Federer legacy jeopardized

There's a better player than him on four different surfaces (clay, American green clay, indoor clay and hardcourt - which constitutes about 75% of the season) and there is a new crop of talented, fearless players (Gael Monfils, Andrew Murray and Matej Bocko).

He barely won a tournament on his best surface, almost losing to O. Rochus. Will Roger turn things around or does depression await him?

The last time I checked he won 3 Slams in a row, reached FO final, 7 Slams in total, 38 titles as of today (see Halle), and the has lost 14 times since the 2004 season (6 of those losses came to Rafael Nadal). Where's the problem?

clay, American green clay, indoor clay are not this considered CLAY only?...

Anyway i understand the big difference between green clay and red clay, but if im not mistaken the mens tour has only 1 event on that surface the whole calendar year is not it? :confused:

So clay and indoor clay= red clay after all :rolleyes:

Plus Federer, not even counting MS titles, has 2 grand slams and the Masters finals on hard courts, is there anybody out there better than Federer at the moment? :wavey:

This thread is pathetic :rolleyes:

Federer depress? he just came out from his best ever year on clay. :worship:

Nadal + many youngsters to come (see post number 1).

Nadal, I'll give you.

But until these "many youngsters to come" beat Roger consistently, you, my friend, are talking out of your rear tail-pipe.

Err........the ATP tour does not have a single event on "American green clay". Houston is played on red clay. There is not a single event played at ATP level on indoor clay either. I believe there are some green clay events still remaining on the challenger tour however. So if Roger Federer's ranking should fall out of the top 100 he might struggle getting used to all those American green clay events at challenger level. But until that happens I very much doubt Mr Federer loses alot of sleep worrying about green clay.

Nadal could be the one overtaking him, but lets wait until after Cincy until we know about the hc future. The hc results of 2006 so far clearly speak in Fed's favour.

Itís true; Federer is washed up. Hell, he probably wonít win more than 4 or 5 more majors and lose the number one ranking in 3 years or so. Time to hang it up and go fishing.

Thatís the problem when an athlete sets the bar so high. Heís expected to win all the time under all conditions or people say heís losing it. The same thing happens to Tiger Woods

O. Rochus is a pretty damn good player with a lot of heart. Don't denigrate him.

That is actually a disaster, because 7 + 5 = 12 < 14. :sad:I wouldnít call 12 majors a disaster, itís just that with the tremendous mental and physical stress of the modern game, coupled with the tremendous amount of money involved, I donít see Fed playing beyond 27 or 28. Just a guess, of course, but Iíd be willing to bet he doesnít make it to 14 slam titles.

Yup, there are some attention getters on the forum for sure.
These non-believers....Roger will prove them wrong when he bagels Nadal next year.
NADAL IS GOING DOWN...:D.

Lol @ this thread! And love the picture above btw. Federer isn't going to go anywhere just yet. Yep, maybe Nadal will take over in a few years time, but we should wait and see how that rivalry develops. Yes, the young 'uns will keep coming up, but as long as he remains focused and injury free, no reason why he shouldn't whup most if not all of them. I'm not even a Federer fan, but even I can appreciate what he has brought, and will bring, to the game. Pessimistic and a little infantile observations like the OPs are funny, but also a little sad...people like that really do exist!! :-s
