Roland Garros is toughest one for him
then its little break and its Wimbledon


and another thing Olympics finish just before US Open starts.

Impossible this yr or any year for any man

There's always the after-effect after a slam where people think so and so player is so extremely dominant. Although I agree that Federer may suit the claim, it is nearly impossible for him to win The Slam.

I highly doubt it, but he is the only one who can do it this year.

No.
If he is to put much of his energy in FO, then he probably won't be well enough to win Wimby, which I guess he won't. Two weeks of break is obviously not enough for anyone to win both back to back IMO.

Nope, I won't say never but I'll say hiiiiiiighly unlikely.

It's highly unlikely, but I guess I would never say never...

A more likely event would be his joining Agassi with a career grand slam. He only needs a RG and USO title now. I think he is fully capable of it.

He can do it, but It's VERY difficult ... I will cheer for him, and I think RGarros will be a huge test for him.

It's possible, but it's too soon to say if he will.
But I hope he gives it a good shot :)

I would like it, but I don't think so. He can win Wimbledon and USO (Well, ofcourse there still are Roddick, Safin, Agassi and the others), but he won't be able to win Roland Garros (spanish and argentinian players are still better on Clay I think)

Nope....it's too much, though with his level he can do it....but honestly: No.

chenced are dim... but the chances for other players do not exist... i think by the end of his career he will have all 4 grand slams and an olympic title... but it's a tall order to do it all in one year. but many ppl thought that before he even won the aus that he would be the player to do it if there ever was one.

if he wins the French I will become a believer

Damn near impossible, even for him. He can definitely win the career grand slam of course.

Come back to me after he wins the French and Wimbledon this year and then we'll talk.

Yeah, I don't think that it's possible for a man.

I don't think he'll do it. It's hard to see past the Spaniards/Argentines for the French Open. My boyf says that the Olympics will probably be played on clay as that is the predominant surface in Greece. Anyone know if he is right

i would be curious to see this poll if it was created after the french open if roger won it...

WyverN
02-02-2004, 02:21 AM
well I bet $10 on Roger winning all 4 slams this year prior to oz open......I get $10000 if he does it......good start Roger! ;)

and to think he doesn't even have to win the olympics for you to collect that dough... pfff
:lol:

WyverN
02-02-2004, 03:15 AM
:lol: yep - I had doubts if olympics were included but just the 4 slams is a walk in the park

I got in at $1:1000 odds

Now that he has won AO it is down to 1:$160

He has a good shot on traditional surfaces. But his chances of winning Olympics and US Open on US hardcourts are not big.

haha everyone is saying no but just watch him stun us all after US Open... i don't think so and i really hope not too... i don't really like dominators... :awww:

It's practically impossible, even for someone as good as he is.... there's just way too much competition in the game for someone to win 4 in one year.

What would you call it, if a player had the perfect season and won the grand slam, the olympics and the championship in the same season? A platinum slam? A diamond slam? Because Graf didn't win the champs in her golden slam season, so you gotta have a different name.

I'm a believer ;) (hmm I should better change it to I am hoping so )

Just keep the fingers crossed that you guys didn't jinx him with this toppic :)

But I agree RG will be his toughest slam to win but then again he already has titles and finals on clay...

....also US is going to be though as some amy player will have a word there too - but then again he won TMCH on US hardcourts....


... so I remain a believer ;)

No, he won't. Roland Garros will prove too big a hurdle for him. He has a good shot at competing for the title at Wimbledon and even the US Open, but I think players such as Ferrero, Agassi and even Safin will be better on clay.

Vass

There are too many better claycourters than Roger. He will definitely fall in one of the last 3 matches.

Fact: Federer is the best player in the world.

Fact: Federer will not win all 4 Slams this year or any other year.

He is bound to have at least ONE patented Federer meltdown (30 winners, 80 unforced errors) a year, he is human afterall.....Especially considering how much PRESSURE comes with being #1 and always a favorite to win. Federer just DOESN'T seem like the type to be a daily grinder. He has soul of a volatile artiste ala Agassi or Becker, and not a machine like Sampras, Courier or Chang.

He will also have tough competition in Roddick, Nabaldian, Ferrero, Safin and possibly Hewitt and even Kuerten (on clay of course) to say nothing of Moya and Grosjean who on their best day can beat ANYBODY. Hell, even Agassi should give him trouble (knock-knock) through 2005 at least.

And who knows, perhaps ANOTHER talented youngster will come out of nowhere to challenge him like he himself challenged Sampras in 2000 Wimbledon.
