At which Slam would you want to see Roger break the record?

In a perfect world scenerio, at which Slam would you like to see Roger break Pete's record? I started thinking about this as I was looking for articles and watching sports shows about the U.S. Open final, but it always gets buried by the football season starting. Don't get me wrong, I would be happy if it happens at any of them but IF he breaks it, I guess I would just like it to happen at a Slam that isn't overshadowed by football so he could get some decent press in the American media. My choice would be at Wimbledone because it is his favorite (and if we're really lucky it would be 2008)! I hope I'm not jinxing this, but I'm just curious.

Roland Garros so he kills two birds with one stone.

You'd hope if such a tremendous thing came to pass (Fed breaking Pete's record), it wouldn't be overlooked! But there you go, the press can get lopsided with national craze sports. Guess it's lucky then that the best possible scenario involves Roland Garros to tie...and Wimbledon to break it - now that'd be lovely . Here's hoping next year's the perfect year.

Re: At which Slam would you want to see Roger break the record?

Either RG or Wimbledon would be ideal...so if he won RG and Wimbledon in 08...and then reached 15 at Wimbledon the following year, that would be awesome.
Or if he won Wimbledon and something else in 08...and then broke Pete's record at RG in 09.

Im not particularly fussed though in general...as long as he does it at somepoint...I'm sure it will be an unbelievable moment in tennis history regardless.

Golden slam. Yummy.

ROGER FEDERER

the recipe is simple yet but extremely rare:buckets of athletic ability coupled with gallons of mental tenacity are the core ingredients that produce a Tiger Woods,a Michael Jordan...a Roger Federer


roger is the best

wimbledon, obviously

Re: At which Slam would you want to see Roger break the record?

it would be great if roger can win australian open and RG to reach 14 grand slam, and break pete`s record in wimbledon, where it all started, and in pete`s favourite slam.

He will probably lose at RG again so I won't mind if he equals the record at Wimbly. If he does, it will already be an excellent year with two slams.
