Many people figure rightly so that this record is the most impressive in tennis history and will be the most difficult to break.

Murray is the least likely, but Nole and Rafa are racking them up already.

At their level, I guess they would need to make the semis of at least the next 12 slams (3 years).

Injury would be the biggest obosticle.

I dont see anyone breaking it, but I think at least one will get close.

What do you think?

Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

Actually I think Nadal is the least likely due to injuries.

Djokovic by far the most likely though.

Who cares about the semis? :)
Fedtards? :lol:
Oh! Don't worry. We could start threads like will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds:
- total GS titles
- total weeks as number one
- consecutive weeks as number one

Does anyone care about those stats, or only Fedtards?! :lol: :lol:

Fedtards are already giving up on the present, looking backwards to Fed's relevance.

At least four more straight years of semis in all the majors? Djokovic and Murray are peaking now so they may be able to do it for another two or three years, but four – which would make them around 28/29 – is unlikely; additionally, it'll only take one injury at the wrong time to break that streak – and those two are more prone to injury than Roger was.

You make it very hard even for a Murray fan like myself not saying something nasty about Andy! :lol: :lol:

Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

Absolutely no way in hell.

Nole's loss to Melzer in the 2010 FO QF was the last time he didn't make a semi, but that still only puts him at 7 straight right now. To break the record, he'd have to make every SF up to and including FO 2016 at age 29. :lol:

If nothing else, he is too injury prone for that, especially in the shoulder.

Nadal's at 4 straight, so he would have to make every SF up to and including AO 2017 at age 30, and he's even more injury-prone than Djokovic.

Murray's at 5 straight, so he'd need to make it until US Open 2016 at age 29.

Ludicrous thread, i.e. completely on par for 2003.

Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

Bet people said the same for Fed after RG 2004..

I said make a run for. I said I didnt think they would make it. But they might get close.

On todays ever increasing homogenized surfaces, making the semis of all 4 slams for the next 4 years wouldnt be impossible. Djokvoic 2.0 is pretty much a lock for the semis if hes injured.

Re: Will Nole/Rafa/Murray make a run for Feds 23 consecutive slam semi record?

I know it's a great record. Very, very tough to achieve and all, but lets be honest, nobody but die hard fans will remember that record 10 years from now. Most people will just remember number of slams Federer has won over the years, and that's all that matters in the end. To Federer all these things matter (grand slams, masters, weeks at no.1, number of consecutive semi finals etc), and they should, but when people look back on Federer's achievements they will look at number of slams he's won. Weather you like it or not, tennis is all about grand slams when it comes to history books.

And to answer OP's question: I doubt that Nole/Rafa/Murray will ever beat Federer's 23 consecutive grand slam semi finals record.

If no one cares about semis, then let's move up to finals. The Top 2 records are Fed with 10 and 8 consecutive finals. Djoker stands at 3.

I believe the 23 consecutive GS semis is the most unbelievable record in tennis.
Ergo, all Fed-haters claim it's irrelevant.
