Default How many grand slams will Rafa win...

Has: 1 AO, 5 FOs, 2 Ws, 0 USOs.

Will end up with: 2 AOs, 8 FOs, 4 Ws, and 0 USOs.

Yes, that's 14 and he'll tie Sampras.

How many total do you think he'll win and how many of each GS?

I think 10 plus for definite though he has the potential for 15 approx which I'm hoping for

I believe Rafa is our favourite player so we can speculate about him especially here

No one thought he'd get more than 14 so he's met even the highest expectations. Hopefully he's got a few more still in him!

I guess he'll get 2-3 more. He just can't stay on the court consistent enough and have consecutive quality seasons. So, it's going to be difficult for him to get to 18. It's still possible. But he'll need to get at least a couple next year.

Default Re: How many grand slams will Rafa win...

Should be at 15 this year. Shame.

I think he has 1 AO, 3 RG, 0-1 WB, 1 USO left in him.

Wimbledon will depend on preparation and health. Taking extra time off to rest at end of this year hopefully should make him healthy for Wimbledon and extra week between RG and WB means he doesn't have to rush the transition and go to Halle the next day. Hopefully he will play Stuttgart since according to Toni the courts are very similar to Wimbledon. Hopefully the extra rest and time to transition surfaces will make for better R1-R4 performances from Rafa in 2015. Also can he get a draw not filled with servebots and ballbashers for once? Klizan, Rosol, Kukushkin, and Kyrgios? are you joking me? I blame Gasquet for Rafa losing at Wimbledon this year. Who knows what might've happened if Richard didn't choke his heart out.
