Wimbledon? 3 time finalist, 2 time champion in the last 6 times he played. Think that counts as having a great shot
USO? Finalist and champion last two times he played.

He can win every single one of them. It all depends how he returns from injury, but if he's at 90% of his former self, he's in with a great shout at the slams.

RAFAEL NADAL

I think Nadal will most definitely win RG again.

Fedal have great chances at the slams played on natural surfaces which are friendlier for their aging bodies. Both will be looking for an 8th title are their respective best slam.

HC are for Murray, Djokovic and even Del Potro these days. The grinding on slow HC like AO and now the USO will be too much for Fedal.

Nadal could channel swing

Federer could strikerer at Wimbledon.

RG is the best bet.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Nadal is a lock for RG. Just look at the record he has there. I don't see anyone beating Nadal at RG.

8th day of July 2012: 7-time Wimbledon champion!

Once upon a time there was a myth about strong and weak eras. On this glorious day the clownery was eventually unmasked: 30 y.o. past-prime daddy Fed became #1 once again in the supposed strong "Spartan" era with his rivals at their peak.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Long live King Federer!


17 Grand Slam titles
7 Wimbledon titles
302 weeks at #1

the question is how Nadal return next year?

biggest question after this injury. Enough Gas left. He will turn 27 next year with not 100% body.

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic and Mikael Ymer

Thiem will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Sep 2018
Mikael Ymer will be No 3 by Dec 2018
Alexander Zverev will be No 3 by Dec 2017

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Exactly. We don't really know how well he's going to recover, or at what point he's going to come back, and where his game will be at that time. I know he's had knee problems before many times but at some point he's going to stop recovering as well. Many great athletes in many sports have been derailed by injury before, I wouldn't be shocked if its Nadal's turn now. I hope not but you never know.

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

nadal will win rg

federer........ sadly- i doubt he still has it in him
its all about federer's desire to win slams- he's got the record- he's goat by a mile- hes got 2 beautful girls- he's know as the greatest talent ever- what does federer want?

God is Love. To know Love is to know God. So ask yourself if you hold any hate for another in your heart how can you have room for Love, room for God

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Rafa will probably win at least one slam.

Federer can only get to the final as long as he's not in Rafa's half. However, if Federer makes it to the final and has to face Rafa then Nadal will win multiple slams next year.

Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Going for one each again. One slam each for Andy and Nole again as well. They could end up mixing it up this time:

AO: Andy
FO: Roger
Wimbly: Paella
USO: Novak

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.
