Will Federer Break Petes Record?

I'm a HUGE Federer fan and I was a big Sampras fan as well.

I thought it was unlikely of Federer to break Petes record but the way things are going, it really looks like Federer might do it!

What do you guys think? Do you think Roger is going to do it? Do you want him too? And if he does break Petes all time grand slam record where would you guys want it to take place?

I think if Federer does end up breaking Petes record, Pete should be there. I think that would be pretty cool. It sucks Petes record holding is seemingly so short but I still think that would be a great moment.

What do you guys think?

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

i think so, coz he is only 25 and already won 9 slams, he can play till 30, so i guess he will gonna win 19 slams , waaa, poor pete has to finish no.2 behind him

sorry, i know roger will break the record but i don't want him to, i don't like him nor i dislike him, but that i like pete more, i want him to keep the record, but sadly i don't see he can keep it for long

Rafa! Rafa! Rafa!

Epic movies, like brokeback mountain, are seldom found in the industry or worthy for the mainstream viewer. As often as I have watched the clips of this movie, I always find something more to it. For one, the gay stuff doesn't enter the picture for me, only the dimension of the highest love I have ever witnessed in life or on film.

Hi there jacobhiggins

He could break the record and he also could not, who can tell what will happen in the next few years, anything can, so I can't say for sure - and i for one hope he doesn't do so.

I want to see that record stay for awhile longer.

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

Well he would have to win 2 more slams next year to keep the pace .

I think he will at least tie the record .

I thin Roger has an excellent chance of breaking Pete's awesome slam record, but I would hope at the same that Roger won't break it........It's kinda weird to say that when I love them both

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

Roger would deserve to break that record as he's a better allround player (and I'm sure he will).

(Angiel, no need to insult me, that's just my opinion to the thread issue )

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

I think he is a better all around player too so I hope he breaks it as well.

It would be a shame if he doesn't and it will be a shame if he dosen't win the French!

Records are made to be broken I say, I just didn't think a player like Federer would come right after a player like Sampras!

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

angiel, he is too sensitive i.e. i just said the players are afraid of roger that they lost before they face him and he respondned that I always try to find way to bash roger , but in fact it was a praise coz what i meant was that roger is almost unbeatable

its truth that i love pete more and i will defend him whenever people said untrue or insulting things on him, but that does not mean i fail to acknowledge roger's greatness , i will give him credit whenever i think it is justified

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

Whoever ends up with the record deserves the record as far as I am concerned. Neither will be begrudged by me at least... and this is coming from a hardcore Federer fan. If Federer is great enough to beat Sampras' total by more than 2 without a French Open then he is greater.. if Sampras keeps it by more than 1 or 2 then he is greater. If Federer ends up with 12 slams but 1 french open and more overall titles, then I would find it hard to seperate them. If Federer wins 13, 14 or 15 without a French Open then I am not going to say either one is greater.

What I will say is Federer beats Sampras prime for prime on todays courts more often than not.. and Sampras on the courts of yesteryear moreoften than not.

Anyway those are my opinions and if you could be arsed to read that then cheers.

Re: Will Federer Break Petes Record?

Dont listen to Jacobhiggens, I know him from another forum, he is NOT a federer fan, he is just a kid and he LOVESS and ADORES federer, he used to always talk badly about pete on the other forum saying that pete was never considered great at the same age as Federer etc etc. Federer is more consistent from the back court but what the kids will never understand is the depth of the net court game, anticipation, net coverage, reaction skills, Sampras is far superior to federer in every way at the net but i will argue that federer has a better drop volley, sampras was also more solid, he rarely missed the tough high volleys or the dipping attempted passing shots, and he didnt need to run around the forehand at the net (Like federer did at RG he lost that point at 40 love then lost that service game). Then theres confidence at the net, Federer has a better return, and better defense, he has better stamina, and unlike pete he didnt "tank" matches in tournaments outside the Grandslams, if he "didnt feel like playing his best" (which is something that really annoyed me about pete), Federer also has a better inside out forehand for sure and more variety off that wing, Pete had more power and anyone who was born before 1990 when pete first played who WATCHED tennis back in those days, knows that Pete had an exceptionally solid and deadly backhand down the line and cross court and even his slice USED to be great and he changed the direction on the ball excellently on both wings, but that side of his game really started to die down after timmy got sick in 95 when he GOT LAZY AND STOPPED TRAINING ON HIS ALLROUND GAME, thats another annoying thing about Pete, Federer is more motivated to train his allround game than pete was, pete was the one who made his forehand stronger and his backhand great and consistent and made him dangerous on clay, when he wasnt there to push him pete just focussed on wat he wanted to do but Federer isnt like that.

I have NO DOUBT, that Federer will demolish all of petes records, and I think he will win at least one french NO DOUBT, Id be suprised if he didnt win 2. He will also win at least 7 YEC masters cups, and will win more masters titles than agassi, he will build more than a 60 match/5-6 year grass winning streak, and will win wimbledon MORE than 7 CONSECUTIVE times, He himself said he believes he will beat Petes Wimbledon record and get more consecutive than Borg, I have no doubt he will.

I didnt believe nadal would make the final of the french this year, let alone win it, I LOVEEEE RAFA but next year will be his most testing year, and lookin at the US Series.... things are going downhill for him, then Federer will remain unchallenged except for Baghdatis and Gasgquet maybe a bit of a challenge, but I think he will win the Calendar Grandslam next year, and i think he will win the Golden grandslam by winning at Beijing and he wishes to retire At SW19 in 2012 after winining gold in the olympics. His FOCUS AND MOTIVATION, tell me that nobody will stop it, Rafa could and would with his own drive and mental strength, but his game is too physical and demanding for him to keep up. Oh and he will be minimum 7 years at number 1 most likely 8 years, but i think after 7 he will drop down cos he is already saying that the pressure of being number 1 can get pretty draining at times, so no point after breaking the record.
