Roger Federer insisted he fully intends to defend his Wimbledon title in 2018 despite delivering what many fans fear sounded like a farewell speech to Centre Court. Federer, who will be 36 in three weeks' time, became the oldest Wimbledon champion of the modern era when he defeated injury-hit Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4. "Honestly, ever since I had the year I had last year, I think like a year ahead of time, you know, with my schedule, fitness schedule, tournaments I would like to play," he told reporters. "So I totally see myself playing here this time next year."

Why does it show Jack Sock as having to defend 45 points. I don't see where he played any of these 3 tourneys last year. Thanks for the explanation.
