Point is, 7 is a very impressive count. Is Novak the greatest hard court player of all time? Because I think that's what you'd have to be to win the Australian or US Open that many times. There's a lot more competition on that surface. Agassi was incredibly good at the Aussie open and he only got 4. I can see Novak getting 4, but not 7. He's already 25. There's simply not enough time.
The only reason Agassi only got 4 is because he skipped AO early in his career and then a few times later as well. He could easily have had more AO titles as it was his favorite surface.

For Nole, I think he will get to 5 AOs and break the record.

No, they won't. Nadal is unlikely to get 5 more slams before he retires. That's a tall order when you are 26.

And Novak would have to win 12 slams and he's already 25. That's flat out impossible. It would essentially require him to get three calendar year grand slams from age 26-29. Mankind will go extinct before anyone accomplishes that feat in men's tennis.

Nadal may get to 13 or 14. Novak could hit 10 or 11.

Good point. Agassi lost several good years.

5 AO's is possible I think. 7 is unrealistic though.

Re: Will Nole win 7 AO's?

How about 7 Umags?

It has never been done before so it must be harder than any 7 grand slams, no?
Moya, the king of Umag, has 4 or 5 titles.
