Default Do you think Nadal will get the record for most consecutive years winning 1+ slam

He only has to nab 1 slam next year to equal Federers 8 years in a row 03-10.

Do you think he can get the all time record?

Even if hes in decline and doesnt win too many more slams I think this is one record he could really target.

He'll be the favourite at RG unless someone dethrones him, so yes, I think he can make it. It won't be as easy as some may think though.

I predict he will at least win the next 6 French Opens. That means he'll easily break the record.

Federer's also tied with Borg/Sampras.

Which suggests Nadal will find a way to not break this.

I don't think he'll ever win a Slam again so my answer is no

But winning a Slam 7 years in a row is a great achievement

Entirely doable. He just needs to stay healthy.

If he's healthy for the French Open, then yes.

He's too good not to win a slam in both of the next two years.

He's the best clay player.
Arguably the best grass player.
Second best hardcourter.

He'll pick up at least 2/8

Yes.

I don't see anyone besides Djokovic actually beating a decent Nadal at Roland Garros. Even if he does lose at Roland Garros I don't see him not winning another slam that year.

He didn't even play Federer in a hardcourtslam. and Federer was a lot closer to beating Djokovic than Nadal was to beating djokovic. I rate Federers chances higher in a hardcourt slam than Nadals.

If I make up some numbers which I feel are about fair I would give nadal about 55-65 percent to win RG, now Djokovic has a clear edge against him. he could very well win AO or WIM but isn't the biggest of favorites there (more like 2-4th). I would give him in total 80% to win one this year and 70% to win one next year, making it about 55% he beats the record.

Would be a really impressive achievement if he gets the record!

AO 2009?

It is absolutely doable but it is not that important of a record.
