I think he can lose to anyone, but if I had to bet without knowing the draw, I'd still pick Fed to make all 4 QF. But sure, on a bad day there are guys ranked 12-16 and below he can lose to. Gasquet on clay, Haas on clay or grass, Karlovic or Isner on any surface in which they take away his racquet and sneak a couple of tiebreaks.

Also, if he PLAYS all the Slams next year, he'll equal Wayne Fereira's 56 straight Slam appearances.
I think he'll definitely play every Slam till Wimbledon 2014. I wouldn't be too surprised if he retires anytime after that, but I would be if he retires any sooner.
