"We'll get to Federer's 19, yes. It's difficult but he still has at least one Roland Garros left in him and I believe he'll get another [different] slam as well".
Toni Nadal: ?Vamos a llegar a los 19 de Federer?
Thoughts?

If Novak and Andy return to their 80% hard-court form, it will be hard for Rafa to win any HC GS more.
On Wimbledon, depends on the draw, but recently Wimbledon draws are hard for Rafa. This is more about there is recently more big-hitting grass court specialists on tour, then it is about Rafa's form on grass.

I give Rafa two more slams on RG.

You seriously think 80% Murray could beat Nadal? 50% Rafa beats 80% Murray all day on HC

With how things look now, I can see that happening.
But you never know, Rafa could get injured again ...
Djok comes back 100% +
Fed gets another (please no anything but that)

Toni usually doesn't say things like that. What as the context?

Toni is cruel! He just ensured another 10 years of nomadic life for a few children.

But what if when they reach Federer's 19, Federer himself is at 21

Well Fed needs to win more slams to stop this scenario from happening as Nadal is locked for 17 next year... and Fed will have more chances at Wimbledon if anything. Djokovic and Murray, well, I don't know how they'll return.

nothing ever is a lock.

he did not win RG twice in a row when he was younger, now he is 4 years older than that and there are quite a few clay courters around and stan/nole/any/kei are coming back aswell.

it only needs a good day of thiem/nole/murray tennis and a slightly weaker performance by rafa to fail at RG. everyone knows that, even rafa.

Rafa will surpass if not match Roger's record. Roger was on 16th in 2010. Look how fast Rafa catches up.

At this point Nadal has to be in terrible form and/or injured to lose. His worst level is still enough to beat almost anyone at RG at this point. Djokovic is pretty much the only consistent threat as Stan/Andy/Kei/Thiem etc. will likely never beat him on Bo5 clay.

i am pretty confident thiem will beat him on clay (again). rafa was top notch this year in RG, you cannot expect him to play like this for the next 3 years. at least i don't. if robin fucking soderling beat nadal during his prime, you could certainly expect an ATG like ND, an uprising claycourter like thiem or a peaking stan/murray to win against nadal - even in paris.
