Default Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

I know it's a great record. Very, very tough to achieve and all, but lets be honest, nobody but die hard fans will remember that record 10 years from now. Most people will just remember number of slams Federer has won over the years, and that's all that matters in the end. To Federer all these things matter (grand slams, masters, weeks at no.1, number of consecutive semi finals etc), and they should, but when people look back on Federer's achievements they will look at number of slams he's won. Weather you like it or not, tennis is all about grand slams when it comes to history books.

And to answer OP's question: I doubt that Nole/Rafa/Murray will ever beat Federer's 23 consecutive grand slam semi finals record.

I believe the 23 consecutive GS semis is the most unbelievable record in tennis.
Ergo, all Fed-haters claim it's irrelevant.

I'm not a big fan of the guy, but I totally agree. It is just surreal.

-If we look at rafa's history I give him no chance. See 10 as his maximum.

-Murray isn't dominant enough to easily win 4th round and quarter final matches for x years. See 8 as his maximum

-Djokovic has the most potential for a lot of consecutive semifinal runs. However it looks like he asks a lot more from his body compared to Federer who had a bigger edge in the skills department. If he gets lucky with injuries and keeps up his motivation then I can see him possibly reaching 15.

18 out of 19 slam finals is more impressive I think... damn you 2008 Nole!

No, and he won't reach Fed's QF, 4th round, 3rd round, 2nd round, 1st round, quallies, or any other round people can come up with.

The 10 finals is more impressive than anything, not the "OK, this streak ended so let's start talking about a new one" streak.

This.

If there is one streak that has a chance of actually never being broken, tis this one. This is a most insane record, even by Federer's standards and that says everything. People who say no one will "CARE" about this ten years on are just delusional. Federer hit the previous record for a toss here and actually didnt lose before the semis of the slam for like 6 fcking years. Anyone who knows anything about grand slam tennis will see this is an amazing achievement.

As to the OP's question. No, it wont happen. Djokovic may get to the second spot though, that will be none too shabby. I believe its Lendl at 10 currently?

Sweet Jesus, I am a FedTard myself. But I myself cant keep up with all those insane numbers he has posted over the last one decade.

I don't understand why people attack the player when they are annoyed by the fans. That's idiotic. Are you really a Murray fan? Saying this, it doesn't seem like it. It shows how bad your mentality is when you're annoyed by fans on an an internet forum.


As for the semi-finals, the current runs are:

Djokovic: 7
Murray: 5
Nadal: 4

Murray is currently second, so he technically has a far better chance of doing it than Nadal. Djokovic has the best chance, but we can all agree that none of them are getting anywhere near his record. Murray and Djokovic could do it, bit I highly doubt it.

In reality that record will never be broken. That record is beyond belief.
