I will make Rodre Fegassi's post for him so he doesn't have to bother. Nadal and Djokovic will split the next twenty slams up to and including the 2016 season. This means Nadal will finish with 20 slams and Djokovic with 14 slams. It is a lock. Blah Blah Blah.

So, in the next 4 and a half, 5 years, we will have Djokovic with 7, Rafa with 5, Muzza with 4, Delpo, Roger and Tsonga - 1. One unknown let for some young gun in between...

And then, a new era will begin...

Ferrer-0 (Nothing promising at all, flat out sucks)
Berdych-0 (Mentally weak, footwork is poor, should have probably had one, but it's too late now)
Dimitrov-0 (Nothing promising either)
Tsonga-1 (Late bloomer, history of injuries, inconsistent, so probably a surprise type winner at most)
Dolgopolov-0 (I don't see anything promising)

this is for quite a few years to come. I think Federer might win one more next season and I think that Nadal and Djokovic will mainly split the Grand Slams for next couple of years with Murray and a few young guns in the mix winning an odd one here and there.

Dimitrov and Tomic are entirely wild cards though, who knows. think that guys like Dolgo and Tsonga and Berdych in the next 5 years or so, all have a fairly good chance of making surprise runs.

Haha, you're cruel man. Stop being sarcastic. I'm sure the guy will win one day, I mean it sucks to be 24 and still without slams. But you have to remember, guys like Soderling made late attempts at some decent runs.

Murray won't be a dangerous competitor in the level of Djokovic, Nadal, Federer. But I'm sure like Safin and Hewitt, he'll take a few slams for himself, and be remembered as an individual representing Great Britain that finally won a slam since a really long time.

Tomic? Slow guys don't win multiple slams anymore. Lots of guys can hit a good ball. But you gotta be able to play defense too.

Slow? He can improve his speed. He troubled Djokovic and beat Fish,Soderling already. He was a tough opponent for Nadal at the AO. Guy needs to improve his footwork no doubt.

You cannot teach speed. If you're born slow, you'll always be slow. To the non-athletes amongst us, that might not be apparent. Court quickness and overall speed will always be a weakness for Tomic. That said, he could improve his footwork, which would help his movement, reaction, and anticipation a little bit.

Any top 50 guy can trouble an elite player on a given day. That's a prerequisite for being top 50. But to win a GS you have to dominate good players back to back to back. I can see him winning a few big matches. But plenty of guys will also give him trouble. To dominate you can either outgun opponents with huge serve and groundies or return everything like a wall. Tomic is a master of neither. So I just can't see him winning any slams.

Maybe I'm being too optimistic, but I think once he wins the first slam(if he does) he might win a a lot. Maybe Lendl like results.

Fedal will only win 1 more slam between them.
Djoko and Muzzah will end up with a similar number of slams.
Del Po is finished winning slams.
Berdych, Soderling or Tsonga will win a slam, but not all three, and probably only 1.

Pospisil and Dimitrov(the cute ones) are the only prospective multi-slam winners- Ryan Harrison might win the US Open in a Roddick like fashion(with a lot of help from the organizers and fans).

If you look into the future 4 years, there's 16 grand slam titles to be won. Either the big 3 all end up with huge tallies or some new comers take a few for themselves. Even with Nadal at 14 and Djokovic at 10 for example, there's several more slams to spread around. Raonic is the only youngster whom I can imagine stealing one at this point. More contenders will emerge, but I haven't seen evidence of it yet.

Hah, yeah, maybe cuz the old man hasn't won a slam in 2 years? What makes you think he can win one next year? You do realize there's no indoor slam and he always looks good this time of the year... he'll transform into Quarterer/Shankerer/Chokerer the moment he steps on a grand slam court.

Del Potro- 2 (hard to tell but he'll probably win 1 more)
Tomic- 2+ (good enough to at least win 2 imo, apart from that it's too much to predict)
Ferrer- 0 (old)
Berdych- 0 (old)
Dimitrov- ?? (Will either become another Gasquet or win multiple slams, too much to predict at this point)
Tsonga- 0 (can see him make the finals a few times, but mentally not good)
Dolgopolov- 0 (too old and inconsistent)
Harrison- 1+ (he has too much fight not to win one, but it's too much to predict after that)
Raonic- 0 or 1 (might get a Wimbledon title, I can see him make the finals a lot though)

So 14 more for Rafa. Reasonable enough...
3 per year during the next 4 years and 2 more in 2016, in his 30s.
Finally MTF comes to its senses...
But, wait, where do u insert those 10 for Djokovic? Maybe Tiriac will get his 5th slam? Especially for the Djoker?

Simple, Nadal and Djokovic will dominate the tour for far longer than even their most optimistic fans would have expected.

The next generation is so bad that they will probably be a completely slamless generation.

