Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

Roger is letting some of the small ones get away General... Guys like Donskoy & Murray (Dubai) and Haas & Pouille (Stuttgart) need to eat too.



Maybe he'll leave something else in the water this year for Ssssiiii-mon. The Frenchman still looks like he hasn't eaten in a week.

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

federer's main concern at this point should be one that's pretty much entirely out of his control. that is, the older you get, the more likely you have off days that just can't be arrested.

that's why players in their late 20's who are typically in their peak are able to play their best, in my opinion. it's their ability to be consistently great, as federer, nadal and djokovic in particular have demonstrated.

the older one gets, the chances of having an off day seem to increase significantly. hence why federer can play amazing one day, and not have much click the next.

i was worried federer skipping clay would result in him being too rusty, but if he continues to build on his halle showing then his scheduling could work out ingeniously. he certainly appears to have shaken off the rust, and considering he's relatively fresh, the rest of the field should prepare for death

he has left much on the table. I cant be expected to be happy with him but I will take it under consideration.




he should have played at the rome masters and at RG. it would prepared him better for Wimbledon.

I mean maybe but practicing with wimbledon balls on hardcourt is way more prep for grass and he is super well rested and injury free.

This bodes well not only for grass season but the rest of the season when everyone is going to be feeling the grind fed is going to be fresh.

Also, murray played 1 grass match, nadal 0, djokovic will play right before. Most of the top 5 have very little match play on grass coming into the season.

Federer looked unaffected todday at least.. he was always going to be rusty after a 11 week break but it think he is starting to get his groove. Perhaps he would have won stuttgart if he had played during clay but really i think losing to haas was good for haas and federer who kind of woke up a bit.

Nole owned Federer in the 2015 Wimby.
USO? Federer couldn't even beat Nole despite the entire crowd abusing Nole and yelling when he was serving and applauding his mistakes. Federer basically played in Switzerland. Just imagine how much easier Nole would've won if the crowd was neutral or how badly Federer would've gotten owned had the crowd been against him like that.
You're back to fanboying Djokovic?

Anyway it does feel like USO 15 was an enternity ago right?
