I don't think it will motivate him as much.
But he will definitely try to improve, mostly just to break that 16 slam record.
Right now the situation is very funny.
Every single time Federer is denied a slam, he's in a bit of a panic. His goal was to reach 20 because he felt that Nadal would stop somewhere around 18.
But now that Djokovic is stable, he can ruin Nadal' plans and help Federer at the same time.
Kind of a strange situation.
Regardless of the circumstances, I believe Nadal will break that 16 slam mark.
surprising coming from u, u are a very sesible poster.
nadull's tally stops at 10.
i'll bet my life savings on it.
