Fed to GOLDEN SLAM in 2008

Yeah that's right. In 2008 Fed is a pretty good bet to do the Golden
Slam. I predict he will be heavy favourite at FO starting from 2008.


This year Nadal is still strong, so they are cofavourites. Next year
Fed will have taken clay over. Expect all 4 slams and the olympic
gold in 2008.


You heard it here first. Mark it down.

Re: Fed to GOLDEN SLAM in 2008

In all honesty, I wouldn't be THAT shocked if Federer won the Grandslam in both 2007, and the Golden Slam in 2008, to bring his Slam count to 17, and having won 10 Slams in a row.

Do I expect that to happen? Nope.

Would I be that surprised IF it did happen? Not really.

Re: Fed to GOLDEN SLAM in 2008



Mods, can't we have all prediction threads merged into one?

Sorry kobulingam, but being in MTF for quite a few months now, I find prediction threads increadibly boring and totally useless, unless they have to do with upcoming tournaments where one knows more or less the condition and form players are in (although even then there are many unpredictable variables to consider).

Re: Fed to GOLDEN SLAM in 2008

well such a long term prediction can't be very accurate.What if he loses a little of his form or if he injures himself? You can't predict things like that.

Dreams of Federer lovers are so funny but they are becoming boring since end of 2003 all Federer lovers are saying that he will win all four GS and what ?? now they add olympic gold. in 2009 they will say that he will win all four GS, Champions League in football, Super Bowl and NBA championship and in 2010 Football World Cup

LOL, you make it sound like it's impossible.


Of course he can win the Golden Slam, but seeing as he has a good few months to lose form, get injured, become disinterested, become distraught by tragedy or impregnate and marry Mirka and metamorphose into a devoted family man, it really IS too early to say whether or not he will be in a position to do so. But if he wins all 4 slams this year, he'd be the favourite for every Slam in 2007 as well. And Olympic Gold really isn't that hard to achieve. He'll be 26, which really is peak form for a tennis player with his fluidity.


So, I wouldn't stake my house on it, but I'm pretty sure he will 2 Slams at least, along with the Gold at the Olympics.

Re: Fed to GOLDEN SLAM in 2008

A golden slam? who makes up these corney sayings. They should stop immediately
