In the "hottest player" thread, a JCF fan wrote that he would vote for his fave on this poll... I wanted to have your opinion on that, just to check the overall feeling... I didn't put an "other"category, but I don't think there are so many other players able to do it anyway... ;)

No chance that anyone will do that. The bar has been raised again this year and although Fed is still better than everyone, he has lost his complete aura of invincibility. He won't play enough smaller tournaments to have a chance of more than 10 titles this year. None of the top players will play enough tournmants and the lesser players will continue to split the titles left between them.

Gaston Gaudio.....his 13 will include defence of Roland Garros, a crushing victory over Federer at Wimbledon, a stomping of Safin and Roddick at the USO, and a thrashing of the field at the Masters without the loss of a set




no, I dont think anyone will grab 10 titles this year, unless some of the top guys decide to play in plenty of smalltime tournaments

Roger Federer is also in 2005 very capable of winning more than 10 titles. Last year he won 11 titles out of 17 tournaments played :eek:
He even missed a couple of tournaments because of an injury. I see no reason why he can't do it again, he is still a lot better than everybody else. Safin is the only top player who has shown he can really hurt him and only when Roger clearly wasn't at his best.

DAMN! I couldn't see it. He was steamrolling everyone before he got to play Safin, but he wans't at his best. I'm afraid what to expect from Federer if he's at his best. Probably 6-0 6-0 wins and 6-0 6-1 6-0 wins at slams.Long live Roger Federer the best ever, the most handsome, the most intelligent player EVER!

IMO it was very clear he wasn't playing at his best (and I'm not talking about his first 5 matches), but you don't have to agree of course. The rest of this year will show if I'm right or not. If the top 10 players start beating Federer on a regular basis (not just 1 defeat in 15 months) you are proven right and I am proven wrong.

Who are you rooting for, you seem pretty negative... Roger is not God, he's not even walking on water but it's difficult to hate or to criticize him. I was reading an interview of Wilander saying that it was insane that Fed won in Thailand, small tourney, after his small Slam. And Wilander knows about small Slams. It sums up the greatness of Fed: keep winning, keep focused, be professional, but with simplicity. Such champions are rare... ;)

rwn , you have to understand that when a player plays against a good player like Marat Safin , he is more prone to make errors which is why all Federer fans think he wasn't playing at his best . Give me a break , why don't you just admit it that Federer was playing as best as he can but just lost to a better player that day .

Enough said .

I'm with you, it makes me laugh when people say that a player didn't play his best, then he lost... The nature of tennis, like boxing or martial arts, is the fight. Then, the force or greatness or whatever, is relative to the opponent's. Then it's the form and ability of the moment that count, not "average" or "already seen" form and ability.
So if Fed was runing like hell and was pushed to unforced errors and missed this match point, it was because Safin was playing out there. Plus the mental factor is so important in the game that you cannot compare an awesome Fed's game in USO finals where he wanted badly to bagel Big Mouth Hewitt for a ton of reasons, and a less beautiful one against Safin...
If a guy loses, it's because he was weaker than his opponent, as simple as that. ;)

Arts and soul , the difference is , Roger is the number 1 player and playing at his best tennis at the moment . Pete Sampras wasn't the number 1 player back then and was coming off his worst season ever . Pete was also tested in the second round of that wimby tourny in a 5 setter which is not usual for Pete . After that match , I knew in my mind that his streak was coming to an end .

I can honestly say , without being bias , that Pete wasn't playing his best tennis . In fact his best years on that surface were behind him .

Federer will win more tournies than any other players for sure but more than 10? If Safin keeps his motivation and cool (I hope so), he may win some tournies from Federer though Federer will win more of their encounters. However, I have to admit that he's the only one having a chance at least.

By the way, I don't understand why some of Federer's fans keep saying that Federer was not playing his best while Safin was in that semi. It sounds very unfair to Safin. I would say that both were not playing at their best but fought their best. If anyone of you have watched Safin's play in 2000, it is very clear that he is not at peak now. His forehand is much worse when compared to 2000 or even 2002 (confidence problem as always). Federer is an excellent player as we all know and I love to watch him play because the shots are so beautiful and amazing. But please be fair to a good player who tried so hard to win a tough match and delivered such a great match to all tennis fans.

Well, that day Safin was better, that's clear. I will admit that.
I don't agree that Federer played as well as he can play. He wasn't (in my opinion of course). I'm still convinced Roger is a better player than Marat. But maybe Safin will prove me wrong in the next couple of matches.
Last year there were also 6 players better than Federer in a match. That doesn't mean they are better players or that Federer won't win more than 10 tournaments.

