Who Will Be The Next Legend

Roger is obviously a legend. Rafa has become a legend by winning slams left and right. What about others. Who do you look at today and say, this guy is going to be legend. Not just a slam or two winner but someone who'll be the next Agassi, Sampras, Federer.

Can Djokovic, Murray, and Del Potro win 6 to 10 slams?

Djokovic will win 3-5 slams by the end of his career. Del Potro will win another 1-2. Murray will remain slamless.

I am not too sure about that. If you are right, then this era is truly pathetic. I mean to not have another person as a "legend" with 7 or more slams in this era would be sad. Roger is not going to win too many. So if Nadal wins them all, I guess that's possible

It depends on the progress of players born in years 1991-1992. At the moment they don't look too optimistic

DelPo if he can regain the form he had. Djoko needs to gain more fitness and learn to serve better.

I think we have laid down on MTF that Young might win a major only on his playstation BTW, he's already 21, Nadal in his age was 3-time RG champion

haha. Donald Young was an artificial legend in McEnroe's brain. Just like he always picked Roddick to win US Open and Wimbledon till 2009. I am afraid the young guns have not shown up. Fed is getting a bit old yet we don't see those young Feds or Nadals in the making
