since it's safe to say roger will win WTF, doha, AO and then reach at least the semis of IW, he could very well have a 30+ match winning streak! not bad for a 30 year old!:worship::worship:

He will also play Davis cup and Rotterdam I think, well he probably wont win AO but he is on good way to win Doha, YEC and atleast get to semis in AO. I say he is on good way to get to 25+ in a row.

I honestly don't see who would stop him at the AO. Djokovic was on fire last year and probably won't repeat that level of play. federer was just average but still made it competitive.

Djokovic is the favorite at the AO. He's beaten him in straight sets the last two times they've met there and he's won the tournament twice. Fed is the clear second favorite though.

No need to troll a troll. Federer is still playing deep into the second week of majors. He can absolutely still win slams, especially if he gets a break in the draw, ala Sampras 2002 USO (or in that case, 3-4 breaks). Fed is still also a clear favorite to win any hardcourt slam over Nadal. Djokovic is the favorite, but if he falters, Fed will be right there to take advantage.

Well, Djokovic and Nadal were healthy and playing good tennis last year in the end of the season. This year they both seem finished, dont know if they will come out on fire next season in Australia, Djokovic looks absolutely drained.

Never know...If he is really good like everbody talk he can win GS's and beat everybody but it's cleary Federer has a complex of Djokovic on GS's recently and he can't win GS if he plays at his this year level.

to my mind the only threat for Roger at the AO is nadal. djokovic will have a tremendous amount of preasure and will likely get owned by fed or murray.
at RG: same story, djokovic is no threat for Roger on clay.
Wimbledon: fed got extremely unlucky last couple of years to play against players who had the match of their lives. I'm willing to bet the Maestro will put things in order this year.
US open: same thing, got extremely unlucky last 3 years. The revenge will be implacable!

in fact, I see Roger winning between 1 and 3 slams next year. He has a chance at all of them, but will probably run off with Wimbledon and US open.

I must say I find it very strange (and suspicious) that they are so crap (tired) at this time of year. They've had a long time to rest and are in their prime. Federer has never had problems playing well the entire year. Even when he was winning 80 matches a year, he was still fit at the Masters Finals.

I think it is the same thing that happened when Nadal played Djokovic in Madrid 2009, that match in Usopen this year was absolutely devestating for both of them. I have never seen a grand slam final when both players are completely drained in the final set. Instead of beeing smart and take a break Nadal had to go defend his Tokyo title and further made his condition worse, Djokovic had the obligation to defend his country which he was in no way fit to do and then Djokovic had to play Basel and Paris for some reason when he really needed to rest. In fact Djokovic made his first mistake playing Cincinatti when his body clearly was tired, these decisions will hit back on you later on in your career.

Imagine now if Djokovic and Nadal would play a 6 hour long 5 set match in a grand slam? They would need to take a 6 month break to recover....

the only reason why Federer won no slam this year is because he faced Gilles Simon in the AO second round. Simon has the gift to make federer doubt about his game.
Federer was carrying t his great form of end 2010 to Doha and the AO, and then in the 3rd set against Simon, it was all gone! No doubt Federer would have won the AO if idiotic ATP hadn't rigged the draw to put Simon on his way!

Federer was average? Go back and read all the articles at that time, even the ATP page. They were all talking about Federer's Master Class over Wawrinka in the QF's and his great form, since winning the WTF in 2010. It's very interesting to read those articles, no hindsight at all. Federer and Murray overhyped as usual. Nobody saw Novak coming. Even the bookies were giving 1.12 or something like that for Federer and 3 for Novak in their semi. (I paid for my entire family's tickets to Europe by betting on Novak, it was such a good deal because everybody was following the hype).

And now we start again. A win at the WTF, even an emphatic one like last year's doesn't mean much. Wait and see. Don't jump the gun. Or maybe I should say, jump the gun, I hope many do, so that I can make 4000 pounds again. :lol:

Federer has never had problems playing well the entire year. Even when he was winning 80 matches a year, he was still fit at the Masters Finals.

