it is the prophesy:


perhaps #20 is supposed to happen on grass.


it is his best surface. his game so ideally suited for deadly damage on grass.

My guess is that he will again skip clay entirely next year to prepare for Wimbledon as it is probably his only real shot of making it to 20 slams. I would expect him to go back to Roland Garros for a farewell but only when he no longer thinks he has a decent chance at Wimbledon.

Fred will see if he has the desire to win another slam/Wimbledon. If he does then he'll skip again.

Provided he retires before RG 2019. Which very well may be the case. Or maybe not. Who knows...

I believe he will, as long as he believes he has a realistic shot at Wimbledon.

I say he plays monte carlo, rome, and RG next year. that is just a wild guess.

He'll probably play two events: Rome and RG.

He never stopped being motivated. That was pure speculations on behalf of some posters here. In fact, he was planning to go to the gym the next day after LC and to arrive to Shanghai early to start practicing ASAP.

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!

well if he is healthy and fit he should play some of the key clay events.

Spectator75 I don't think he will skip clay next year.

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.
