Will Fed win more Wimbledons or more US opens?

People talk about Federer having his finest hours at Wimbledon but if you look at it much of his dominant play has come at the US open.

I personally think he has maybe more chance of keeping that US open record going.

Maybe its about the same? At the end of his career will he have more total Wimbledons or more total US opens? Or will it be the same ammount of each?

US Open suits him perfectly. He can win many more of those.

He's truly the king of hardcourts. He already has the record for most number of hardcourt slams. The only thing he doesn't have is the most number of hardcourt titles, I think he's 11 behind Agassi.

He still has a few more USO records to shoot for.

1. 6 USO
2. Lendl's 8 consecutive USO Finals which was supposed to be unbreakable. So plenty of motivation to keep winning there, and at Wimbledon where he only needs 2 more to match Sampras.

:baby: :p

more wimbly because it's his favorite tournament on his favorite/most natural surface and i bet he wants to exorcise that 2008 defeat by winning it 5 more times :devil:

He would win plenty of more Wimbledons if it was an actual grass tournament. But because the surface seems to get slower and slower all the time I´d say hard court suits him better.

I think it safe to say Wimbleton now.

Roddick will get a Wimby title, then Nadal and Murray will dominate the tournament.

And Del Potro and Djokovic will dominate the USO in the next few years.

Of course this is what i hope more than i think

He will aim at Wimbledon. That's sure.
It's - as we all know - the most important tournament of all and Federer wants the all time record.
Apart from this his greatest opponent will be del potro who has never achieved something at wimbledon, but won us open.

Definitely more Wimbledons. Delpo, Djokovic and Murray are huge threats at Flushing.

Agreed. His 2009 win against Roddick proved how badly he wants Wimbledon after Wimbledon

Wimbledon for sure. He plays his best tennis there, even when he's struggling elsewhere.

His movement is ideally suited for the surface, his serve becomes a weapon of death, and his backhand also becomes a ridiculous weapon (both topspin and slice). Most shots fall directly into his strike zone there and cuts down on his UEs.

Other than Nadal and Roddick, very few players can even play with him on that surface.

I think more Wimbledons.

However, don't count him out at the USO just yet. I'd say he bags one more before he retires.

I'd say Wimbledon, becuase of his game but I still think we can win the AO and the US Open, but I'd have to choose, I'd say Wimbledon

Definitely more Wimbledons. Djokovic and Murray are huge threats at Flushing.

Umm did you watch the latest two editions of this tournament?

Roger "Mono" Frauderer convincingly beat both in 2008, destroyed Djokovic in 2009 and Silly Dick took care of Murray for him.

Clearly Wimbledon is a more likely win for him. There's far more competition on hard courts, and his serve and slice are more effective on grass (even slow grass).

Despite last Wimbledon's score I don't class Roddick as having a chance of beating Nadal/Federer!

Well said. In addition, Federer and Nadal have the best balance and footwork by a wide margin on grass and clay {unstable surfaces}. Watching Nole slip n' slide on the lawns and looking at his treads as if they were to blame, is laughable ... small steps Djoker! small steps!.

And Murray? Well, he just looks very insecure on clay because he can't plant his feet firmly to generate power thru those thick legs of his, nor has he mastered the slide.

Wimbledon as he is already 6 to 5 with respect to USO.

Ummm, yes ... and in the most recent edition, Delpo won. The question posed was forward looking, so as Fed ages, Delps, Djoko and Murray will be entering their primes and therefore I think Fed will win more Wimbledons. Also, the next time you quote me, don't selectively eliminate words ("Delpo"). Thanks in advance ;) .
