Nole will not win a career grand slam, but he will end his career with 5 slams. 2AO+1RG+2USO.

Sadly,no. Hes not that good on grass,losing to the likes of Safin,Haas,Malisse & Berdych in recent years,hence winning Wimbly will be a big problem,especially with the presence of Rafa,who will probably dominate the surface for the next 5 years or so. Could see him definitely winning USO and possibly FO,though he needs to have a good draw there and hope someone knocks Rafa out early,ala 2009.

Talk about talking down expectations... He was supposed to win the Golden Slam in 08 and now we are talking only about winning a career gs?

Well Wimbledon is gonna be tough because Novak doesn't like grass and RG because of Nadal obviously(who is about Novak's age).I'd be happy if he wins USO and maybe another AO down the road,I think he really is due for an USO title in the next few years,he always plays great there only to be stopped by Fed usually(this year it was Nadal.

Maybe we should wait for that seriously postponed Second Slam, and after that happens we discuss Career Slam possibilities?

His recent performances in slams don't bode especially well, do they? Losing to Nadull at the U.S. Open, Berdych at Wimbledon, whoever it was at the French, Cilic or Tsonga was it at the A.O.? He is good on all surfaces, but he still hasn't recaptured the level of 2008 & contrary to what people are saying, he doesn't actually have that much time. Top-level tennis careers are short, peak is 24 or 25, decline begins at 26, & only the greatest are still competing seriously for slams past 28. He has, or had, the game to do it, but he really should have won one of those U.S. Open finals.

Maybe. But your logic says that he will peak in 2011-12-13 so he has plenty of time to capture a few slams.

His game is vastly overrated to the extent were it's ridiculous. His game can win him a slam, maybe even two, but four? No.
Wimbledon will be near impossible for him to win, considering he isn't even in the top five grass players presently.
Murray is unequivocally the better grass court player. Their matches will not be as close as some people foolishly claim. Murray will win most, if not all of their matches on grass. Wimbledon matches will not be much different. Murray will win most of them.

With the competition he has, there is a big question mark over whether he will go on to win multiple slams, let alone the career grand slam. He has the talent and the skills, but a CGS is not easy to come by and a lot of things will have to fall in place for him in order for it to happen. To be honest though, I think it's only right to talk about the possibility of him achieving it if he wins another slam - otherwise these discussions are premature.
With the competition has, there is without a doubt, almost a zero percent chance that Djokovic will win a slam.
His "talent" and "skills" are the same as most other players, except just slightly better. There is nothing exceptional about him. He doesn't have an outstanding game at all.
He'll be lucky to win a second slam, let alone the career grand slam.

His game is far from outstanding. In fact, if you watched his game without knowing he had won a slam, you'd think he was just another top 10 player, which nowadays, he is.

His results are very poor for a top three player.
Only other top player who has had a poorer season who should've had a better one is Murray, but he has two masters titles, while Djokovic has zero.
His number three ranking has been kept because of very poor opponents, easy draw and chokers.
If two certain opponents didn't choke so incredibly, two of Djokovic's grand slam results would've been first round losses, and he would've ended the year ranked number five, where he should be.

You keep saying that until you believe it, repetition does that for you.

By the way, the real problem with you is that you're so afraid of Nole overshadowing Murray's career, that you feel the need to diminish his accomplishments and talent as a player all the time bringing up the lamest arguments you possibly can in case someone will pay attention to your rants. It won't happen.

So true.

I expect there will be little between Murray and Djokovic in their achievements.

Expect both to have greater career portfolios than Del Potro.

I guess so. He's probably going to have to beat Nadal in a few of them though, & the U.S. Open should have been the easiest place to do it. Federer will not be a consistent threat in 2013. I'm not sure Nadal will either. But by then there will be new threats. Put it this way, I expect him to win 1 or 2 more slams, but the career grand slam looks unlikely at this point - though I guess he's got a better chance than Murray, not being as weak on grass as Murray is on clay.

Oh really?
Proof?

I'm not afraid or worried in the slightest

And I don't think Djokovic is as talented as people claim he is. All I hear on here is that Djokovic will win more slams, that he'll be number one before Murray etc. How will he?
He's not better than Murray and hasn't won any masters series tournaments in quite a while.

Also, his game isn't outstanding at all.
He's just a better version of a lot of players who have similiar games to him.
A lot of players have the same kind of game as him, he's just better.

No, it really isn't.
Djokovic reminds me much of Ivan Lendl; a very mechanical and robotic player who seems to be produced rather than natural, but is exceptionally effective. Djokovic seemed to go downhill when he tried to be likeable, but I sense he no longer cares and is now exhibiting the personality and charisma of a Lendl; the ruthless assassin. Can he deliver the results?

He will beat most of the players he should beat. He will struggle against more talented players like Federer, Nadal and Murray, but could achieve more than Murray. Lendl achieved more than McEnroe, but McEnroe was obviously the more talented and capable.
