I am desperate for him to break the Borg/Sampras record of 8
consecutive years with winning at least 1 slam.
 
 
 

Will Federer win a slam in 2011?

I really thought he would win at least one (and possibly two) slams
this year, based on his form at the YEC. Then he looked great again at
Doha. But after watching him lose convincingly to Djoker the last two
matches, my hopes are waning. He refuses to alter his strategy and
come to the net.

I believe Fed can win 2-3 more slams in his career, but the cards will
have to fall right: weak draw, rain delay between semis and finals at
the USO one year... things like that.

And if he comes to the net and loses faster?  What will you say then?

Would the "tennis federation" have a say in that?

Maybe it's time to come to terms with the idea that Federer is not a
slam contender any longer.

Dr.GroundAxe said Federer won't win another slam more than three years
ago.

Whisper nailed that prediction in 2003 for sure and probably even
earlier than that.

"And if he comes to the net and loses faster?  What will you say
then?"

Then I will respect him more because it will show he has foregone the
arrogance and will listen to what every major tennis strategist has
said for the past 4 years.

McEnroe, Becker, Wilander, Edberg, Pete, Andre, Connors, Henman and
countless non-tennis player analysts are unanimous: he cannot win from
the back of the court anymore (against the best players).

So if Fed changes his game and still loses, at least he goes down
FIGHTING.

*Cannot*?  That's quite an exaggeration.

IMO, Fed cannot win against Nadal from the back of the court.

All of them said that? Cannot? Let's see those linkies or it never happened.
