    I'm a fan of Federer, but I don't think he has anymore slams left in him. Hope he proves me wrong though.

    I had a (horrible) dream last night where I realized the Wimbledon final between Murray and Djokovic was actually only a semi final, and Djokovic went on to play Federer in the final afterwards (I have no idea why Djokovic advanced to the final even though he lost the match).

    Federer won the final 2 sets to 1 (for some reason a Wimbledon final was only best of 3).

    Djokovic's side of the court was elevated way up in the sky, so the match consisted of Federer lobbing balls really high up in the air to reach it.

    I think that he still could win another major and I do expect him to at least reach some majorsmore semis at. Missing the later stages of just one major is not enough for me to say that Federer probably won't win any more majors at all. If Federer starts consistently missing the later stages of majors, then I may be convinced, but I'm not there as of yet.

    I don't want to write Federer off just yet. I think he has at least one more Wimbledon left in him.

    Never say never but it does look like Wimby '12 might well prove to be his final Slam victory.
    Depending on the draw he might get one more, but at 32 that window is closing.

    If he's going to win one, it would be this year's US Open. Age has caught up with him, events were very much in his favour to land that Wimbledon 2012, with the semi-final and final turned into indoor matches and Nadal missing, and he hadn't won a slam for two years before that. He has however been very unfortunate against Djokovic in two US Open's, so it would appear he could still take down anyone there.

    Personally I don't see it, but if there was one he could win it would be this year's USO.

    Your point is? Who says he'll have to beat Novak to win another anyway.

    I said 1 more at the USO btw. Not necessarily this year (although I hope so), but I just have a suspicion that he's done winning Wimbledon, and his next most likely win is at the USO which he hasn't won since 2008.

    Like I said in other thread, he depends on draws and luck. Somewhat like Andy got at this Wimbledon. We all know he can win a GS final against Djokovic or Andy (not Nadal, of course).

    So, will he ever get a draw that easy ? Probably not, so my answer is a defintely no.

    Lol what's funny is that Djokovic never played Fed @ that Australian Open.

    If you showed his reaction from the 2008, 2011 Aussie Opens or the 2010 or 2011 US Opens, then it would illustrate your point a bit better.

    I smell one more grand slam title on hardcourt, maybe Aussie, but to me US Open seems more likely. Sure Fed has to deal with heavy hitters like Berdych and Tsonga, but on the flip side its easily one of the more promising avenues that can help him elevate his game what with court speed.

    Sadly, I do not think he has another slam in him and he might not even get to another slam final. He has clearly declined, although still playing at a pretty high level, but the field right now is just so tough that I can't see him breaking through. If he were playing at this level in 2002 around the time that Sampras won his last slam, I could definitely see him breaking through and winning another slam or two before retiring.

    Course. With his new racket, he will be blasting 110 MPH winners all over the place and be an unstoppable force. He's going undefeated from now until age 35, you can count on it.

    It's tough to say no, but no is the most likely answer.
    Murray has hit his peak (but Fed will always be a threat to Murray), Djokovic is still in his and disregarding Nadal's early exit at Wimbledon, I believe Nadal is pretty much as strong as he was when he left in 2012. And Delpo just might be back as a serious contender. Plus Tsonga is as good as ever with Rasheed and Berdych is playing pretty solid too - all guys who can trouble him.

    All put together - the odds are not on Fed to win another one, but it can happen if he gets his act together and catches a break in the draw.
