He really needs to play all 4 if he is to have ANY chance of finishing 2012 at #1.
Nole is a lock for #1, he'll lead the race by 1800 points or so after the USO.

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

7 Wimbledon titles

Best chance for another slam will be at Wimbledon.

I actually feel like the USO (along with RG) are the least likely for him to win again. The courts are just so unforgiving and he is not getting any younger. I agree about the rest though.

federer isn't reaching either of those. too many players can beat the old legs these days

his slam count is out of reach and he owns almost every important record there is outside clay

old man should be satisfied with this, and instead invent a time machine, travel back to the 90s, and make it an even stronger era

Nope, not to many.

Who else then Berdych, Nadal and Nole? and please don't say Tsonga, he would eat him alive this year on slams for sure.

when you go from 1 player beating you in slams, to 3 players at least beating you, that is a massive increase. shall i mention the numerous 5 setters he's come back from this year?

tsonga would beat federer more often if he had a brain and backhand. fortunately for federer, he doesn't have a backhand either, but at least has a brain

only way federer reaches lendl's title mark is if he preys on estoril, toyko, rotterdam, memphis, lyon etc. he isn't going to do that, especially not next year when he can skip the masters series that he's crap at.

federer has the weeks at no 1, slams are what matters for him

The players i mention could beat Federer, but its not very likely, Murray in slams has no weapons vs Federer, and Nole can do it only on hard courts, RG/Wimby much less chance so you get my point.

When Federer is in good shape, Tsonga would not even make a brake, let alone winning or taking set. Like i said, Fed would destroy Tsonga this year.

So Roger's playing Shaghai. If Djoker and Muzz play a long USO final (hope they do), hopefully Roger can gain some points here.

Time is running out.

Is it possible that he won't win one hundred Grand Slams?

100 slams? Interesting.

But if you win 100 masters is that better than a slam ???

Such is the questions Federer faces

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

djokovic is 50/50 on clay versus federer...at this moment in time i'd say he has the advantage

old legs don't have the stamina for clay anymore

those three players have limited federer to one out of the last 16 slams. it's clearly very likely

as i said, federer should be content. he has achieved almost all of the important all time records

Roger has yet to confirm he's playing DC. He has, however, confirmed he'll play Shanghai. Interesting. I'd love if he ends up #1 with 1 slam against Djoker's 2 .
