    The true storybook ending would be winning Olympic gold and then dropping the mic and walking out

    Re: Can Roger Federer reach 100 titles?

    EHHH, pfffffft.

    While of course I'd love a scenario where Rog goes out on a high and all, and while I'd selfishly not enjoy Rog ending his career as Edberg, Lendl, McEnroe and so many have done....I still am of the school that, especially when one has achieved as much as Roger, Rafa, Novak, & the Sisters have done, they can do whatever the heck they want. Play just for the fun of it, and rake in tons of more bucks? Their call.

    (AND 100 tournament wins or not? Not invested in that in the slightest.)

    Their call? Obviously it is, but we are all fans here and can imagine what we would advise if we were close to them and asked. Total fantasy of course, but so what?

    Just wanted to say that no need to take all this discussion too seriously. Roger in particular is in the very last stage of his career. I'll be glad if his wins this tournament, but I certainly don't expect it like I might have 5-6 years ago.
    Roger forever

    Bump for #89
    It was a big one!

    I think there is an outside possibility. 11 more titles is not an impossible task, but unlikely.

    He won the 2017 Aussie and 2012 Wimbledon. I still don't care about 100 titles.

    It would cheapen Fed's legacy if he started playing Challengers in a year or two to bump up the number of titles. I doubt he'd do that. But he could pass Lendl legitimately, which would put him to the top in my book [Jimbo's numbers are arguably inflated and perhaps not even wholly substantiated - the records from the early days of the Open era are spotty, with competing tours well before the age of the ATP].

    If FedEx 2.0 doesn't need a reboot over the next 24 months he might make 100 after all. If not, the Roger is Washed Up thread will see new life.

    I think he can if he plays 3 more years. I think if he gets close, he'll shoot for it. Maybe he'll start entering Newport. Poor Rajeev Ram!

    He could win three or four more this year. A title on grass, #8 in Cincinnati, maybe Basel, maybe the World Tour Finals if he's healthy.

    Re: Can Roger Federer reach 100 titles?

    "If he plays 3 more years" and "if he's healthy at the WTF" reminds me of my grandmother telling me how she's going to remodel her house once she wins the Publisher's Clearing House.

    Federer is exploding out of the blocks after a 6 months rest. This isn't a pace he can keep up for years. He's also already past normal retirement age, and gave some thought to retiring after his AO win. If he's playing in 2019, he's not winning 3 or 4 titles, he's playing mostly doubles and accepting a singles WC into Wimbledon ala Navratilova.
