Hell no. Federer could play at 40% and still not let us win a single point.

I'd take that bet. Fed is amazing, no doubt. But over the course of 6 games, I'd get 24 opportunities to just win a point by some fluke. Fed could shank it, you could just go for winners no matter what, hit crazy moonballs followed up with drop shots. There's a point in there somewhere.

I play at 4.0 level.
Several years ago I once played an assistant coach of a D1 team; the guy was their main recruiter and then went on to become a head coach of another college team. We played for 10 or so minutes, maybe longer, completed 11 games and I won whole of 5 points.
A couple years ago I got to regularly practice with a dude who tried it on the ATP tour and didn't make it. My return of his serve rate was about 5% to 10%, as in just getting it on the other side.
Playing against pros or near-pros is an eye-opening experience.

I'd be going to jail. The only hope anyone would have is a double fault, and even then he'd just hit practice serves and top spin to give him huge percentages.

Hell no, and I wouldn't if I was 3.0 and up either. You may think that there's a shank or fluke in there somewhere, but Roger isn't going to have to rifle forehands anywhere near the tramlines to win. All he has to do is put a lot more spin on the ball than you could ever dream of and you'll mishit it.

Yes, but you were playing against them using your actual game. In a scenario like this, you could just hit ridiculous shots or use weird strategies just to eek out the one point.

Returning serve would be a bleak affair. But if you're a 4.5 or so with a decent serve, he won't hit a winner on EVERY return (plus Fed chips back most returns anyway). I still maintain I could get ONE point, though that may be it.

we can't hit enough pace or spin to cause shanks. he could hit at 30% power and still give most of us trouble. Hell, he could slice it only and beat us all.

Now whether you take the bet or not is a different story - would you risk a month in prison for a 1 in 10 chance of $250k? Some would, some wouldn't. But don't kid yourself on your odds.

There is no way Fed would win 24 consecutive points against me.

He would give at least 1 point and then I'd buy an Audi R8.

So he'd just stand right on top of the service line and hit return winners... he'd serve and volley so he could put away your 'tee offs' without having to move much, and hit winners off your drop shots, which you'd have a hard time doing because of his sheer weight of shot.

If he stood on the service line then I'd just hit a fast serve and get a free point as it hits him in the foot.

He wouldn't hit winners off my dropshot because I'm not the typical geriatric TTer and I'd pass him all day long if he served and volleyed. I would honestly probably take a game off him, muchless a point.

Right. guys in the top 100 in the world struggle to win games off of Federer on grass. but yet, somehow, the savior Nadalfan89 would be able to win a game off of Federer...

what ranking are you in the world, again? Because I mean, I've seen scorelines of guys in the 70's CRUSHING guys in the 300's, and so on and so forth.

But what do I know? I mean, he can't return the biggest serves for winners like this guy: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaIoB2RYKZg

Nope, playing my regular game didn't make me any good. I was trying to make ridiculous shots and several of them went in, but of those all but 5 came back.
As far as serving is concerned, I did ace the dude who couldn't make it on the ATP. Once in 2 years.
If I were to make a guess, I'd say one need to be at least a 5.0 with a powerful serve to take such bet.

If you have a first serve that can go around 110mph consistently (which usually means you're at least a 5.0) then I'd say there is a pretty good chance of winning a point. A very well placed 110pmh serve would be an ace or service winner at almost all levels but Fed would probably return it... still though, that return would likely be pretty soft, so you could go for a winner off of it.

Also, the original post doesn't mention what Fed's incentives are. Does he really need the golden set? If not, then I'd say winning a point is possible even for a 4.0 because he'd eventually get bored or take it easy. If he does have an incentive (like, he's the one who goes to jail if he loses a point!) then it gets a lot tougher!

I think your odds are about right.

Surface could also be a factor. I'm a strong 4.5 and I played a 6.0 rated player on clay in a tournament a few years ago. I legitimately won two games on my serve by hitting lines and getting a few lucky bounces. (One serve hit a nail on the line, and went over the fence!) Give me a crappy clay court or low bouncing grass court, and my odds of hitting a lucky shot to win one point against Federer on my serve would increase. I doubt I'd win any points on return, unless I shanked a ball off the net or something.

Personally, despite the odds, I'd take the bet. $250K would be worth the chance of getting lucky. Besides, I'm married and have a 45 to 50 hour per week job... so a month in prison wouldn't be that much different. (Office = Cell, Wife = Warden.)

Any half decent tennis player would take that bet.

You wouldn't be confident that if you hit EVERY single one of your serves as 1st serves (including hitting 2nds as 1sts), you couldn't force ONE point? Sheesh.

I wouldn't be bothering with rallies since he would win every point. I'd be slamming serves. Bound to get lucky with just ONE.

Show me the $250,000!!!

Has anyone here tried to win a golden set against someone much worse (say, a 5.0 against a 2.5) ? I'm pretty sure it would be a very difficult task, with some luck involved.

About 12 years ago, I was a 5.0 and I won a golden set against my brother-in-law.

He's about 5 years younger than me, and was a really great athlete in the traditional American sports like football, basketball, and baseball. At the time, he was in good shape, about 6'2" with the big biceps and washboard abs. In contrast, I'm only 5'10" and don't have a physique that resembles a pro athlete. However, he had only played tennis maybe 5 or 6 times ever, and I was a ranked Open player at the time.

