What a Rafatard this OP is. 16 years really? RAFAWONCYGS has really been stewing his tardism a lot this whole time.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

9-11 I would say. the reason is because he is such a huge ROland Garros favorite. he could literally in a few years just focus all of his attention to that one tournament with his scheduling and planning and be virtually guranteed a few more wins.

also he is great on grass and slow hard. i definitely seem snagging one the next two years and great chance at another year beyond that. but let's be honest anything past 3 years more in a row is unrealistic

the statistic looks great but the reason Nadal has such a great chance to get the record for most successive years of Grand Slam victories is because he won his first few Roland Garros's so young.

it definitely is possible for him to win one a year until 29 years old depending on physique

Pity that your choices only go up to 16.

I would say 17, but not on his current streak. His current streak will end with 16 years of winning slams in 2020. He will briefly retire for the next 7 years and upon returning in 2028, he will win slams for the next 17 consecutive years, winning his last slam in 2044. We can safely say he will amass at least 88 slams in his career.

Nice try. As if our Dear Leader Tio Toni would allow Rafa and Xisca to be in the same room unsupervised.

Tomic sucks on clay. Prime Raonic probably beatable on clay. Nadal can rule the next generation.
