Records for Federer to beat this year this year!

Hello Federer fans. I am back here, but writing from a friend in Rio de Janeiro. SO I wont be here too often the next couple of days. You know I am a record-freak, so I was thinking to myself what kind of records Federer could still break this year and figured out the most mindblowing would be +100 victories in 1 year, now I dont think he will have 100 victories but I think he can, even if it is almost impossible, specialy winning Madrid-basel-Paris back to back. He could also only win 1 round in Paris/Basel/MAdrid and win the rest of the tournaments this year.

Federer has won 49 out of his last 50 hard court games, so wouldnt winning something like 42 out of his next 43 atleast be possible? Ofcourse he cant rest any tournament/get injured and he will have to win many titles back to back, like I said close to impossible.

Other records Federer could beat this year:

win+3 master series
win all 4 north american master series in 1 year.
beat Mcenroes 96% matches won year 1984
equal Connors winning 26 titles in 2 years (would need to win all tournaments to do so)
End with more ranking points than he did last year (only =300 left)

Well, I am sure there are many more records to still beat this year, if you are a record troll like me write them down and also remember this season might turn out to be even more stunning than last year. All we can do is hope for the best and I am sure Federer will deliver it for us.

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

RonE came up with a good one Makro. Defend both Wimbledon and USO titles something Pete didn't even do. It's rarely been done.

Re: Records for Federer to beat this year this year!

Welcome back, Makro! I knew you couldn't live without us!
I'll post some interesting records to break if I can come up with them!
The largest year-end entry ranking total is very well possible this year. Also, Roger could try to break a record for most consecutive matches won. He's now on a 12 game winning streak and a great American Hardcourt season could see him eclips 30, which he has never done before.
Winning only the US Open would be good enough for me, though!

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

Don't you mean 12 game winning streak (Halle (5) + Wimbly(7) ) instead of 1

Did I really come up with it? Heh. I will have to thank my alter-ego for that next time I meet him.

Great to have you back Makro! Please stay (at least in the Federer Forum if not in GM).

Re: Records for Federer to beat this year this year!

Thank you all, what a great positive response from all of you!

No, I cant live without you, but I will have to for some more weeks as I am in holidays in south america and I dont have a computer with me.

Anyway, I would love Federer to win a 50 consecutive wins or something this season, it is annoying because if it wasnt for that missed match point against Safin Federer would have won +50 straight matches.

Another record would be winning 3 straight times TMS cup without losig a match. Also the prizemoney record Sampras had was 6.5 milion US$, something I really think Federer could break and not to forget I really want Federer to continue his 21 straight finals record as mentioned, it already has legendary status and will probably be unbeaten the next 100 years or so....

Another record could also be winning his 6 1st grandslam finals and therefor beating himself doing so. A more odd record would be winning 4 titles in europe, north america and asia, I am not sure this has been done before.

Last but not least Federer isnt negative against anyone in the tour this year, he is equal only to those he lost SAfin, Nadal and Gasquet, against all of them he is 1-1 this year!

Prediction for the rest of the decade:
Federer winner: Usopen 05, 06, 07, 09 Aopen:06, 07, 10 Roland GArros:06, 08 Wimbledon:05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 (Roddick always runner up)
Safin winner: Aopen 08 Gasquet winner: USopen 08, Aopen 09, RG: 10
Nadal winner: RG 07 Monfils winner: USopen 10
Guga winner: RG 2010
Roddick and Hewitt together winner of: 3 sidney, 4 Adelaide, 3 washington, 3 san jose, 3 indianapolis, 2 houston, 2 memphis, 5 queens and one master series title (where Safin, Agassi, Federer and Nadal happens to all be injured).

Re: Records for Federer to beat this year this year!

Roger could actually win maybe 5 or 6 master titles. That would surely be a record nobody could match.
