1. 3 Slam Titles in a year since wilander in 1988.
2. First Ever to win first 4 career Slam Finals.
3. First to win three consecutive titles, each on
diferent surfaces (Wimbledon,GStaad and Toronto)
since Borg 1974.

4. First to win 2 Titles on three different surfaces in a year since
McEnroe 1984)

5. 24 matches unbeaten win streak on grass, second only to borg(41).

6. Fastest to qualify for year end Master's cup ever.

7. Largest Gap between no 1 and no 2 player in ATP points
(around 3000 points with this win.) I am not quite sure
about it, correct me If I am wrong.

8. Fastest 50 wins in a year since Lendl in 19??.

9. Bagelling in two sets in the final of USOpen final since 1884.

10. Last 1st seed to win USOpen since 1996, sampras.

11. Levelled 3 TMS titles in a season, could break it in rest of
season( 2 more TMS left to play).

Any Additions?

No, I don't think so. You could add 2005 French Open champ to that growing list if he does indeed win it.

I love him dominating... but it makes me wonder when it's going to go downhill, if ever :(

I myself would've preferred a longer match...but of course it's all gone right for all your Federer fans hasn't it.

I hope he keeps dominating everything, at least until his 15th GS title and The Longest #1. I know it's a bit out of reality because new talents are "released" everytime in tennis, but it'd be nice! But really, I don't think it'll happen... hmm, or do I?

The first player got 1000+ CR points since 2000?

Got the most ES points (6700+) at least in 10 years?

When Roger starts to experience frequent injuries, which seems highly unlikely (bad news for his rivals). I can see Roger playing (and winning) well into his thirties if he can keep injuries to a minimum.

I think Rogi will play into his early 30s too. I think he is very smart and takes time off to let his body recover and his has a nice team around him.

his dominance is almost just crazy. He truly is such a great player and he really could become the greatest player of all time.

Uhh..I don't think so Dirk. I hope your right though.

Sadly, todays athlete is growing complacent, and I fear this complacency will filter it's way into Roger's world. Under-achieving is becoming acceptable, just ask Marat. I remember hearing Hewitt say a year ago he was going to quit after a year and play aussie-rules.

The lesser talented will continue to benefit from the superior ones losing interset...Gaudio. One-hit wonders like this will appear more and more in the future.

It will not be the Grandslam or Sampras's record Roger has to contend with, it will be this creeping complacency. And that is why I fear he will not break the all-time slam record. I your right Dirk. I hope he plays into his early thirties, but I have my doubts. I smell a "slump" in 06.

You may be right. Now that he's gotten three of the four slams, he could slide into a complacency mode in 05. Let's hope not, though.

It could happen, but I think it's more likely to happen in 2006. I feel for him, it's not his nature to be a world-beater..we'll see.

I think there are a few achievements that he wants for himself, especially that FO. If he gets them in the next year or two I believe he'll get bored and move on.
