When will Federer realistically retire?

It will be difficult even for him to be competitive in tournaments at the best of 5 sets after the next wimbledon.
his longevity has been monumental only comparable to rosewall in the open era, but when premature defeats appear in the big tournaments, will he still be motivated to continue playing?
for now, everything is a path of roses, but if the next gen takes the final step his chances of winning another gs will have definitely ended.
His 2015 made me shut up about that and his 2017 made me embrace a vow of silence.

Roger could make no Slam Semifinals in back to back calendar seasons and I won't expect a retirement.

yes, federer always defies all odds, he has until now 43 sf and 53 qf in grand slam tournaments, When he can not reach these instances, is it worthwhile to continue playing when you already know that you can not win a big tournament again?

It depends on the losses. Plus I think Fed should skip the USO and he very well may after this year. So I mean, if he loses say in the quarters of the AO & WMB in 2020-2021 but his losses are to say Djokovic and one of the next gen and at least half are close, he might continue. If he's losing to the Millmans of the world then maybe not.
