Possible goals for Federer in 2018...

1. 2nd FO (double slam, first to do so since Rod Laver, unless Rafa wins the 2018 AO title).
2. 1st Monte Carlo.
3. 1st Rome.
4. Try to defend everything else in 2017 he won and win the events also that he lost in '17.

To sum it all up: Rogie should go all out on clay in 2018 one last time!!

Re: Possible goals for Federer in 2018...

For example in 2018, skip the sunshine double, play a year of something like: (Hopman Cup), AO, Dubai, Rotterdam, skip Indian Wells and Miami, then Monte Carlo, Madrid, Rome, FO, Stuttgart, Halle, W, skip Toronto, play Cincinnati, USO, Shanghai, Basel, skip Paris, and should he qualify once again, London (15 events total)...

Re: Possible goals for Federer in 2018...

Next season, he should give clay one final proper go. His schedule for 2018 should be something like:

Hopman Cup
Australian Open
Dubai (I would skip it but Roger will play there)
Indian Wells
Monte Carlo
Rome
French Open
Halle
Wimbledon

And then the rest of the season as normal.

Re: Possible goals for Federer in 2018...

If he would try to invest on clay, I say he ought to skip Indian Wells-Miami altogether, possibly Dubai aswell.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

He's definitely NOT gonna play that many events leading to Wimbledon, no way. That's too taxing, he's 36 ffs.

He said himself today he needs a nice combination of events to play + events to skip.

Roger Federer

5 AO - 1 RG - 8 W - 5 USO

302 weeks #1 - 6 WTFs

Re: Possible goals for Federer in 2018...

Would be great to see him winning RG again, but I don´t mind if he doesn´t play a single clay match as long as he stays healthy and in form like this year

Federer - Thiem - Zverev - Del Potro - Kyrgios

Re: Possible goals for Federer in 2018...

Next year, I want Roger to skip clay again and focus on Wimbledon and the AO.

New RLA is good for his game.

I would to see him winning Monte Carlo and Rome for the first time.
An unprecedented second French Open would be like a dream.

He won't play that many clay events, that's for sure.

He should just play the slams and some warm-up events. That's it.
