This year is still a possibility.
But next year, he will be almost 37 yo.

No freakin way. Also, the gen next of Kyrgios and a Zverev will be stronger.

So no freakin way on Fed's slam next year.

In fact, I don't believe he will win another slam.

They last played in the 2016 AO semifinal on Jan 28, where Novak won in 4 sets 6-1, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3, 1 year and almost 2 months ago

Nadal last beat Novak at the 2014 French Open and Roger at the 2014 Australian Open.

My apologies instead of writing almost 1and 1/2 years i wrote 2 and 1/2 years, thanks for the correction.

I didn't believe in the possibility he could snatch 100 singles titles, now I think he might have an outside chance of doing it provided he keeps playing till 2019 and stays in good form.

As for the 20 slams, I am still doubtful it's possible, that's almost out of question. But maybe he could have a chance if Nole and Murray keep exiting in early rounds (I don't expect that to happen, quite the opposite), and stars al19n again...

We'll see, this thread is getting fun though.
You do realize the last time Murray beat Federer was 4 years ago? In Federer's probably worst season ever that was plauged by back injuries.
Federer has been constantly beating Murray easily, he has his number, and this year Federer seems to be playing his best tennis since 2012.
Also Federer in this current form can easily beat Djokovic. He has been even beating prime djokovic from 2014-16 in many matches, tho not the majority of matches of course.
So I seriously fail to get your point.
I'm talking about facing them at slams (especially Djokovic). In 2014-16 Nole has been his major obstacle to #18 (W 2014, W 2015, USO 2015, AO 2016). If that version of Djokovic comes back, it'll make it tough for Fed (even though I'm aware Fed could've won some of those matches I mentioned).

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

revised estimate for just the singles titles for Roger:

110 singles titles.

19 at Wimb is all he would want
I think Roger himself and certainly many fans, myself included, are already happy and relaxed.
From the moment Roger won the AO this season is a successful season in my eyes.

Don't get me wrong I would for Roger to win Wimbledon and stand alone ad the player with the most titles there. If that happened it would be hyper, mega, super awesome.

The 5th on the 2nd row is definitely Indian Wells.
The 10th on the 2nd row isn't the Rogers Cup, that's the 1st on the third row. That one is Gstaad.

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

It'd be hilarious if Roger's last losses in his career to Andy, Rafa and Pushak came at AO'13, AO'14 and AO'16 respectively. But he'd have to retire before his form declines severely for that to happen.
