Federer is a lock for #18 at AO 17

With so many jinx threads failing spectacularly in the past few days, I wanted to create one that will not prove to fail.

Trust me on this guys, after a seemingly shaky start, Federer has finally found his serve, FH and BH, is clearly unstoppable right now and will cruise to set a new record of 18 slams (and then hopefully retire afterwards).
Nadal has been steely but not unconquerable, and this quick surface should prove a nice boost for Federer. And not even Stanimal can say anything about it. The stars have aligned.

Not going to happen. There's no Fairytales in tennis.

I'd like to think Federer did not beat Nishikori for nothing with this 1/1000000 kind of draw opening.

Yeah because Nishikori has such as great record of losing to eventual champions in slams right?

Re: Federer is a lock for #18 at AO 17

Make a thread for Nadal, Wawrinka and Grigor then.

Nah there's never any fairytales in tennis.

The only thing tennis likes to do is stab me in the back, and break my heart, again and again and again and again.

Whatever happens, Federer is the real champ.

It will happen because Pete Sampras ' record will be broken . IMO American do not like their record of GS' to go down in 3rd place or even on 4rd place in one year . I mean Djokovic is still alive and can play.

I remain amazed at how many RAFA fans want Fed to lose early.
Wouldn't it be ideal for your idol to meet Federer in the final? Wawrinka has a much better chance to beat Nadal.
Bargearse and Antonietta like this.

I thought they changed Djokovic with Nadal in your conspiracy theory, probably now they(the men running the tennis) reverted back to Nadal?

Oh yeah. At this stage, Federer to beat Nadal in a Grand Slam match...I see.

Nadal would demolish Federer if he takes out Wawrinka.
