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

this will become the mother of all sports quests in modern sports. it will be known going forward simply as "The Quest".

can he snatch a total of 100 titles before he hangs up his racquets? is that a viable goal for him to have?

and also what about 20 slams now that 17 are in the bag?


i know he wants slams but slams dont come easy after 30. he will be one of the exceptions obviously if it happens. where do you see his best chance at another slam? could it be on the u.s. open surface?

somebody won a french open at 31 for instance? what was his name? that is your question of the day. here is a hint: he was 6 foot 5 and he was a left hander.

muscles (rosewall) was making the finals of slams at some ridiculous old age. so if you have the talent and you can keep up on the fitness front you can certainly show up in the finals of slams.

90 at absolute best and that is one hell of a stretch.

so 30 years old tennis player needs to win almost a half of titles more that he won in last 12 years of carrier in time when surface becoming slower and slower and tennis more and more physically harder . pretty obvious this will happen

Question: You know how many titles he won last year right? You know he needs 29 more to hit 100? Winning that many over a full career is a very hard task. Winning 30 after 30? Just retarded

Some mod should probably drag this thread outside. I saw an Elephant with stomach problems

I don't think so. He wins mostly indoors nowadays. 29 more titles seems a lot to me...

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!

Default Re: The King of 100 Titles : The Great Swiss Assasin

he has to specialize. it is simple. he will rack them up on indoor hard courts and other hard courts. some grass titles are also in the mix.

he is not the average hapless ejaculite we usually see at the asylum.

he is more focused and more driven now that the time is of the essence. i think we are seeing the results.

Default Re: The King of 100 Titles : The Great Swiss Assasin

come off it folks. the big idea of this thread is to exlpore that very possibility.

its ok if you dont think he will hit 100 titles. your input is still important. that is what makes and also advances this discussion.


also where did i say they all have to be singles titles?

Nah. If it was like the 60s/70s with alot of fast indoor surfaces even PRO SLAMS then maybe.
Today highly unlikely, 80 something likely though.
