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

Loving the new title Clay Death. I feel 20 is out of reach personally, 19 is my maximum estimation with 1 USO and 1 Wimbledon. Though who knows for sure, I was becoming resigned to 16 at some points (Im ashamed).

20 maybe difficult. Really depends on his fitness and consistency if he can keep it up. Djokovic & Nadal are going to come back harder now hungry for more success.

Since this thread started (I believe it was after he won Rotterdam), Fed won Dubai, M1000 IW, M1000 Madrid and Wimbadannn.

Where's the jinx?

He returned to world number one and defeated players like Nadal, Djokovic, Murray (x2) during those tournaments I mentioned.

Where's the jinx?

this thread has even the press talking about the possibility of 100 titles.

general viruzzz it is your reponsibility to keep the spineless hate riddled ejacuzees out of this place.

this is a place for honest and objective fed fans to sit down and discuss all tennis matters as they relate to Fed.

I believe turning point was Fed beating Nadal at IW this year. First time he beat Nadal outdoors on hard since 2005 Miami! It was huge for his self confidence and belief.
