The title is not clear enough? What odds do you need? I am not a betting house, just a MTF member

You have to make up some odds or the topic really will have no point.

I think he has good chance of winning more than one slam in the next couple of years.

What he can't do is dominate a season anymore.

He doesn't win next year, chances are good he never will again... So he has 4 shots

Anything you want. He is not winning another slam. Nadal will be there to stop him

Federer isn't winning RG

so that's 3 shots. While we're at it, he isn't winning AO, Wimbledon and US Open either. I would bet an awful lot on it

I'd make the odds of Federer never winning another GS at 5/1. I would'nt bet against him unless the odds were better though, i'd be looking for better value.

Roger isn't Sampras. He can actually compete with the best players in the world still. Heck, if he gets an 02 USO type draw, he'd probably run through a slam without dropping a set. Pete needed 5 sets and all he could handle to beat Rusdeski. LMAO.
