How Roger Federer Will Raise the Trophy in Paris (http://bleacherreport.com/articles/175696-how-roger-federer-will-raise-the-trophy-in-paris)

Believe it or not, this is not one of those wishful thinking articles about how Roger Federer can turn it around to win the French Open.

There are four basic scenarios in which Roger Federer can raise the trophy in Paris. The only mandatory requirement for these four scenarios to work is that Federer reaches the finals.

With that, let's get on with it!

Scenario One

This is the scenario that most Federer fans would like to see. Federer's performance peaks, and he improves both his first serve percentage and backhand accuracy.

He catches Rafael Nadal off guard with brilliant changing tactics. Chip and charge, lobs, slices, and drop shots all keep Nadal guessing.

Basically, Federer outlasts and defeats Nadal to win his first French Open. He hoists it high to savor the victory that has eluded him for so long.

Scenario Two

This one sees Nadal either being upset or injured in Paris. Thereby, it allows Federer to beat everyone else to take his first French Open grand slam. Hoisting it high, it gives Federer his first career slam.

It could be somewhat of a hollow victory as whispers in the press will not give full credit to Federer seeing that Nadal did not make the finals.

Scenario Three

Federer loses the finals to Nadal. However, at the award ceremony he strategically places himself between several organizers and Nadal himself.

Upon announcing the trophy going to Nadal on the crowded platform, Federer volunteers to take the trophy to Nadal. He lifts it high in the air to get through the many people to bring the trophy to Nadal.

(Hey, what did you expect? I said "raise the trophy," not win the tournament.)

Scenario Four

Roger again loses to Nadal in the finals. The award ceremony goes off without a hitch.

The next day (Monday), Federer sources out a particular company in Paris. He visits this company with a prepaid order made out six months prior.

The company manufactures (you guessed it) French Open trophies. Upon purchasing his order, Federer takes the trophy and heads into the streets of Paris.

With the roof down and sitting in the back of his chauffeur-driven car, Federer waves to the growing crowds displaying his trophy for all to see.

The impromptu parade is met with stunned, shell-shocked Parisians who can barely make any sense out of what they are seeing. (Just another day in Paris?)

It's a wild, insane parade devoid of any rationality to celebrate the slam that Federer never won.

or he could raise the runner up trophy, again -- that is, if he could make it to the final.

very possible, which is why the article mentioned that fed would first have to make the final for any of the scenerios to take place. But yeah, fed could lose early as well. I don't see him making the final this year.

With Federer's luck I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he makes it to the final again.

lmao at the picture of fed milking the guy. I believe her name is Juliette. Wonder if she is still alive. I remember in one interview someone asked about her and fed was like "she's pregnant" and the guy congratulated him and in response fed was like "Thanks, but I'm not the father." :lol:

Scenario Five:

Rather than host a tennis match, the tournament officials decide to turn the finals between Nadal and Federer, into a wrestling match. Federer, get's the advantage early and almost pins Nadal with a school boy roll up but Uncle Tony, interferes and Nadal kicks out. Federer grabs the RG trophy and attempts to clobber Rafa's Uncle but Nadal takes advantage and finishes Federer with a neckbreaker. Rafa pins Federer to win his fifth straight Roland Garros title. After the match Nadal leaves with his theme song playing as he exits. Federer, is left crying in the center of the stadium with Mirka.

Since this thread isn't a serious one, I decided that my post shouldn't be either.;)
