In 2016, when Roger Federer took a sabbatical to rehab his knee, not many predicted how things would unfold the next year. People just wanted to see their favourite champion back, competing, let alone win anything.
Federer began 2017 in Perth, easing his way into things and then entered Melbourne with coming out of it healthy as his only goal. But by the time he demolished Tomas Berdych in the third round, things started looking really good for the then 17 time Grand Slam Champion and by the end of the fortnight, Roger Federer was standing alone as the 5th time Champion in Melbourne.
Federer went on to win six more titles in 2017, that included the sunshine double, his 8th Wimbledon crown, ninth Halle, Shanghai Masters and a title in Basel.
With his first title defense beginning on 15th this year, we take a look at the titles Roger Federer can defend in 2018.
