Will Rafa get into double figures in Slams won?

I can see him winning like 3-4 more RGs at least. Can he get 2-3 other Slams?

BTW, the fact:
the number of Slams won by Roger Federer by Rafa's age: 0

Out by 1, ys, but never mind.

The Wit and Wisdom of the Tennis Journalist, Indian Wells 2004

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Rafa is now 22. Fed won the 2003 Wimbledon a month before he turned 22.

Re: Will Rafa get into double figures in Slams won?

Rafa has showed how he improves year after year after year.
Last year, he should have won Wimbledon. I think this year, he will have a pretty good chance again.
He's only 22, he will definitely win more than 10.

VAMOS RAFA!!!
Marat, You are Simply Amazing!

Re: Will Rafa get into double figures in Slams won?

Nadal and Djokovic will share the slams for the next 10 years, by 2017 this should be something like:

Djokovic: 28 slams
Nadal: 15 slams
Federer: 12 slams

You read it first, feel free to bump it at the end of 2017

Re: Will Rafa get into double figures in Slams won?

I doubt it, unless he can find a way to beat Fed and Djoko off clay.

6 RG + 1 somewhere else = 7 slams

Re: Will Rafa get into double figures in Slams won?

He'll get trashed by Fed if they meet at Wimbledon or USO...Fed will be out for revenge after the humiliation in RG final.

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

Yes, he's already reached 2 Wimbledon finals. He'll win 2-3 of those.

Nadal isn't just a clay courter Those people who thought he wouldn't win slams outside of Paris are delusional clowns.
