Default What if Federer won his tiebreaks vs Horna?

How different would the world be if Federer had beaten Horna in the first round of the 2003 French Open? Verkerk made the finals on his side of the draw, (beating Horna in 5), Schuettler, and Spadea?

Would he have beaten Moya in the QFs? Coria in the SFs? JCF in the Finals?

How different is his career if he wins the French in 2003, as his first Slam?

It would be a different world then, wouldn't it? Maybe he stays on Clay. Roddick reaches number one and wins Wimbledon in 2003. Roddick wins the 2003 US open and Wimbledon in 2004, and 2005. Hewitt wins the US Open in 2004, Marat wins the Australian Open back to back. Fed wins RG 2004, the US open in 2005, the Australian Open in 2006 and Roland Garros in 2009.

5 slams. Never reaches number 1, (behind Roddick in 2003, 2004) and Nadal from 2005 onwards.

Falls to 3 in 2005 behind Nadal after Nadal wins RG and finally overtakes Roddick in 2006. Stays behind Nadal until falling to mono in 2008.

Endless arguments about whether Federer is one of the best claycourters of all time, after a 10 year SF streak at RG, 3 wins and losses only to Nadal. Wins at Rome, Monte Carlo, Hamburg and Madrid. No weeks at number 1, but 5 slams. Loses to Nadal in 2006, Roddick in 2005, 2004, and 2003. 4 straight Wimbledon finals without a win.

Yes, a world where he has 5 slams, 3 at RG, one at the Australian Open and one at the US Open. Wins all the clay masters, has all nine masters events. Like Vilas, never reaches number 1 and considered the all-time best never to do so.

He could also have won the 2004 RG instead of losing by a triple 6-4 against Guga

The same has to be said about 2003 Rome (losing against Mantilla of all people :facepalm) and 2003 and 2004 Montecarlo if he was ever bothered to play there

In that case he will be a fantastic clay player just before the Nadal era begins
