If he keep playing more 500 and 250 more likely, if he wants to be a top player highly unlikely.

Federer is probably the fave to end the year as no.1 as well. It's about even in the race between the top 3 but this is the part of the season coming up now where Fed often rules, Nole does well, and Nadal merely OK.

I don't know. Fed had that little beard thing going for him in 2003 (the only time I can remember seeing him with facial hair). I thought that was cool.

Default Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

if you asked me that question last year I'd say he had no chances at all.
But ATM I see no declining in him (or at least, not so big to count him out of anything).

With Roger, you never know, you can't count him out of anything, he won this Wimbledon playing some amazing tennis at times.

Time will tell... I'd really like Rafa getting his super-form again (sorry Nolefans, but I prefer Fedal over Fedovic or Nadalovic), and make that duopoly again rule at the tournaments.


Time will tell... ATM Roger needs to relax and prepare for Olympics, then we'll know better about this things.

20 slams? It took him 2.5 years to win one more; anything more than 17 is a bonus at this point.

He's made some adjustments in his game and Nadal has gotten older (who was his main obstacle). He can hold his own against Nole.

I don't think he'll get to 20 but its not out of the question.

I say he gets to 18.


I will say this, if he win the US Open this year and goes into next season sitting at 19 and can manage to win 1 next year he might have enough in him to push himself to 20 in 2014.

That said its uphill battle he will probably come short, even if he plays well the rest of this year and next year.

Default Re: Roger Federer : The Quest For 20 Slams and 100 Titles

If he wins the USO he'd be sitting at 18 going into the next season, not 19. (Your alternate reality is so very appealing though. )

It's definitely an uphill battle. He's competing against players 5, 6 years younger than him. I can't see him winning the French ever again, and Melbourne's courts don't seem to suit his game anymore. That leaves him with Wimbledon and the US Open, which he'd have to win in consecutive years to get to 20. Considering it took him 2.5 years to win just one more, I think it's a pretty tough ask for him to win 2 slams in 2 consecutive years. Hence why anything after 17 would be a big, fat, juicy bonus.

That said, I'd never write him off in any major tournament; he's shown this Wimbledon just what he's capable of doing if 1) he gets a favourable draw; 2) he summons his best tennis at the right moments; and 3) he possesses the belief and the will to go for what he wants.

Retirement might prove an obstacle to this quest. I think Federer this past year has been really driven to prove himself one last time (despite what he says). Now that he won #17 and beat the weeks at #1 record, if he also manages to win gold at the Olympics I could see his motivation start to wane by the end of this season. I hope I'm wrong and that he continues to play forever, though.
