    OK now obviously there's a lot of permutations you can come up with (different players getting through earlier rounds), but I'm just looking at the semi-finals and the finals.

    Here is what the draws would potentially look like in the final of each grand slam, had Fed not have been playing. In each final I've just replaced Fed with the player he beat in the semi-final, I know that's not fully accurate, but it's as close as you'll get to what the finals would have been

    I've also added the grand slam finals in which Federer lost, could a different player potentially have won any of these finals?

    This is just a bit of fun!! To see where the slams may have potentially gone.

    Predict the champions:

    Australian Open 2004

    Juan Carlos Ferrero vs Marat Safin

    Australian Open 2006

    Nicolas Kiefer vs Marcos Baghdatis

    Australian Open 2007

    Andy Roddick vs Fernando Gonzalez

    Australian Open 2009

    Andy Roddick vs Rafael Nadal

    French Open 2006

    David Nalbandian vs Rafael Nadal

    French Open 2007

    Nikolay Davydenko vs Rafael Nadal

    French Open 2008

    Gael Monfils vs Rafael Nadal

    French Open 2009

    Juan Martin del potro vs Robin Soderling

    Wimbledon 2003

    Andy Roddick vs Mark Philippoussis

    Wimbledon 2004

    Sebastien Grosjean vs Andy Roddick

    Wimbledon 2005

    Lleyton Hewitt vs Andy Roddick

    Wimbledon 2006

    Jonas Björkman vs Rafael Nadal

    Wimbledon 2007

    Richard Gasquet vs Rafael Nadal

    I don't, and i'm a fan of him, he's a multi-millionaire with a hot wife. I envy him for that.

    Rubbish, you don't feel for Roddick, you're filled with joy that Federer has won all those Major's. :)

    No way is phillipousis taking wimbledon 2003. Switch Roddick's 2003 with 2005. I have a feeling hewitt would have won 05 but Roddick 03.

    Roddick would have beat Philopousis.
    Hewitt beats Roddick in 05
    Cant see Henman beating Hewitt for a slam on a HC
    Cant see Del Po not taking out Djoker the way he played
