rafa
2) Rafa
3) Rafa
4) Alien

As you see the hardest to beat according to me is grass court streak.
What are your thoughts?

I agree with 1), but disagree with 2) or 3)

I dont think nadal or anyone in the current tour has good chances to beat the final streak. This is a streak which was last held by players like Borg and McEnroe. 24 finals is incredible. and nadal on the hardcourt will do well, but I dont think that good to beat this streak. But on 1) I agree nadal has chances especially in his strong tournament surface of clay

i thought he meant to end the streaks, not surpass his records.

Rafa is good but indoor hard he's not the best. I think he could end the finals streak in RG 06

Yes PaulieM you're right. I mean the player who will end this streak not beat the streak record. But I also think that Nadal has a chance to beat these numbers on clay courts...

Re: What are Federer's streaks?Who will end them?

Roger will end his streak when he shows up too tired mentally or physically, or his feet are bothering him too much as in AO, to allow him to play to his standard. Whoever is on the other side of the net is merely the recipient of a gift. It's like saying that Gasquet "beat" Roger this year. Technically true, except that Roger was playing when he needed to rest after his b2b Am. Masters' Victories & his feet were injured. So, don't be surprised if it's Joe Schmoe on the other side of the net when Roger finally wears down.

Don't be disrespectful Gasquet is 12 in the world at 19, he's not a fluke and he's very talented...

A very good point. Gasquet wouldn't have stood a chance of winning with his passive, reactive game if Federer hadn't been physically below-par. Those umpteen forehand and backhand winners straight off the return and off the ground, including on matchpoint, were obviously winners because Federer's feet were no longer getting him to the ball. Sad.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: What are Federer's streaks?Who will end them?

Also Nadal has very good numbers despite his young age:

1) 24 matches unbeaten streak (if he had skipped grass court season it
could be 40!!!)
2) 8 matches unbeaten streak on finals which is close to previous record
set by Borg and JMac (still counting...)
3) 36 matches unbeaten streak on clay (still counting...)
4) 9 matches unbeaten streak on clay court finals. He hasn't lost a clay
court final yet (still counting...)

If Roger is tired and he loses that's his fault. Being tired is no excuse to lose. Almost everyone in the tour is tired with their schedule and Roger does not even play every week. The one thing that really pisses me of when I watch tennis matches is when those commentators attribute Federer's difficult matches to him being rusty and explanations that will not blemish the divinely pure talent of the great ROGER FEDERER. This of course leave no credit to his opponent. The press would then ask the opponent 'How in the world you made the match to difficult for Federer?' The opponent would then bow to the haloed Federer and say "Federer had a bad day". "He was so rusty I could have use WD-40 on him".

And why would he even be mentally tired I thought he's the king of that mental thing. Everyone has a bad day,You Federer fans-the leech of his success-should be happy that it does not happen to him to often. And about his feet bothering him too much at AO. He should have called me, I could have amputate them for free.
