After his epic final against nadal at Wimbledon 2008 ı had thought that he wouldnt reach 15 slams ever. However, just after one and half year he has 16 now.

You cant really write off this guy, but it feels to me like he cant reach the number 20. I predict he will win 1 or 2 wimbledon and one us open more.

What are your predictions ?

Depends on how long he plays. I think at least 18 really. Because I can see him go 3 out of 4 this year. But I'm not sure. I'd go with 18-19 right now.

2 years ago, I thought/said that 18 would be his max, but now, 2 years down the line, I think 20 it certainly a realistic possibility.. :shock:

I'm gonna say 18 or 19. I think he'll match or best Martina, but won't get to 20.

It's so crazy that now he's chasing women's records, haha.

Depends on how long will Federer play and if he can keep it up that he is doing right now. I will go with 20+.

I dont even count women's record as a worthing records to be chasing in terms of men competition.

Therefore, there is no need to mention he is still chasing something.

Yeah, and he's chasing Jack Nicklaus too. My prediction after Wimbledon was 18, but I do think 19 or 20 can happen.

To be perfectly honest, I think Fed can win the calendar year slam PROVIDED HE DOES NOT RUN INTO NADAL

Because Nadal is the only one he's afraid of.

Federer's great ally has been his seemingly impervious body to injury. It's allowed him to retain the great consistency his been winning 16 majors with. His hunger is as great as ever, his game is still of major winning quality. I've never been one for predictions but if Fed stays the course I don't see why he can't reach the 20 mark. Remember, this guy has been breaking records left and right, making it highly plausible for him to become the only man to reach 20!

After he won his 15th I thought he would win only one more. Now I don't know anymore, he could reach many more at this stage. Maybe his goal is to reach 20?

It is his consistency which keeps him healthy-- his tactical forehand... his footwork (the best I've ever seen)... how he plays to his opponents weaknesses and his ability to concede the points which he cannot win and go for the shots that he knows he can win... he conserves his energy on-court and plays a true finesse game.

He will obtain a 'grand' slam this year-- all four slams in the calendar year.

Just hope he doesn't follow Tiger Woods' path in his personal life.. it's just all too easy for him.. ;)

After losing the 2008 Wimby I thought Fed would end up with 17, at the time his game seemingly was declining. He's still not at 17 but his level of play at this AO final was very high, hitting the ball clean, the BH was looking good, moving well and no mental lapses.
Fed should be in contention for a few more years since if he's at this level now his level shouldn't decline a great deal anytime soon.
On the other hand it going to be tough, Potro, Murray, Nole are far from finished.

I went with 20 GS's.

a stretch.

19-20 seems about right.
You think another Aussie is a stretch? He dropped two sets in this entire tournament and made mincemeat of his semifinal and final opponents, beating 5 seeded players and 3 top ten players. You think his level is going to drop so drastically in one year?

And while I don't expect Federer to win another French, he has a good shot this year if Nadal is still as shaky as he has been the last few months.

Depending how how long he wants to play for, 20+ is well within reach - if he plays 3 more seasons, then 20 is very achievable, all depends if he is still enjoying tennis. This year, could win Wimbledon and maybe US Open depending - French all depends on who he happens to come up against. His level as shown at Aus Open is still better than anyone on tour, and with Nadal's body being as fragile as Murray's mind, could be another awesome year for Fed.

Federer is getting old. Sampras retired at age 29, fed is now 28. I would say 20 GS is a blessing and also a realistic goal. But I can just as easily see him with 18 as the younger guys are emerging with very good talent potential.

Pete's last match was soon after he turned 31. He and Fed were both born in August. I have always thought Fed would retire in 2012. That would put him into retirement soon after turning 31, just like Pete. So, 11 more slams to play. I say he picks up two more and goes to 18.

18-19 I think. If he reaches 20 or more, that would be crazy, but hey, with Roger I would be a fool to bet against him.

His grass game is far too good to not be competitive in the next few years. Not many have given him a run for his money at Wimbledon.
 
I voted 18-19, but after the AO last year, I thought he'd be lucky to win 14, so it's impossible to count him out.

If he stays healthy, he could easily win 20+.

Sampras retired at 32. Remember the 2002 US open with him and Agassi in the final. He was born August 12 1971. The '02 Us open started August 26. He didn't play much if at all in the year after that and then officially announced his retirement prior to the 03 US open.

If Nadal's knees keep bothering him, Djokovic, Murray and Delpo seem to be the only troubles he would have at a slam. But we saw how easy he dispatched Murray, and I'm not sure he'll lose to Delpo again after all that crap that happened at the USO.

18-20 is a realistic range. Man Fed plays some amazing tennis. As long as Fed is playing he is going to be a contender for slams. He could be 10 in the world and still be a favorite for Wimby.

You meant how many slams total in the poll. The poll seems to suggest that he will add 17 slams or more to his current count lol.

Yeah but I got the gist of it. He meant how many total Slams will Federer wind up winning.

I went in for 20+, I mean it's hard to believe that he would fall apart in the next two years, I just don't see that happening. He said he'll probably play another 3 years, so don't count on him retiring until at least 2012 barring some sort of major injury.

He already won his 16th yesterday, and I'd be hard pressed not to put him at 17 or 18 before the year's end, he's got to be a lock to win Wimbeldon for the 80th time... You'd have to figure he's got a good chance to win the French or even US Open, as he made all 4 Major finals last year, and it starting out on the right track this year.

Basically if he wins an average of 2 Slams a year for the next 3 years, he'll be at 21 for his career. So I'd say by the end of the US Open in 2012, he should have at least 20-22 total Grand Slams barring injury or early retirement.
