After the AO people were saying Fed might not win another slam. With Nadal struggling with injuries and Djokovic looking unfocused, the last two months have changed everything. How far can Fed go?

I'd say between 18 to 20. More likely 18. I still think federer will win Wimbledon and the USO for the next two years. Not so sure about Australia. Although if his serve is back to how it was in early 07, then I'm pretty confident that he can win one more of those also.

He has already won 14 lol, and his career is nowhere near over, and his biggest opposition is out of wimbledon so Id say he has 17-18 in him.

How many CAREER SLAMS he can win? He can only win 1. In terms of just Grand Slams, I'd say about 16.

I can see federer winning another Wimbledon and US Open or Aussie Open easily - I don't know if he has another French in him though. I think he'll grab 3 more and that'll probably be about all.

OP, a career slam can only be won ONCE, ...... UNLESS you have multiple careers, lol, like Federer retires, comes back and wins 4 more on diff surfaces.

I agree the question phrasing was not ideal. I should have written "how many total slams will Fed win in his career." If anyone knows how to edit the question (which I don't), please feel free.

I'd just venture a guess and say 2 more Wimbledon titles, 1 more Australian Open and 1 (maybe 2) more US Open(s).

That would be 18-19, which seems like a ton, but it's really not out of the question.

Uhh I feel he is almost done but I could be wrong going to say 16-18.. not sure

I think he'll stay at 13,he's old and done.Pete's record is safe.

I'm gonna say 5 more- 2 Wimbys, a French, and either 2 USOs or 1 US and 1 AO. That leaves him w/ 19.

I'd say around 17, and as many others have already pointed out, we're predicting Grand Slam numbers, not career slams, because you can only have one of those and Fed's already maxed it out... :p

How about 24?

You can vote for the option of 21+ if you think he will win 24... ;)

24 is a bit too optimistic isn't it? :D

No why? 2 more this year and 2 calendar slams in 2010 and 2011 before he retires at 30 years old. (OK I've drunk too much wine I think...)

06-19-2009, 10:21 PM
Only one person (out of 34) has voted 14. So pretty much everyone thinks he will break Pete's record now. I wonder what the results would have been if we had taken the same poll a couple of months ago.

Naah, you ignoramus troll. I think he'll touch 14 some day, like if Nadal gets injured, maybe even a french open (ok that's a bit much).

17. But who knows, things can change quickly in tennis.

16-18 is my opinion.

I think the 15th will be a decisive one, setting the tone of the possibility of more than that. 14 is the current open era record. Hence, winning one over 14 is going to be breaking the record set by Sampras - a lot of pressure for sure. If he gets 15, he is already in the history books. So, after 15 (if he gets to 15, that is), he will definitely be more relaxed. This translates to better tennis (unless he loses interest) which in turns means more realistic chances for more majors - at least that's a pretty good possibility if things go his way.

I think he'll win at least one more this year, and he will still be a factor in the slams for the next 2-3 years. I voted for 18, but I wouldn't be surprised if he won more

LOL,you delusional *******,clay's a young man's surface,there's no way that old Swiss geezer is gonna win a slam on it.He ain't touching Pete's record,simply because he doesn't deserve it.That he even got this close is due to weak draws,weak competition(he mostly plays clowns and bums),favourable schedules and most importantly anormous amount of luck.Now that his giant reserve of luck has run out and he's facing some real competition the mentally weak Swiss crybaby is done.

He has already won one career slam - how can he win more than one :confused:

In terms of Gran Slams, I think Fed will win 16 :D

well the past few days has shown us that roger is much more stronger then nadal both physically and mentally, and has much, much more talent then nadal too. But, if roger wins wimbledon and US Open this year, he should either retire, or start playing with a wooden racket, i would love to see that.

I hope Fed can do 20+, but I don't think he can, not realistic...

I hear you. 13 with an asterisk. No way he wins the French and former true greats like Laver, Sampras and Borg will be ashamed of shaking his hand and will never acknowledge him as one of them.

I think he'll take Wimbledon next month, riding the momentum from the FO win, and then it's hard to predict. Will his interest fade? He could settle in with the growing family and show up and eek out one a year for a couple years, and even that would put him at 17-18. Staggering.

i think that once nadal is back to one hundred percent he will cause federer never to win a slam again

Anywhere from 14 to 24. My likely guess is anywhere from 18 to 20. I will be cheering against him every step of the way though. I hate Federer.

His best case scenario would be:

Australian Opens- 5
French Opens- 3
Wimbledons- 8
U.S Opens- 8

His most likely is probably:

Australian Opens- 4
French Opens- 1
Wimbledons- 6 or 7
U.S Opens- 7 or 8

I must say, I respect you for being objective despite being a diehard Federer hater. Heck, I think you are abit too generous there, giving him such a large range.

I voted for 20.

At the end of 2009, he will already have 16.

The momentum and confidence he'll gain from that will be tremendous, and given good health, he'll probably win "at least" two again next year (he'll be 28 going on 29 by then), and, two more when he's 29 to 31.
