nothing against andy because i like him but this was a surface that favored Fed`s current game. he was serving well enough and hitting his forehand reasonably well enough. relatively slick hard courts favors his game anyway.

and he was able to take the ball early for the msot part.


he did not play well today but if he had, the score would have been 6-3, 6-3.

Stop bumping this topic. Roger has no chance to get 100 titles. I repeat: NO CHANCE

Sorry Djokonauts, I am a fan of Federer now. I've learned over the years to appreciate his contribution to the game. No one will ever surpass this man's influence.
Federer ~ The consummate professional. Never retired once in a match. Does not go over the time limit on every point.

he has 72 now and should have 76-77 by the end of the year.

i say the possibility does exist if he stays healthy, fit, and driven and he play until he is 38-39.

why dont you do the math.

This is going to be an epic thread, not really because I think Federer will get to 100 titles but because he will get alot closer than most of you expect. In 4 years when he will be with around 90 this thread will start to really take fire.

CD, well you were right yesterday, bud.

As Karlovic lended Murray his serve yesterday, I didn't expect the Croat wanting it back so soon.

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

I'm happy CD.
I was kinda nervous for this match, but Fed did well. 72 is a big number.
Now, you were so confident about your prediction, and you know this is MTF. In case of a fail, all the Anti-Fed army would be insulting you and the Pro-Fed army would call you a jinxer.
But you succeed and you were always IN with your prediction, even if the whole forum was against it.

Well played, sir. You always had my respect, and today I'm so ok with that.


Also.
This thread is a lucky one, we need to keep it up

perfectly well put and stated sexybeast. it is amazing how many legless ejaculites of the lost world at Ejacustan (aka asylum, aka GM) are willing to argue with us.

when will they learn that we are the ultimate cognoscente of these complicated tennis matters.

you are a class act mate. and you know i am a fan of your style. fashions fade but style is eternal as you know.


i am commissioning you to help me keep this thread alive. perhaps we can get it moved to the chat section after 1000 posts so it can stay alive forever.

i bet people will start to get nervous when he hits 90 titles by age 35-36.

even in the un-happening scenario in which he gets to 100 titles, everyone would still say he'd need to surpass connors' record

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

100 titles? Are you kidding? I'll be happy if he overtakes John McEnroe (77) for #3 all time and ends up staying ahead of Nadal. Modern players just don't play enough tournaments every year to approach Lendl/Connors numbers.

I am still hoping for at least one more GS title, though. Olympic title is missing as well.

what was the record for connors anyway?

also how does anyone ever surpass what johnny mac has done: 77 singles and 77 doubles equals 154 titles. i think that is one hell of an achievement also.

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

Any chit-chat about reaching Connor's record is utter rubbish

Jimbo's record will NEVER be surpassed by anyone due to the current setup of the tour.

In order for that to happen the entire ATP circuit needs to almost cease to exist (which is precisely why Connors was able to do it).

He is not going to play for that long...He'll be lucky to get his last title at 34.
