No way. JesusServe saves his ass on the fast surfaces. Only slam he
could lose before the SF is the FO where his JesusServe is useless....

contrary to what you guys think, imo when it happens it will on one of
the hard court slams.

Very few have a game to beat Fed (and Nadal) on clay unless his legs
are completely fatigue-shot.
Hardcourts is a different area altogether. It's brimming with players
with shotmaking talent. Most of Fed's non-Nadal losses in 2007 and
2008 have come on hard-courts and it's a matter of time before it
spills over into the slam.

The vast majority of the tournaments is played on HC. So I think that is
the main explanation for your findings.

PS.

I think there's a good chance it happens at the French. Depends on his
draw.

This year either Murray or Nole will beat him at the French in the semis...
Unfortunately nobody is good enough to beat him to stop his semi streak...

If it is to happen somewhere, it is at the French. I don't see him
losing to anyone but Nadal at Wimby yet. And he has a lot of confidence
at US Open.

PS.

I think he's hoping and preferring to meet pete sampras whose ass he
has already kicked at the world championships.
