hmmmm

probably something like

Federer 17 >>>> 18/19

Nadal 11 >>>> 14/15 (really I mean at the very least he's got a few more Roland Garros's in him probably, but could possibly challenge at all slams if comes back as strong as ever)

Djokovic 6 >>>> 10 once again, although obviously Novak is the best player as far as form and consistancy these days, his style does seem to be grinding him down. just as an example, he looked to get more tired at this Australia Open frequently than I have seen in the past. and people lose sight of how hard is it to win ONE slam, let alone multiple more. too many unknown variables. three or four more is realist, but those guessing something like seven more are being very short sighted

Murray 1 >>>> 4 How can you not see Murray winning a few more? he's one of the fittest players on tour, has made the last 3 grand slam finals, etc. even if Djokovic were to become his bogey man (which I doubt, I expect them to continue to share wins when they face each other), if Novak gets knocked out early in some grand slams tournaments it would make Andy's chances pretty good.

Del Potro 1 >>>> 2 hopefully this becomes more optimistic (if Juan can gets his fitness improved and to a degree his confidence). I definitely think at the very least he'll get hot one tournament at some point and win some. however for all we know, when he's like 27 he'll have a prime and beat everyone everywhere. given that Del Potro has had numerous good deal of times off for injury, and the fact that he isn't the guy who is out there running insanely killing his body, it's certainly possible that he could have a late 'prime'. a weakening tour wouldn't hurt either... I mean he's only, what, 24 years old after all

Tomic --- he will win some

If RF wins another slam, it'll be a bit of a modern miracle but it'll have to happen this year. A USO final win over Djoko who would be on his way to a CYGS would be just sweet .

People going on about how Fed/Nadal/Djokovic are only going to win 1-2 more each - who else do you see winning the majors???
Surely someone's going to breakthrough soon enough?

Default Re: how many slams do the following playing have in them?

Fed- 1 more*
Nadal - 3 more
Djokovic - 7 more
Murray - 3 or 4 more

*If Nadal doesn't come back strong, I could see Fed winning more than 1 more. I can imagine Novak having a bad RG or something like that and Fed would have a real chance of winning it. Fed could possibly get 2 or 3 more IF Nadal isn't back as a top contender.

So Novak style is grinding him down, and he'll win more 4 slams, post injury Nadal whose style doesn't grind him down at all(lol) and is 1 year older will win the same 4 slams. Seems legit.

you do realize that clay courts do not grind down the knees very much at all? Nadal PLAYS HIS BEST ON CLAY AT ROLAND GARROS. he could literally have knee surgery and probably still compete at the French Open. UNFORTUNATELY for Novak Djokovic, he plays his best ON HARD COURT. at the Australian Open. if Novak's knees decline (which you seriously don't think he'll face any problem after, like, 4 slams, which was my prediction he'll win?) it will be very VERY tough for him to win on a hard court that is rough on the knees.
Nadal in a way is fortunate he won SO much early, his favorite tournament is the easiest on the body of any tourn in the world.

you are not thinking straight if you think Djokovic is likely to win 4 + more hard court slams or whatever. the reality is that if Nadal is still healthy it would not be strange or surprising if he won 3 more Roland Garros's and a WImbledon or something similar.

once again, both players are likely to decrease quality of knees and physical well being dramatically in the next few years (NADAL has run so much in his career, BUT LOOK AT Djokovic's SLIDING on hard courts), but it all has to do with their best tournament's surface. certainly Nadal even with worse knees can win at Roland Garros a few years from now because the surface is relatively gentle. the Australian Open and US Open on the other hand... (Novak's best tournamnets)

I mean for gods sake did you miss all the talk about how rough the Australian Open was on players knees this year? miss what happened to Bryan Baker? the reality is that Novak will not be able to maintain the knees for THAT many year. the next 2, 3 years maybe. if you think he will win THAT many more than 10 or so then you are being delusional and have lost a grasp on the difficulty it takes to win at this level

and if you fail to recognize that Nadal will be the mass favorite to win Roland Garros probably until he is 30, and a big favorite at Wimbledon too, then you are kidding yourself.

once again it all revolves around SURFACE type. at 27/28 it begins to be much harder to keep the body healthy and win on hard courts. Federer is not the norm despite what the tennis community seems to want everyone to think with their constant tirading of 'tennis is becoming an older players game'

P.S. however it obviously should be noted that these are predictions assuming the players stay relatively healthy. tennis is unpredictable, any of them could in ONE random tournament have a career ending injury. and it's certainly not just Nadal, despite him getting a lot of attention for obvious reasons with his big break from the game. I cannot bring up enough Novak's sliding on hard courts. that is extremely tough on the legs

Default Re: how many slams do the following playing have in them?

You do realise that Novak is also a contender for RG and Wimbledon? 2 nd favourite for RG (probably 1st this year) and 3rd for Wimbledon?

You do realise that Novak has less 100 matches in him?

You do realise that he's world number 1 and 1 year younger than Nadal?

You do realise that Nadal's knee problems are way worse than Novak's?

You do realise that Nadal's movement at 30 years old won't be enough to win RG?

I don't think that Novak will win much more than 4 slams, but saying that he and Nadal will win the same amount until they retire doesn't seem very wise.

I don't think that Novak will win much more than 4 slams, but saying that he and Nadal will win the same amount until they retire doesn't seem very wise.
just an FYI if you were familiar at all with Nadal's recent knee problems, it was not the old legendary one that has made him be out, it was something to do with the tension against the fat pad on the knee that caused him severe pain. his knees may or may not be in shape to last for a number of years

you do realize that Nadal is not even 27 yet? he in all liklihood will be able to compete very seriously at RG for at least 3+ years and you seriously do not think he will be massive favorite even with hurt knees? the odds on Nadal winning RG this season EVEN if he didn't play AT ALL up until the tournament would still have him as #1 favorite. that is just the nature of being so dominant and such a specialist on a surface.

once again, this is a prediction thread, I have tried to explain some of my opinions to you but it is not up to me to make a prediction that you agree with. hence why everyone makes THEIR OWN predictions.

I have already explained to you, however, that Nadal excels on CLAY which is easy on the knees. Djokovic on hard courts which are VERY tough on the knees. just judging by Nadal's already adjusted schedule this season, it is obviously he is trying to adjust to accomodate his career lasting longer. if you truly do not think it's possible that Novak and Nadal will both burn out, then you are not having an open mind. you certainly will not see Rafael sliding that much on hard court...

also Novak is not in the top tier on grass and may or may not be on clay. the reality is he is proven to be the best of the best on hard courts, which happen to kill the body and knees, and that it would be dumb to assume that he is never going to have injury problems. good luck with that. I predict they win the same amount more grand slams mainly just because of how great Nadal is on clay. and maybe do me a favor, look at scorelines of the last # of Roland Garros's that Rafael has won-- notice something? he wins by big margins the majority of his matches. even if he decreases in movement he still will be the favorite. that's why I can see him winning 3 more
