Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Provided both are fit by Roland Garros, one of them will win that for sure.

The others I don't know.

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Who exactly will challenge Nadal at RG in this pathetically weak clay era? The 2nd best claycourter for the last 6-7 years is a serve only-no backhand ballerina who has a major match up disadvantage. Nadal will win RG with one knee. Book it.

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

I think many spoke of an "era change" with Fed and Nadal not taking part in a slam semi for the first time since the FO 2004,

but as soon as Nadal comes back and wins (from clay season I think), this will be long gone.

I would like Murray to win more than Nadal from now on, but if you try to think more, there are more chances for Nadal to win slams next year than for Murray. Just because Nadal has won 11 of them and Murray has won a slam at an age such that only Vilas won 4 slams after getting his first slam that old.

As for Federer, it would be a great performance from him to win a slam next year. Only Agassi in modern times (Ashe previously) won a slam that old, and he clearly didn't have the same competitors.

I still hope so yet as he's clearly still able to do it.

Then my answer is yes : Nadal will probably and Fed will maybe win a slam in 2013.

A bit of a disadvantage here for Nadal. Maybe the rule should not be based on age, but by the number of matches played on tour.
the rule is based on both, but anyway this rule is only about money, Nadal can still skip whichever MS1000 tournament he wants whatever his complaints in the media. Other players regularly skip MS1000 tournaments like that without making any fuss.

The rule is not only based age, but also on number of matches played, AND number of years on the tour.

These three conditions must be fulfilled before you have an exemption.

Nadal has a great shot at all of them, RG is almost a given, Fed might sneak in another wimbledon.

Nadal will win RG (maybe AO as well) and Fed maybe Wimbledon or USO

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.

I sure think that at least one of them can win at least one major next year.
