Who will win most slams in the Fedalovic era?

The Fedalovic era beeing defined from the year when Djokovic appeared and entered the top 3 in 2007, that is 2007 AO to 2012 Wimbledon.

6 years in a row with the same top 3 every single year but with changing orders. So far the stats in slams look like this:

Nadal- 9 slams
Federer- 8 slams
Djokovic- 5 slams
Del Potro- 1 slam

Years ending nr1:

Nadal, Federer: 2
Djokovic: 1

Titles:

Nadal-33
Federer-30
Djokovic-28

I consider it very much an even battle here between the top 3, Djokovic far behind but seems to have the future on his side. However, this era pretty much ends if one of them would fall out of the top 3 never to come back and he would have to win alot of slams before the Fedalovic era ends.

An interesting follow up question that can be discussed is when the Fedalovic era will end? When will one of them fall for never to return to the top 3 (several times all 3 have fallen for a couple of weeks to nr4 because of Murray just to have a strong return back to the top 3).

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

that's the whole point

and it depends on Murray as well

I don't know how long this "era" will last then I rely on the current situation and on the fact that Nadal is the "center" or "intermediate" between Fed and Djokovic, then it should be firstly "his era".

useless old guy

Re: Who will win most slams in the Fedalovic era?

I am utterly convinced that Nadal will win at least 15 French Opens. Those who don't think so haven't seen Nadal play on red clay.

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

It is problematic to depend on Murray alone, I am more optimistic than most about Murray but he is not going to be better at 27 than 25.

Most likely Nadal

Some people mistake the Distant Sun for an eternally raging fireball calling for your demise. Just like aliens from outer space. Aliens from other planets. Aliens in galaxies too far away from your own comprehension. Your demise is ultimately irrelevant and meaningless.

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Either you troll or you don't know anything about tennis (i guess you watch it since 2008 like the vast majority of the posters in this forum), the probability of such thing to happens is probably around 0,0000000001%.

It's always pointless to make such predictions, and it's basically impossible to know when we'll have a different top3 in the end of the year, so i will try de make some predictions (for the fun only) but i won't take any attention about this rule (doesn't matter if some players break the top 3)

Federer: 18 slams so 9 after 2007
Nadal: 14 slams (12)
Djokovic: 8 slams (8)

So... Nadal

And.....

Murray: 4
Del Potro: 3
Tsonga: 1

(Too early to say for Tomic/Dimitrov/Harrison/Raonic/Goffin)

Re: Who will win most slams in the Fedalovic era?

If I had to start that era very precisely, I would start it a little bit later : in Indian Wells 2007.

For many reasons, the Australian open 2007 can be seen as the zenith of the "all Federer" era (by the way the Australian open has more often expressed the continuation/end of previous year rather than the beginning of the new one).

Then the start of Fed's decline is illustrated by his losses to Canas in Indian Wells and Miami.

And Djokovic really emerges in those Indian Wells and Miami, his first MS1000 finals, crushing Murray twice in semis, whereas until then Murray was seen by many ones as a bigger prospect than Djokovic.

Then he plays the semis at least of the next 5 slams, his first slam semis as well.

Also Nadal reveals in Wimbledon 2007 that he's now the same level on grass as Federer, whereas he was not seen like that before.

Good points all

Nadal, because he is just better than the other two. They can't beat him on clay, but he can beat them on their best surfaces.

The thing is that the other two don't need to beat him - more than half the time he gets beaten by someone else at an earlier round.

Also I thought Federer's best surface was indoor hard - last time I checked, no Grand Slam was on indoor hard.

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).

Djokovic-Nadal on slow hardcourt 5-1

Federer-Nadal on indoor courts 4-0

That's what others were saying too when I said Nadal will win at least 7 French Opens back in 2008. He's going to bounce back from his injury and win the next 8-9 French Opens (with another couple of "injuries" to boot).

warm regards...

6-2, 6-3, 6-2 and 6-2, 6-2, 6-2 and 6-3, 6-0 (and not even finals).