Yes, Roger was playing as best as he could within his health limitation that day and lost to the better and physically stronger player in the end.

Should anyone take it seriously then? ;)

Roger may win 10+, if

1) Safin loses his head again and fire Peter
2) Hewitt has another fight with ATP and determine getting marry is more important than playing tennis

Moreover, I see Roddick is trying to improve and add dimension to his game, if he's successful, it's very unlikely Roger will win more than 10 tournaments.

There is a fan mentioned Roger only played 17 tournaments and won 11 out of them. Implying that if Roger wants to have more titles, he only needs to play more tournaments. Keep in mind that, the more you win, the less tournaments you can play. A player playing 30 tournaments but lost in 2nd or 3rd round will play less matches than a player playing 15 tournaments but reach semi or finals all the time and physically less demanding.

In my opinion I dont see this happening again, yes Federer is awesome and to me he is the best player out there regardless of his humaness, which was personified after his semi loss at the aussie open a few weeks ago. However I do believe it is very possible for him to win 6-8 titles should he keep his form of play that hes been playing with for the past 18 months. 8-10 is still possible but more than ten i highly doubt it, as many have pointed out the bar has been risen again, and everyone will be gunning against Federer.

Now the more interesting question will be who will win more than 2 masters series events this year? Or perhaps more than 3? Has anyone ever won more than 3 masters series events in one season? Maybe Agassi however i think he only won like three one year i believe 2001 or 02 where he won indian wells, ericsson and the spanish masters i forget what it was called. :worship: :worship:

Gaston is looking good for his second title of the year this week. :D He can definitely win a few more clay court titles this year. And really, I see no problem with his game on other surfaces. It is all really about confidence, and that will grow as he wins more matches, especially on grass.
.Although I hate Roger Federer with a passion, I do respect his ability and I expect 4 or 5 titles from him this year.

And as for Mariano, maybe he can win a few ITF's if he really practices hard :rolleyes: lol. Poor Zabqui. This will be his year of revival.

How you can be so mean and heartless to talk about Gaudio in this sarcastic manner? You are panished. Now you should go to "Roddick, Coria, etc, etc.." thread and read it from the begining to the end 10 times.

I put in Roddick, he is playing in all th easy tournaments with hardly any top 10 players. Any surprise why he doesn't do well in the GrandSlams? He should have gone to Rotterdam better experience. JMO

Excelent, I'd say a brilliant point!

Maybe Joachim might stand a chance of achieving this feat if he sticks to the smaller tournaments.

He has a good chance in Rotterdam, Nottingham (if he is going), and some of the smaller indoor tournaments in October. On a more serious note I'd expec him to win between 3-5 tournaments this year.

That's very true. What's up with that? Andy's schedule has been very questionable this year, imo; I'd like to hear some of the logic behind it.

Too funny, if he only keeps playing in Memphis. Maybe, but if he plays with the big guns I wouldnt count on it.

Qatar and Rotterdam gave so many ranking points and they're VERY difficult events.
Super Nalbandian lost. Hand over the
Mickey Mouse trophy to the ostrich.
Wimbledon and Halle are not easy events anymore.:tape:

These are all realistic targets for Roddick in 2005. Though too bad he is not playing Scottsdale, if he wins these in addition to San Jose he'll have his 11 titles.

Memphis, Scottsdale, Indian Wells, Miami, Houston,Washington, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Cincinatti, Montreal and the US Open.

He won't win in Scottsdale.

The desert air at night is too cold for him. It's a shame that the tournament was so inconsiderate to arrange all his matches at night. It was miserable cold and wet and he had to play 2 matches in one day because of rain delay. Yes, that's the reason he lost to Spadea last year.

Pete was number one for 6 years. Did he suddenly lose his aura after losing a slam match???? :rolleyes: I say only Federer can win 10 titles or more this year, but he would definitely have to play the indoor season in the fall this time.

Dirk

Heya The Master's Cup is not an easy event but Roger sure makes it look easy doesn't he? ;) :P Oh and if Andy had beaten Roger in 03 at Wimbledon and went on to win the title..would you disrespect his accomplishment by calling it an easy event?

Dirk
02-17-2005, 05:12 AM
Roddick is going to win 16.

Are there 16 more events in North America?

He'll win Memphis, Indian Wells, Miami, Houston,Washington, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Cincinatti, Montreal and the US Open. He probably should play Newport as well.

GWH um you might have to take out IW, Miami, Cincy, Montreal and USO because they tend to have most of the top 50 in them. Still that gives Andy 11 titles which isn't all that bad.

Federer ofcourse he's got four already and will probably win Miami as well
