    This is the year Federer shocks the world. He will not lose in a grand slam the rest of the year. His forehand is too fast, his backhand pass is robotic and his defense is legend. Federer is on a roll recently--and theres no one that stands in his way of winning the next 3 slams. Nadal had no answer for Federer's forehand in Madrid--whats to say Nadal will this tournament. Roger's class and dignity are what demoralizes opponents. Opponents come in with a big head-but then are subsuquent on Roger showing them how to play. Federer's forehand is too lethal--Everyone watch highlights on Nadal and Federer in Madrid on Youtube and you will see just how big Roger's forehand is at this point of the year.

    I am a Federer fan, but there is no need to give out these bold statements.

    Federer's forehand is sure big, but it's nowhere near as consistent as it was. It used to be a winner machine. Nowdays it's more of an error machine. I wish you right buddy, but your post is not realistic.

    If he wins RG and beats Nadal at his own game then there's a good chance he'll get Wimby and the US. However, despite Fed looking quite good lately, it's a big ask to win 3 out of 4 slams. It's a big ask just to win the French when Nadal is there.

    I'd love to see it happen but somehow, I doubt it will.

    I remember him going into the FO in years past in much better shape than he is currently. Is he a contender? Certainly. But I don't think he's as big of a threat as he's been in the past.

    Why does every post about Fed from Conquistador always has to have the word class in it?

    I would be happy to see him regain the Wimby title and/or USO. But FO? Why not?!

    I agree that Fed is really going for the shots right now, very agressive with the serve and FH. No hesitating, all out.

    If he faces Nadal in the final, he could be very dangerous, mabe a win..

    but really, i dont think he can play like this and winning againsts the king of clay

    The magician doesn't think roger was robotic and I agree with him. He will be missed on tour.

    Roger is perhaps unstoppable at this point of the season. You see Roger is better than anyone at getting vengence for his losses. You can look at his history of what he has done to opponents after a loss. Wimbledon and AO have rattled Federer to a point where he can no longer bear. And the one tournament that stands in his way of glory, is the French Open. Federer is a symbol of class, a legacy of excellence, and a story of legend. Federer not winning the French Open is not in his vocabulary. This is the tournament that Federer is putting the world on his back--and saying "This is for my place, my place, as the best player ever, If I win I will be enshrined, if I lose my legacy will be tarnished" Roger Federer will be ready for the world but, Is the world ready for Roger Federer?"

    Your writing is so funny to read. Are you a leader of RF cult of something? That's fine with me. I think Fed can win FO this year if and only if he does: 1) serve very well, 2) tighten up his forehand, which at times makes me cringe when I watch him play, 3) take chances when he has breakpoints (Damn it, don't bunt the fu_ _ k_ ng ball back so Nadal can put it away. Run around the backhand and go for it, in or out at list it's on his racket. and 4) play smart aggressive tennis, similar to watch he did at Madrid.

    I think Fed has a chance considering how poor Nadal has played in round 1 and 2.

    But I am not going as far as writing those things about Fed. Of course, you qualify if you are a cult leader. Kidding man.

    Federer squeezed one tourney over the last 8 months and here you are. Why don't you try getting some medical help to get rid of fedomania? Or learn something about tennis? Primarily RG history. ExFed will be exterminated by Djok in SF.

    I genuinely can't tell whether Conquistador is serious and is a Roger Federer cultist or is simply getting a kick out of jerking people around.

    Isn't Bud Collins the guy who called Berdych 'beer dick'? I think that's the correct way to pronounce it though... :p.

    Why does Conquistador have to start Fed posts everyday ?

    I am laughing too hard to say anything intelligible.

    Instead of thinking about how supposedly ridiculous this post is, and how Federer has been playing in the past year...
    Think about if he could have won the French in previous years if he used the right tactics...

    I made a bold statement and everyone laughed. Looks like I was right all along. You see you have to study the game to know what I know..Nadal played terrible against Federer at Madrid..Therefore I expected Federer to win past Nadal at the French. You see Federer is in form and his forehand is way to big for anyone to defend it. I said Federer WILL NOT lose a grand slam match the rest of the year-and everyone laughed.
