federer will probably win RG, W and USO in this form

nole has to focus on the masters and maybe he amasses enough points to be #1 at the end of the year

it will be interesting

If he wins 2 of the next 3 Slams, I am guessing he should have a great chance. This RG final could be huge.

"Tough match?" World #3 Federer's ("greatest player to have ever played the game," you just said before rushing off the bathroom to change your underwear) H2H against World #58 Seppi is 6-0.

If it wasn't tough, Federer's victory would not be as glorious and godlike! Naturally, if Seppi and Isner were in Nadal's side of the draw, any victory that he managed to scrape out against these Tough Titans of Tennis would be pure luck!

Well it would be amazing if he did it just for a few weeks to clinch that record from Sampras. I'm rooting for him to do it. Also for the 20 slam goal. Both are possible but very very hard.

he would need to win AT LEAST two of the next 3 slams and defend his points between wimby & USO or hope that nadal & Novak go out early at both Wimby and USO

He has a real chance at nr 2 for now. He needs to win W or US OPEN and make the final in one of them aswell to have a chance at nr 1.. And a Masters win + final in Cincy/Canada( or Shanghai etc..

with his current form, hell yes.
realistically? who knows how long it will last. certainly in with a chance though. probably needs to happen around USO (which he will win, obviously, thankyouverymuch), he has a great point streak going after that, not much to gain, lots to defend.

Default Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Hmm i checked his ranking history and it was a shame with his spring. He needed a Master 1000 win or two and it would have looked pretty good now. After all S in AO, and he is defending only QF in both RG AND Wimbledon. Logically if he wins both then he got the shot! he has 1500 from WTF after all so this year could be his last window for world number 1.

He needs one of the heroes like Soderling, Berdych, Ferrer, Melzer, Monfils or what not to take Nadal or Djokovic out in QF in Wimbledon just like Soderling and Berdych sabotaged his own nr1 hopes in 2010. Then win himself and he pretty much got it!

Default Re: Will Federer become number 1 again?

Funny to see some folks thinking Rog win RG/Wimbledon and/or reach finals everywhere - not to mention, defend his tons of points he racked up in the latter five months of the year - is a realistic idea.

Apparently they believe Federer will manage to maintain his current form for another six months or so. I'd really like to see it happen, but reality tells me that Fed's form has been rather inconsistent the past two, three years - not even to mention that he's perfectly capable of playing a string of perfect matches in a tournament, only to let it be followed by a stinker the very next day...

Time for a reality check eh?
(NB: if he DOES manage to get back #1, you're all very welcome to bump this post and laugh at me. )

after yesterday, people kind of believe he can do a lot of things, if he really wants to. and they are not wrong.
but nobody is exactly claiming it to be highly likely scenario.

It'a not because he beat an exhausted Nole that he'll win RG or another slam..
let's be realist : he's almost 30 and has been declining during the past 2 years
RG 2011 is probably a flash in the dark, nothing more
