3 GS titles and the final of the fourth for Federer

How agonisingly close to a Grand Slam! A single loss from Nadal ruined it...

Not really. Marat beat him at the AO, eliminating all hope in 05. And Nadal will continue to deny him the French unless he gets injured

I, er, uh, concur.

Maybe Federer will dedicate next year to the French and bypass everything before the clay season? Seems bloody unlikely but I'm sure he'll throw everything and more into the French next year.

He did grow up on clay, has won three Hamburg titles and made the semis in 05' and final in 06' so hopefully he can take a lot of confidance into next year knowing he has been improving.

...Or hopefully some other player can defeat Nadal before the final.....

Argh - I forgot on the Safin loss - I will edit my post now

As for the French, Federer is able to win it but I don't think he will ever again have a chance to make a Grand Slam as he had this year
