Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

Nope. Nadal will probably win 11 or 12, I'm leaning towards 11 because his body is looking more and more done and dusted. Djokovic like said earlier, will not be winning slams in 2014 or beyond(by 27 his body will be done and dusted), so he has 2012 and 2013 to win the rest of his slams and there is no way he will win the next 8 slams to reach 12 slams which is what he will probably need to eclipse Nadal. It's Djokovic's fault that he basically slacked and wasted 2 years in 2009 and 2010 to win slams. I think the most Djokovic will win is 8 slams so he won't even reach double digits.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

extremely unrealistic due to the fact that in the worst case scenario Nadal can likely fall back on Roland Garros and win a few more of them..... at minimum Nadal ends at 11-12 slams and at best ends at a few more than that....

Djokovic I think is capable of getting close, but he wasted some of the years when tennis players are at their best.... 2009/2010. in reality (despite recent times where the top 10 has been rather old), players do not get better as they age in the sport. Federer is a unique example and has made people too optimistic for the future of our current stars.

Djokovic plays too agressively, just last year his body was seemingly falling apart towards the end. he may have totally recuperated since then BUT it only gets worse each year. I see Djokovic ending at like 7 or 8 slams. this Australian Open will really make it easier to tell if he will win many more..

it is extremely unlikely DJokovic can catch Nadal though, too much of an uphill battle. waited until he was 24 to get totally healthy. if he were a year or two younger then yes definitely, but no definitely given the current circumstances...

i think there is still a lot of question marks if he can reach an Agassi-ish number of grand slams

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

No. Just no. He wasted majority of his prime. Almost 25 himself now, he is not Federer and will not dominate injury free taking 3 slams a year for years.

Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

No way.

Same Question, Do you believe Nadal would pass Federer? No way

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

nope. I dont think Novak gets to 10 even. 7-8 is my guess (assuming he will not have another year in 2011 a la last season). And anyway Rafa is not done winning slams.

if a poor mans del potro aka djoker can dominate the way he did in 2011 i dont see how the GOAT himself should achieve anything less than the golden slam this year.

The sad thing is, you're really believing what you're writing.
