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

A lot of people said that breaking Sampras's record and winning RG would be enough for them. I never thought like that. However, with this latest success and all the consequences like world #1 and record Wimbledon titles it brings makes me satisfied with Fed's career as it is. If he stops tomorrow, I won't mind.

However, that's probably because I know he'll aim for even more and I'll get to enjoy his free-flowing excellence and fighting spirit for many years to come, save for a freak injury.

There was an interview in which he was asked the same question by the journalist about 100 titles. It was eerie actually. Maybe the journalist is a MTF member

I'll try but this is still MTF and that's almost as difficult as putting a dress to a hungry bear.

i am usually 20 steps ahead of the press general shanks. for instance, i am the one who said over 4 years ago that nole was the future #1.

you can always check with general viruzzz. he will gladly verify it.


by the way we have a new fed fan at the castle. you can meet him next time you are at the castle.

Nice title change.

I think 20 GS are possible, but 100 titles are probably out of reach. The problem is, if he aims for 100 titles he will need to play a lot of minor tournaments, and given his age, it will break down his body.

I must admit I thought Nole will not take that next step but am glad he proved me wrong.

thanks general. Am checking in the Castle now.

And this is how the quest for 20 began! RG 1999, ranked 111, got a WC into the MD, lost to Rafter in R1
"This is why this guy is going to be good for the game. He has this sort of arrogance, he's got a bit of a smile about him, he's gonna relate to crowds as his personality develops, as he gets more confident about his position on the professional circuit"

Lol, the commentator said Roger would be good for the game. How true is that in hindsight!

Just realised that's two consecutive tournaments that Reed got right. Maybe he's turned a corner

believe it or not but he has actually uttered those words in the past.

he has thrown numbers like 18 and 20 around.


it gives the fed fans a great topic to discuss generalito.


i believe this will be the greatest visionary thread ever at MTF.

and we are giving it to the guy who has 17 majors.

I know but then he should have snatched a couple of more the past years.


which slams do you root for? the next 2, 3 RG's are Nadal's.

Best options are US Open and Wimbledon, although he has proven he can be good in Australia as well.


1 more US Open, 1 more Wimby and 1 more AUS Open. is it achievable?

he can target the next 2 wimbledons generalito. grass is his best chance.

you and i predicted that he was going to win wimbledon ages ago. he understands grass the best. it is also the least demanding of all slams.

and then another one will have to come from somewhere else if it happens at all.
