    Roger as a goal keeper? The guy is quick and light on his feet, I would put him as a striker. Nadal on the other hand, he would be a left wing defender, have him in a role that roberto carlos had. Would be sensational

    Mirka was anything but fat when she got together with Roger.

    Roger should have married Justine Henin. That would be amazing.

    The real answer to this is of course that nobody knows, because the careers of so many would have been altered. Those guys have inspired some and convinced others they couldn't make it to the summit. Remove that and you don't have the same result at those slams.

    I would imagine Roddick would have won at least 3-4 Wimbledons (imagine the confidence he would get from winning them), and with the confidence he would win 2-3 US Opens and considering that he's made the semis of the Australian every odd numbered year, maybe 1-2 Australian Opens.. Roddick could have had 8 Slams.. I know that's a huge prediction, but you guys need to consider the little confidence boosters, from winning Masters Series tournaments and winning Grand Slams; Roddick has lost to Fed in so many Slams and Masters Series, and had he won a few, he could have gotten a legit career started...
