I think he might probably skip 2 of the 3 Masters (Toronto, Shanghai, Paris), depending on his results in the Olympics and US Open.

Default Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

It's interesting.
It's arguably the best part of the year coming for him in terms of playing conditions (grass Olympics, faster outdoor hard, and indoor hard).

Will he get on a roll after winning Wimbledon - his first major in over 2 years, and retaking world #1?
Or will he relax?
Will the other top players bear down even more now and try to knock him off his pedestal?
Some may say he is too old to keep up this pace, even though others in history have done so.

Make your most educated guess

Respectfully,
masterclass

Default Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

I'm giving him 4, based on the following likelihoods.

1. Olympic Games
99% - This yawn tournament is as close as it gets to a lock. Watch him f*ck it up just cause of my prophecy.

2. Toronto
15% - I'd rather he skipped it honestly. Don't need to see him struggling to shake off the celebratory champagne still running through his old veins.

3. Cincinnati
51% - Here's hoping he gives Novak a good fight in the final.

4. US Open
50% - F*cking take the match point this time, will ya?

5. Shanghai
30% - Rolex doesn't write that fat check so he can keep skipping their tournaments, but I'm happy for Novak and Andy to go at it for this one.

6. Basel
90% - this is the year they name the main court after him.

7. Paris
0% - he's not playing this one peeps. Old bones' been there done that. Got bigger fish to fry. See below.

8. WTF
90% - in the gold-embroidered, #300-anagrammed bag.

Voted 2. Not sure why but I am not that optimistic for the end of year.

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.

Default Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

Olympic Games 2012 - i'd say he is the favourite here (1)

Rogers Cup (Toronto) Masters 1000 - i reckon he will skip after olympics

Cincinnati Masters 1000 - either this or USO

US Open - either this or Cinci (2)

Shanghai Rolex Masters 1000 - might skip if he wins USO

Swiss Indoors (Basel) ATP 500 - has to win (3)

BNP Paribas Masters 1000 - don't see him pushing alot here, unless year-end no.1 is at stake.

Barclays ATP World Tour Finals - final push before season-end (4)

Default Re: How many more titles will Federer win this year?

4, in my opinion.


I'm pretty sure for those 3:
Olympics
US Open
Basel

The 4th will be one of the two:
Toronto
Barclays ATP World Tour Finals

I think Roger will skip Toronto and Paris certainly and possibly Shanghai.

So out of Olympics, Cincinnati, US Open, Basel and WTF I think he'll win 3 with those 3 being Olympics, Cincinnati and Basel.
