USO is slower than Cincy but it is in NO way a slow court. Last year it was particularly slow but USO usually plays really fast.

nope, i can't deny that. i am just mentioning is a slower court compared to cincy i am not saying it is as slow as miami or clay. 2 things that federer has above head and shoulder among any other player right now is his return to the net play. that was always his strength when he was an up and comer and decided to leave the style because of obvious reasons. but now he is adapting it again because too many baseliners defensive players who stay way behind the baseline.and he can't go toe to toe with ball bashers anymore.

3 things that makes him fave

1. no rafa
2. confidence which goes hand in hand with number 1
3. improve net play. thank you paul annacone

There is nothing I would love more than for Roger to win in Queens, but Murray should not be slept on.

Agreed. His net play in the Wimbledon final was nothing short of awesome, and was pretty decent today too. Good to see someone having the balls to attack the net early in a point. It's a shame we don't see it more from too many other players.

I've read somewhere - actually it might have been a post on MTF - that the US Open courts and balls will play quicker this year than last year (at least). Can anyone confirm that?

So much depends on the draw. Whoever draws Ferrer will play first and the one who draws Murray will probably have a brutal match late in the evening. Because of his age and less recovery time, Fed would not have much of a chance vs Nole playing the evening before. Besides, it seems that mentally he can't keep it together for too long.

I thought it was interesting what Courier said about Fed's scheduling and deciding not to "overplay." Fed didn't chase after the exhibitions, etc. instead he scheduled himself to peak at the GSs with almost "enforced" 6 week rests after (except for a few Davis Cup appearances). The GS success came and was followed by the lucrative sponsorships and no need for exhos. So yes, Fed and IMG have managed his career very well indeed - his image, the balance of family vs tennis life, the media, the scheduling etc.

Hope he can continue with the excellent scheduling. Maybe next year he should cut down on some of the back-to-back Masters - e.g. don't play Canada/only Cincy (especially play where the courts are faster and more favorable to him).

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

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.

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.