Fed- 17
Nadal- 15
Djokovic- 12
Murray- 1 (collective Brit praying is bound to injure rafa/nole for 1 tournament, right?)
Del Potro- 4 (probably wishful thinking but God I hope so)
Ferrer- 0
Berdych- 0
Tsonga- 1 (he has one brilliant run in him a la DelPo USO '09)
Dolgopolov- 0

I see Tomic/Harrison/Dimitrov/Raonic as the transition generation until the next great generation grows up. Nothing extraordinary in any of those guys so they'll probably share a few each from what's up for grabs after rafa/nole come down to earth.

And, there goes my first post after a long time of lurking.

Welcome, it'll get easier from now on :yeah:

Anyway, time to get to it, how long do you think these guys will be on top... 13 extra slams for Fed/Rafa/Djokovic alone. 6 more for DPot/Murray/Tsonga.

All of these guys are just about at their peak right now, or past it. And they will win 19 slams? That's 4,75 years, at least.

Fed - 21 (will collect slams after nadull's and djoko's peak. Will always be favorite at Wimbledon and US open)
Nadal - 11. One FO in 2 or 3 years. Maybe.
Djokovic - 9
Murray - 6. Only one missing will be FO. His slam collection will start next year
Del Potro - 2. If he's lucky.
Tomic - 3. Not before a long long time though, mabye 2016.
Ferrer - 0. No talent, not good enough 'diet'= won't win anything.
Berdych - 0. Not happening.
Dimitrov -1. Fluke run maybe.
Tsonga - 2. He has to hurry though, or else he'll be too old. His first slam win will give him the confidence for the second. So it's either 0 or 2.
Dolgopolov - 0. Too inconsistent, his gameplan is too risky.

When you put it that way, the numbers seem ridiculous, don't they?
Let's see if I can justify my major guesswork (or big pile of bullsh*t). I can't see anyone but those 6 winning majors for the next 5 years. Let's give Fed and Tsonga a bonus Wimby (Fed sooner of course) and Andy an Oz trophy next year. Rafa/Nole share everything else until their bodies can't take it anymore (say 2015ish) which is when DelPo takes advantage and wins a couple more USOs and an Oz. Then the current youngsters come into play.

Can't believe I just wrote that. All that did is to make me appreciate the numbers Roger/Rafa already won.

God knows what will happen in the future but I'll give it a shot to entartain myself.

Federer - 17
Nadal - 13
Djokovic - 11
Murray - 2
Del Potro - 1
..............

the rest - 0 except these so called "young guns" who will probably shine in the future after the top 4 fade away...Tomic might be the leader of the new new generation which i'm not happy about...

Federer - 17 - can't see how he'll do it right now - beating both Novak & Rafa seems a tough ask for him BUT you can always have a RG09 type situation and feel like there's one good fortnight left in him.
Nadal - 14/15 - perhaps partly wishful thinking as a fan but think he actually seems much more motivated about tennis this last month or so than he has since 2010 to be honest - it was telling that he said in his Aus Open speech that he'd be back for many more years - don't see him quitting this year or next like seemed a possibility last year. So giving him at least 3 more good seasons I say at least 2 more French Opens, 1/2 more Wimbledons, 1/2 more HC slams - he got to the finals of the Aus Open and the US Open without incredible form - it's clear in best of 5 he still has an edge.
Djokovic - 9/10 - strangely I get the feeling his long term motivation will be less than Nadal's - he's very very motivated this year but he seems to have so many other interests and passions that I'm not sure I see him at the top for the next 3 years for example. See him getting a 1/2 more Aus Opens, 1/2 more US Opens & potentially a French Open - best chance for that is this year. Also there are more contenders for the Aus Open and US Open (Del Potro, Murray etc.) than for Nadal's 2 favourites - Wimbledon and Roland Garros.
Murray-3 - time seems to be running out a bit but he has 3 slams he can do well at - Wimby, Aus Open, US Open - have to think he'll get a few somehow... In fact think he may get US Open this year.

If, as seems likely Fedalovic end up with 35-40 slams this really has to be the strongest top 3 and strongest era - if it isn't that already. To me this helps all the guys in terms of their legacy but especially Nadal and Djokovic. People will look at Djokovic beating Nadal in 3 out of 5 slams; Nadal beating Fed or Djokovic for 7 of his 10 (including Fed on grass & hard and Novak on hard i.e. their best surfaces) and know that they didn't build their slam count by beating also-rans - they were competing against fellow all-time greats.

Reading this thread and looking at some of the numbers I just wonder how many GS titles people think are actually on stake in the upcoming two or three years. Or whether they think the current crop of top players have eternal life as a top player. ;)

Hah, yeah, maybe cuz the old man hasn't won a slam in 2 years? What makes you think he can win one next year? You do realize there's no indoor slam and he always looks good this time of the year... he'll transform into Quarterer/Shankerer/Chokerer the moment he steps on a grand slam court.

The man is done, face it.

How do you people come up with these names? :spit: :spit: :haha: :haha: :haha:
