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.

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!

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.

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!

I think he will play RG next year.
He'll have a good chance there I think

this is the best thing that could have happened.

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.
