rafa wins the 'calendar slam' in 2011!

anticaria
09-16-2010, 02:18 PM
if a year ago, someone had suggested rafa would win majors on all 3 surfaces in 2010, many of us would've scratched our heads in disbelief.. and even after rafa's heartbreaking loss to murray at the aussie open this year, the notion of rafa suddenly going on to win the remaining 3 majors seemed still out of the question..

and yet, that's exactly what rafa managed to do..

and now that rafa's healthy and has fully regained his confidence once again and put his annus horribilis of 2009 (as well as the nearly year-long slump that followed it) behind him, can anyone really doubt 2011 will finally be rafa's calendar slam year?

a healthy, and hence a confident rafa simply cannot be derailed at the majors at this rate, regardless of surface.. murray's never done it, the djoker's never done it, delpo's never done it, roger did it only twice during his prime ('06 and '07 wimbledon finals) but since then, nada.. and at the current rate of roger's decline, i seriously doubt the swiss will be the one to derail rafa next year at the majors..

the mallorcan with the 'golden' career slam touch will enter the record books in a huge way next year by becoming the first man to win all 4 majors on 3 different surfaces (clay, grass and hc) in the same calendar year..

2009 served as the catalyst to take rafa's game to a whole new level of all-surface mastery and confidence and that level has not been matched by anyone at the majors so far this year..

that said, is there anyone out there who still doubts rafa can pull off the historic 'calendar slam' feat next year? if so, how so?

I doubt it.

Federer fans (and the media) thought at one time that Federer could win the Grand Slam rather easily since he was racking up three slams a year, and it did seem that way, but there is always something out there to derail the process. For Federer it was the hurdle of RG. For Rafa it will probably be something we don't foresee now.

The odds are against it.

And it pains me to see Nadal fans doing this sort of crappy predicting of future glory. Nothing is a given in tennis.

AO is most important slam of 2011, so he gets RAFA SLAM. And after that the main aim should be RG/WIM cos they're simply his 2 favorite slams. USO is just a bonus, not significant. Sure he would like the Calendar Year GS but really he's already proven enough at that point with 6 straight slams. No drama if he loses USO.

I agree, that's for sure a life-changing slam, it would shock the world to win 4 straight slams. I say he's got a good chance of cruising through that. Hasn't dropped many sets there in recent times. 2009 didn't lose a set before the semis. 2010 had some comfortable wins before Murray.

09-16-2010, 03:59 PM
He did accomplish it in the open era, 1969. But, he didn't do it on three different surfaces. So, this would be the first genuine calender slam on hard, grass, and clay. He's a long way from doing it though. I don't think it's all that likely.

I do think it's more likely than not, though, that he'll win the AO 2011. That would give him the non-calendar slam which is just as significant as the calender slam.

I doubt it. Rocket lives in the States now and he's getting up there in years. Great accomplishment for Nadal if he does it though. And if the post-USO threads on gm are any indication, there should be a spirited discussion whether or not the "Rafa Slam" is greater or less than Rocket's '69 CYGS.

it wasn't r garros that was the hurdle for roger.. it was rafa who was the hurdle.. roger made 4-consecutive finals in paris ('06-'09) and only won it once the actual hurdle (rafa) was removed from his path..

so again, it wasn't anything to do per se with roland garros as the swiss' remarkable consistency in reaching the final there clearly shows.. instead, it was the guy he faced from '05-'08 who became his hurdle..

3 slams in 3 months on 3 different surfaces might never happen again! Please just let Rafa and his fans enjoy this incredible accomplishment of 2010. If he can win Australia next year, that would be phenominal. But it is ridiculous to expect 4 slams from Rafa next year. These are great times for Rafa and his fans, it is not worth any mind space thinking about a calendar grand slam in 2011.

Because slams is what counts :retard:

Will people remember Federer's second round loss to Benneteau in 2009 Paris masters? Hell, no. They will remember the 2 slams he won.

Will people remember Nadal lost to Melzer in Shanghai? Hell, no. They will remember his clay season and 3 slams he won.

Nobody gives a shit about non slam masters events unless a player has a record number of them, which is Nadal anyway, so spare the dumb comments, Nadal is not going to win all the time, certainly not after a year he's had on his worst surface when he lacks motivation. The anti-Nadal trolls are seriously grasping for straws recently, it's pathetic :o

BlueSwan
10-16-2010, 07:08 PM
I think he CAN do it, but the odds are against it. Look at it this way: Even if we make RG11 a 95% certainly, AO11 a 85% certainty, Wimbledon a 75% certainty and US Open a 60% certainty, that adds up to a 36% chance of winning them all. So even with percentages WAY above what's reasonable (except for RG) he's still twice as likely to not complete the CYGS as he is not to do it.

If anyone can do it, it's him. However, completing a CYGS would mean Nadal winning 7 slams in a row, which is just ridiculous, and would probably catapult him to undisputed GOAT status.

take some medicine before you vomit up more nonsense. He clearly stated why Nadal; fans in general are more realistic than Federer fans. I have seen so many Federer fans blind their eyes and deaf their ears wheneveer someone suggests that Nadal can overtake Federer for most slam wins.

I do not think nadal will win the CYGS. I hoep he can but it is too hard to accomplish today.

But he has a better chance than Federer ever did, because Federer was a clown on clay then when he got better on the surface clay warrior Rafa came around and Federer could not beta him to save Bern.

Did the Fed fans start threads such as "Federer will win the calendar slam in 2011"? no. Did the Fed fans claim that he would have the slam record when he only held 9 of them? No...

Rafatards are the realistic ones, indeed :yeah:


:retard:

Why is half the time on this forum spent talking about the "fans" of players, rather than the players themselves? As if the most significant fact about someone is the tennis player they support, from which you're to determine everything from their intelligence to their maturity.

Implicit is the assumption that there must be something wrong with fans of a player you don't like; eg. the message in this thread: 'if you're a Fed fan you're blind or deluded'. It's the same stupid tribalist BS seen everywhere, only on this forum it's Fed fans vs Nadal fans. If this was a gaming forum, instead, it would be 360 fans vs PS3 fans.

Gets very tiresome.

You're right; I guess it's too much to ask fans of competing players to respect each other. Enjoy the Nadal vs. Federer wars.

Possible if injury free, but not probable. Look how close Fed came in 2006. The calendar glam will eventually be achieved again. I'd considered someone way better than Laver if they were able to do it. Laver played a different game in a different time. Competition level was nothing compared to today. In the future people will probably look back and say the same of Fed and Nadal

Rafa is the GOAT

Nobody can stop Rafa if he is healty
Realy there will be no stop in Rafa in slams
If he continius to scheulde his calender good so he gets no injuries or gets tired
I will give him a big chance of winning the CYGS
Vamos!
