And, I see nobody but nobody playing today who can challenge him.

"Maybe" Nadal on clay but that is all. And, that is a big "maybe".

So, this gives Fed a clear field for a few years at least and perhaps
even five or six.

This is why I predict he will beat Sampras slam record of 14.

WHO is going to beat him ?

Tell me WHO ??????????

No there was not. Conners holds the record and it was like
3 years.

Five years is such a long time that any of the current crop of top
juniors could be top pros in that time frame. Also, the current crop of
rookies is looking good. Nadal, Gasquet, Berdych, Monfils, etc... They
are not consistent performers yet (Neither was Fed when he was 18-21)
but they are climbing the rankings fast. Once those kids supplant the
current top-10 which is filled with Fed's ***es, Fed MAY be in
trouble.

That "may" happen but I seriously doubt it will in the next 2 years.

And even then "if" it happens these guys "may" not be in the league of
Borg, Sampras, Federer and most likely will not be but more likely in
the Roddick, Hewitt, league and it will be simply more of the same
canon fodder for Fed.

But, even if they are in the Federer class they still have to deal
with Federer !

The odds of somebody coming up in the next few years who will
dominate Fed like he is dominating everyone else now is well, close to
zero.

But, even if he faces an equal competitor like himself which is
doubful you can stilll count on him to win 2 slams a year !

In that event, he still wipes out Pete's record in 5 years.

2 years ago, we'd have laughed at the idea Federer would dominate the way he
has. So, you never know when someone will come around to challenge him.

Of course it was year and rankings I meant. Don't be stupid.

BTW, Borg looks impressive on this - 46, 34, 20, 6, 2, 1.
What a true ***.

Gasquet will be a threat shortly ....personally I wouldn't mind
of Gasquet beat Fed, he's got a great beautiful game like Fed's.
A far more palatable possibility than Nadal winning with that ugly
game of his....

Fed's biggest risk is injury. So far he's been healthy. Also, he
doesn't play week in and week out, perhaps for just that reason.

To me, the Fed game looks like an major car crash waiting to happen. He
constantly lunges for stuff in order to defend. That can't be good for
the back. He whips that wrist a bit too much. That can't be too good
for that joint either. At some point he'll have to give up some of
those defending points he always goes for these days, especially if he
wants to remain injury-free.

Let me see if I understand you -- "If Federer doesn't stop winning so
much, he is going to be a loser."

That about right?

Cheers,
