There's still a good chance that neither record will fall.

The Wimby record is more likely to fall.

Wimbledon has been won 3x by McEnroe; 5x by Federer and Borg; and 7x by Sampras.

In contrast, the French Open has been won 3x by Lendl, Wilander, and Kuerten; 4x by Nadal; and 6x by Borg.

The pattern is repeated on the women's side:

Wimbledon has been won 3x by Evert, 4x by King in the Open era, 7x by Graf, and 9x by Navratilova.

In contrast, the French Open has been won 3x by Sanchez-Vicario and Seles, 4x by Henin, 6x by Graf, and 7x by Evert.

It would seem that FO records are harder to break.

so you`re not prepared to go out on a limb [easier to sit on the fence];)
...

I`ll call it 7x for each>> meaning FED equals Sampras @ Wimby, & RAFA breaks Borg`s record @ FO:cool:

whereas FED is nearly 27yrs

French is more likely to fall. Both need 3 more to break record and Nadal is much younger than Federer so will have a lot more chances. Plus he's much more dominating on clay than Roger is on Grass. Not only does Roger have to worry about Nadal at Wibmledon, but also he has to worry about hitting a big server on the wrong day. Nadal, what worries does he have at the French, just injury.

after this year`s FO & Wimby are complete i`m beginning to think:

*RAFA will win 6 FO titles
*RAFA will win 3 Wimby titles
*RAFA might win 1 AO or USO
*FED will win 6 Wimby titles
*FED will win 6 USO titles
*FED will win 4 AO titles

The French Open record is likely to fall in hands of Rafa, is he doesn't suffer any illness in three years time from now; he might be the winner of the next three FO remainers. He has no competition there.
