Wimbledon's definitely the best bet for 2018! To win GS #20 and W #9 in 2018 would be awesome!

I hope people now realize that playing Montreal proved a silly decision on the long run.

It just stressed him out. He flunked Cinci where he'd have prepared better and wore out in the slam.

He has to be very picky about what to play and what to avoid. Irrespective of what his fanboys think. This is health.

Suggested 2018 Schedule:

TO PLAY:

AO, Wimbly, USO
Cinci, Halle, Shanghai, IW
Rotterdam, Basel
London WTF

TO CONSPICUOUSLY AVOID:

Entire Clay Season

Miami (no need to exacerbate yourself - I would have even suggested him to avoid slow IW but at least he has a gap before and after)
Paris

OPTIONAL
Stuttgart - I would he rather avoid it, but its grass and playing in a couple of rounds only to lose to the Great Claas again would be sufficient to get his feet ready for Halle and Wimbly.

---

If he can stick to this sched, he'd at least be physically fit to contend to the contests I've scheduled "To Play" at 36, and hopefully end with 4-6 titles which should be good. Of course, I am not counting the day's form (and that is important) but the base level of physical condition for competition is even more significant than form on the long run.

No greed. No overconfidence. No overestimation of capacity. No catering to fanboyism. No compromise on health.

Longevity. And we gonna see whats going on.

Federer will complete the Mother of all Quests next year. When this thread was started it seemed ridiculous - now its gonna happen.

I really didn't think he would play Paris, being it B2B with Basel.

His sights are clearly locked on YE#1.

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

What else is there to shoot for in 2017? #1 is obviously where it's at! His goals for 2018 he can think about once the season ends in November....

looks like Cilic and Wawrinka are not doing much at the moment either.

Almost no chance of that. No need to get greedy and hurt himself even more like he did at Montreal. Skipped the entire clay season just to get greedy and play Montreal + Cincinnati and ended up hurting himself for both Cincy and USO.

He would need to win everything from now on and hope Rafa loses early in all of his tournaments.

He's 36, he has a HUGE lead of weeks at #1 on Rafa. YE#1 would be really special but health is even more special. Let Rafa have it. Slams are more important. Let's try to win one more of those.


But I think he will still try to be YE#1 since it's probably his last chance, which is understandable. I hope he gets it, don't think he will. Just really hope he stays healthy for a Slam chance next year.

Roger Federer

5 AO - 1 RG - 8 W - 5 USO

302 weeks #1 - 6 WTFs

Re: Federer : The Mother Of All Quests : 20 Slams And 100 Titles.

From the way Roger has been playing this year (Australia Open, Wimbledon), I don't see any reason why a 20th Grand Slam is out of the question in the near future. He won't do it this year (obviously), but his skills are not going to decline hardly at all into 2018 at this point.
