Can Federer be the next Safin?

Let's suppose he will not win big tournaments AT ALL.

Can you imagine him going on like Safin, one early exit after another, or he will give up soon if the case ?

Safin = 2 slams

Fed = 12 slams

can't be compared. Period.

Safin's physical game has been screwed with injuries, and he's also much more of a headcase.

Federer is just a better player. Barring injuries, I can't see him playing mug tennis until he's at least 30.

when i came back home today, i thought the federer match had already finished. so i came here to check up the score. the first thing i saw was your thread. and i was like "S***" Fed must have lost, and with a semi-heart attack i rushed to check out the scores, and it turns out they were still in the tie break.............

federer is a legend and one of the sports great, so no. Even he starts losing and retire by the end of this year.

Exactly what I think.

However, I do think that making this anology is not that senseless, as some people said.

EDIT: I dont think he will retire by the end of this year. I think he will retire by the end he really starts declining (next year or after).

Federer is a mug who should never lose a set to a 30yo journeyman!

Yup. What's the difference between Safin and Federer? As Sampras would say: "ten grand slams." Rogelio's won too much in his career to truly turn into Safin (i.e. waste his God-given talent).

Not in his wildest dreams can Federer hope to match Safin's charisma. We are talking about charisma, right?

Safin's charisma is unmatchable for the FedMug.

I don't think. Even if Federer is now in decline and will probably lose his number 1 spot , he will surely keep a great level on some tournaments...

And I think he will retire before becoming like Safin.

federer can't be the next safin cause he hasn't enough talent as the russian.:devil::devil::devil:

no he will never ever be the racket smasher Safin is. Federer started very promising when he was young but he wasted it all.

actually they were not that far from each other regarding accomplishments when safin won the 05 AO, he got 2 slams, while roger just 2 aheaded, most people envisaged that safin would pose great challenge to roger, but its sad to see that after 3 years, safin won 0 titles? (or did he win some?), let alone a slam, while roger won 8 more :eek:
