What are the odds that Rafa will win all 4 Grand Slams this year?

I would say about 60% probability.

Rafa hasn't lost a set at the AO and will be winning.

RG on clay he is the best ever.

Wimbledon should be easy as there are no grass players

US is the only tough one and the reason I dont give a 80% probabily.

What probability do you assign to Rafa winning all 4 GS?

The ATP deserves a better class of player, and I'm gonna give it to 'em - Djoker

All depends on Federer, if he isn't such a pussy then Nadal will not win Aussie Open, Wimbledon or US Open.

Federer has normally been a pussy when he sees Nadal on the other side of the net.

Please explain your illogical beliefs.

All comes back to that match in 2004 in Miami when Nadal beat him 6-3 6-3, if only that didn't happen..

But then when you see a mug like Simon push Nadal around, you wonder about Verdasco... And what if Federer is in God-mode in the final?

No, it is just a bad matchup for Federer. When I think about how bad this matchup is and how he has faced him 10 times on clay I must say 12-6 is still a good record. Take that match in Rome 2006 or Miami and the 3 wimbledon matches. I think Federer has fought hard against someone whose strengths plays to Federers weakness and most of the time he needs to play it on Nadals best surface which is Federers worst surface.

Has Federer ever been in God-mode against Nadal
