Default Re: Who will win more slams, Nadal or Djokovic?

If Rafa keeps winning RG then my guess it will depend on if he can win Wimbledon. You don't get to 2 Wimbledon finals if you can't play on grass. Nadal could become the new Borg.

If his body holds together Rafa could win RG maybe 7 or 8 times. If Fed starts to lose it on grass Rafa could win a few Wimbledon's.

Nole could start to dominate the hard court slams but there are more people who can have a great day on hard court than those who can on clay or grass.

And of course there are always the players who are just around the corner that no-one knows of as yet. As for the poll I went for Nadal at +3

Јoker is all surface player and he will be dangerous on grass.
Hard courts are his and maybe Wimbledon .
Rafa is not in same class on HC v Joker or Fed .
So i think Joker will take more GS than rafa.

Default Re: Who will win more slams, Nadal or Djokovic?

I expect Rafa will end up with about 6-7 slams. Probably 5 or 6 RG's and 1 or 2 elsewhere, one being Wimbly. I would say Djoko could manage the same. While he's the premier player on hard courts now, I don't think he'll ever manage Federer like domination. People seem to totally underestimate how hard it is to win even 3 or 4 Grand Slams. Look at Safin, post 2000 US Open he looked to be heading the same direction as Djokovic is now. Even if Djoko has an Agassi like career, that's still "only" 7 or 8 slams, essentially I'm saying I think they will end their careers with roughly equal numbers of Slams.

Yet another crystal ball pool. We could talk about their game, to compare, whatever...no, we are pooling who will win more GS, MS, TS, MR, UW, AX....I don't know what else.

Default Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

We all know Rafa has 10 and novak 4 and that novak is a year younger BUT novak look good on every surface so do you think he has a chance of stoping nadal at 10 and win another 7 Slams?

i know it's a longgggg road to that but what are his chances?

Default Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

I don't think so, I think Nole ends his career with 8 grand slams - same number as Lendl and Agassi

If he can find a way to stop grinding out points from the baseline, then he may reach double digits in grand slams, but the way I currently see it, his game is too physical (if he keeps this up, he'll only be playing another 2 years or so at the top before his ranking drops when his body starts taking a toll with injuries creeping in).

I'm a big fan of Nole, one thing I'd like to see him improve is his net game so he can shorten the points and his body steers clear from injury. Whether or not that will happen remains to be seen...

Don't see it.

If Novak could take 3 or 4 this year though then it'll get interesting.

Default Re: Do you think Novak Djokovic can pass Nadal in Slams?

Anything's possible but unlikely. For one I think reports of Rafa's demise are much exaggerated. He still has a few French Opens & Wimbledons in him - the next 2 years is still a good window for him & he'll have his chances. If Rafa gets to 12/13/14 in the next 2 years, Novak's task gets even harder. Novak will be 25 this year - potentially 2-3 good years left at a very high level given how much he grinds out points - will he win 2-3 slams a year every year? Again could happen but unlikely. Murray will challenge, hopefully Del Po will & Raonic, Tomic etc. may rise. His best shot at racking them up is this year....
