the SF GS streak won't be broken any time soon if ever ;) :p
about the GS record, same was said about Sampras and Roger broke it barely 7 years later, so everything is possible ;)

Huh, that was merely a Doubles title, no? I wouldn't call that a Golden GS, to be honest.

As for the original question: ANYTHING can happen. Nobody expected Pete's GS record to be beaten in a mere seven years, so who knows.

Federer

He's gonna retired, wait a year, and come back from retirement and get 16 GS's?

if FED manages to finish with 18, 19, 20 majors~~ nobody else will ever come close to passing him!! ***however, if he stays stuck on 15 [unlikely], then its possible his record could be broken within 20 years..

I agree with this. Federer has the chance to set a truly unbreakable record. Already I think the streak of 10 GS finals and 21 GS semifinals is very close to unbreakable.

Itís possible some of Fedís records will be broken in another era, but he has so many that I think itís close to improbable that ALL of them will be broken. The most underrated of which and most difficult to surpass is the 21 consecutive GS semi-finals, that is still on-going.

Yup. I'll be surprised if he doesn't end up with at least 19 at the end of his career. As long as he continues to be passionate about the game there's no reason he shouldn't end up with at least 19 or 20, and another disconcerting thing for the opposition is that he still has time and youth on his side.

The answer you're looking for is Andy Murray or no one.

Wow you're really optimistic. Age is a big factor let's remember and his competition keeps getting more fierce. They only can get better. ;)

Age is obviously a factor but not necessarily a big one.

Federer will never regain the tournament-winning consistency he had between 2004 to 2007, but he’s still able to peak for the slams and is still adding to his game. His economical style of tennis will mean longevity. Federer’s rock-solid serve will ensure he’ll continue to remain a formidable player even though he’s slower and his side to side movement is not what it once was.

28 is still very young, and if you remember, Sampras at that age played some of his best ever tennis.

Federer’s competition has made impressive strides, but he has adjusted to them as he proved in last year’s USO. Nadal will always have the upperhand over the Swiss, but Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro haven’t shown they can really stay with Federer in the majors yet.
