It's only been several weeks since Roger Federer captured his eighth Wimbledon title and his 19th overall. While many are still sitting in their chairs wondering how it's possible that an almost 36-year-old guy is dominating the men's tennis, the Swiss champion has no time to spare. The US Open Series has just begun and the entire ATP herd is migrating to North America, the focusing point for the next six weeks or so. As expected, judging by his surreal game from the first part of the season, Roger Federer will be making headlines at every significant ATP event on the American cement court.

Yesterday, his official website suffered an update that confirmed Federer's presence in Montreal, Canada at Rogers Cup. A good news indeed for his worldwide fans network. The past seasons saw Roger skipping this event to focus on Cincinnati and US Open only. But, this year seems to be a special one as his hunger to further success is rather insatiable.

Rogers Cup and Cincinnati and the chance to clinch another Masters 1000 title

Rogers Cup ( the Canadian Masters) has a unique feature being held in Montreal and Toronto.

This year will be Montreal the host city as last year's edition in Toronto went to Novak Djokovic's pocket. The Serb won't be in the main draw this year and the news that Federer will attend this event did nothing but to the raise the bar. One thing is for sure, Roger Federer wants all the glory for himself. In the past, he has won two times this tournament but his latest success occurred more than a decade ago back in 2006.

If he fails to go all the way in Montreal, another Masters 1000 chance is looming ahead.

The Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati is the next in line and the place where Federer has known some glorious days as he managed to win this particular event seven times throughout his career. Rogers Cup and Cincinnati will get the warm-up job done as Federer aims the 20th Grand Slam success at Flushing Meadows. Moreover, he has the chance to grow his record when it comes to Masters title. Currently, he has 26 Masters 1000 successes under his belt and that number is likely to grow in the following weeks.

A potential success at US Open

Making a short analysis of how things stand in men's singles tour, it's easy to notice that only a few players can hope for a complete run at US Open. And, by far, Roger Federer seems to be on top of the list. With Djokovic out, and Murray still uncertain, Rafael Nadal or Stan Wawrinka ( the defending champion) or perhaps Marin Cilic (2017 Wimbledon runner-up) may have a chance over Federer. If Roger Federer will go on winning his 5th US Open and 20th Major overall, his all-time-best status will enter into the unreachable zone.
