Speaking a bit too soon aren't you? But yes there is a possibility for that to happen, which would hand Nole 5 Slams on the trot, an achievement that I would hold in higher regard than a CYGS. rafa's strategically brain numbing boring retrieving game though works best on the red clay of Roland Garros so I'd hold out some hope yet, if I were you.

With slams played instead of successive slams, Connors has achieved this twice

Nadal's best year was 2008, and sorry to split it to the tards, but despite a fantastic showing at the USO 2010, he's been on the downslide ever since as well. I refuse to judge on mere results, I judge on what I'm seeing these guys demonstrate in the sense of pure quality of tennis at any tennis tournament I watch.

That said, it's even more remarkable that both of these giants still manage to rack up great results in GS tournaments. Reaching semifinals, QFs, let's not even talk about reaching FINALS, is nothing to piss on when having such a huge mileage as both of them have. Rather the contrary: it's a genuine sign of their true greatness.

Any player who still manages to consistantly rack up results like theirs is still in the running to grab a major title. They may well need a bit of luck to get there though - but luck is anyone's guess. Ask Sampras, ask Agassi for this matter.
You are a true FEDAL fan.

very very rare indeed.

And if he is good enough, the same will most likely happen to Nole with the next dominant player.

I see many moonballer yards awaiting a reversal
Of fortune vs Novak, it's just a short term
Phenomenon , get real since Madrid 2009
Nadulls h2h with Novak is 10-2 . It took and
Easy draw & Nadulls best serving to win the
USO 2010 plus a tired Novak.
This so called rivalry is headed in on direction
Big time .
Even when nadull was beating Novak is was because
Of superior stamina not his game.
That factor has been removed so it's go into
Get really ugly.
He will be destroyed on clay with Novak eating
His WTA serve for breakfast.

Care to expand on just how come Rafa is a fraud on grass? I'd say WB 2007 and 08 prove he is nothing of the sort, no need to mention the way he swope the floor with Murray in 2010 & 11.

i usually don't agree with samanosuke but in this case he is completely right. how can you say its a plus and only 'helps Nadal's resume' to get to the finals of Grand Slams 3 times in a row but lose, when a few years ago everyone argued that Nadal was so great partially because of how clutch he was in important moments and Grand SLam finals???

this certainly is somewhat detrimental to Nadal, losing these big matches, his legacy. there are pros of course, a final is a great accomplishment at this level BUT you can't seriously say now that Federer is tarnished by losing in some finals/big moments and that it actually helps Nadal to do the same? it's absurd

I know it's your personal opinion but why would you hold it in higher regard than a CYGS when there was an offseason in the middle of that run?
