Default How many slams do you think Djokovic will win overall?

By the end of his career, how many majors do you think he'll win and will he complete the Grand Slam?

I hope he wins at RG before the end of his career and I think he'll get the chance to, maybe beating Rafa if he gets back to early 2011 godmode.

I don't see another Wimbledon title but I could see another 3-4 AOs and another couple at Flushing Meadows.

Is 10-12 an unrealistic target?

He will complete RG and the master's set.
I see at least 6 more out of the next 16 possible slams.

Sooner or later, Djokovic will win Roland Garros and complete the CGS.

Now... I see him staying in a good level for some years, I see 10 slams as a possible thing.

Maybe even more, next year there would be probably the same thread and maybe my opinion would change.

Default Re: How many slams do you think Djokovic will win overall?

djokovic isn't winning 10 slams, too late for that

he will end up with 7, at least though

4 AO (possible 3 consecutive)
1 Wim
2 US

the 8th one will either be a lone RG, or a 3rd US

so basically, GOAT at Australian Open, and rightly so

7, unless he repeats his 2011 form in which case I can see him getting the CYGS.

Too bloody late? And who will stop him in this week era, maybe some young player(s)?

Djokovic is never comfortable at Wimbledon, he's solid at US, and average at the French. The Australian Open is his favourite turf, no doubt about it

He'll equal Agassi and Federer there with 4 titles, for sure. The question is whether he becomes the GOAT there by doing 3 consecutive (which has never been done)

He nearly lost to bloody Tsonga at the French this year. Tsonga on clay!!!

Not even going to mention Wimbledon. Serve isn't good enough, volleys are crap, overhead is non-existent

He's got the Wimbledon he needed, much like Federer with the French, and Nadal with the Australian.

As for the Us Open, he's one of the favourites, but it's the most open slam, easily

You really think that he's playing until 30, with that style?

Default Re: How many slams do you think Djokovic will win overall?

4* sounds like a good number.

*3xAO=1 Slam
1*USO=0.5 slam
He needs another USO and another 3 AOs to reach 4.

If some unknown talent came out of some random tiny country (no chance to win DC) and won 20 slams, no one would give a single shit if that player didn't have DC. The fact is, success in DC is largely determined by what country you come from or play for in the first place, which most players haven't had any control over.

I think Wimbledon will be the most open slam in the coming years.

lets see...

federer will always be a threat there

murray, if he improves his first serve % and comes to the net more, will do well

nadal, wimbledon is more likely for him than the australian or french, but still, unlikely

djokovic, no. he's got the wimbledon, he isn't winning another

as for tsonga, he does have the return of serve to win at wimbledon

berdych does not have the second serve or the mentality

del potro does not have the movement, and its more likely he'll win at RG than wimbledon, if they are up for grabs

raonic is potentially a threat at wimbledon. he'll need to improve those volleys and return of serve though

tomic, highly unlikely. he's a natural grass court player, but his serve is poor, and his motivation is lacking
