Now that Federer has lost in 2006, when will he first win Roland Garros?

Here is an updated poll to replace a previous poll which is now obsolete.

Interesting to see if votes are more evenly divided among the various choices this time.

:shrug: I voted never, as there as wasn't an option for 'only if Nadal doesn't play that year' :p

i think it will be his dark beast this tournement, just like it was for sampras, who didn't win it either

06-15-2006, 06:45 AM
Probably never. He might get close, and lose to Nadal... or get close... and choke.

06-15-2006, 06:47 AM
answer: NEVER

I'll stick with that

he is still young, i think he will win this some day :wavey:

Next year he will win. He works step for step for the title :)

The same way Federer has a monopoly at Wimbledon, so I think Nadal has quite emphatically staked his claim over the French. So as long as Nadal keeps showing his face at Roland Garros, I don't think Federer has much of a chance.

Unless Nadal doesn't play one year.

Wimbledon is Feds, Roland Garros is Nadals.

I'm being optimistic and vote next year. However, if he doesn't win it next year he could feasibly develop a complex over this and never ever win it.

Federer did come a step closer this year. Maybe Federer and Nadal can reach an agreement whereby the latter lets Roger win Roland Garros and Federer conveniently runs into a netpost in a Wimbledon final versus Nadal?

Rafa = Fed Killa

Purple Rainbow has a good idea.

I can see it now. 3 years from now Nadal throws RG and Fed throws Wimbledon in the finals when they face each other. :D

David will win it next year, so perhaps in 2008 :D

2008: The year of Federer's Golden Slam.

yeah, 2008, I don't think he'll be mentally recovered to win by 2007
