2nd round match in Qatar, potential for a good match or will Federer destroy him?
federer will destroy him
Potential for a good match. I think they are even in their head-to-head.
I was actually giving some thought to this, then I said to myself Tour90 is right, Rusedski has no chance. Unless a miracle happens....
Don't count Greg Out!!!
Not the draw I wanted. If he beats him, wow, what a confidence builder for 2005. I would give a 7 to 1 chance. Federer is just that complete.
Roger Federer has skill and has gained a lot of momentum. Rukedski doesn't stand a chance
Well, Greg played his best and lost. Federer is just so complete. He is the next Pete Sampras. His reign will continue and maybe be longer than Pistol Pete's.
Fed's playing Lopez next. Fed's forehand against Lopez's slice backhand. This should be an easy one for Federer.
Has any pro ever gone undefeated?
Probably never will happen. Way too hard given the competition and the grind of the ATP Tour.
That means you win every tournament that you enter which would wear down your body. It would be amazing if it were to happen but I can't imagine anyone that could win Hamburg (clay), Roland Garros (clay), a grass tune-up (i.e. Stella Artois), and Wimbledon all within 6-7 weeks.
If that sounds hard, that also means that you go undefeated in the Masters Series (Super 9).
That almost DID happen, last year.
Actually he won Halle not Stella but same diff.
Martina nearly did it. After Serena mentioned it, all downhill
All hail King Fed. No one else seems to have a chance.
But then again, there are the Fed, I mean, the Red Sox.
True, Shaolin....he was close...in a way...some others...Mcenroe, Lendl etc. have come very close also!
Of course...it's still so extremely improbable....when all it takes is that one loss no matter how many wins you have...unlikely to happen.
It can be done if a pro plays limited tournaments. J/K
Gee....if he wins Qatar and quits for the year.....another record! Undefeated for the year!
Another one for the record books!
I don't have the actual data here, but didn't Martina Navratilova have a 1-loss season back in '84? I remember her losing to Kathleen Horvath at the French, but I can't remember any others that year.
Hey! What about ME!
I can promise all of you, I'm not going to lose a single ATP match this year! ^_^
0 for 0! How about that?
I've heard McAnroe lost only 3-4 matches in 1 year(maybe 1984?)
McEnroe was 82-3 in 1984. http://espn.go.com/classic/biography/s/McEnroe_John.html
He should have won the French that year, too.
Yes, actually he was virtually unbeatable that year...he had clearly elevated himself above the pack in a very similar way to Fed last year. He really could have won a grand slam that year...but that's the way it goes....
