...Roger Federer has been leading the title winning stats for 4-years now:

2000: Safin 7-titles
2001: Hewitt & Guga 6-titles
2002: Hewitt & Agassi 5-titles
2003: FED 7-titles
2004: FED 11-titles
2005: FED & Rafa 11-titles
2006: FED 12-titles
2007: ???...[currently FED & RAFA on 6-titles]


...
...
However Federer is surely wanting to focus increasingly on the important events only [Slams, TMC & favourites etc.].

So at some point this year or next year somebody else will perhaps win more titles overall in a year than Federer, in fact Nadal surprisingly matched him in 2005 [though it looks unlikely that Rafa will be able to win 11-tourneys in a calendar year again]..
...
...

`@@` Can Federer maintain his position & dominance by winning the most titles again this year:confused: , either way ~~ what other players do you think can win a stack of titles in 2007:confused:

#Malisse is leading the titles count for 2007~> Xavier is the only man to have won 2-titles so far this year;)

ROTFLMAO! Are you serious? You can't be. Fed wants to win and there is nothing or noone that can change or stop him. Anyone with a chance is way too inconsistent, and the consistent people are no match-up for Fed. Anyhoo, he'll be the title winner for lack competition and desire to be the greatest (hands down) of all time.

2005 was the year Nadal played every MM clay tourney in the book, thus the 11 titles; if he's going to continue to play more on HC surfaces to improve his game don't expect him to repeat that number. Federer is still going to show up at every TMS event he can, with the likely conclusion that he will win the vast majority of them, at least the non-clay ones. Throw in Dubai, Basel, and any other smaller tournament he chooses to participate in and you have your predictable answer. Federer will stop winning the most titles whenever his form starts to slip, and only then.

I expect Roger to be dominant again, and I don't mean the Sampras kind of dominant. Not that Pete wasn't dominant he was just less dominant, and the amount of tournamants won (among other things) show domination.

he will enter at least 15 tournies and if he wins less than 10, that means he will lose more than 5 times. not very likely imo.

To turn this round, what are the chances of Federer successfully defending his 12 titles, as well as nicking Dubai, MC, Rome, RG and Cincy? Will Nadal successfully defend his 5 and nick Wimbledon, Montreal, Cincy, USO and TMC? Or will ANO take one or more off the pair of them?

Can Blake and Davydenko successfully defend their 5?
Davydenko's TMS Paris could go for starters, and Canas floating around the clay draw might lead to upsets.

It's not just about who will win the most, when you think what has to be done to defend them.

Yes, only Nadal could stop Federer from winning the most titles in a season at the moment, and as we see Nadal is not in the same form off clay he was in 2005, so that's unlikely.

And yes, Federer won't be the leading title winner every year, but he will this year. As for cutting the schedule, does it matter?

If Federer plays 15 tournaments, he'll still win at least 10 of them (and that's a conservative estimate), and if Davydenko plays 35 tournaments he won't surpass him, will he?

I think your overestimating Federer`s ability to maintain his rate of winning 10+ tourneys per year & averaging 5-losses per year;)

Federer`s last 3-years have been the best streak in tennis history & I`m sure even he isn`t confident of keeping up these numbers:

2004: 11-titles & 6-losses
2005: 11-titles & 4-losses
2006: 12-titles & 5-losses
...
2007: 6-9 titles & 7-10 losses...[my prediction anyway].

Well, sure if a player plays a bunch of MM events, like Blake did last year and Nadal the previous year, then someone could win 6 or 7 titles but I just dont see it happening.
Now lets take a look at the players that you believe have a good chance of doing this.
Well Nadal could conceivably win 5+ titles, but given his current form, it seems highly unlikey.
Safin hasn't won 5 titles or more since 2000, Hewit has won just two titles the last two years, and Roddick hasn't won 5+ titles since 2003.
Trust me on this one, Federer winning the most titles this year is about as safe a bet out there; besides him winning Wimbledon again this year.

Even if Federer has an off year by his standards(and based on the way he played down under, that doesn't seem too likely), and only wins 6-9 tournements he's still the clear favorite to end up with the most titles. Its just simple logic, thats all. ;)

Oh yeah I`m not disagreeing with you Fedex..

