Default Federer's chances of eclipsing Lendl's 94 titles?

Will he do it? He's currently at 78.

What are his chances?

Discuss!

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

He needs 17 titles to eclipse Lendl's mark. 17 titles is what he won between 2010-2014.

IMO 85- 88 titles Roger retiring with.

By Tiebreak100 calculations, Murray leads the head to head 8-7
Stunning Objective h2h Analysis.

That will never happen. His 1071 wins however are not completely out of reach, though it should be very tough.

Can't see this happening.

Fortunately for him the overall number of titles isn't the most important measure of greatness.

Who cares.

What about Lendl eclipsing Federer's 17 GS'?

2 premier mandatory level titles and above the most. the rest will be lesser events, just depends if his ego would allow him to vulture them or not.

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!
