So max two more for Nadal...

He is never reaching 17.

For those predicting Nadal will reach Federer. Not happening. He will win 2 more slams tops. Not enough for 17 slams.

Of course Nadal might be done since Sampras was done at 14 slams. He also won 3 slams after turning 27.

Sampras and Federer only won 2 slams after turning 28.... Nadal already won a slam after turning 28. He will most likely win just one more slam. That would be two slams after 28 as well.

Sampras and Federer ONLY won 2 slams after turning 28. Nadal already won one slam after turning 28. I think he has one more RG win. That's it.

Forget about the likes of Agassi, his career is not the norm. He slacked most of his 20s and that's why he had great longevity.

But players like Nadal that have been grinding for a decade won't have a career like Agassi.

Lendl also won 2 slams after turning 28.

I think Nadal will also win 2 slams after turning 28 and he already won one of those.

Connors won 3 slams after turning 28 BUT that was a long time ago.

Roy Emerson you have consistently made bad false predictions

I wouldn't bet against Rafael Nadal

you mention Agassi was not the norm- well in entirely different ways Nadal is not the norm either

for what he lacks in career reserves (Agassi not caring for so long), he makes up for in unusually good spirit and attitude

You do realize that he was a finalist in 3 of the last 4 slams, 2 of which he won.....
