McEnroe doubts Federer Grand Slam chances

Posted 08-26-2013 at 04:50 PM by Philip Oliver
John McEnroe says he doesn’t believe Roger Federer will ever win another Grand Slam title ahead of the US Open.

The Swiss star recently dropped to seventh in the world rankings, his lowest position for over a decade and after previously dominating the game, he has now won just one of the last 14 majors, the 2012 Wimbledon Championships.

Punters who bet on tennis realise that at 32, injuries are perhaps inevitably starting to affect his form while following years of relying on his elegance and grace, he has now started to explore other avenues in trying to rediscover his form with him recently starting to play with a new larger racket.

However, he does have great memories of the final Grand Slam of the year at Flushing Meadows, having won the title five years in a row between 2004 and 2008.

It doesn’t look so positive for him in 2013, with his new ranking meaning he is seeded seventh for the tournament and looks likely to meet Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals. That is reflecting in the tennis betting , where he is at his highest odds for a long time.

His recent difficulties have seen a number of critics starting to write him off and McEnroe believes the Swiss star’s form woes mean he will now struggle to add to his 17 Grand Slam titles.

“To me, there comes a point, even as great as Roger has been for so many years, that it catches up to you a little bit," the out-spoken American told Reuters. "I don’t see at this stage him being able to go through all seven (rounds) and have to beat at least two of these (top) three guys.

"At Wimbledon I could see him going late into an event, a final. I could see it on a hard court, but I personally think that at this stage it’s going to be quite, quite difficult for him to win another one.”
