That is 5 Grand Slam titles since losing the epic to Nadal.


Here's hoping he hits 20 before he's done.

GOAT, so happy for Fed. Love watching this guy when he's on form, his game is so silky smooth and a pleasure to watch. Credit ti Murray he started strong but I think he lost his composure later in the game. His serve was terrible all game and Federer pounced on his second serves.

Cannot believe he's #1 in the world again. I love it.

Highly doubt he reaches 20. Two and a half years since his last title and its not going to get any easier.

It could get a bit easier. Won't necessarilly have to go through Nadal and Djokovic like he has had to.

But agree that I don't think he reaches 20.

Federer is the definition of class and although I wanted Murray to win I am still very happy for Roger.

Really feel for Murray. You could see how much he put into this. I hope he wins a grand slam someday; he deserves it.

Having said that, Federer is so good it's not even fair.

Murray is just unfortunate to be playing in such a strong era. Best ever to not win a Slam?

Federer proved today why he's the best. As much as I don't like the man, he's the GOAT and it's not really close.

Think that's a bit of a discredit to Sampras even though I agree that he is the games best.

As an all-surface, all-rounded player, I'd say it's not very close.

Sampras was a great player whose serve made him elite. Federer has no weaknesses. People say it's his backhand? A backhand that's still better than pretty much everyone else in the world's. Some weakness.

Believe it or not, Federer has been better the last years as oppose to 2010-2011.

Not saying his chances are probable, but I think he definitely has decent chance at the U.S. and Australian.


Agassi won two Aussie titles at 31 and 34.

Federer is just incredible to watch. I hope he can get to 300 weeks at #1 and push his Grand Slam total to 20. He now has 6 more Grand Slams than Nadal and 12 more than Djokovic. Even if he stays at 17 I don't think either of those 2 will be able to make up that much ground.

Agreed, Rafa wont win more than 15 and Novak I think will be shy of 10. Congrats to Rodger. Now he has a chance to face Nadal finally in the US Open Semi's.

How could it get easier?

1. Djok vs 3. Fed
2. Nad vs 4. Murray

Now it will be

1. Fed vs 3 Nad
2. Djok vs 4 Murray

Is it always 1-3 and 2-4 on each side of the bracket? Plus the seedings don't always reflect the actual rankings.
