True, but remember, he was very happy for his good friend Tommy Haas, and happy for Andy as well.

Not fitness, recovery powers... All of those youngsters have that as an advantage, including Delboy.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

That would be the best place to tie McEnroe with 77 titles.

And now he has to make his own path to unchartered waters.

Going through a masters without losing a set and on top of that not being broken in any service game.
Then in the finals against a great serve returner without having a breakpoint against him.

It takes years to decline, with Fed playing at this level it would take awhile for those skills to drop off as long as he schedules intelligently and works hard.

Winning on outdoors HC is a bonus in addition to adding to his legacy.

Default Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

In all fairness this seemed far-fetched a year ago with Fed getting stuck at a 4-tournaments per year rate for 4 years (and looking like even dropping from that pace in 2011). Since the birth of Wiserer in the semis of USO he's won now 9 titles and suddenly it's looking very realistic, perhaps even likely. Not bad, not bad at all.

Default Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

Roger turned the clock back. His form is even more amazing if you watch his previous rivals - noone of them is half a player they were in prime or retired already. That era was so better than this one, a lot of players had imagination and skills for all-court tennis.

Rogie wouldn`t win so easily with guys of his age in their prime around in stead of current "golden era". I believe he can get to 9 titles till the year is over.

Hm, I think if he wins the USO, 9 titles seems like a good estimation as I doubt he'll play Shanghai then. He'll give himself plenty of rest and attack Basel and the WTF which means he just won't be able to get to 10.
