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

said it earlier, but i don't see Federer winning shanghai, unless Murray and Djokovic really mug it up in the SF and F.

yes, the surface is playing faster (mainly because Federer moaned about it after losing to Murray in 2010, then again in 2011, and the chinese sped it up, so as to not upset himself), but he will be ground down by constantly rallies. his only hope is to keep the points short aka serve and volley

Basel is a given, the Roger Federer Invitational Tournament. so no 77 will be there

he's skipping Paris, and throwing away the Year End No 1

has to be the favourite for the Year End Championship

Fed did not play in China in 2011 but OK.

#77 at Shanghai looks very unlikely (he's not solid enough for Murray-No2e B2B) but if he does he'll hold 4 ATP Masters 1000 + will be current Paris champion . He holds 4 currently.

seem to remember him weighing in on the surface and the speed, regardless

anyway, as i said, wasn't happening in shanghai

doesn't suit his game these days

next title is in basel for federer. murray will skip it, if he's smart

So how do we feel about #77 at Basel, people? I hope he keeps it together and with Stan out of the way he won't have an emotional problem until the final where he'd face Marco . A match with Dimimug would be nice as well.

Yeah, no. Odds are he's facing Del Potro, and he's of course the clear favorite for the title, although JMDP could conceivably spoil the party.

Delpo has gotten closer and closer to beating Federer this year, so maybe he'll do it here. I wouldn't mind.

I think this is what's going to happen. Del Potro is a huge danger for Roger. If Roger makes it to the final.

Actually I think Del Potro is a threat to Federer, as are most ball-bashers post-2007.

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

So the great Roger Federer was a bit off track in this quest at the end of 2012. After racking up 6 titles until Cincinnati in August with one of them being a slam (Wimbledon) Roger failed to win any title until the end of the year.

Roger lost in the quarters at the US Open and had no chance in Shanghai where Murray soundly beat him. Roger had his chances in Basel losing a match he could very well have won (0/5 on BPs won). Roger also had some chances to take the WTF final to a 3rd set but failed to serve it out.

So, what awaits us in 2013....
Roger as already published his schedule. Miami and Basel are not on his schedule but we all know there will probably be other tournaments Roger won't play to be able to have some rest during the year. He has already stated that he will play a reduced number of tournaments in the upcoming years and that he'll try and play in the Olympics in Rio in 2016.
So what are your expectations for 2013? Will Roger keep adding enough titles and slams to keep the quest alive?

Roger currently has 76 titles of which 17 are slams. So he needs 24 titles of which 3 slams to complete the quest.

If we assume Roger plays until 2016 he would have 4 more years to do it. This means an average of 6 titles per year. He would also need to win 1 slam in 3 of those 4 years.

As for the question, the 20 slams is a possibility, but the 100 titles is imo not going to happen.
