20 grand slams is possible, 100 total titles not really. It's just highly unlikely he'll be around long enough to get another 24 total titles. 20 Grand Slams will be a stretch as well but, if he has one more great year, it's possible. 24 more titles is far less likely. I dont really think he cares about total titles anyway. He knows he will never beat Jimmy Conner's record in that regard so it's not a record he's chasing.

Maybe he could win 24 more titles if he played more ATP 250 matches and less ATP 500 matches?

Unlikely. At least the 100 titles. 20 slams are possible.

This year Fed has really surprised me. I knew he might have a major left in him (let's hope even more than one ), but to come out and win 9 titles in less than 12 months and climb back to #1 is amazing, and I wouldn't have thought of it even in my wildest dreams.

For the USO I think stupid Saturday hurts his chances a lot, Nole should be favourite there.

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!

Corrected.
Still, if the courts are really faster than last year, Roger should be able to cruise to semifinal without wasting too much energy.

Paul annacone is a GOAT coach, handling 2 GOATs. Today he incoporate Sampras 2nd serve which Federer modified as aggressive kick serve trying to hit the lines. Attacking the net at right time in the middle of rally, i think got to do with a better forehand also that players difficult to pass him. His fitness seems better too.

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

It really is a joy to see Roger come full circle from 2010 when he started his work with Paul. It was 2 years before he last won a slam and now 2 years after he started working with Paul you can see their hard work bearing fruits in the form of titles, slams, #1, etc.

His net play and his ability to recognise when to come to the net has undoubtedly been massively reawakened (he was always good but just neglected it) since PA came on board.

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.

peRFect! I love "The Quest"

24 to go. I think if he takes more smaller tournaments into his schedule and he'll play at injury-free at least till Rio 2016, maybe, it is possible.
he'll take 2 tournaments this year, the there would be 22 left.
22 in 4 years, where he has his major-game till W 2014 would be possible. then he can play all
rotterdams, dubais, estorils, halles, (after 2014? gstaats), cincys, stockholms/viennas, basels and WTFs to reach the 100.

How do we rate Roger's chances for 18 and 77 folks?

Negative. Berdych-Murray-Djokovic will be too much for him. Especially on these slow ass courts and with stupid saturday.
