No. he won't win Madrid and RG. Djokovic , Wawrinka and Berdych will rise.

More than likely he'll capture RG and two of the three Masters. All four titles may be a bit tricky: he'll no doubt have a letdown at some stage.

If Djokovic had shown more killer instinct in the majors over the last nine months I'd have a different response...

No, historically he did that only in 2010 all 3 clay Masters 1000 and RG, i think Novak will win 1 Master 1000 or RG.

He'll probably lose once, maybe more. Djokovic or maybe finally del Potro or Ferrer or Wawrinka if he's on fire.

Rafa is clearly declining. He had a fantastic 2013 and that should be his last such year.
He should try to win RG and the rest is a bonus.
Only thing is the above is based on AO2014 and Rafa is always injured there.
So a pinch of salt.

Who are we kidding? Isn't he "le guerrier de la terre battue" after all?

He'll win 4 MS1000s and 1 slam and a half (Barcelona is so obviously that half).

Default Re: Will Nadal dominate the clay: Win the 3 MSs + RG?

Besides Nole i dont see anyone beating a healthy Rafa. Stan has a chance, but lets see what he does in IW and MIA.

Then there is another part of this equation.

Rafa will play MC+BARÇA+MADRID+ROME and RG.To me he needs to pass on Barcelona and rest. Because he is the only player who plays all 5 tournaments. Or at least plays to win.

Nole wont play all and will probably tank Mad or Rome. But this is just speculation. Depending on how Rafa does in IW and MIA he can pass Barca and tank Madrid resting for RG.

60% RG, 40% no RG.

35% 3 Masters, 50% 2 Masters, 14% 1 Masters, 1% no Masters.

2 MS + RG is my prediction. He will win Monte-Carlo and Barcelona, lose in Madrid, and then win Rome and Roland Garros.