Obviously Federer has been totally dominant the past 3-years & on recent form there`s no reason to suspect 2007 will be any different;)
...
...
However looking at the history of dominant #1 players it`s clear to see that many of them peak for a few years & have 10+ title winning years & then begin to lose motivation in MM events &/or get injured
...
Anyway most of the greats in the Open era:

Connors
Vilas
Borg
McEnroe
Wilander
Lendl
Agassi
Sampras...
ETC.. have followed this path~> whereby they simply don`t win as many titles after have successive peak years or in the 2nd half of their career;)

At some point Federer won`t be able to sustain these gruelling years where he`s playing close to 100 matches & winning 11-12 titles..

2007 may be another banner year & 2008 also~>> but I`m pretty sure FED`s 10+ title winning years are coming to an end soon..

i don't see federer slowing down any, and he still likes holding up the trophy on the weekend. even if he only played 15 events, i'd see him winning 10 easily. nobody's beating him lately.

nadal seems to be slumping, he may come in second with 5 or 6 titles or something. i don't see federer going that low.

I see little reason to suggest why he won't. Nadal is not as his best at the moment, Roddick can't touch Federer, Nalbandian liable to be his usual self, Safin likewise, who is going to stop Federer? Davydenko? Ljubicic? I think not.

Next year and the year after, possibly some of the younger guns will really start to test him, but not right now.

Federer`s last 3-years have been the best streak in tennis history & I`m sure even he isn`t confident of keeping up these numbers:

Why wouldn't he be confident of keeping up those numbers? His only problems are on clay with Nadal, everywhere else he is well ahead of all the players currently.

2007: 6-9 titles & 7-10 losses[/COLOR]...[my prediction anyway]

I don't know how many titles he will win, whether it will be 8 or 9 or into double figures, but your question was who will win the most titles in 2007. And the answer will be Federer.

I like your signature. Was it said during the AO this year?

I dont see FEd coming down for quite some time. Its not just about his fitness, he is purely here for the game and nothing else. Which is why his performances come sans the emotional exercise. To me, Fed falling to the court in the AO after winning the cup, was really dry. For the way he plays, he really doesn't need to do that.

Comparatively, I could actually sense both joy and relief in Rafa against when he won against Murray. I think everytime he falls after a match, he really means it. The relief, the glory...:devil:

Fed will have 2-4 slams this year...
He'll also get about 4 TMS
He'll get Halle, Basel, Tokyo, Dubai
+ TMC

Nobody else will get that many...

Federer is still much to dominant, the question you pose will be a bit more interesting in a few years time. But right now Federer is still improving at an alarming rate so he won't be slowing down.

What's with the title? It's the 1st of April, nobody has more than two titles this year yet. How can you say 'Djokovic to break Fed's 4 year reign'. Anyway, in a few months time Nadal will probably lead the title race and then I'm sure you will say it is him to win the most by the end of the year. Stop trying ti second guess everything and just wait to see what happens.

If you noticed I put two question marks at the end of the title to phrase it as a question/possibility???;)

Of course Federer is still the most likely to win the most titles again this year, but Djokovic has made an excellent start to the year & if things continue to go his way there is a chance that he may break Fed`s 4-year reign;) .. That`s all I was saying mate:cool:

I do understand that but I still think it's a little stupid to phrase it in that manner and include the exlamation mark stating it as if it is some crazy revelation which has shcoked the world. As I said, there is no need for any speculation about it at this point as we simply don't know.

Roddick could still win Queens (Which he did from 2003-2005) and at least one of the US hardcourt tournaments this summer. I don't know if he can defend Cincinatti but he might be able to.

Oh, and he lost in the Semis at IW to Nadal.

Nice post, Cmon Aussie! :yeah:
Don't let the trolls dissuade you from making sense.
I do think Rafa has at least 4-5 more titles in him this year, and would love to see him stack more on hard courts, and the US Open. Maybe Rafa will get 8-10 titles this season. Fed on the other hand might stack up to 10. I would love to see RAfa do well in Montreal, Cincinatti, Paris, Beijing, Shanghai, Madrid, and if he wins even two-three of these, it would be great.

I also hope RAfa plays carpet this year.

Yeah RAFA for sure has at atleast a few more titles in him for the rest of the 07 season;)
Also I sense another big win coming his way~~ a non-clay Slam perhaps:angel:

>>FED`s not quite as dominant this year so I don`t think he`ll be able to win his usual 10-12 titles per year..

