Who knows when he'll hang them up and may do it with an additional slam to boot or 2 to boot. Nadal is still the favorite in my eyes at the French even if he not at full health but if he's off by too much then Fed has as good a chance as any and good a chance at the next 2 Wimbledons. A hard court slam may be a tough ask for him at this point but it's not entirely out of the realm of possibility. It's good for retirees to have a part time job even if they have no financial concerns.
