Who will beat Federer's grass court streak?
I can't think of any!
He can only beat himself but one day a lucky opponent will present himself.
Sampras in his miracle comeback - 2007, the Summer of Pete!
you heard it here folks
End his streak? Or beat the number of 48 plus however many more wins in a row...I don't know who will beat his streak, but I doubt it will be anyone that we have heard of to date.
I like this answer. I love this kids game. If he gets his legs under him for a few five setters, he's the next big guy on tour.
I have to agree, Gasquet wil be the one to end Roger's grass domination. It just won't happen until 2008.
A big server or good serve and volleyer in an early round--seemingly the only time Federer is ever vulnerable in a tournament.
federer's streak won't be broken till at least 2008 or 2009. Right now there is absolutely no competition. No one to even take federer to 5 sets on grass. Sure nadal was close, but his game won't last him long against others on grass courts. Gasquet seems like a fair answer but he's still got a long long way to go. He is especially young, so thats good for him. But don't be looking for a new wimbledon champ anytime soon.
Nadal, in 2008 when the grass will be as slow as clay. :mrgreen:
His biggest risk is Halle playing best-of-3, not Wimbledon. He's had a couple of very tight matches the last two years in Halle against Soderling, Gasquet and Safin so to say he has no competition on grass is exaggerated.
I agree! If his streak will end, it is in Halle not Wimbledon!
He plays only 2 tournaments on grass every year so it´s likely he can continue with his streak for a long time but not playing so many matches.
O. Rochus had several match points against him in Halle. Gasquet had also a good chance to beat him in Halle. It´s harder in Wimbledon playing the best of 5 sets.
Only a huge server like JJ has a chance. Gasquet only causes problems for Fed when he can consistently keep the ball high to his backhand, which is hard on grass. Gasquet was no trouble at all for Fed at W this year. I dont really see anyone beating Fed the next few years, unless he defeats himself.
