Nole-Rafa open era record with 3 consecutive slam F, how many there will be in row?

THis is 1st time in open era that 2 players play 3 consecutive slam finals each other. What do you think how much they will improove this record? how many consecutive finals they will play? Those 2 are very consistent at slams-making finals, Nole is in his 5th from last 6 since USO 10, Rafa is in his 7th from 8th-since RG 2010

Actually this final has a good chance to happen at RG considering Murray is less good on clay and the last clay season of Djokovic. But there is still plenty of times before it. A lot of thing can happen.
Anyway, I don't think this final will happen again in Wimbledon.

Fed can be problematic and he needs to keep Murray under his thumb, also needs to avoid injuries. Rather a lot but if he can do that he's sure to win some more slams.

Great. I am sure the ATP mugs can be happy the sport will start losing popularity for its diversity is gone.

Depends on the draw. If Djoker avoids Federer at the French and Wimbledon then he'll be in the Final again. Nadal will be in the final of EVERY SLAM this year.
Nadal will beat Djokovic in every one of those Finals if he(djok) gets there.

Well, certainly the is a "big four" phrase which is valid but also "big two" because Rafa and Novak have dominated last 12 months by far. Don't see changing that too much in the near future.

I expect Nole to routine Nadal at RG this year, not sure about Wimbledon since Murray has been showing signs of mental improvement under Lendl's lead so he can do some damage to Nadal on grass and appears as a superior player to Nole on this surface.
