At what point does Fed's QF streak become more impressive than SF streak?

Fed has now made the quarters or better at 32 straight slams (8 full calendar years). He also made 23 straight SF before losing to Soderling in the QF of the 2010 french. How many more QFs does fed have to reach so that this streak becomes more impressive than SF streak? I would say the streak needs to hit at least 36.

Hard to say. 108? like the number of masters needed to be better than one GS?

I don't think it can be as impressive, as SF is really better than QF : to reach QF, you only meet players ranked 13 and more if you're ranked in the top-4 like Fed.

And 23 SFs in a row is really huge :eek:

The second one for QF has 27 of them : Connors, who didn't play the Australian open and sometimes couldn't play Roland-Garros then did it on a longer period of time, which makes it all the more impressive :eek:

Whereas for SF, the second one after Fed is also Connors but with ... only 11 semifinals, which means less than half of Fed's.

Anyway, for me, the most impressive from Fed was the 18 finals in 19 grand slams :clap2:

It's like comparing the amount of gold medals won with the amount of silver or bronze medals won.

Even if the latter hugely outnumber the former, one is an indication of excellence and consistency at a higher level. It's incomparable.

Instead of comparing these two records against each other, we should take them together to show Federer's consistent brilliance.

If he reaches every slam QF between here and Wimby 2014 -- which would be nine more -- that would be an entire decade of consecutive grand slam quarter final appearances. I doubt he will do it... but if he does, that would top any longevity record. :)

I'd say it'd be more impressive if it reaches 46, because that's then the same number of points as 23 straight SFs. So 40-ish.

The semi-final record is absolutely unbelievable, his greatest ever record :worship:

That SF streak is probably most impressive of his records, i mean that SF streak i believe nobody will ever came close to that, QF is good, even if he will make 35-40, but QF is QF, SF is totally different - you play 5-8 in QF , in R4 you play 13-16 that´s huge difference i think there is no QF streak for Federer that can potentialy surpass that amazing SF streak.

Different.

Like how many weeks at no1 is more impressive than 16 slams? There is no real answer. Or is Messi more impressive than Federer if you look at pure talent?

really can't believe how retarded you are. 80% of nadal's draws at slams or masters 1000 tournaments till semis not qf look like this year Fed's FO draw. from AO 2010 Fed had surely the hardest draws from big 3 and you whine like little pussy first time he gets easier one till QF . now he has to play delpo while piggy plays allmugro

What was Rafa's last draw at the AO, wasn't it Super Sayin Berdych-GOAT- #1 and nemesis Djokovic?

At 50 maybe. Definetly at 57 which I belive is Ferreira's record number of straight GS appearances (which Federer probably is going to beat soon).

Ofcourse the prospect of Federer reaching consecutive RG quaterfinals at 34-35 is highly unrealistic, he already struggled this year with a draw made up in heaven.

this record isnt impressive according for me ,the top players play their first real test only in the quarters .All this streak shows is he is good in all the surfaces ,he hasnt been injured much and on a bad day he is still good enough to get the job done .I mean even Djokovic has like 10 or 11 while Nadal has 9 or 10 . The semi is easly much more important and can never get equaled by this .

Connors has what I believe to be the most impressive streak, 34 QFs in 35 appearances, losing only once in the 4th round. Federer has 32 straight and 33 QFs in 34 appearances. He has a chance to tie Connors in Wimbledon.

Probably the most impressive longevity record, IMO. Lendl went 40 without losing in the first round, so Roger's not that far off from owning all the consecutive wins in X round, aside from the hardest one, Lavers. :)

16 > 10 > 23 > 32.

Imo the 18 of 19 slam finals tops the semis streak. Roger reached all the finals of slams from Wimbledon 2005 to AO 2010 with the exception of 2008 AO. That's unprecedented consistency at the highest level.

Says the one who says people don't even try to play well against Nadal :hatoff:

But I think I can get to the third round maybe, if I can avoid the horror draw :unsure: should go one better than next year.

the SF streak is the most impressive record in tennis and the QF streak will never break it. It's in the QF you meet the dangerous guys, guys that can actually knock top3s out. (unless your uncle rigged the draw and you get boyfriends and slaves but normally it's like that)

Still if Federer manages 10 full years of consecutive QFs it would be insane. So about 8 more and it's another extremely special record. But I don't think Fed lasts 8 more

Federer will probably be knocked out before a QF soon enough, he's just starting to lose his consistency. But he can play amazingly well at times, I just wished he had more mental strength against Nadull because clearly Federer is the most technically gifted Player of all time.

Yep. He has the game to beat Nadal in every surface, but his head when facing his nemesis :facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:

He just needs to bag one more GS tittle and the semi, as well as QF thing won't matter anymore.

In any case, if he's still doing all the quarters at 35, now that would be quite impressive i think.

So perhaps the 50 mark might rank right up there with the SFs.

But one is a sign of class+regularity (SFs), the other would be class+longevity and these are 2 different things.

Kinda comparing Connors number of tittles with Roger's number of slams.

And Nole is an incredibly talented player as well, with lots more mental strength than Roger.
