Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.
So after this tread is on the brink of annihilation I'll bump it again. How do people rate RF's chances at equalling Mac's first of two records (875/77) in Shanghai. I say if he beats in Cilic in less than 1.5 hours, he stands a good chance against Murray. As for Djokovic, I hope he loses before the final for maximum point gain.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.
