If he's willing to stick around till 2017-2018 winning 100 titles is deffo possible.

Who knows, this can happen again. Im sure he believes in one more slam and with this luck factor it's not completely out of question. 20 though is hard to believe.

True. Important for him is to stick around and stay healthy. Novak is not gonna win everything in sight, and when he steps off the peddle just a bit, Roger can be in contention for an important tournament. I don't think Rafa is gonna win USO anytime again.

You are also right in saying he can collect his "12" with much ease in a year and a half if he wants (by focussing on MMs), but he won't do that of course.

Federer wants to play until 2018 so age 37, yeah that's possible, no problem. It is all about Mirka really. Physically Roger probably could play until 40 at least but when will Mirka say enough is enough?

Congrats to Roger on taking title #88 in Basel.
That was my prediction for the year and he still has 2 more tournaments to go. I also predicted 1 major for him. Well, with 2 finals, I think that wasn't bad pick. Anyway, could this be a repeat of 2011? Well, one title out of the last two wouldn't be bad. The WTF draw might be interesting.

As for how long he'll play?

Federer said after yesterday's final that he will be happy if he will open the new 10.000 people stadium in Basel in 2018: 'I hope I can return for many more years and play finals like this vs Rafa. My goal is to play for as long as possible'.


Good luck and good health to him.

Respectfully,
masterclass

100 titles is doable and it depends only whether Roger plays 3-4 more years or not.

20 slams are hard specially wasting chances like the last 3 finals he played.

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

12 more! I still think he could do exactly 100 IMO. 20 Slams though is a bit of an ask. With his current level he's still competitive and he may play more 250s later on when he full declines and get more wins. He is still winning more than 3 a year so let's say in the next 4 or so years he wins an average of 3 I think it's doable.

I don't think he'll get to 100, but it will be close
