How many slams does Nole end up with by the time he retires?

What do you think? He could get up there in Pete, Roger territory I think as long as he stays healthy. He doesn't have an achilees heel like Fed did with Roger. No real attackers and guys who force the issue anymore in the game so this gives Nole much more comfort. He may just keep collecting slams at a fast pace.

14-16 slams is too high IMO (but you never know). When it is all said and done, i see novak winning 10-11 slams.

9-10.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

5 give or taken away

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

I'd say 7-11. It very much depends. Quite very well be more.

Re: How many slams does Nole end up with by the time he retires?

Dear me people have short memories. Do you know how tough it is to win majors? People are just spitting out numbers. He deserves more majors but no one can predict how many he will get. If he gets 3 or 4 more then he has done a good job. He needs to tie Agassi in order to be considered one of the legends for me. He is 3 away from the great Agassi so just wait before talking double figures. A lot can change. I hope he wins more majors. Muzza deserves majors as well by the way . Ok go ahead and laugh at me for saying Muzza deserves majors.

As long as novak continues denying nadal slams, i hope he continues to win. Hell, i want novak to win slams over murray/federer as well.

He's already done a great job. Only 13 or 14 months ago he was still a one-slam wonder living in the Fedal shade, and no one thought he could/would do anything about it.

What will happen later is impossible to tell. Depends how healthy he is, how motivated, in what condition is his opposition, how long he can play... if he's still healthy/motivated and no new player steps in the next 3-5 years, he could do very well

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

No one enjoys watching Nadal getting his ass kicked by the Djoker more than me . It would be nice if Muzza could sneak a slam or 2. The problem is that had Murray beaten the Djoker Nadal would have shagged him in the final. Federer also gift wraps majors for Nadal. So as much as I like Muzza and Federer they can not be trusted to stop Nadal. Only the Djoker has the guts and the balls to do it.
