I have a feeling that is he now more motivated than ever.


he is going to take his game and his fitness to another level for 2018.

some people just have no idea:



this is the best thing that could have happened.

this grand slam win by the clay warrior will motivate Roger even more.



Roger loves the sport and he loves to compete.




at least 3 more titles for Roger this year. he can do it.

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

Realistically, he'll end up doing it at Wimbledon if it happens. If it was up to me though, I'd say play the French Open next year. He proved he can still win a slam on hardcourt (AO) and grass (WIM). Now go and give clay (RG) one last shot at least. That would be an absolutely epic way to win no. 20.

Missing Grand Slam Epics:
-Australian Open: Murray vs Wawrinka
-French Open: Federer vs Murray
-Wimbledon: Djokovic vs Wawrinka
-US Open: Federer vs Nadal

He already said his immediate goal is to win Shanghai. Not to stay healthy, not to play well, not to other blah-blah. To win Shanghai. And he's obviously eyeing WTF as well. At least... His motivation is definitely there.

As for the next year, as long as his health permits, he'll put a helluva effort during the off season again, working like a mad man on his fitness. If everything goes according to plans, more wonderful things should happen in 2018. Stay tuned!

Hope eager fanboys don't shed tears then if he falls flat on the ground like he did against Raonic in Wimbly last year. That wasn't an aberration. That was an early reminder that athletes age and scheduling tournaments wisely keeps him in the mix for few more years than send him out forever.

I am very interested to see if Federer allows his competitive sense to completely override common sense.

Slow as ass claycourt season is a strict no-no. But its up to him. Lets see.

Almost sounds like a jinx attempt.
Let's not exaggerate. He's not 76 years old, of whom you'd almost expect to accidentally slip and break his hip, because of low bone density. Obviously, there's wear and tear and the risk of injuries is somewhat increased due to it. But the "default" reason why ageing athletes retire is not because their bodies start falling apart all of a sudden, but because in a game of slim margins even a little loss in muscle and speed costs them their competitive edge.

He knows what's the real state of his health is and made it clear how much staying healthy after tennis is important to him (his career aside, he's still a young man, you know...). We should just trust his judgement and stop pretending we know better. We don't.

Federer needs to be healthy first and foremost.
Shanghai would be a good way to make the #1 race interesting, but don't overplay for it!

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

it is the prophesy so it shall come to pass:


#20 will happen at Wimbledon if not a little sooner at the Australian Open.



if there is an opening in Melbourne, Federer will capitalize on it.



I just cant see nole and andy coming back strong so quickly. they will need a few tournaments under their belts to find their traction.

I will be shocked if he doesnt skip the entire clay season again. He will be close to 37 during RG 2018 and if there is something his body doesnt need is a packed calendar that involves a lot of grinding.
