I voted for none of them. In fact, I would not be at all surprised if he never lost another match in his career, except to Rafa on clay.

I mean the tournament which his still ongoing undefeated run (now 25) would end...

:lol:

Eh, the most likely are the indoor Masters, I think. Honestly, after the US Open, as long as he wins the Davis Cup matches against Britain (if he loses... :eek: ), I don't really care if he wins or loses. I'm hoping for Safin and Gasquet to get some good performances, mainly.

Surprisingly, his indoor carpet record is not so good. He has lost in 2003 to some people ranked quite a bit lower, and then not played last year.

Maybe Indoor is the most chance?

Davis Cup tie against England will be played on clay.

I can see him passing up on Thailand and Basel in which case he could go unbeaten for the rest of the year.

not really.. his dominance hadn't really kicked off in 2003. since then (and I could be wrong) I think he's only lost once in an indoor to Henman in the QFs of Rotterdam last year? he did win it this year.

Well the first option is out of the question, as if you asked Andy Murray about England's tie with the Swiss he'd give you a slap!

i would need to see his real schedule for the end of this year first, because he is likely to pull out of 2 events maybe more, but he'll porbably lose a match or more as his goals are done for this season and he'll be focusing on the aussie. i would love to see him defend mc, but i wont be to disapointed as hes won 2 slams this year so iam very very very happy. wel done rog

Hm, I don't know. He said that TMC was his main goal after he won Wimbledon, and I don't think he will want to slow down now that he also won the US Open. His confidence must be high enough and the pressure is almost gone.

I think he could eventually lose in one of those tournaments and certainly will if he plays all of them. I just hope it's not in one of the TMS or TMC. :p

I agree with whoever said that he might lose in the DC doubles match. :p Then again, it's Great Britain so maybe not. :p

Well Murray and Sherwood look a decent little pair and beat Erlich/Ram so maybe we have a chance. Don't forget doubles is a different kettle of fish and Fed is not the same on it as he is singles.

His goal remains. To win his home tournament Basel which he hasn't done yet.

i think nadal will take madrid

i would like to see all this year's TMS go to only nadal and fed. :p

after fed takes basel, he'll probably let it pass next year. just like gstaad.

he just wants to win at home once to prove a point or something i guess.

He's not going to lose to anybody in DC. I don't think he will play Thailand but I thought that last year too. I see him playing Madrid, Basel, skipping Paris and the playing the TMC. Or maybe Basel, Paris, and then the TMC. He might lose 1 or 2 matches in there.

I do think that he will be relaxed and play with relatively little pressure. That's when he plays his best. I do think he wants to have at least a 200 point margin in the race when all is said and done to protect his #1 ranking early next season when he has a TON of points to defend.

He'll fall in Shanghai.

Rafa = Fed Killa

Madrid. Home court adv for Nadal will make the diff.
