    No. There is a greater chance of Donald Young winning 1 slam then Federer winning 30 slams.

    30 yikes, even devout Fed fans can't even commit to such massive number. I see him with maybe 18 or 19, but not 30.

    How dare you trash-talk TMF!!

    40 slams are easily within his reach; maybe even 50 if all goes well. To even question whether he will get to 30 is blasphemous.

    Maybe if he takes HGH causing his head to increase in size, an increase in height at age 30, and a huge increase in muscle mass, ala Barry Bonds.

    the sad thing is that 46 people voted yes :shock: Fed will be lucky to get 18, to get 20 is even kind of pushing it. But anything is possible.

    Most Definetly YES. 2009 US Open is in the bag so thats 16 and now that he has broken the french Open curse, he will complete 5 calender slams for the next 5 years so it will give him 36 slams. so in short the answer is yes.

    he can be happy for every other GS title he's taking home. not sure whether he will win one more at all. would say 17, maybe 18 is a realistic number.

    No. Will any other active players win 30 slams? No. No 30 slams for anyone unless some time in the future there's a deadly disease that leaves only a few players standing.

    Yes.
    Imagine a big event organized by ATP that is held in a Hilton hotel for example.
    All top 100 players are present except Federer who for some reason is a little late.
    Then an enormous bomb explodes placed by al caida, brings down the whole building and everyone is gone except from Fed.
    Then federer wins another 17 slams untill 2013 and reaches 32 overall.

    i gotta go with a big resounding no.

    i think 17 is his career max, he will retire by the end of next year due to family concerns.

    He could play doubles and reach that number. McEnroe did that for so many years ... I think it was 1996 when he won Wimbledon doubles with Stich.

    I am going to apporach this idiotic question from a logical point of view.

    Fed has 15...half way to 30.

    If fed were to win the next 15 slams in a row it would the year 2013 and the slam he would be winning to get 30 is the 2013 French Open. Fed would be well into his early 30s..and lets be real winning what would be 18 slams in a row is unrealistic unless the rest of the field drops dead. So lets move on to the next option.

    Fed wins 3 slams a year. Okay he wins the US Open this year that gives him fourteen more to go so that requires four more 3 slams seasons and 1 2 slam season..hmm we are even further now and it is 2014. He is 33 years old then..yes Connors did however win 2 slams at 33. However if Fed is supposed to be winning 3 slams a year for the next 4 years that would be unrealistic and well I don't see how it is possible.

    Say he wins 2 a year..so he doesn't win the us open..he needs 8 seasons than. so thats 2017...(2016 if he pulls out a US Open win this year) So he is now 35 or 36 and supposed to be consistent enough in his 30s to win 2 slams a year. EVen in eras when there was less of a physical toll on the body the greats like Laver, Rosewall and Tilden were not champions into their mid 30s. They could pull a good run but not dominating the tour.

    So frankly the answer is no. It is hard enough for Fed to get to 20 at the moment and getting to 30 would be unrealistic. He would have won 7 1/2 years worth of slam titles. That is intense.

    I am going to apporach this logical question from an idiotic point of view.

    Fed has 15...half way to 30.

    The undisputed best player in the world, Nadal, is injured, and we don't know for sure when he'll be back 100%.

    The others are vastly overrated and overhyped, and content with leftovers. e.g., Murray and Joker. Then there are Fed fans like Delpotro and Monfils who would starve rather than snatch a slam title from him.

    Davydenko is the only real threat (refer Breaker's excellent analysis) but he's getting old and tends to choke against Fed (being another Fed worshipper).

    Tsonga, Haas etc - too streaky, often injured ...

    Then there is the known fact that all of Fed's draws are cakewalks, the crowds are with him, the courts are prepared in his favor, not to mention the weather/roof/altitude/air pressure/gravity etc.

    The above factors should easily see him winning another 15 slams.
