    Barring injury, probably wimbledon 2008 or U.S Open 2008.I wished it was the FO 2008,lol.I hope he wins the U.S Open this year.People think that might come easy but it might be tough.One thing i will say, i thought he would be unbeatable at wimbledon but since they are slowing it, i think the U.S Open might be the slam where he is tough to beat.

    I vote for Wimbledon 2k8. I don't think Federer can win the FO unless Nadal is taken out by someone else or doesn't play.

    When Federer equals Sampras' record for the number of slams, he will actually have surpassed Sampras in many ways. Far better performance at French Open (even without any wins), more consecutive weeks at number 1, etc

    I voted for 2008 US open. I have no doubts that he will reach 14 grand slams.

    If everything goes well, it will be by 2008, most likely USO08. If he fails by 2008, then it will be tough for him.

    I think Federer wants clear daylight between Sampras & himself, so he'll probably be hoping for like 17/18 GS.
