More likely to Win the Career Slam, Nadal or Federer?

Career slam, that is winning all 4 majors to just make sure everyone understands that part...
My vote has to go to Rafa with way he's looking recently...
But I feel pretty confident Federer still has a shot, he's too talented to write off..

What does everyone think...?

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Re: More likely to Win the Career Slam, Nadal or Federer?

For me every year is a new year. Federer showed me In MC and Hamberg how you beat Nadal on clay. But mentaly he is too messed up to do it. I think Novak or Murry. Tsonga.

I think maybe 2009 will be someone eles year.

Federer.

Nadal seems to be having one of those crazy breakthrough years numerous players have had before. He wins a couple GS, does well in other tournaments, and suddenly everyone's talking about the career slam, very similar to Jim Courier after he won the AO and dominated for the next couple months. I doubt he'll have a year much better than this.

wat.

Are they going to disqualify Djokovic and Tsonga for some reason and hand Nadal the Australian Open?

we shal see. Nadal still has to prove him self at the Open. intresting times ahead. I believe both will do it to be honest. I think Federer is having a hard time as seeing himself as the GOAT. and he is right on the cusp of it. And I think this year it has freaked him out a bit a bit like when he was put as fav to win wimbleon and the French in 2002 and he just freaked out and could not cope with the presure he put on him self. But people can call me crazy but I do believe Roger will win the French. And that he will surpass 14 slams.

The only question mark I have with Nadal is if his body can hold up. But if it can I think he can surpass 14 slams as well by the time he retires.

Re: More likely to Win the Career Slam, Nadal or Federer?

i said federer simply cuz he need just one more, it is the most difficult for him, but both GS nadal needs are pretty difficult for him too and it's the double(duhh).

Federer has the game to get to RG final no problem, it's always Nadal who's beaten him at RG in the past 4 years.

Re: More likely to Win the Career Slam, Nadal or Federer?

Clay and Grass similar lately... Quite another for Nadal to win USO and AO... I don't think he ever wins either... A simple fluke and Nadal loses at RG next year and Fed will take it.. As someone else posted Federer has no trouble getting to RG final.. When was the last time Nadal got to USO or AO final???

Oh.. first post... Hi!! What are the credits? TMJordan has over 21,000 posts... Geesh..
