Well, I see Nole getting to around 12 slams. I also think that Rafa is not done yet; he will always be dangerous on clay and wimbledon

Too premature, Federer lost a close 5 set match against a tough player in the first major of the year and suddenly he is doing being a threat to Murray and Djokovic? Did we not have this same discussion last year? or two years ago when he was supposedly done winning majors.

Nadal is not finished either, he will do fine during the clay court season. Who is to say that some youngster will not improve greatly in the next year.

Surprise defeats happen even though they are more rare lately. Delpo got on fire and crushed Nadal at the USO and then beat Federer at one of his favorite major's, nobody saw that coming. The same is the cards for Djokovic, can't win everything.

Unfortunately for Novak his favored surface is also the favored surface of the elite players . So he is vulnerable to the random upset.
Nadull had little completion on clay .

Unlikely but no impossible.

i.will2 Nadal will be back winning slams sooner than the OP thinks. He won 3 straight slams the year before Novak did so I don't think we can count him out till we see him back out there.

^ before Djokovic fans get mad, Djokovic and even Murray move faster on hardcourts than Federer and Nadal ever have in my opinion.

Re: Will Nole surpass Nadal's GS count at the end of their career?

At the moment Djokovic seems like the favorite for the AO and USO when he is fit, and have a chance to win one of the other two. Personally I expect him two win around 2 slams on average a year with this form. About 6-9 more to pass Nadal? So that is roughly 4 years at his current form and the form of the current competition.

But fitness and also confidence can drop anytime, Djokovic relies heavily on both. His serve and forehand(two most important shots in tennis) are decent for top10 level but he can't really make the difference with these shots. Other top10 members will come in the next 4 years with a better serve and/or a better fh than Djokovic and Djokovic must be faster than them also when he is 29 if he is to pass Nadal in my opinion.

Federer (and Nadal on clay) had in their prime super movement but also the best shots, so at that time they looked more dominant than Djokovic now. I think they were able to win a couple of slams when they were not at their peak fitness due to their better shots when their movement was all of a sudden not that superior . So for them it was fitnesswise easier to be in contention for slams so many years.

I don't expect Djokovic to get more slams when he leaves the top3. And keeping his fitness at this level for another 4 years will be hard. He has been sliding the hardcourts at top level since 2007... But on the other hand when I saw him doing that in 2007 I thought he would go the hewitt road with his fitness. The guy must have the perfect body to move around a tennis court.

Yeah I think he will certainly win many more slams, although I'm not so convinced that he will catch up with Nadal is all. I think last year showed us how quickly things can change in tennis.

I'd say he has about 1-2 years max to dominate like he did in 2011 and he hardly ever brings that level to court nowadays.

And the 5 slams in 2 years is a bit misleading in my opinion. 3 of those 5 were won in one year on the form of his life, and 3 of those 5 were won on one surface [AO]. Yes he can do it but realistically he won't do it I think, especially if Nadal wins more slams. I'd give Djokovic 10-11 slams max. Winning slams is not an easy feat.
