    Hmm beat Canas and Nadal without dropping a set? No way!
    Beating Robredo, Davydenko and Djokovic without dropping a set? Possible.

    i doubt it....he can make it to the final without dropping a set, but if he faces nadal, its a 4 or 5 setter for sure

    at wimbledon he can likely do it, unless he drops a set to like, hewitt or roddick or someone in the 4th rd/qtrs

    us open is pretty much the same....he might drop a set in the qtrs like last year to blake, otherwise its usually 1-2 dropped sets by federer on a non-clay slam

    no lack of competition, he is just good enough to make em all look like nobodys.

  6. SERIOUS lack of competition, don't even joke. :p Who out there is even good minus Federer and Nadal? Nobody. At all. It's an era of jokers.

    There is no evidence whatsoever to back this up. You can't compare eras.

    The fact that veterans like Moya, Henman, Bjorkman, etc. make deep runs in major tournaments is a testament to how horrid this era really is.

    Look at Hewitt and Roddick's H2H against Sampras.

    This in and of itself proves very little. I bet you could find other veterans making deep runs in major tournaments all throughout the open era.

    The chance is very low because

    - Fed won't aim to win all straight set matches. He won't mind losing 1 set here or there in the initial rounds.

    - In the FRench, it will be nearly impossible to win all straight set matches.

    well, hopefully not, so he can win all 4.

    you need to taste some loss to be your best.

    I know the guy is good but I think that would be asking a lot. But stranger things have happened over the years.
