Doesn't matter the outcome, it will be his 1000th match:worship:

# Matches = 999
# Mid-match retirements = 0
# Grand Slam Tournaments Played = 51 + 2 Qualies in 1999
# Consecutive Grand Slam Tournaments Played = 49

Great achievement for him, I hope Del Po sends him packing though, we all know Fed will piss the bed against Nadull while Del Po may not.

At the this point though, I think Federer would be better against Nadal than Del Potro. I still don't think Del Potro is strong enough mentally to take out Nadal. We saw his matches last year and some of the old strengths against Nadal were back, however, he just couldn't pull it off consistently for an entire match. Federer may certainly be high on confidence and he has plenty of room to improve. I think if he beats Del Potro and meets Nadal, he will much more ready than he was last year in Australia when he met Djokovic. He didn't make the mistake of peaking too early yet as IMO he has gradually gotten better and better with each match unlike last year where he had the form of his life in Doha and then he consecutively got worse after each match in Australia.

Hopefully he retires softly into the night, resting on his laurel and gracefully accepting his fate.

Its an amazing achievement even if Fed says he doesnt feel it that special because of how many doubles and challengers and all he has played. It shows how long the guy has been around and its testimony to his physical and mental strength that he still competes at such a high level.
I doubt if we will see Djokovic or Murray or even Nadal reach this milestone.

nice to see nadal fans are still void of imagination - the reasons we called him Nadull is because he has an L in his name ...work with the name FEDERER or ROGER... MORONS!!
:rolls:

Who invented this namecalling rule and where can we find the rulebook? You call him Nadull because he has an L in his name? :spit:
While you're at it, Rafael Nadal doesn't have a "u" in it so Nadull doesn't fit either. :hug:

Its called a word-play you take a name alter a letter or two turning into satirised word phrase - but the sound of the name remains similar - so Tony Blair becomes Tony Bliar calling George Bush - George Bulair would be :cuckoo: as is Fedul because it sounds nothing like his name…the best I’ve seen for Federer is Fed-error ..
I'll stop debating with the linguistically challenged

May I suggest taking up a hobby instead of lecturing others on nicknames?

Namecalling isn't a sport with a set of rules written in stone.

:lol: A nice patronising touch. :hatoff:
I take it that it takes special linguistic skills to call people "morons" for a silly nickname that isn't up to your taste and linguistic level so let's not debate over it, no. :hug:
