Well, first of all it´s 9 slams, not 7 (4+2+2+1), so that´s a little over two years. That is quite a bit of time, especially if you consider there could be 1 or 2 surprise runs in this period. So, let´s say the summer of 2015 is when the top 4 has won these tournaments. Could the young guns beat them after that moment? I feel that that will be more probable than we can imagine right now. All of the top 4 will have rounded the dreaded cape of 600 matches then (they already have done so, save for Murray) after which players are said to deteriorate physically and it will show in their movement. 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.

If Nadal has three more majors, how would you distribute them?

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?

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.

I'd go for either 3 FOs or 2 FOs and a Wimbledon. Don't see him winning on hardcourt anymore.

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.

Nadal is due for two more 3-slam years like 2010.

Nadal will be active through 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. More than ample time to rack up six to eight slams.

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

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

I will agree with this, exactly my thoughts.

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
