skeezer Says:

Hopefully Fed will pass Lendl for 2nd all time this year? Passing 1000 however in the supposed “strong era” will be monumental!
Stay healthy, stay motivated.

Dr Robert Pasahow Says:

It is amazing that Federer would reach that level. This is a man who keeps playing at this level of tennis even though he has 4 young children.
Obviously,we can’t all be like Federer. However, Perform at Peak ( incorporates acupressure in the coaching method such that players substantially improve in a short period of time. This is important and needs to be incorporated into USTA and ATP as Americans clearly have fallen off being the best players in the world. What recommendations do people have for improving results of American tennis players?

RZ Says:

@Skeezer – 75 wins might be a few too many for this year but definitely in the realm of possibility if he has a similar year to 2014 when he won 73 matches. In any case, I would expect he matches/passes Lendl in 2016 if not 2015.
