Three this year will not be enough. It will leave him on eight. Then he'll need three more, yet three more and yet three more to reach 17. Making it twice when you've done it once is one thing, I'm not saying that is really unlikely, making it five times is something else entirely.

Well your last sentence is sensible, but think about what I said earlier, in the next 3-5 years, the only player with a slim chance to beat Djokovic at the Slams is Murray, so the possibility is quite enticing actually, at least we agree to disagree now

You talk about an open mind and claim only one player can beat Djokovic the next 3-5 years? Yeah, right...

I can't imagine what you will do when it doesn't, I don't know you well enough for that.

I never said it will happen for sure, all I said was never say never and what don't you understand about that?

Read back. You just said when the impossible will happen, not if.

Read again, I said when the impossible happens, not will happen, anyway I rest my case, no point discussing with someone like you. I will leave your posts alone so do me a favour and leave mine alone too, I rather spend my time discussing with people who actually knows what they are talking about not someone who considers everything is impossible based on irrelevant historical facts without actually taking into consideration of the fact that nothing is impossible in the future because simply no one can predict that

You have no case to rest. If you are not interested trying to make one, I don't blame you. It was always an uphill struggle to say the least. For someone who is apparently unable to see the difference between "impossible" and "very unlikely" is must be extra challenging.

After the AO 2007, Federer had the same age than Djokovic today.

It was his absolute peak and he looked invincible, Djokovic and Murray were top 20, not more and Nadal looked in a big slump. Despite the fact that he had "only" 10 slams, everybody thought that he would beat the 14 mark. After this tournament Pete gave his first interview about Roger, his record... He predicted 18 slams for him.

Exactly. Six years ago they were already predicting Federer would break Sampras' slam record.
