Do you think Nadal will get the record for most consecutive years winning 1+ slam

He only has to nab 1 slam next year to equal Federers 8 years in a row 03-10.

Do you think he can get the all time record?

Even if hes in decline and doesnt win too many more slams I think this is one record he could really target.

He'll be the favourite at RG unless someone dethrones him, so yes, I think he can make it. It won't be as easy as some may think though.

I predict he will at least win the next 6 French Opens. That means he'll easily break the record.

Federer's also tied with Borg/Sampras.

Which suggests Nadal will find a way to not break this.

I don't think he'll ever win a Slam again so my answer is no :(

But winning a Slam 7 years in a row is a great achievement :eek:

He's too good not to win a slam in both of the next two years.

He's the best clay player.
Arguably the best grass player.
Second best hardcourter.

He'll pick up at least 2/8

Yes.

I don't see anyone besides Djokovic actually beating a decent Nadal at Roland Garros. Even if he does lose at Roland Garros I don't see him not winning another slam that year.

in slams, yes. Only Djokovic is above him.

in slams, yes. Only Djokovic is above him.

He didn't even play Federer in a hardcourtslam. and Federer was a lot closer to beating Djokovic than Nadal was to beating djokovic. I rate Federers chances higher in a hardcourt slam than Nadals.

If I make up some numbers which I feel are about fair:) I would give nadal about 55-65 percent to win RG, now Djokovic has a clear edge against him. he could very well win AO or WIM but isn't the biggest of favorites there (more like 2-4th). I would give him in total 80% to win one this year and 70% to win one next year, making it about 55% he beats the record.

Would be a really impressive achievement if he gets the record!:worship:

Of course, looking down at the players in my sig, my belief in him can only be a curse.

Obviously his best chance to do it is at Roland Garros, which I think he'll win barring injury. I think the Australian Open is his next best chance depending on how Novak goes with his recovery. If Djokovic isn't 100%, Nadal has as much chance to win it as anyone. Wimbledon is his next best chance, however I give Djokovic and Federer equal chances of winning at the All England Club.

Yes, there are at least five players with two hardcourt slams and a final.

Your blind hatred is too obvious. The only players that even have a case, are Fed and Murray. We saw what Rafa did to Andy at the US Open, plus he has infinitely more hardcourt slams than Murray.

And Federer doesn't stand a very good chance IMO to win three sets on an outdoor hardcourt in a slam, even if Rafa is on his 'average' 2011 level. It'll look like Miami all over again.

AO 2009 I know, I was looking at last season, MTF in general looks only 1 max 2 years back when looking at the form of players for the next season.:D

It is important I think, longlivety in results at the very very highest level

Gabe32
12-15-2011, 11:24 PM
I think he will. The competition is terrible. Fed, Djokovic and Nadal will grab 80-100% of the slams in the next 2 years, I think.

As for best hard court players at the moment:

1) Djokovic
2)Federer
3) Nadal/Murray

Having to choose, I think Nadal will get it done, probably at Roland Garros. At least a Major in every year from 2005 - 2013, what a stud.

how would you not consider him a top 5 hard court player when the only other player who can beat him when he's on is Djokovic....? bizarre logic. besides some fluke matches in which Nadal was MIA, Djokovic is the only one who stood in his way of winning most of the hard court titles in 2011!!

your logic is ill willed and clearly biased because it holds no ground :o

a 'not even top 5 hard court player' has been in the top 1 or 2 spots for two or three years now based on him earning the most points accumulated on hard courts and by having some of the most success.

you just make no sense. how many hard court finals did he reach in 2011? :o did he win a hard court grand slam in 2010? what other players besides Djokovic/Federer have won hard court Grand Slams recently?

it is tiring hearing haters like you state foolish things, that you would not consider Rafael Nadal a top 5 hard court player. how bitter are you of his success child

Mountaindewslave
12-16-2011, 02:44 AM
oh and directly towards the question, he can definitely do it! he will win a slam next year! obviously 2013 is the real question mark and who can really say at this point (who knows how his body will hold up the next few years), but there is a definite huge change. only 2 more years and as consistant as he is with the amount of fight in his body?

if we are speculating it on a tennis board, know for certain that this statistic has crossed the minds of his team and that he will be very hard fought to keep his consistancy with Grand Slams up over the next few years

stewietennis
12-16-2011, 03:21 AM
Nadal is probably the #4 hard court player at the moment (F in Indian Wells, Miami, US Open and Tokyo), these results are only trumped by Djokovic (W Australia, USO, Miami, Indian Wells, Montreal and F Cincinnati), Federer (W Doha, Basel, Paris, YEC and F Dubai) and Murray (W Cincinnati, Bangkok, Tokyo, Shanghai and F Australia). The results pretty much speak for themselves. You've got other players whose games are more suited to hard courts but they still fail to achieve any significant results.

HKz
12-16-2011, 03:37 AM
I am slightly in doubt of 2012. Could be like 2008, however, where Nadal had several heartbreaks in 2007 after doing very well in 2006 only to come back with a couple of tight wins during the clay season and then playing amazing at Roland Garros after getting some confidence back. However, those 6 losses with Djokovic may linger with him at the biggest of occasions, as we have seen him falter mentally here and there throughout the years.

Yes, obviously he is very strong mentally, but look at a player like Federer who had many, many emotionally tough matches especially against Nadal, only to come back to win big events. Nadal sometimes does seem to fade for a few months at a time after some bad losses.

People have such short memories :rolleyes: Nadal was playing great tennis at the USO, and would've definitely beaten Roger there, and everyone knew it. Just because you have the WTF in mind, doesn't mean it was the case back then. Rafa was playing some great tennis, and let's take a look at the rock, paper scissors theory again.

Djokovic beats Nadal
Federer beats Djokovic
Nadal beats Federer

And Federer couldn't even beat Novak, Rafa would've ripped him to shreds in straights, maybe in 4. If I remember correctly, weren't some Federer fans relieved Djokovic won, so that Nadal 'wouldn't routine Fed again'? :facepalm:

Don't think we should count the indoor results, it plays so different to outdoor hardcourts. Especially since we're talking about slams here, and the fact that Federer owns Nadal indoors, says absolutely zero about what's going to happen when they meet at the AO or USO.

Nadal decides what happens at Roland Garros, Novak better hope he can make it to a final there at least once in his career.

Federer and Nadal have never played at the US Open, so it seems a bit presumptuous to say that because Nadal's beating him in slow outdoor hard courts like Miami and IW, he'd do it at the Open. I have history on my side (5 time open champ) at the very least for my reasoning of thinking that Fed would win that match up in New York.

Gonzales won a a slam 12 years running, 1948-1959, 14 if you count the Pro Tour in 1960 and his 1961 exploits.

But Open Era, Sampras, Nadal, and Fed have 8 years in a row. Laver won 1 slam 9 of 10 years. Rosewall won 1 slam 10 years of 11.

latso
04-16-2013, 03:16 PM
This RG should be the hardest of them all for Rafa and i believe Wimby is out of question pretty much.

We're underestimating Murray on clay, but watch him this year dirting his way up to the semies and from there on you never know.

Apart from Djokovic ofc, who should be a real challenge for Rafa to overcome, especially this year.

He only has a 50% of chances at Rg if he face No1e.

After Rg, The World #1 has more chances to capture W + UO together than Nadal to take any of these single slams.
The rest of the big 4 doesn't stand a chance because neither of Olderer and Mugray can't beat Nadal and Nole one after another, on any tournament.
