Roger Federer GOAT - 20 Times Grand Slam Singles Champion


#341

I think Federer will win on Sunday. I can’t see Cilic beating him.


#342

Cilic has caused him problems before. Cilic hammered him in straight sets in the semi final of the 2014 US Open. The Great Man had to come from two sets down to beat Cilic at the Championship in 2016. Mind you in their most recent meeting in the Championship, the 2017 Final, the Great Man turned on a masterclass.


#343

Cilic was injured ffs. I think the Croat wins in four on Sunday. As much as I hate to say it he was going to beat Rafa the way he was playing before the GOAT retired


#344

If he’s anything about him he should be winning in 3.

Roger is almost 37 ffs sake


#345

Nadal knew he was going to lose so he pretended to be injured, that’s what the great John McEnroe reckons.


#346

Sounds like a fairly minor enough injury for Nadal. He’ll seemingly be good to play what was his next scheduled event in Acapulco in three weeks time.


#347

He didn’t want to lose to roger in another final so he faked the injury. :grinning:


#348

Best of luck to Roger this morning. He’s going to need it.


#349

I’d like to echo @GeoffreyBoycott’s post above.

This is Roger’s 1,339th match since he turned professional. Interesting stat below on his previous 1,338. Cc @Cicero_Dandi

Played - 1338
Completed - 1338
Quit/Bottled/Threw in the towel - 0


#350

That’s why he’s the GOAT


#351

Have you noticed that he speaks with an Irish brogue?


#352

Who has the better head to head?


#353

Incredible. The Great Man breaks Cilic in the very first game.


#354

Federer


#355

In Grand slam finals?


#356

Federer. Won the only previous meeting in the Championship final in 2017.

Double break for the GOAT here for a 3-0 lead.


#357

Not sure about that

@Cicero_Dandi?


#358

Nadal has the better head to head

23 vs 16

Fed not the GOAT then


#359

Federer leads 8-1 in head to heads.

Cilic only win at the 2014 US Open in the semi final.

The GOAT holds for 4-0.


#360

I’m talking about Nadal
