How will federer's' career end?

Basically if you would win 1 million dollars but you could only pick 1 option out of the 3:



I would pick the wins more than 1 slams and win my million bucks


Fed has a great shot for the next 8 slams which will take him to the end of being 31 years old by the 8th slam. I see no contenders past nole and rafa and I feel federer has adjusted to tsonga's serve well as to make it unlikely to ever be beaten at wimbledon again by tsonga . Based just on the probability nole/rafa are injured/decline further over the next 8 slams will get federer at the bare minimum 1 slam. Look how many slams nadal has missed/injured recently french 09, wim 09, ao 2010, ao 2011... Look nadal is getting older so logic says he will only get more injured based on how he can't really change his grinding game. Nole's health is coming into question as well he has also retired a lot even in slams i believe. So with this type of problem occurring to either nole or rafa where fed may have to beat neither or just 1 to get to or win the slam seems highly likely. Oh let's not forget about consistency. Nole and Rafa still have to keep gettting to the semi's and if they falter even more likely federer wins. Lets forget that federer has the game to beat both at a slam for a moment.

Just looking at the chances that over the next 8 slams nole/rafa will be not injured/withdrawn from at least one slam, consistent enough to make at least the next 8 semi's in a row at slams( after feds 23 straight the next one is 10 then 6 by lendl), be at a high enough level every time they meet fed to beat him on every surface.
I think if you consider these factors saying fed will only get 1 more slam isn't all that crazy. But anyways back to the prediction thats why I would put more than 1 slam by the time he retires.

Doesn't win a slam again.

He only made this year's RG final because lets be honest, most of the field sucks on clay. On grass and hard there are simply better players now too.

It will end as the tennis GOAT?

Probably wins 1,2 or 3 more slams. but I don't think he will quit after a slam triumph a la Sampras. probably ends it in Basle after he can't make the WTF for the first time(Might even throw in a gigantic pizza party for whole the crowd+ballboys or something:).

In the last GS he had matchpoint against the eventual winner in the semi. The gap isn't that big.

I'm pretty sure he'll win one more.
But i'm not sure about more than one. Time will tell.
I really hope so... He has the tennis.
He's the only offensive player in the top 5, the only player with a one-hander backhand, the only "multi-styles", well deserved to be the best.

Oh old Wodgie will quietly walk off into the sunset.. Doubt he ends it on a slam win though. Since its possible he may never win one again unless he does it next year.. The rest of the field will slowly begin to catch up here soon..

He'll retire as being one of the all time greats. A bit questionable legacy due to his mental breakdown against the legit challengers (Nole, Nadal etc) and all the pidgeons that came before but he has an all time great career. No shame in that.

Hopefully the Fards leave with him. But I'm sure they stick around trying to overhype and overrate his legacy more then it really was.

I can see Federer folding like tinfoil against Nadal smudging his legacy somewhat but against Novak? They split their last ten meetings and he still has a winning H2H against Novak. And who are the other "etc legit challengers"?

And he will retire in 2013.

He'll win another slam. Eventually his QF streak will fall when he gets surprised by someone in the 3rd round. From there he'll continue playing, reach some QF, SF, maybe a final if he's lucky during 2013 (slamless again like 2011), lose another 3rd round match at a slam in the following year, go to the QFs of some other slams, then eventually enter the following two years slamless, and retire at the age of 34 or 35. Something of this nature I think will happen. And when it does, he'll probably retire with his last slam match being a QF to some top 8-10 player.

If federer manages a way to win the AO 2012 his chances for wimbledon and US open go way up due to his arrogant confidence returning to its accustomed place while at the same time perhaps serving as a downer to the others in the top 4. The us open shifting to what looks like a monday 5pm finals will serve federer a much better chance than if it had stayed sat-sun format.


Again I believe AO 2012 is the key here as if fed can somehow get than #2 ranking and then have nadal be paired with djoker in slams bc of ITF wanting the highest grossing finals (its a business afterall) and not 1 sided beat downs as they saw enough of this year with nole-rafa that will def be something to watch unfold. Roger winning AO 2012 unlocks the other slams for him even dare I say FO 2012 if rafa has nole in his way.

think he will win 1 more slam and shortly after call his retirement. he's a smart guy and knows how beautiful it is to walk away when you still have all the respect and renown in the world. and he knows his boundaries.

17 certifies his legacy and realistically how many more than 1 more could he win? 2, 3 tops? worth slugging it around and losing the ranking over the next few years so that he can peak periodically at Grand Slams?

1 slam and then walk a way. I have a strong feeling but we'll see

Also, Mardy is going to win his first....

exactly. Truth is he was the 2nd best man in the AO, probably the best man in RG (which he lost because of match up issues), also the best man in Wimbledon (Tsonga was better on that day but then vanished away, on the whole tournament Roger was by far the best and most consistent), and also in the US open where he chocked but was far superior to his foes.:cool:
As we can see, wimbledon and the US open were his if not for some horrendous bad luck. AO he lost legitimately and RG he really should have won, he was the most dminating player of the draw, he just got unlucky again.:sad:
So the question I ask is: what's stopping him from winning slams in 2012? Flat out Nadull, semi injured and unconfident djokovic? Murray? Don't make me laugh!:lol::lol::lol:

I think he still has 2 slams left in him. One for sure, as there is no reason why a player as great as him can't win at least one even at this stage of his career. He has certainly been very close in a couple matches since he last won Australia, so I don't see why he can't get a good draw and pick up a title or two.

it will end with a himper. He will keep playing long time to try and get back becaue he will be deluded to think he can still keep winning events. he will be wrong

How exactly was he robbed? Did somebody put a gun to his head to force him to waste a second match point? And then double-fault a crucial game away? And then get broken for a second time?

