Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.
« on: February 13, 2013, 01:58:51 PM »
Quote from: Clay Death
This will become the mother of all sports quests in modern sports. it will be known going forward simply as "The Quest".

can he snatch a total of 100 titles before he hangs up his racquets? is that a viable goal for him to have?

and also what about 20 slams now that 17 are in the bag?


i know he wants slams but slams dont come easy after 30. he will be one of the exceptions obviously if it happens. where do you see his best chance at another slam? could it be on the u.s. open surface?

somebody won a french open at 31 for instance? what was his name? that is your question of the day. here is a hint: he was 6 foot 5 and he was a left hander.

muscles (rosewall) was making the finals of slams at some ridiculous old age. so if you have the talent and you can keep up on the fitness front you can certainly show up in the finals of slams.

Can he get to 90 titles is the more accurate question? I think he might have one more slam left in him.
Then we will fight in the shade.

i think he said he was trying to keep 100 titles in mind. it is what keeps him going.
 
he loves the sport and he loves to compete.

i am thinking 77 is going to happen in rotterdam. and the on to #78 in dubai.
 
less than 15-17 titles in the next 5-6 years is not all that far fetched.

sure, let's glorify and worship Fed some more  :har-har:. I'm sure Dallas will be beyond excited. You'd be better off to talk about New King Djokovic who will win around 20 slams, 10 WTF, 3 CGYS, 500 weeks as #1  :flex: :Bleh: :Bleh: :Bleh:. Fed who?
respectfully,
Alex
just love messing with Fed fans  :ice cream:

At Roland Garros 2012, Federer himself talks about 100 titles... go to about 2:10 of this clip


Another conversation after 2012 Wimbledon between Roger Federer and Mike Tirico of ESPN.

Near the end (2:50) the video mentions this legendary thread's topic :)

that idea came from me, general javier, and general masterclass.

media and press regularly scan these forums for ideas.

so they read our dicusssion one day and 2 days later they went to ask roger about the possibility of 100 titles.

roger is likely to use it as motivation to keep going.

i also believe he will compete on the tour until he is about 43-44.

I wish Fed luck, but 100 titles ain't happening. It's just not realistic, and I don't think Fed cares that much about it. He reduced his schedule and he'll be focusing on majors which is a smart move.

I saw this thread on MTF  :cool:

I don't think it's possible unfortunately. It will take a huge effort just to win this one title in Rotterdam.
