Re: How many GS titles will Rafa win
Assuming his knee doesn't force him to retire or just cause him to play like shit, he can be expected to be the favorite at Roland Garros and a contender at every other slam for 3 more years until he's thirty. Then he will start to dwindle, but could still win the French a few more times. So, a conservative estimate would give him 2-3 more French Opens and then maybe 2-3 more of the others. So I'd say 17-19 slams is a reasonable guess. Maybe more.

"It’s not just the athletic artistry that compels interest in tennis at the professional level. It’s also what this level requires -- what it’s taken for the one-hundredth-ranked player in the world to get there, what it takes to stay, what it would take to rise even higher against other men who’ve paid the same price number one hundred has paid." -- David Foster Wallace
