They really love being on a court and the whole pressure thing.
    And the three of them will only hang the racket when a whole bunch of other people will beat them regularly. Which will not happen anytime soon.
    I think he's motivated by several things right now:

    1. He is constantly searching for perfection on court, as impossible as it seems.
    2. He loves 'defusing' the big hitters like Raonic, Berdych.
    3. He enjoys playing NextGen like Zverev, Nick. He'd love to play more of them and see what they have.
    4. He can't wait to play Djokovic & Murray again.
    5. He actually looks forward to playing Nadal on hardcourts.

    1-3, agree. 4-5, I don't think so.

    I've learned by now to not put any limits on Roger Federer!

    Seems inevitable now. Next poll should be can he top Connors and get to 110 titles.

    One poll option should be

    *if he likewise starts his own tour and racks up a bunch of meaningless titles against a bunch of nobodies

    I also think he and Mirka purely love the tennis life. The people they're around, the destinations. I wonder if their daughters will soon want to be in one place longer, for school and friends and sleepovers.

    To be fair Roger is still 6 titles away from 100, would require another season as good as this one so far... Another GS title is more likely.

    He will play Basel, which is basically in his pocket. The WTF are also very good for him, because of the court and conditions. Paris - Bercy too. So I think that he gets about two more titles before the year is over. That's 96.
    I say he is at better than 50% he gets to 100. An Abu Dhabi here, another Dubai... it is right there for him. And if Novak and Andy don't come back at full strength, even more.

    It's unlikely he plays both Basel and Paris. He's mentioned the possibility of skipping one several times. Yesterday he mentioned the possibility of skipping both.

    ‘I’ll just try to be healthy now, go back to the drawing board when I go back to Switzerland tomorrow with my team and we’ll decide what I’m going to play – Basel, Paris – one of those tournaments or both or none – before I go to London because that’s my priority right now.

    ‘I want to really win the World Tour Finals and then we’ll take it from there next week.

    To me, it sounds like he'll almost definitely skip Paris, but doesn't want to be rude by saying it offhand during an interview (especially since Basel happens first). Basel is still likely. It probably depends on how his back feels in a week. He won't risk the WTF.

    He could play a bunch of 250s

    I don't see him skipping Basel. That's like, down the block from his castle? With a marshmallow draw?
    And he needs a new cow. You know, four kids, need some milk...

    I'm surprised they haven't given him twin cows for one of his wins at Basel

    The cow was Gstaad, not Basel, and I don't think they do it anymore.
