Easy with the name calling there. I am a fan of his too and wish him the best and want to see him 100% healthy I just said ''IF'' and there is a possibility he might not be 100% from here on. You really need to ''calm down''. Jeez.

I have a feeling Nole is going to win 1 more slam and then get owned in slams

Nole is very capable of winning RG like he proved last year. So I'd say he will probably win 1 or 2.

I could see Djokovic winning six more slams. Two AO, two USO and two RG.

Since he's coming back next week, it means he's healthy, right? Otherwise he wouldn't be coming back. And he already said the goal is to play at least until the 2016 Olympics.
I can understand the hype from Djokovic fans but as a Nadal fan you should have a bit more faith in your favourite player.
Just imagine how different these threads would have been if Djokovic would have lost this match. He would have been slamless for more than a year. Now all of a sudden he's going to win everything.

Rafa can win any GS, if he finds his good form again after the injury. But Djokovic can reach 10-11 Slams, that's for sure.

It wouldn't have mattered if he had lost this final. What counts is he was in the other 3 finals.

It depends will Rafa get back to his usual level.If not, No1e's chances of winning RG this year are very big, which in turn means he can win Wimby and USO(or at least one of them).That'd be either 8 or 9 slams for No1e at the age of 26.

He can only if he prevents Nadal from winning any more RGs. Imagine if Novak won RG last year - 7 against 10 sounds doable. If RN wins RG this year again, 6-12 would look nigh impossible.

No. Federer and Murray can beat him on grass. Apparently Del Potro as well.

No more Wimbledons for Djokovic.

Nadal will beat Djokovic everywhere when he returns.

But it doesn't mean they will. Think about it, when Fed is gone (or decines more), Nadal having problems with his knees, that leaves Murray to stop him year after year? Do you really think Murray can dominate Wimbledon? Win like 4 or 5 Wimbledons in a row? Murray may be slightly better than him on grass, but the difference isn't that big. At the end of the day, Novak is a Wimbledon champion and Murray isn't and that makes him a more successful grass court player than Murray, at least atm. Are you willing to bet on Murray that he'll beat Novak on grass 5 times in 5 matches? Murray's grass game (even tho very good) is overrated.

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

If Djokovic retires or goes into serious decline this season it will be impossible for him to catch up.

Sure, it looks improbable, but since retirement/decline is hypothesized for everyone else, I thought it would be rude to leave him out of it.
