Djokovic beats Nadal
Federer beats Djokovic
Nadal beats Federer

And Federer couldn't even beat Novak, Rafa would've ripped him to shreds in straights, maybe in 4. If I remember correctly, weren't some Federer fans relieved Djokovic won, so that Nadal 'wouldn't routine Fed again'?

Don't think we should count the indoor results, it plays so different to outdoor hardcourts. Especially since we're talking about slams here, and the fact that Federer owns Nadal indoors, says absolutely zero about what's going to happen when they meet at the AO or USO.

Nadal decides what happens at Roland Garros, Novak better hope he can make it to a final there at least once in his career.

Federer and Nadal have never played at the US Open, so it seems a bit presumptuous to say that because Nadal's beating him in slow outdoor hard courts like Miami and IW, he'd do it at the Open. I have history on my side (5 time open champ) at the very least for my reasoning of thinking that Fed would win that match up in New York.

This year will definately be the biggest hurdle to Nadal nabbing this record

Yeah, I think he'll win RG or maybe Wimbledon this year unless he gets injured again.

If he can't even beat Berdych anymore at basically any slam these days, what makes you think he has a chance against Nadal?

Face it. Those days are long gone.

I think Djokovic will win RG and either Murray or Federer will win Wimbledon. Either Djokovic or Murray will win the USO.

I certainly hope not. If he does win RG, then Roger has to win Wimbledon to make up for it.

Yes.

He is my pick to win RG this year. However, if he does not win RG, I cannot see Nadal winning a GS outside of RG in 2013.

Gonzales won a a slam 12 years running, 1948-1959, 14 if you count the Pro Tour in 1960 and his 1961 exploits.

But Open Era, Sampras, Nadal, and Fed have 8 years in a row. Laver won 1 slam 9 of 10 years. Rosewall won 1 slam 10 years of 11.
