so basically
F - 17 ---> 18
N - 11 ---> 13
D - 6 ---> 9
M - 1 ---> 5
Great Job
I hope you right

Nadal may not be same Nadal. I Don't see him win any more

Andy May get 5 slams. Djoker would get more than 9 slams. Maybe 11
Federer go get one more which should be very possible

I will agree with this, exactly my thoughts.

There's only one clay slam per year (and a half if you include Wimbledon week 2).

Djokovic has only 599.

But good and sensible post.Frankly,I'm surprised that all but one had said that Djokovic will have 3+ more (bringing his total to 9+),considering that even some of the bigger haters have votted.

Would you bunch them up at the French Open to bring his total to 10 – and possibly cementing his ranking in the top 3 for three more years?
Or would you spread them out between the AO, Wimbledon and USO so he has two career grand slams – for one last three major season – and possibly one more year at the #1 spot – but then tainting his record at the FO?
I'd go for either 3 FOs or 2 FOs and a Wimbledon. Don't see him winning on hardcourt anymore.

They will lose a step or two and as we have seen, that can be enough to start a domino effect as far as one´s game is concerned. Meanwhile, the young guns will improve (just how much remains to be seen) and therefore, the distance between the top 4 and the rest that looks so huge right now might become surprisingly small by then. But let´s stretch that period a bit: by the end of 2015/beginning of 2016, every member of the top 4 will have won the bulk of their slams and will have ceased to be dominant, is my predicition. Only an incidental slam might be won by them afterwards.
Yes. I miscounted. But still, I think they have more years of domination (at least Murray and Djokovic). And even when the next generation steps up, they can still win a slam after that.

That's only 7 slams for the top 4. Less than 2 years. Murray and Djokovic are only 25. Nadal is 26 (although given his current situation is understandable if someone thinks he won't win a lot more). Do you see Tomic or Dimitrov or Harrison beating Djokovic or Murray in two years from now?? And neither of the top four wining a single slam after that time? (Federer will be to old, but not the rest). They won't dominate for ever, but they will prbably dominate more than the next 7 slams. I don't see anyone from the new generation beating Murray or Djokovic soon (not even Federer). The only one who can stop the top 4 from wining slams is Del Potro maybe.
