Wimbledon and the US Open.

Wimledon and Roland Garros is possible.

I would like a Golden Slam.

EDIT: Olympics is just before the US Open isn't it.

I reckon Federer will get taken out at the Olympics but win the US Open... and the TMC, which is a half major.

The easiest slam for Fed to win next year will be the Australian Open. His current game suits slow hardcourts the best (Fed's ridiculous 2nd serve kick is unstoppable there).

I think he'll easily win Aussie Open and the USO. Don't think he'll win RG and I'm not sure about Wimbledon either.
I think he will win the Olympics though

"New guys challenging me -- this is my biggest motivation out there," Federer said. "Seeing them challenging me, and then beating them in the finals."

Fed has already conquered his generation(25-27) and the 'tweeners(22-23). The only last thing to do is thoroughly whip the 20-21 crowd(Nadal, Joko, Gasquet, Berdych, Monfils, Murray). That's his remaining motivation.

Re: Which Slams will Federer win in 2008?

I'll go with Wimby, USO and Olympics as well, with Djokovic grabbing AO trophy and Nadal-Djokovic FO final, but with 4th title for Rafa
