Federer vs the rest of top 20!

09-10-2004, 04:41 PM
Take a look at this, just another proof of Federer's historical year, possibly no other player in the history of the game has done anything like this, maybe what Laver did in another era is the only comparable achievment.

He can play on grass, clay and hard court and has won at least 2 on each thisyear which he is alone together with Mcenroe. He can't loose against top 20 players, hasn't lost one match this year against a top 20 player except Henman. He can't loose once he reaches the semifinals, the 10 last time he reached the semifinals he won the tournament. He has beaten every player on top 10 at least once since Houston when he just crushed all players who he previously had problems with, take a look at this:

Federer vs nr2 Roddick:

7-6(2) 6-2
4-6 7-5 7-6(3) 6-4
7-5 6-3

Federer vs nr3 Coria:

4-6 6-4 6-2 6-3
(Clay! Destroyed the 34 straight victories for Coria)

Federer vs nr4 Moya:

6-4 6-3 (Clay!!)

Federer vs nr5 Hewitt:

4-6 6-3 6-0 6-4
6-0 6-4
6-1 6-7(1) 6-0 6-4

Federer vs nr6 Henman:

6-3 6-3

Federer vs nr7 Andre agassi:

6-7(3) 6-3 7-6(7)
6-3 6-0 6-4
4-6 6-3 6-4
6-3 2-6 7-5 3-6 6-3

Federer vs nr8 Ferrero:

6-3 6-1
6-4 6-1 6-4

Federer vs nr9 Nalbandian:

6-3 6-0
7-5 6-4 5-7 6-3

federer vs nr10 Gaston Gaudio

6-1 5-7 6-4

Federer vs nr13 Grosjean:

6-2 6-3 7-6(6)

Federer vs nr14 Safin:

7-6(3) 6-4 6-2
7-6(2) 7-6(4)

Federer vs nr16 Gonzalez

6-3 6-2
7-5 6-1

Federer vs nr17 Chela

6-2 6-1

Federer vs nr18 PAvel

6-3 6-2 7-5
7-6(2) 7-5
6-3 6-3
6-1 6-1
US open w.o

Federer vs 19 Tommy Robredo

6-3 6-4

Federer vs nr20 Kiefer

6-3 6-4 7-6(6)

Federer vs rest of top 20:

67-11 in sets

Has anyone ever acomplished this in the history of tennis? Too bad he loosed against Tim Henman, 32-0 would be more impressive. It is official that only bad players can beat Federer, the secret lies in making him bored with easy balls to work with.

I think many of you refuse to aknowledge Federer is just so much more impressive and dominant than Sampras has ever been, right now he is going to win 3 grand slams something Sampras never did in his career.

The only thing left to do for Federer is to win the french open and a real grand slam next year. Then he will by the age of 24 years be the greatest player of all time.

Amazing record :worship:

Go Rogi :bigclap:

09-10-2004, 04:56 PM
Awesome. That's just ridiculous.

09-10-2004, 05:04 PM
Simply Amazing !!! :worship:

Yes, it's a great record. As a matter of interest, when are you compiling the results from - since TMC last year? If you do the last 12 months it doesn't look quite as impressive since you'd need to add losses to Hewitt, Ferrero, and Henman again.
Edit: oops, just reread your original post and see you mention since TMC so ignore that ;)

By the way, I wouldn't dare to assume Federer is going to beat Henman tomorrow or Hewitt (even Johansson) on Sunday, let alone win a calendar year Grand Slam next year.

Wow! These statistics really put Roger Federer's dominance into perspective.

09-10-2004, 05:23 PM
Thanks for compiling those - Roger is the best by far :worship: and still manages to be a nice guy too!

Yes Ninja is cold and cruel on the court but sweet and kind off the court Rosie.

I know Dirk :) He's one of the nicest guys on the ATP Tour that I've ever met, and over the years I've met most of them!

I take them from Houston as in Houston the unbeatable Federer was born. He dealt with his problem against Agassi, NAbaldian and Ferrero in that tournament. The game he have been dominating the world with started here, so I see it as a turning point in his career. Before he was only a great grass player with alot of problems against great base liners like Agassi, Nabaldian, Hewitt and Ferrero, after he was just unbeatable on all surfaces.

09-10-2004, 05:52 PM
Yes, Roger has had an amazing year, but makro, don't pretend to know what Roger will accomplish for the rest of the tournament.

"He can't lose before the SF?" Oh really? We have a saying where I come from "There's no such thing as can't."

Don't get ahead of yourself. Fed fans want him to be his best and to accomplish as much as he possibly can but personally, other players deserve respect for their games because I'm sure Roger would agree that they didn't get where they are by luck, just like he didn't get where he is by luck.

I take particular umbrage when the commentators behave like there's only one player on the court: the American, and in all fairness to Tim, who has an excellent record against Roger, he has as much chance of beating Roger as Roger does of beating him. And if he gets past Tim, the same in the final. Everybody wants to win and as long as they both show up on court that day, it's anyone's match.

Please, have some respect for the other players because I would like the same for Roger.

That's a very impressive record.

I would still say that McEnroe's 1984 (82-3) is more impressive, but I don't think ANYONE will ever match that...

09-10-2004, 06:02 PM
The only thing left to do for Federer is to win the french open and a real grand slam next year. Then he will by the age of 24 years be the greatest player of all time.

:) He would be one of the greatest, for sure. But he would still have to contend with the fact that Laver won the real Grand Slam TWICE. ;)

09-10-2004, 06:16 PM
Cmon, tennis is much more competitie than the day Laver won his 2nd real grandslam.

09-11-2004, 01:18 AM
nice stats. congrats to Federer. :worship:

09-11-2004, 01:22 AM
Hewitt will give him the 2nd loss

09-11-2004, 01:34 AM
:worship: :worship:

All I can say is wow. He is absolutely no doubt the best on tour right now and very much possibly in the next few years to come. hat amazes me so much about him is his ability of winning match after every match, even when not playing his best (he still punishes the other guy across from him ;) ). He is definitely the guy to compare to Sampras and possibly surpass him. ;)

09-11-2004, 02:57 AM
Hewitt will give him the 2nd loss
Pffft, yeah right. Roger will crush him comprehensivly again, like he's done all year. I'm more interested to see if Hewitt can break his 'a bagel a match' streak, much less actually beating Federer.

09-11-2004, 03:39 AM
Feliz Cumpleanos!

09-11-2004, 07:11 AM
Rogi has an excellent shot at this title now that my andy is out of the pic grr.... I wanted to see a rogi-andy final but shit happens and at least one of them is still there so go rogi!!

09-12-2004, 08:33 AM
Great record :D

09-12-2004, 08:53 AM
Yes, no doubt it's amazing... and bad or, at least, boring for the game, but, oh well, I guess he deserves it if he can win all these matches, so I can only congratulate Fed (and hope next year it's gonna change, if it happens in favour of Ferrero, even better ;))

09-12-2004, 09:31 AM
LOL @ "It is official that only bad players can beat Federer, the secret lies in making him bored with easy balls to work with"
You would start to think that it is indeed like that.
Roger is just awesome. But I still hope that Hewitt can come up with something to beat him.
