OK now obviously there's a lot of permutations you can come up with (different players getting through earlier rounds), but I'm just looking at the semi-finals and the finals.

Here is what the draws would potentially look like in the final of each grand slam, had Fed not have been playing. In each final I've just replaced Fed with the player he beat in the semi-final, I know that's not fully accurate, but it's as close as you'll get to what the finals would have been

I've also added the grand slam finals in which Federer lost, could a different player potentially have won any of these finals?

This is just a bit of fun!! To see where the slams may have potentially gone.

Predict the champions:

Australian Open 2004

Juan Carlos Ferrero vs Marat Safin

Australian Open 2006

Nicolas Kiefer vs Marcos Baghdatis

Australian Open 2007

Andy Roddick vs Fernando Gonzalez

Australian Open 2009

I don't, and i'm a fan of him, he's a multi-millionaire with a hot wife. I envy him for that.

Roddick would have beat Philopousis.
Hewitt beats Roddick in 05
Cant see Henman beating Hewitt for a slam on a HC
Cant see Del Po not taking out Djoker the way he played
