Federer: No. 1 Realistic This Year

(1/6) > >>

Swish:
Looks like Fed has set some more goals, he also believes he has more slams in him.  :king:
 
I wouldn't mind another RG too.
 
 
 
World No. 2 Roger Federer says he still has a chance to reclaim the No. 1 ranking, but it will take an extraordinary year to so do. The 31-year-old Swiss is playing a more limited schedule in 2013, including skipping the Miami Masters. After Indian Wells, where Federer is defending his title and 1,000 points, he will take seven weeks off until Madrid, which begins on May 5. Federer is currently 3,105 points behind No. 1 Novak Djokovic.
 
Its definitely realistic if Im playing great, but I need to play absolutely great, Federer told reporters in Dubai, where he is also defending his title and 500 points. I can play great, but will I be allowed to? Time will tell. My big focus is on making sure that every tournament I enter I am perfectly prepared. I am hopeful I will get enough matches, but if not my schedule can be changed. I need to make sure I have enough time off, so that when 2014 comes I am in a position with options, which I almost wasnt this year to a degree.
 
Federer, who won his record 17th Grand Slam singles title at Wimbledon last summer, added that he is capable of winning more majors.
He has not won a major off grass since the 2010 Australian Open.
I strongly believe I have more Slams in me, Federer said. Which Slam do I favor -- does Wimbledon over-weigh the rest? Maybe, but looking back there have been amazing moments with each Slam. It depends how long I play. But I dont want to be depending on that. I am trying to be smart with my schedule. I am practicing more. Your prime is 23 to 27 or 28 so for me its very challenging -- and exciting. I need to make the right decisions. I have family and not many guys have that.

Totally delusional. Djokovic is already running away with the #1 ranking and he's only going to get more dominant. Fed better settle in to #3.

Look what happened last year when he shocked the tennis world, even though he's aging he is good enough still.
 
Anyways he has to have something to shoot for, a true spartan never quits!!!!!!!
 
 :gleam:

Clay Death:
general swish is right. those kind of goals are important.
 
at least he is all about his tennis.
 
all nadal can talk about is his damn golf and his poker. meaning of course that he has quit, let alone produce any meaningful goals  for himself in tennis.
