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.

It feels sooooooo good to be proven wrong at times.

If anything, I hope the talks of the 2004-2007 era being a 'weak' one () are for now DEAD and BURIED.

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

My feeling is he's more likely to get to 20 slams than 100 titles, even after a superlative performance in Cincinnati this past week. Surely age will catch up with him in a season or so's time?

If he captures US Open this year (still a big IF in my book), and Nadal stays injured or off form for a couple of majors next year, then expect 20 before the middle of July.

if he has enough energy to win 3 more slams he can win many more titles on the way (like basel, halle, rotterdam, doha)

Now I know this won't happen as Novak's so tough to beat in the AO but are you suggesting Roger finally does the 4-in-a-row at the ripe old age of 31 ? Because if that happens surely the Nadulletards will waive goodbye to the forum .

Err, no. The MOST he can hope for is AO and Wimbledon, but only if his competition is significantly limited by an undercooked, or unfit Nadal. Federer seems to raise his level when Nadal is not lurking on the other side of the draw in majors, no? And before that he'll have to win US Open this season, which is hardly a given.

What I will say though is that after today, any objective observer (and some of us do post on MTF) would have to place Federer above Djokovic as favourite for US Open. He's clearly the better player at the moment. But what may well count against him is that Djokovic is six years younger, with better stamina and powers of recovery....

Your second paragraph is spot on. That's why I could not have RF as favourite for the USO. That SS is just too stupid. If Novak loses early, Roger has a huge chance.

Cincinnati is no way a measure of the us open. cincy is a faster court where attacking high risk tennis pays off but the us open is a slower court. but rafa is not in the tournament so that makes roger the fave. because for me that alone bring out the worst in federer

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

I put Fed as the USO favorite just based on two things.

He took Djokovic to five sets and had the advantage in the fifth set so it was very close.

1) Djokovic was playing at a higher level last year.
2) Fed is playing at a higher level this year.

Combine the two and Fed has a good advantage.

it's still outdoor HC and the last big tournamanent before the US open which is just 1 week away
it's a way of measure but it doesn't mean fed winning in new york is a lock.
it means something, you cannot deny that
