Safe to say Nadal will end up with at least 23 slams then.

"Most talented tennis player of all time" hahahaha

He's nothing but a moonballing robot who wasn't allowed a childhood.

The article is biased and over the top, but there's no doubt Nadal is amazingly talented tennis player and an outrageously gifted athlete, you'd have to be a hater to deny that. He could definitely keep winning Slams in the coming years.

Too many LUL WUT?!? moments in the article, hard to choose which one is more hilarious than the next. But these are my personal favorites

Re: The dumbest article ever on bleacherreport ... must see it !

6 more slams is ridiculous.

1-2 is more realistic, 3 more to tie Sampras at 14 being the absolute max.

It's Bleacher Report - nothing from that can be taken seriously. Agreed that 6 seems nigh on impossible but don't agree that 14 is some sort of absolute limit - we don't know how Nadal will play on his return and we also don't know that landscape in the next few years. If Federer retires theoretically the slams may be mainly fought between just 3 players (assuming no one else steps up). Then draws, SF match ups etc. all come into it. Can see Nadal winning 2 RG, 1 Wim in the next 3 years. Another AO or Wim isn't totally out of the question.

If I had to bet I would say 3 more but nothing would surprise me. Saying 3 as everything he's said recently suggests he plans to play for as long as he can and for a good few more years - his doctors seem to think none of the damage is permanent and let's not forget he lost one set on real clay (the Madrid fiasco can't tell us much about future clay performances) this year which was only 4/5 months ago - that was to Djokovic in unusual conditions. Otherwise he fought off Ferrer twice, Djokovic 3 times and an inspired Berdych - frankly just by maintaining a clay level like that he can win 2 RG easily. One more out of the 10+ slams to 2016 seems achievable..

Back to the article though - load of nonsense. Nadal's one of the all time greats but talking about "most talented ever" etc. doesn't even merit discussion.

Those other talents than being able to hit the perfect BH or FH or serve, but they are equally useful in becoming a pro tennis player.
what Duong was elaborating upon was the fact that Nadal's groundstrokes themselves are very talented- there is a reason no other players on tour can really emulate him and hit the ball like he does; he grew up with a very unique style with extreme spin and it a very talented way to play. no one can do it because it is not easy, maybe partially due to the hard work needed, but also due to the just natural talent it takes.

this is often taken for granted, people criticize Nadal as a hack often who relies purely on his athletical prowless, yet he plays a style (and I mean as far as his groundstrokes, point construction, etc) that no other players can do in today's game or in the past. he is unique and full of talent

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

You gotta understand, that from a technical point of view, what Fed is able to do on court is simply ridiculous. The balance, timing and precision are impeccable. And please don't mention Dimitrov. That kid is all style with little substance. You know why he can't play as effectively as Fed? Because his balance, timing and precision are nowhere near Fed's level. Not to mention the difference in instinct (Well, that's not exactly technical but mental ). Dimitrov will never be as good as Fed. So, no one plays like Fed also.

Talent is the ability to do something that most find hard, more easily and do it better. There's a talent for "touch", too.
Then reason why Federers balance and precision on his shots are so good of course has to do with talent but is mostly due to hours and days and years of training. Those factors can be pretty much trained as much (of even more) than certain physical abilities. Federer can train as much as he want, he Will never have Nadals power or endurance. On the other hand I think It's "easier" for Nadal to improve his shots, precision and timing by working and training, thus proving this has maybe less to do with talent than his physical gifts.

Re: The dumbest article ever on bleacherreport ... must see it !

'The most talented player of all-time' is BS though. It's impossible to determine who is worthy of such title; first because there's not a precise definition of talent, more importantly because for all we know the most talented player ever could be someone who simply never lived up to his potential and never did anything in tennis.
