What do you think? He could get up there in Pete, Roger territory I think as long as he stays healthy. He doesn't have an achilees heel like Fed did with Roger. No real attackers and guys who force the issue anymore in the game so this gives Nole much more comfort. He may just keep collecting slams at a fast pace.

14-16 slams is too high IMO (but you never know). When it is all said and done, i see novak winning 10-11 slams.

I'd say 7-11. It very much depends. Quite very well be more.

Dear me people have short memories. Do you know how tough it is to win majors? People are just spitting out numbers. He deserves more majors but no one can predict how many he will get. If he gets 3 or 4 more then he has done a good job. He needs to tie Agassi in order to be considered one of the legends for me. He is 3 away from the great Agassi so just wait before talking double figures. A lot can change. I hope he wins more majors. Muzza deserves majors as well by the way :worship:. Ok go ahead and laugh at me for saying Muzza deserves majors.

As long as novak continues denying nadal slams, i hope he continues to win. Hell, i want novak to win slams over murray/federer as well.

He's already done a great job. :) Only 13 or 14 months ago he was still a one-slam wonder living in the Fedal shade, and no one thought he could/would do anything about it.

What will happen later is impossible to tell. Depends how healthy he is, how motivated, in what condition is his opposition, how long he can play... if he's still healthy/motivated and no new player steps in the next 3-5 years, he could do very well :)

No one enjoys watching Nadal getting his ass kicked by the Djoker more than me :D. It would be nice if Muzza could sneak a slam or 2. The problem is that had Murray beaten the Djoker Nadal would have shagged him in the final. Federer also gift wraps majors for Nadal. So as much as I like Muzza and Federer they can not be trusted to stop Nadal. Only the Djoker has the guts and the balls to do it.

Exactly. This is why i would prefer djokovic in all the finals vs nadal than murray (and ESPECIALLY federer).

Although i wouldn't mind a fed/novak final or murray/novak (granted murray doesnt suck ass)

Federer-Djokovic matches are always brilliant, great shot making from both usually. We might get a Murray-Djokovic final at the US open if luck smiles on us this year.

I dunno. Expect roger to be in his semifinal for the rest of the slams. If novak is not facing roger at this point in his career novak is essentially guaranteed the slam unless he's been in a 5 hour semi and with injuries than it could be a toss up even though he still should have put nadal away in 4 sets today.


1. Wimbledon: Roger has a 60/40 favor to win this against nole
2. Us open: I believe that now roger being 31 at this time it will no longer be a coin toss and nole should prolly get this in this what has been a 50/50 match as seen the last two years vs roger. nole's got a bit lucky as well now he won't need it.

3. French: You know normally you'd think djokovic would have a huge advantage cause its slower. But last year we saw roger play great and take that match. This year i expect novak to win easier although for some reason fed loves those babolot balls and I think the surface is easier on the body a bit and roger slides well but i'd say 70/30 nole this year here as well.

So anyways roger is his biggest obstacle in racking up slams for at least 2012. If he's facing anyone else he's got the win for sure even at RG against nadal i see a fully fit nole putting the stake in nadal for good. Any slam novak is not playing roger its as good as his. Let novak get 10 first and then let's see. He could easily not win another one till us open or potentially win them all this year.


Novak will be in an interesting time period. He's in his peak while he owns rafa mentally and rog is only declining. Murray is there but until he beats novak in a slam match and wins slams of his own i can't consider him a true threat even though he pushed him 5 sets but i dont expect murray to be in his half at most slams as history has shown. Outside of that there is no one else to hurt novak anymore.

Novak has all of 25, 26, and 27 to be in mostly his prime. The fact is even at 27 he might still be good enough to beat those around still. Only injuries will ruin his double digits slam numbers.



P.S. ITF now falsely thinks that nole-rafa will be a great final bc of weakened nole facing fresh rafa going 6 hrs. I think they'll want to keep roger in rafa's half so no chance to stop the nole-rafa final

Hopefully no more Wimbledons. One is already far too many.

Are you not a Djoko fan at least? I would love him to win more Wimbledons if Fed failed to so. Definitely prefer him to RN. He at least has a somewhat proper serve.
