If someone told you Roger would win only one slam next year and you could decide which one it would be, what would be your choice?

I personally would want to see him win Roger Garros to complete a carreer Grand Slam :D

RG first.
If not RG then wimblefed to make it 3 in a row.
3rd would be the US
And last but not least the AO

i think RG can wait
i think a loss at Wimbledon final will devastate him many times more, than the thrill he could get with winning the RG final

Roger Garros I think, although I am really torn. But I think it's better to get the RG title on his belt asap since his chances there will get smaller and smaller as he gets older.

Its a close call between Wimbledon and the FO but since Roger has indicated that Wimbledon will still be the main goal for next year I have to choose it, 3 Wimbledons in a row would be amazing.

RG. He will complete his personal GS and shut up those boring writers who claim Roger can't play " dirty". If he stays healthy, he can win Wimbledon even in his late 20's, but it's harder to do at RG.

Wimbledon.

I personally love Wimbledon by all means. I think Wimbledon is always the best stage for Roger. Not RG can afford to be compared with even despite the fact that he can complete a grand slam if with RG in hand.

HE must win wimbledon, I would more like him to win wimbledon than both AO and USO next year...

RG is the big bonus!

i think that wimbledon might be the easiest to win coz for the moment nobody is a big challenge to him on grass ( never seen him against agssi or henman on grass)
but FO will make him become the greatest of all times ;)

I can't decide between RG and Wimbledon. I really want him to complete the career grand slam, and it would be great to have the pressure taken off him as soon as possible, as it will be harder as the years go by to win RG, both physically and mentally.

But I also want him to win his third Wimbledon in a row. Only Perry, Borg and Sampras have won Wimbledon at least three times in a row since the abolition of the challenge round, and I'm sure this would be something Roger would want to accomplish also, especially as Wimbledon is his favourite slam.

So I find it really hard to choose between these two. Ideally, I'd like him to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon back-to-back in 2005. :) If he could win them both next year that would be amazing, and he would have accomplished three great things: completing the career grand slam; being the first since Borg to win Roland Garros and Wimbledon back to back; and winning his third Wimbledon in a row. :D That would be my dream for him.

1) AO - because it´s the frist of the year and I want him to start out great :)
2) RG - because I want him to win the only slam Sampres couldn´t :)
3) Wimby - because I don´t want anyone other to win it, till he retiers :)
4) USO - to rub it in :)
Because I don´t think he can win the GS, untill he actually did win it, I´m at a total lose :(

Oh,it is so difficult for me to make decision.
Of course I hope all of them.But since that only one could be choosed.
RG,at last RG became my choice.

Wimbledon for me. If someone else wins it that would mean something somewhere was very wrong.

It would be nice to see him win at Roland Garros too but that is much less prestigious than the All-England Championships.

Daniel

lets take one GS at a time, i still dream he can win all of them in 2005 :D :worship:

Roger-No.1
10-21-2004, 12:50 PM
1. WIMBLEDON,

then

2. ROLAND GARROS.

French Open is scheduled first. so he will have the chance to win that before Wimby.

Winnig FO and All England Club Championships will make Rogi and me happy. And if he also wins AO and/or USO , I'll be ecstatic!!!!! I will make a Rogi Federer statue in my living room and worship him forever.

Henman just lost in Madrid..... too bad. It's no surprise, but I bet he feels terrible... Top seed and all.... I wish him better luck next time.

Older?? I don't see him getting older soon. Yes, 25 is middle-age in tennis life, but I don't think that would stop him winning RG if he gets older.

If I can only choose one , that definitely must be Wimbledon. I simply can't imagine if he lose his Wimbledon title. That would be a huge disappointment and sadness for him I guess. :rolleyes:

From an egoistic point of view: RG because my coverage of RG tends to better than that of Wimbledon, after some consideration: Wimbledon, so that challenges remain.

Here is an excerpt how Roger described about Wimbledon.

" PRO GAME: Wimbledon Preview: Greener Grass
Federer proves that style and variety can still be a winning combination.Tennis at the All England Club has long been considered about as artful as a rock fight. But this year, thanks to the versatility of the world’s new No. 1s, Roger Federer and Justine Henin-Hardenne, the grass-court game should shine with a rich, deep glow.
By Peter Bodo
From the July 2004 issue of TENNIS Magazine
Note: Since this article was published, the following players have withdrawn from Wimbledon: Justine Henin-Hardenne, Kim Clijsters, Gaston Gaudio and Andre Agassi, among others.

I remember my first Wimbledon, when I was a junior in 1998. From the first day, I loved it. I was thinking, “This is Wimbledon. I made it to Wimbledon. It’s the greatest.” Now I can watch all the other players. Now I can play on the courts I’ve seen all my life on TV. I can play on the same courts where all the stars warm up, and have even played some of their early round matches.
Then came my first match. I was so nervous, at first I hit every serve into the net. I remember thinking, “This can’t be! I’m not this bad, I don’t serve so bad. Something is wrong.”
So I went up to the umpire--you have to imagine, this is at Wimbledon--and I said, “Excuse me, sir, can you please check the net? I think it is too high.” And I would never think the net is too high if that wasn’t the case. Not at Wimbledon!
The umpire comes down from the chair. He checks the net very carefully. He looks at me and says, “The net is correct.” That’s when I realized I was just so nervous because this was Wimbledon.
Roger Federer sat back when he finished telling this story at Indian Wells this spring. His elastic features broke into a wide grin, and he laughed so hard his eyes vanished into slits. Since that day at Wimbledon, he has continued to accumulate memories of the All England Club, albeit of a different kind: Shortly after that episode, the Swiss prodigy won the junior title there. Then, in 2001, he leapt, nearly life-sized, onto the back page of London’s tabloids with a ripping fourth-round upset of defending champion Pete Sampras. And last July, Federer produced the appropriate, if delayed, encore--he won the whole thing.

Wimbledon is clearly a dream for him. And consecutively winning this title is a way to keep the dream goes on and on....

Wimby I guess since from his performance on grass these last 2 years, it's almost like he "should" be winning there.

But I will be in heaven if he can win RG, I was already so happy with his win in Hamburg this year can't imagine if he wins RG.
