Will Roger Federer ever win Roland Garros?

Again, I'm sorry if there's already a thread for this.

Will Rafa always be there to stop him? Or will Roger start getting the better of him, on the dirt? Are there any other factors?

Thoughts please!

Re: Will Roger Federer ever win Roland Garros?

This has already been done.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Will Roger Federer ever win Roland Garros?

But, even with a good draw, doesn't he need to beat Rafa?

I don't know. Maybe. Pete never won RG so who's to say the same fate may not befall Roger?

Re: Will Roger Federer ever win Roland Garros?

Yes it is probable that Roger Federer will win the French Open. However, John McEnroe, Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg and Pete Sampras all FAILED to win the French Open and complete their full set of 4 grand slams. Actually I think Nadal is more likely to win the US Open and possibly Andy Roddick is to win Wimbledon than Roger is to win the French Open.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 19 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 26 Master Series.
Nadal 15 GS, 30 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 12 GS, 5 Year End Masters, 30 Master Series.
