    There is absolutely no one else who can beat Federer in a grand slam final at the moment (Del Potro was a fluke imo), there has never been anyone else who can beat him on clay since 2005. This year Federer will win a second Roland Garros and finish up with 19 majors and the first Grand Slam in 40 years.

    Funny how that sounds like serious exaggeration when you read it for the first time. But come to think of it, it's actually very likely that he will do all that..

    He could potentially do it, but I'd think he would mess up somewhere like every year. Even if he wins RG, he might even lose Wimby to Roddick. And even if he wins Wimby, he will lose the US Open to some guy. If he ends up winning the next three slams, then great thinkg for him, he is still the GOAT. The only thing that will change, is that Nadtrolls will make excuses that Federer was only able to win the Callender Grand Slam since Nadal was injured!

    Fed will win 3 slams this year. Just like in 2004, 2006 and 2007.

    I highly doubt Fed will win the Grand Slam.

    Probably 1 more slam this year. It could be anyone of them. Probably Wimbledon.

    have you guys ever think for once if Roger didn't exist, Rafa wouldn't have this knee problems he's complaining? Maybe Roger's present is the reason Rafa is couldn't keep up with the competition. Roger pushed him to work too hard and his body break down.

    Roger is the reason all players on tour have achieved so little. Hewitt, Roddick, Safin, Nole, Murray, Del Po, Nadal, Davydenko, Soderling, Nalbandian, Baghdatis. Gonzo, etc. have underachieved because of Fed.

    One of the many glaring shortcomings of Nadal and his camp, they focus too much on Federer the other factors get overlooked.

    It may sound like trolling, but I think Roger has a shot. He has been pretty much unstoppable in slams, aside from a few isolated instances:
    1. Nadal in French Opens/1 Wimbledon
    2. Delpo in 09 USO
    3. Djokovic in 08 Aussie Open

    Does anyone think any of those players can beat him this year in a slam? Right now it doesnt look that way...

    Fed will bungle somewhere, and will lose at one of the slams. Too many variables, too many different surfaces. Not like in 1969 with all being grass or clay.

    Even if we suppose that nadal continue to have knee problems the whole year, which is not sure, how Fed is impossible to lose to someone else?
    Couldn't had have lost from Haas or Potro ta RG last year?
    From Roddick at wimbledon?
    From Davy at US open?
    How is it so sure that he will win all four (remaining 3) even with Nadal out?

    Obvious troll thread. It's not like Nadal is the only threat to Federer nowadays. Like others have already pointed out, he could have easily lost quite a few matches in all of his slam appearances last year. Even Berdych was up 2 sets to love at AO 2009...
    And I haven't yet heard about Nadal's retirement at all, btw. He's out for a month, he may well have a rusty start at IW/Miami, but come the clay season, he'll be the one to beat again. Pretty sure of that!

    Nadal's knees were in absolute perfect condition before he was straight setted by Murray who got straight setted by Federer.

    Thats right. Rafa had a good hard court run from before the US Open through the Aussie Open. He did good. No excuses.