Crazy that Davydenko is #5 on this years race not only without a title but without even reaching a final.

He has the big results where it matters though, QF, SF and R4 in this years slams as well as two SF's in AMS events and a couple of QF's too.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of the race. Here's why I still don't think Hewitt will be #10 before next years AO. he is #18 in the race even after a great week. He has to outperform at least 8 of those above him and some of them by a big margin to get there quickly.

He will be #10 or better post AO though, assuming injury's don't hit him.

Thanks for your thoughts Stebs:cool:
...Yes you may well be correct about Hewitt & when he cracks Top-10 [after AO next year] again;) .

However Llegs is not as far away from the Top-10 as you suggest~~ lets break it down:
Current Rankings of ATP Race:
1 Rafael Nadal 982
2 Roger Federer 971
3 Novak Djokovic 662
4 Andy Roddick 416
5 Nikolay Davydenko 395
6 Fernando Gonzalez 295
7 David Ferrer 292
8 Ivan Ljubicic 288
9 Tommy Robredo 277
10 Mikhail Youzhny 274
11 Tommy Haas 266
12 Carlos Moya 265
13 James Blake 262
14 Tomas Berdych 260
15 Richard Gasquet 259
16 Guillermo Canas 258
17 Marcos Baghdatis 257
18 Lleyton Hewitt 249
19 Juan Carlos Ferrero 236
20 Juan Ignacio Chela 229


***As you can see although Hewitt`s in 18th position in the 2007 Race Rankings- he`s only a mere 25pts behind currend #10 Youzhny;)
-Hewitt`s had some close calls against the Triopoly/Trinity recently & only needed one breakthrough against them to be Top-10 again;)
eg.
Cincy SF: Fed def Llegs 6-3 6-7 7-6
~if Hewitt could have won this match he`d be guaranteed a minimum 25pts [assuming he lost the final to Blake] & then he`s automatically Top-10 again!!

Wimbledon Rd.16: Djoko def Llegs 7-6 7-6 4-6 7-6
~if Hewitt could have taken his multiple set points in the 1st set & served out the 4th set [B]then the QF points would have guaranteed him another 20pts!!

Hamburg SF: Rafa def Llegs 2-6 6-3 7-5
~if Hewitt could have taken his bps [he had more than Rafa] in the 3rd set then he`d have be guaranteed another 25pts [again automatically Top-10] for reaching the final!!


Basically Hewitt`s efforts have been thwarted in the last few big tournys only by the Top-3 in the World & Llegs own inability to take advantage of the opportunities he created:sad:
Otherwise he`d be Top-10 again [just winning one of the those 3 matches I explained];)

You make a very good point here Cmon and yes that section of the race is very close. I didn't really mean that he was too far away points wise, merely that it is not the likeliest option because he won't play one of the remaining AMS events and his results are unlikely to far outstrip all of the 8 players between him and the top 10 in the two big events he does play.

His chances are far from zero but it probably would take a victory over one of what you call the tripology to reach those heights that fast.

Thanks for the update. But you will have to adjust the list once again - to put Fed on top once he beats Rafa at the US Open (assuming Fed and Nadal figure in the Finals), in which case Roger would have a record of 6 titles, 4 finals, and 3 Slams, against Rafa's 6 titles, 3 finals, and 1 Slam. Nice list.

*NOLE to win 5-titles [+Paris]
*Blake to win 4-titles [+2 MM]

I would say it is very unlikely. To win four of Tokyo, Madrid, Basel, Paris, TMC would be a phenomenal effort.

I would give the following possibilities and probablities assuming he is fit for the next few months:

8 titles - 40%
7 titles - 20%
9 titles - 20%
10 titles - 10%
6 titles - 7.5%
11 titles - 2.5%

Funny how 8 is a big step down from last year but in the last 7 years no other #1 has had a higher total than 7.

maybe over the next few years FED will be less concerned with winning so many titles & simply be happy to win the biggest events;)
as he gets older he probably realizes there`s no point peaking for Indian Wells, Miami etc.. but rather the legacy can only be furthered with more slam wins;)

2007 is still a phenomenal year:devil: :
Rogi wins 4/5 most important events & finalist @ the fifth:worship:
AO - Won
FO - Finalist
Wimby - Won
USO - Won
TMC - Won
