How Many Slams Will Roger Win Next Year?

The matches against his opponents are getting tougher and tougher. Obviously the other guys are getting tired of Roger winning and getting hungrier, too. While Roger is motivated to shatter records, I'd say putting food on the plate is a far better motivator. I foresee Roger winning only a couple of slams the next two years.

Re: How Many Slams Will Roger Win Next Year?

I dont think overall his matches are getting tougher. He has a hd a couple tough matches at the end of this year but overall he still wins pretty easily. He only droped one set at Wimbledon, 2 at the US open, he played near perfect in Japan, Paris, and Basel. When he is pumped and in his zone no one stands a chance.


Next year will be 3 or 4

Re: How Many Slams Will Roger Win Next Year?

All five answers carry strictly positive probability but zero and four are very unlikely. The funny thing is that the highest probability of winning all four was at the end of 2003, when nobody was talking seriously about the possibility of doing that.

None. He's chucking tennis to take up a career in runway modeling in Anna Wintour's private boudoir.

Re: How Many Slams Will Roger Win Next Year?

Wow, there are more people voting for all 4. I would like to think that he will win all 4 but I don't think that is realistic. It will be very difficult to top 2006. Some of the young guns will start playing with consistency and some of the players around Roger's age will pick up their game.

I think starting next year, he will have a Sampras like career, winning 1-2 slams every year for the next three years. I sincerely hope one of them is RG.

Need ideas for a new signature...

He will win either 3 or 4. If he wins 3 I think he loses in Australia.

5 Slams

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: How Many Slams Will Roger Win Next Year?

With all the young players improving, the new and improved and STILL improving Roddick, Nalbandian still playing a high level and Kiefer and Joachim Johansson returning for a full year I would be surprised if he won 3. 2 maybe, but no more.

Blake has the confidence to win at high levels so that makes him a threat at AO and USO.

Don't forget, Puerta the clay king will return.
