Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

Since Rafa has won the 2010, French Open - Wimbledon - U.S Open, he now has the rare chance to hold all 4 slams at once, even though it's not in the same calender year, can Rafa complete the Serena Slam by winning the 2011 Australian Open?

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

There's a realistic chance. However, if Murray gets his head in gear, Del Potro starts playing well again after his injury lay-off and Djokovic's fitness improves, it will be tough for Nadal.

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

... and if he wins AO, he has a strong chance of making it 5 (RG) or even 6 (W) in a row!

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

I predict he will make it 6 slams in a row, winning the AO, FO and Wimbledon in 2011

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

If every half-decent player is out with injury, out of form just coming back from injury, declining, slumping, knocked out early, choking, bending over, or in possession of zero stamina and a serve fucked up by Todd Martin, then yeah, he's got a shot.

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

Normally I give OP the benefit of doubt but there's an EXACT same thread with different wording. To answer your question - probably no. Odds of him winning are 2/1 - which is although better than anyone else's odds but is not great by itself.

Please, this is not the "Serena Slam." It is called the non-calendar year slam and Serena was certainly not the first to hold all four slam titles at the same time albeit not in the same year.

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

He is not ugly enough and does not have a large enough arse to call it a Serena slam.

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

Fed came within a few tiebreak points (in two different sets) of holding the "Serena Slam" (Tiger Slam?) after AO 2010.

9 months later, "he should just retire".

Re: Will Rafa win the Serena Slam?

I don't think so. It will be really difficult for Rafa, but not impossible
