The countdown continues. He is only 2 major wins away from 16 majors, 2 clay wins from overcoming Guillermo Vilas and 5 wins from 50 clay titles.

Simply amazing and unbelievable from the Clay Warrior.

As the spring European clay season ends, title #46 comes when and where?

I would say #46 comes during the South American clay court swing next year!

RAFAEL NADAL and GRIGOR DIMITROV

Rafa winning at least one slam in 10 consecutive years is the best achievement in Open Era tennis since Laver won all 4 Grand slam tournaments in the same year!

You were correct sir. Argentina Open in Buenos Aires, an ATP 250 event.

Congratulations to Rafa on winning #46. Condolences to Rafa's good friend, Juan Monaco.
Also, the ATP has recently revised the Vilas clay title count to 48 (as of now).
But if/when Rafa gets 50, he probably has the record anyway.

Now where does #47 come from? Does he recapture Monte Carlo and/or Barcelona, defend Madrid, grab Rome and/or Roland Garros?

As of now, I think it is going to be difficult for him this year, but who knows?

Respectfully,
masterclass

Just needs to win 3 of MC/Barca/Madrid/Rome/RG

5 chances to get 3 and pass Vilas, very doable. Of course RG is the most important

How about 70 overall ATP titles + 10th RG + 50th Clay titles on Sunday June 7, 2015 ?

Getting 5 out of 7 (4 out 5 on Clay) from (IW + Miami + MC + Barcelona + Madrid + Rome + RG) is extremely tough..Hard to see it with Nadal current form ..

Dull will be lucky to even pass two rounds at IW or Miami. He'll have to go into extreme cheat-mode to go further than that.

I think Nadal will win one of MC/Madrid/Rome and probably Barcelona as well. But RG is not going to Nadal this year.

And #49 came in Barcelona. OP updated.

Does clay title #50, RG#10, Major #15, come in Paris?

The numerology of multiples of 5 somehow seems appropriate...

50, 9, 14, doesn't quite have the same appeal, even if it were to come at a venerable tournament such as Hamburg.