If he thinks he was robbed, then he'll never win another slam, that's for sure. You cannot change what you don't acknowledge. If Roger acknowledges that his anger, his sense of entitlement and his lack of respect for his opponent cost him a match and probably a Grand Slam title, then he'll have a chance to win another slam. Otherwise I don't see him winning another slam, tennis is very mental, especially during slams.

I think that he will give himself basically a dead line for the 2013/2014 season. He will retire at the end of 2014 if he doesn't win another slam if he wins one any time during 2013 or 2014 (except maybe AO cause its at the start of the year) he will retire after that :shrug: I would be tipping on the second option.

Robin Soderling has mono, Mario Ancic had mono, Hugh Laurie had mono and had to stop being an athlete altogether, mono will force any professional athlete to stop playing from 3 to 18 months depending on the severity of the case. Roger Federer didn't stop playing at all in 2008: he played AO, Dubai, IW, ... his normal tournaments. Mono was an excuse because he lost to Djokovic in the Australian Open and he wanted to minimise his victory, as always.

Or maybe he had a cold and he thought it was mono. Or maybe he had a really, really mild case of mono. It lasted 3 days or so. Didn't prevent him from using it as an excuse for his losses, with the name 'mono', to have enough impact. :devil:

LOL shut up. Are you familiar with the concept of weak and strong immune systems? Or the concept of how our bodies can react differenly to things? Do you know that some people actually die of having mono? By your reasoning anyone who says he's had mono but didn't die would actually be lying about having it and using it as an excuse.

Seriously, you and some of your fellow Noletards are just looking ridiculous now. Sure, he kept playing in 2008, but his results sucked until the US Open. Are you saying that mono had nothing to do with it? You don't know much about how a professional athlete's health is very, very important to him, do you? Because if you did, you wouldn't have posted such a post. Just because he didn't pull out of tournaments or skip tournaments doesn't mean that he wasn't adversely affected. Come on, this is common sense.

And seriously? A Djokovic fan shouldn't be questioning other players' illnesses and dissing the said players for using illness/injury as an "excuse" for his losses.

:confused: Federer was positively tested on mono, I don't think he would lie about that. So I think he has had mono. Every body deals different with mono, but it't safe to assume Federer didn't feel physically at his best for a at least a month. Which affected his training at an important training blok for him.

fed's mono was quite overblown so excuses can be made, we all know his highness is not so gracious when losing. also, for the sake of truth, we need to mention that gluten-saturated nole spanked "mono" fed at the AO 2008.

nole is probably only guy who needs a week to recover from chronic shoulder problems . fools like ivanisevic and haas went on surgery . they just needed to take a week off and they would be able for 7 best of 5 sets matches in two week time . just 3 weeks before he won US he wasn't able to play 3 more games. and than for the rest of season shoulder was mainly bad . he is the only guy who can peak his health. that's why nole is my hero. ajde

:confused: Federer was positively tested on mono, I don't think he would lie about that. So I think he has had mono. Every body deals different with mono, but it't safe to assume Federer didn't feel physically at his best for a at least a month. Which affected his training at an important training blok for him.


And that one month which "affected his training" was alrady so much for the supposed "GOAT" that it threw him off for more than half a season? Is that what you are saying? :)

No offense, but I think it's safe to say that Fed had a mild case of mono which didn't affect hin much. He stepped on the court when he had mono (or not) so he felt fit enough to play. No excuses. :)

Thank you very much for your comments, I'm glad I'm making an impact. :) :cool:

I'm not defending Novak's history of retirements (although 2.6% is not as high as other players, as I've mentioned in previous posts). But Novak is a very gracious loser who always has a nice gesture for his conqueror and kind words in his presser. At least give him that. :)

More to the point: why are we talking about Novak in a Federer thread? :confused:

Even if you lose graciously, refusing to give your opponent a proper win on the basis of a "sore throat" is not a good mark of sportsmanship.

And people bring up Federer on the thread where Soderling wouldn't join AO... why don't you go complain there? This is GM anyway, we can bring up any players we want.

If Agassi was a real threat in late 35, with his tough-for-body style, what makes you sure that Federer has only year or two to shine on grandslam again ?

Nadal is still Nadal, but years are counting on his body quicker than on Roger´s. Nole the same. Roger will able to beat Murray in 2014, too.

Don´t be so narrow-minded, folks.

Olderer was always a vulture who feasted on off form players. I don't see why he can't do this until mid-30's to win a couple of more clown slams to inflate his "legacy"

Newcombe said recently he thinks Federer can profit next year from Djokovic and Nadal having battered themselves this year. Would be hilarious if 31 year old Federer wins 2 slams in 2012 while the younger Nadal and Djokovic only win one slam each next year. :lol: Connors' 1982 comes to mind.

To answer the question, while Nadullita is crying into the clay after a 1, 3 & 0 thrashing in the French Open final, the heavens will open & a golden ladder descend, which Federer will climb while applauding the gracious Parisian crowd.

Robin Soderling has mono, Mario Ancic had mono, Hugh Laurie had mono and had to stop being an athlete altogether, mono will force any professional athlete to stop playing from 3 to 18 months depending on the severity of the case. Roger Federer didn't stop playing at all in 2008: he played AO, Dubai, IW, ... his normal tournaments. Mono was an excuse because he lost to Djokovic in the Australian Open and he wanted to minimise his victory, as always.

Or maybe he had a cold and he thought it was mono. Or maybe he had a really, really mild case of mono. It lasted 3 days or so. Didn't prevent him from using it as an excuse for his losses, with the name 'mono', to have enough impact. :devil:

Cannot have it both ways.

If you say Federer did not have mono in 2008 can we also say Djokovic did not lose a single match owing to injury in 2011 seems fair.
