Roger Federer, who is competing at his 50th major championship, is now 233-35 lifetime at the Grand Slams. It was also the 50th victory of his career.

"It's a big record, because that was longevity," said Roger Federer. "Jimmy is obviously one of the greats of all time, and was around for 20 years. so I'm very happy."


congrats:eek:

He's not amazing. :p

When I look at that stat, what's most impressive is the 35 losses. If you put that against 16 slams, 16-35, winning almost 1 of every 3 slams. Not bad Rog, not bad at all.

Laver is the best, his records can't be beaten

right. However, this is a fair opinion. The Laber era had few kinds of surface.
Roger has not said. "I'm greatest of all the times." He said that latest interview. "I know that I'm not best." Rod Laber has not said, "I'm greatest of all the times." And Sampras, Connors, Borg, etc. There is each difference in each era.

(And, now. goes into the time when a hard court and grass are slow.)

Sometimes I wonder what the obsession with statistics and records is all about, especially ones like this which supposedly indicate some kind of skill at longevity.

Time for a Mr. Oracle reality check--let's keep it real:

I have more respect for Nadal who sacrifices his body every match than for Federer for tanking many masters tournaments to save his body and peak for slams. But it doesn't surprise me that the fanboys are quickly coming out for some numerical masturbation. Look, how perverse and unjust is it that there are no accolades for sacrificing your joints but there is one for having a career for 20 years by playing it safe?

Big deal Fedtards go talk to some trees about it. How long do I have to suffer you?

I had to reply to the point bolded. Federer has not been doing that. You can be rest assured of that and his results off-late prove that. He gets beat by better players which is something we are used to for a few years but he is still posting some very consitent results throughout the course of the year (and not the slams alone).

Federer is turning 31. He isn't getting any younger and is still a threat to most tennis players. Of course he gets beat by players not named Nadal or Djokovic, but that still takes quite an effort from his opponents.

I do respect what Nadal and Djokovic are doing, but Federer is still producing some very good results.

If I recall correctly, it was Nadal and Djokovic who did nothing but tanking and whining in Madrid, whereas Federer kept his mouth shut and went on to win the tournament.

Federer has always been smarter about his scheduling, and his game is easier on the body than Nadalīs. Sure, he hasnīt always been that interested in some of the Masters-tournaments, let alone 500īs, but it is what it is. At his age, itīs only smart to choose your battles. And itīs not like Federer has reached his records by tanking...

Yes Federer has been tanking many masters and thats why he has the most wins there as well... At least check the facts before you start spinning your fallacies.

And that desperate childish outcry about sacrificing? Where to start...

It's simple. My argument has always been that if the 3 peaked at the same time and were the same age, they would have presumably split the slam count, with djoker leading slightly. You're mistake is that you are pitting so called peak Fed against 17 year old djoker. This is why your stats are flawed.

LOL? That is fucking bullshit. The type of player Djokovic hates are ones with variety and ones with big serves, both of which Federer has and one he mastered day in, day out during his peak years. Novak isn't going to touch Federer at Wimbledon, he'd lose to Federer at the US Open and he would split a couple matches here and there at the Australian Open. Just give Rafa the French Open either way, as Novak is still yet to touch Rafa at Roland Garros.

not about ifs. just goes to show that the statement fed would win at the us open is wrong.

It's simple. My argument has always been that if the 3 peaked at the same time and were the same age, they would have presumably split the slam count, with djoker leading slightly. You're mistake is that you are pitting so called peak Fed against 17 year old djoker. This is why your stats are flawed.
So by this logic, we're still and always will be in a 'weak era'. The only results that matter are those in an imaginary world where Nadal, Federer and Djokovic all peaked at the same time.

Of course, using your divine powers you can tell us what would have tell us what would have happened in this imaginary world. We may as well just stop watching tennis then, as 'real' results don't matter.

And the records keep falling. Pretty impressive that Fed broke this one so young. Connors played until he was 39, right?

LOL at the poster "split, with Novak slightly ahead" - if Fed is challenging Nole at 30+, what would he do in his prime?

Weak era is when lots of random players are making results and disappearing and so on. Another
proof of weak era is lots of old guys hanging around even when their psyciality is diminished
significantly.

you sure about that? first time GS finalist baby nole would have straight setted peak fed at the USO 07 if not for his nerves.

true story.

He had 40-0 set points in one set. Not the second and not the third. Even Baghdatis didn't choke set points against Peakerer :lol:

That was a lot more aggressive, short point, ball striker Djokovic than the one who plays today.

yeah, nole was so agressive, so fresh, shame he became more of a defender.

nole had 5 set points in the first. DFed at *6-5 to allow fed into TB. then DFed twice in the breaker, one was at set point federer.

then he was up a break in the second. choked it away. then he gets two set points on fed's serve, choked it away.

I think everyone with eyes could see that this baby nole was on par with the goat at his peak. I'm just saying this because there was a lot of talk about grandpa fed beating peak nole at RG 2011. ("imagine what peak fed would do to peak nole") ---> well, baby nole beat peak fed at rogers cup 2007 ("imagine what peak nole would to peak fed")----> error in the system

Well, the top 2 - 4 players have been dominant since 2005. And Ferrer and Federer are the only 'old' players still getting decent results. But then they still have a lot of their physicality.

Well, Federer let the Montreal match go in similar fashion, serving for the first set at 40 love up. In the USO final, Federer simply played very poorly, and had nothing on his groundstrokes. Arguably he played much better in the 08 final, even though that was a worse year overall.

If you want to see what Federer's absolute peak level is like, watch the first set of their Cincinnati 2009 final. No player is at their best all the time, though. For example, even though Djokovic has 'peaked', his level this year is much lower than in 2011.

he had 15-40 on Fed's serve in the second set on 6-5 that is a double set point

Besides that USO final though I didn't see Nole test Fed at all till USO 2010 onwards in a big tournament and I think that probably was down to the fact he wavered from his all-action dominatrix game he was showing late 07 to early 08.

I meant in terms of choking set points. The first set ones were on serve and he should have won it, but Fed dug his way out in the 2nd.

it was an entertaining match though, a lot more attack-minded and red hot Nole than the steady baseline slugger we see now sadly.