As it transpired, we were watching some pro tennis on TV (US Open, I think) and he kept trash talking about how tennis wasn't a real sport and that he could kick my butt on the court. I finally had enough of it, so we grabbed some racquets and went down to a local court in the park. I wasn't trying to win a golden set, but just wanted to put him in his place. I never let up, and I ended up winning every single point. I did mix in a few flat shots, but I mostly hit a lot of heavy topspin and slice. He couldn't figure out the timing on the spin at all.

In the end, he was very humbled and he's never made fun of tennis (to me) since then.

Whenever I could get into a point (Not that that would happen) I'd hit a big moonball to his backhand side and try to rip a dead flat inside in forehand off of his reply. I doubt it would work anyway.

I believe a 5.0 would win at least one point about 50% of the time, and a 5.5 would win at least one point about 90% of the time.

Well, if I recall correctly (it's been a while since I've played in any sort of USTA league), a 7.0 is simply a professional tennis player. There are nearly 2,000 men who have an ATP ranking, so I would say there's about 2,000 7.0s (excluding retired professionals).

A 5.0 might win a point, a 5.5 being more likely, but I think your percentages are a little generous. Federer's spent years playing other 7.0s and beats most of them handily. What would a 5.0 or even a 5.5 have to trouble him? Federer's standard rally ball would be so heavy and deep that even a 5.0 would struggled to return it in any meaningful fashion (i.e. not simply leaving his next shot to be creamed).

Did you not see the video I posted? Federer can hit a medium pace ball for days, and that medium pace ball would be winning shots against virtually all of us. Even if it wasn't, our shots, no matter how big they are, wouldn't be big enough to trouble him. He can take shots in the 80mph range in the rise.. what hope do any of us have?

I don't think people realize the depth of the tennis world. There's been times where Federer only allows a handful of points to opponents in the top 100...and the guys in the 500-800 range in rankings can't hardly touch the top 100, who can't hardly touch top 10..

Well, there's definitely a chance. If a 5.0 has a particularly big serve, he might score a point with an unreturned serve or, say, a serve-volley off of a weak reply. Once the point starts, though, I don't see the 5.0 having any chance. As Feather said, a big shot for a 5.0 is not a big shot to Federer, and a normal shot for Federer is a big shot to a 5.0. If Federer was actually focused on making no errors, I don't think he would, because he wouldn't have to go for the kinds of shots he does against other pros. He could lay the ball in casually and still hit winners and force errors from the 5.0.

I wouldn't take the bet, personally, but I'm only a 3.5-4.0 (at least I was; I've barely played the last couple years).

And why not include retired pros? If they ranked in the top 200+ sometime during their career, my guess is that, if they kept in shape, they could win an ATP point or two five years after retirement, thus making them (for all intents and purposes) 7.0s. And that is a lot of guys to be talking about.

If a 5.0 or 5.5 wanted to win a point, they'd need a massive serve. I sincerely doubt anyone of that rating winning a point on his serve.

Heh, in that case he might end up getting a little nervous and choke a point or two!

The way I see it, from Federer's perspective, either he has no or little incentive to win every single point and he's bound to relax at some point/feel bad for the opponent. Or he has a strong enough incentive to play every point seriously but in that case he might get tight and choke.

On the other hand, an important factor no one has taken into account is the setting: packed house at Wimbledon which definitely makes things a lot worse for the contestant. Our hypothetical 5.0 will find it harder to serve well when everytime he tosses the ball he sees 100 faces staring at him!

I'd probably struggle to return his serve unless he faults and I get a look at a second serve. Even then it would probably have too much bite to control the return properly.

So the chance of me winning a point would have to be on my serve. My serve isn't too bad when I'm having a good day so I could probably sneak in a point or two I'd say.

Well, if I recall correctly (it's been a while since I've played in any sort of USTA league), a 7.0 is simply a professional tennis player. There are nearly 2,000 men who have an ATP ranking, so I would say there's about 2,000 7.0s (excluding retired professionals).

A 5.0 might win a point, a 5.5 being more likely, but I think your percentages are a little generous. Federer's spent years playing other 7.0s and beats most of them handily. What would a 5.0 or even a 5.5 have to trouble him? Federer's standard rally ball would be so heavy and deep that even a 5.0 would struggled to return it in any meaningful fashion (i.e. not simply leaving his next shot to be creamed).
I see what you mean, but people need to understand that a golden set is a very rare event. I'm a 5.0 (probably 5.5 if I train for a few months to get my mojo back), and there's no way I'd be confident to win a golden set against anyone, even 3.0s or lower. A double fault, missed return, or simply a very good or lucky shot/serve from the opponent is very likely to happen at least once in a set.

I'll take this chance. I don't think I can win a point based on skill, but everyone makes an error, and flukes happen. Maybe I can get my racket on his serve and it dies on the way over the net. Or just one good serve that he gets slightly caught off guard with. One month in jail or 250k. I feel as if Fed wouldn't want to send people to jail anyway so he'd give up a point ;)

I'd do it and hit first serves the whole match, trying to get just one ace.

What if the challenge is.. instead of a month in jail you lose your testes.

I would go to prison, because I cannot play tennis at all. But I just want to play tennis against Roger, and I'll take the prison time.

Also, I don't live in America or any other country, where inmates are treated like dogs.

Oh get over him seriously. Would you lick his sweaty feet and hairy chest for 250k? I'm guessing you would. No self respect.

I'm sure Roger will try a cheeky dropshot halfway that will land in the net, so sure, for $250k, why not?

$250,000 wouldn't be worth it to me. Not for the loss of an entire month serving behind bars. I would need a greater incentive being that my chances of winning a point might as well be zero. I would risk jail time for say, 3 Million... at least that way one could say the risk was worthwhile.
