Both are very big asks, but as the GOAT nothing is beyond his reach. He wants to play at least 4 more years and that should give him enough time. Impossible is nothing for Recordbreakerer.

I think him getting 20 slams is more realistic than 100 titles.

Just to be clear, Murray said Fed could have won 20 slams, if a couple of points had gone differently the last two years (presumably referring to the Djoker comebacks at USO, Tsonga at Wimbledon, etc). It was a reflection rather than a prediction.

Federer is now 853-192, do you think Federer will get to 900 wins before he gets to 200 losses?

He is 46-6 this year, if he ends the year as good as he started he should not lose 8 matches as all tournaments will suit him even better at the end of the year. Olympics, Cincy, Usopen, Shanghai, 2-3 indoor tournaments.

He should find nr900 around AO next year.

Only a 100? He can win much more than THAT.

Depends where his focus lies. His goal was to win Wimbledon again (check), get back to #1 (check), and win gold in the Olympics (TBC). Now that he has (pretty much) accomplished this, will his attention switch to chasing Connor's record of most titles won?

He spoke of this at the French Open (wanting to catch it), and he also said he plans to play until 2016 so, assuming his body holds up, it is within the realms of possibility.

Currently he sits on 75 titles, and Connors' record is 109. So to overtake it, he needs to win another 35 tournaments. Or, to be second on the list of most titles won (currently Lendl, on 94) he needs to win another 20.

Remember that next year (in his 31st year), none of the Masters tournaments are mandatory for him - so if he didn't care about his ranking so much, he could potentially play some of the smaller tournaments (with a much better chance of winning) in their place. Rome, Miami, Canada, Shanghai, Paris-Bercy are the tournaments he would be likely to discard from his schedule.

In 2014 he could, even, choose to play just the smaller tournaments and the slams (I doubt he'll ever want to stop playing these until he retires). That way he could add titles from Chennai, Montpellier, Marseille, maybe Munich, Queens, Eastbourne, Newport, go back to Hamburg, play another home tournament in Gstaad, St. Petersburg, Thailand, Japan, Stockholm, etc.

If, for the next two years, he wins six or seven titles (say up to 90 by the end of 2014), then that would leave him with 20 more to get in his final two years in order to claim the all-time record.

That is just feasible, in my opinion, but only if he drops the Masters and plays a lot more of the 250/500 tournaments. If he plans to keep a similar schedule to his current one for the next four years, then no way -- he must recognize that he will no longer (surely by his 33rd birthday) be able to compete at the very highest level, and therefore instead, go all-out in the lower tournaments if he wants to push his tally beyond Connor's.

Getting to 100 would be like climbing up to the height in MT Everest where you have less than 10% of your journey left and you are above the clouds and you can see the top , but you are not at the very top.

So, yeah. When you see Connor's 109 at your reach you can just aswell give it a try even if you are 37 and tired as hell.

On the other hand I dont think Federer would ever lose any sleep over this record.

He can reach. He is a Motivated a Naturally Driven guy. No Doubt he will keep it going. I can see another Couple of Slams in him.

Even in his interview he said he has worked harder than before in the last couple of years.

Connors Agassi all were pretty good in their thritys and we are now talking about Roger Federer.

he surely can do it.

That's false.
I just don't like Nole being there.
I consider him a player with a good year and now we have to tolerate so many stupid people all over the forum.
Also, what you said is false, check the rivalry again, specially outside Roland Garros, you don't know shit.

They kind of have to meet in slams for that to happen, and curiously the last three (i.e. since 2008) have all been on Nadal's best surfaces (slow hard at AO, clay at RG). Imagine what a rivalry it would have been if Nadal was a good enough player off clay to have reached some USO finals (or some of the faster HC Masters).

Truthfully, it's a testament to Federer's brilliance that he was always in the finals on Nadal's best surface, but Nadal almost never was in his.

Thank you! This thread is amazing!

I feel 20 slams are easier to achieve than 100 titles (if he doesnt make a change in his schedule, like playing more 250/500 from next year and on and dropping some masters ..)

Then again, yesterday he prooved that he still has some surpises left for tennis fans! He is above everything very smart and seems to be even more patient and wiser that before!

Cheers!

100 seems a long shot, possible but i think he will end up breaking Ivan Lendl's 94 as for Connors it seems a bit out of reach unless he starts playing those 250's like Connors himself did to reach 109 mark

as for slams, i always believed US open was and still is his Best shot to rack up more slams...so maybe 2 US and 1 wimby he can squeeze in...so realistically 20 seems more plausible than 100 at the moment
