As little as i like him.....who is going to oppose him? Unless Djokovic can keep this level up, he will be favourite in 2 or 3 of next year´s slams. And he would be sitting on 12 slams right now if it weren´t for Djokovic´s rise.

Thank god somebody had the balls to do it!

More. Come on guys calm down. Last year he had a QF, W, F, F. How is this an ugly result?

The funny thing was if he hadn't had that QF injury it would have probably been another final.

I can see him win two slams this year, if he can figure out Djokovic and maintain his serve.

In 2007 Fed at W, W, F, W & Masters Cup win. In 2008 he was beat down by Novak and Rafa in three of the slams and pushed to three tight sets by Novak in the USO final. It's not an ugly result, but results from the previous year are in no way an indication of future results.

That said, I think he will probably win a few more RGs and maybe Wimbledon another time, but I don't think he will win another AO or USO.

Federer beat Mugray relatively comfortably in USO 2008, not Novak - are you talking about 2007, perhaps? He also went on to win 2 slams next year and lost 2 very tight 5 set slam finals as well. Olderer's 2009 after his supposed "slump" trumps his 2005 season IMO.

Stop posting this shit already. Nobody gives a shit about Mugray and his MM tournaments. Come back when he wins a slam - although I feel sorry for the loser as he'll be crowned a mug for life for losing a slam final to Clownray :sad:

Nadal and Djokovic are a already lock for every GS final for a hell of a long time. This is inarguable. Probably till 2016.

Djokovic may win the majority of them, but if Nadal manages to reverse the head to head which I suspect he will (by getting his serve back which should be easy) - he may win as many as 25 slams in his career.

Sunset of Age
10-17-2011, 12:43 PM
One or two more seems very likely, maybe even more, but predictions like these are of course just a shot in the dark. As long as a player is still doing well (and Rafa is, let that be clear), people tend to overestimate the future success, but chances are just as much there that the flow of big titles runs dry immediately, as it did for many greats in the past - especially when said player gets beyond the age of 25. We'll see. :)

Nadal and Djokovic are a already lock for every GS final for a hell of a long time. This is inarguable. Probably till 2016.

as much as it is somewhat hopeful guessing more than 5 more slams, it is purely delusional guessing 0-2. even in a relatively bad year (2011) Nadal won a slam. he is far too good and is dealing with his injury prone body far too well for such a low guess. as Topspin said already, he will be a huge favorite at RG virtually every year he plays at the tournament and his healthy

he will remain a huge threat at Wimbledon and even the HC slams for a few more years and his form has been pretty good of late. if he can just find his serve, the only person out there who can truly beat him is Novak Djokovic, and that's assuming Djokovic is playing well himself

Nadal is falling, are you not seeing that?? Nadal's game is being exposed on hardcourt more often now and more players will start to know how to play him. Nadal's days are running out. If he's wanting to win another slam, it better be RG next because he's not getting anymore if he doesn't win that one. NADAL IS DONE.

Nadal and Djokovic final at end of every GS until 2016. That is a lock, there is not much you can argue against that - cuz who the hell could possibly stop them before the final of any slam? Maybe Federer, but his time is SERIOUSLY running out.

Nadal will get as many as 50% of those Nadal/Djokovic finals so if you work it out that's 10 more slams out of 20 more slam finals taking his total to 20 slams.

And when he loses it means he wasn't healthy so this doesn't actually say anything about his chances :o Nadull is done, if you need to say he had an "injury" year and was forced to retire like 2009 to cope with it you're allowed (I'm sure he will :rolleyes:)

no the injury excuses in general are very lame, but Nadal is doing fine. it was an ok year, and maybe he didn't train quite as hard as in the past, and it was quite obvious that Nadal was not physically as well off as in the past. let us not forget, in 2011 the serve definitely was missing something also

players adjust and train appropriately given their goals and previous success, it is a shame that you are so desperate to expect or HOPE that Nadal does not care about going for records. he will regroup, get on the right diet, and come back better to win slams

you are so quick to explain it as 'other players discovering something' but in reality the players that have beat him on hard court are not doing anything PARTICULARLY special or different than in the past. they are taking advantage of his backhand (everyone has known the backhand was his weaker side for a long time) and they have had a great days, going for their shots, really feeling the ball

but the truth is, Nadal's losses in 2011 are not so much based off of the competition improving as much as his own game declining temporarily both mentally and physically. his head has not been on quite as tight as in the past, and his diet appears worse than in the past given he is not moving as well. add the fact that his serve was missing something this year and you have your answers as to why 2011 was a bit dissapointing for him

Any more than that is pushing it. If this were a bookie event, I imagine 2 more would be the betting favorite.

Nadal was dominated by Djokovic this year. But can Nole keep this up? What if he gets seriously injured? Who else can challenge Nadal? Federer is getting old. Murray can't do it on clay and grass. Tomic, Harrison, Raonic are still too young and inexperienced. If DelPo can get back to his top form, then he's the likely candidate.

He has 5 years of playing great tennis. 5 X 4 = 20 slams he'll be competing in. Even if Djok wins 10 of those and Murray say he wins 2....that is still 8 slams up for grabs and there is no one showing any potential of being the next big thing out there...So Fed will could win one more but Nadal will almost certainly win the remaining 7 ;)

rickcastle
10-19-2011, 07:19 AM
^I don't think Nadal still has 5 good years left in his tank. I'd say 3 tops.

And in those 5 years, do we really not see new great players emerging? Right now it looks like it, but it's not always going to be just Federer, Djokovic, Murray and Nadal competing for slams. Nadal himself seemed to come out of nowhere and just won the first Roland Garros he joined. Maybe the next big thing will surprise us in that way too.

If Nadal was only able to rack up 10 slams in his 10 years of playing pro tennis, how can you say he will rack up 7 more in 5 years playing in his twilight years?

Nekromanta

Rafa is the real deal and the most professional player imo. Will not be surprised if he comes out with much sharper game next year, especially the BH. Do I care? Not really, not even if he cannot win even 1 more GS but I think he will, he's just too stable mentally and physically... and with his hunger to constantly improve his game he will be very dangerous for many more years...
