Roger Federer discusses “2018 schedule plans”

Roger Federer discusses “2018 schedule plans”

Swiss tennis star and World no. 2 is all set to carry his momentum of 2017 to next year & in an interview SFR Sport, Roger Federer discussed his 2018 schedule plans.

Former World no.1 had an outstanding 2017 as he clinched both the Australian Open and Wimbledon  – taking his overall grand slam tally to all-time high 19.

Australian Open victory was particularly recorded as a special one for the 36-year-old, as he defeated his old rival Rafael Nadal in a five-set thriller.

Opting out of the French Open & maintaining his work-load was the key to Federer’s success. Given his success at Wimbledon, it proved the right decision.

Despite being able to compete in most events he wanted to, the 36-year-old appeared to be not quite fully fit in the end of season ATP Finals in London an suffered a shock loss in the semi-finals.

And as 2017 comes to an end, all eyes have been set on 2018 & it will interesting to see the game plan of Federer for the next year.

Roger Federer discusses 2018

In an interview SFR Sport, Federer has opened up on his Grand slam schedule & drop a huge hit that he may opt out of French Open again when discussing the major tournaments he will base his 2018 around.

“Australian Open, Wimbledon and US Open are cornerstones, everything which lies between we’ll take it from there,” said Federer, per The Express. “We’ll only step on court if we are 100% fit.”

The move seems to be a well-calculated step from the Swiss maestro, who seems to be more keen on focusing on the tournaments where his chances of success are higher.

Like Federer, Nadal also enjoyed a resurgent 2017 and is so dominant in France. So as disappointing as it is to hear an all-time great may have played his last match at the French Open, if the rewards are witnessing the Swiss star prolong his playing career elsewhere on the circuit, it is surely worth it.

“I currently intend to continue to play for a longer period, hopefully for a few more years,” he added.

“I doubt though, it will be another 10 years.”
