If I can only choose one , that definitely must be Wimbledon. I simply can't imagine if he lose his Wimbledon title. That would be a huge disappointment and sadness for him I guess.

From an egoistic point of view: RG because my coverage of RG tends to better than that of Wimbledon, after some consideration: Wimbledon, so that challenges remain.

Re: Which slam would you like Roger to win the most in 2005

Here is an excerpt how Roger described about Wimbledon.

http://www.rogerfederer.com/modules....er=asc&start=0

" PRO GAME: Wimbledon Preview: Greener Grass
Federer proves that style and variety can still be a winning combination.Tennis at the All England Club has long been considered about as artful as a rock fight. But this year, thanks to the versatility of the world’s new No. 1s, Roger Federer and Justine Henin-Hardenne, the grass-court game should shine with a rich, deep glow.
By Peter Bodo
From the July 2004 issue of TENNIS Magazine
Note: Since this article was published, the following players have withdrawn from Wimbledon: Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters, Gaston Gaudio and Andre Agassi, among others.

I remember my first Wimbledon, when I was a junior in 1998. From the first day, I loved it. I was thinking, “This is Wimbledon. I made it to Wimbledon. It’s the greatest.” Now I can watch all the other players. Now I can play on the courts I’ve seen all my life on TV. I can play on the same courts where all the stars warm up, and have even played some of their early round matches.
Then came my first match. I was so nervous, at first I hit every serve into the net. I remember thinking, “This can’t be! I’m not this bad, I don’t serve so bad. Something is wrong.”
So I went up to the umpire--you have to imagine, this is at Wimbledon--and I said, “Excuse me, sir, can you please check the net? I think it is too high.” And I would never think the net is too high if that wasn’t the case. Not at Wimbledon!
The umpire comes down from the chair. He checks the net very carefully. He looks at me and says, “The net is correct.” That’s when I realized I was just so nervous because this was Wimbledon.
Roger Federer sat back when he finished telling this story at Indian Wells this spring. His elastic features broke into a wide grin, and he laughed so hard his eyes vanished into slits. Since that day at Wimbledon, he has continued to accumulate memories of the All England Club, albeit of a different kind: Shortly after that episode, the Swiss prodigy won the junior title there. Then, in 2001, he leapt, nearly life-sized, onto the back page of London’s tabloids with a ripping fourth-round upset of defending champion Pete Sampras. And last July, Federer produced the appropriate, if delayed, encore--he won the whole thing.


Wimbledon is clearly a dream for him. And consecutively winning this title is a way to keep the dream goes on and on....

Wimby I guess since from his performance on grass these last 2 years, it's almost like he "should" be winning there.

But I will be in heaven if he can win RG, I was already so happy with his win in Hamburg this year can't imagine if he wins RG.

I voted for RG but I want to see him defend at the USO in 2005--for purely selfish reasons , I must say--so I can be there !!