It's not just about the number of matches. Our sport is more subtle than that. Each match is different. To beat a top 10 player is much harder, not only on the body, also on the mind, than to beat 2 ranked 30 or 40. That's what makes our sport interesting.

Rafa and Novak played in almost all the important finals this year, against each other, long, draining duels. Novak also beat Roger 4 times in very tough semis and finals. You cannot do that and not expect the effort to show in your body and in your mind.

With all due respect, but when Roger played 80 matches he was beating Kiefer, Srichaphan, Haas, Baghdatis, Ferrero, etc in the semis and finals. Not at all the same. Not his fault of course, just don't compare their seasons as if all matches were the same. We've benn watching tennis long enough to know that's not true. :)

Novak will hopefully learn from the experience and plan his year better in 2012, at the moment, his eyes look dull, as if he couldn't care about winning anymore. Of course. He beat Fedal 10 times this season. In one year he almost beat Nadal more times than Federer in 5 0r 6 years. And you wonder he's exhausted? :confused:

Fed beat Nadal in a five set Wimbledon final lasting over four hours in 2007 and beat Djokovic in a competitive USO final yet still went on to win the Masters Cup at the end of the year. Your point?

I'm of 2 minds about this streak. On the one hand, I know he plays best when his confidence is high, but if he's going to play well for a period of time, I'd love that to happen around FO/W time. He had such a great streak end of last year and faltered at AO with nothing really to show for it (at this point in his career only GSs really matter). I think he'd be ecstatic if he won 1 GS (I'd like it to be W) and Olympic singles Gold next year.

Nadal has always been a bad match-up for Roger but not for Novak. Like it's been said repeatedly already, Nadal and Novak both have only themselves to blame for the playing style that they have adopted. For Novak, I believe he has the talent to play a more economical and aggressive game - he doesn't need to spend so much time on court slugging it out from the baseline. He has quite a complete game and he can use it to his advantage, but for some reason it hasn't quite worked out that way.

It's not really about the opponent per se as much as it is about playing style. I don't believe that Roger wasn't exhausted when he played 80 matches a year and utterly dominated the tour; it's just not possible for a human being to not feel tired after racking up so many matches. It's his playing style that's kept him fit and competitive for an entire season and towards the end of the season. That, and his scheduling.

With regard to this winning streak thing, as a hardcore Federer fan I don't care how many matches he wins in a row as long as he wins the actual tournament, and starts winning slams again. It may be a bit early to discuss this now as he hasn't won the tournament yet, but I hope that his good year-end results give him some real momentum going into next year. I think everyone thought that he'd win in Australia this year, but it was not to be. I hope that changes. No idea if it would, but I really hope it does.

I don't really see why you keep hammering the relation of a player's ranking to the mileage it puts on your body. It doesn't matter if you're playing world no. 2 or world no. 100, if that player extends you to a five-setter, it will take a toll on your body. And even if what you're saying happens to be true, Federer played like 20+ more matches in 2006 than Djokovic in 2011, surely that's enough to offset whatever more mileage Djokovic got from playing top ranked players.

Federer's style of play is just easier on the body than Djokovic's, that's all there it to is really.

Federer played 23 matches against the top 10 in 2006. Djokovic has played 24 so far this year. There is hardly any difference so the "matches against top 10 are so hard" line is bs.

Rafa and Novak played in almost all the important finals this year, against each other, long, draining duels. Novak also beat Roger 4 times in very tough semis and finals. You cannot do that and not expect the effort to show in your body and in your mind.

Um, Roger played Nadal 6 times in 2006 (same number as Novak this year) and 4 of those were best of five set matches compared to just 2 for Djokovic this year.

That's 22 sets against Nadal for Federer (13 on clay) compared to 18 sets against Nadal for Djokovic (4 on clay).

Federer in 2006 played
a) 22 more matches than Djokovic this year
b) 37 best of 5 set matches compared to 27 for Djokovic.

The simple matter of the fact is that Djokovic couldn't stay fit for the entire year like Federer. Can you refute my points? Or will ignore this post because you have no legitimate response?
