Default Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Or will 2013 be the first time since 2002 when neither have won a slam?

* Both will win at least one slam
* Only Fed will win
* Only Nadal will win
* Neither

(Mods please add a poll)

Default Re: Will Fedal win a slam in 2013?

Factors that come into play:

External factors:

* Emergence of Murray as a slam champ
* Revenge of Nole after a relatively subdued 2012
* DelPotro will be fit again
* Raonic (or some other youngster) will come into his own

Internal factors:

* Nadal too weak / lacks confidence after laying off in second half of 2012
* Federer, 32, will fall

But...

* Nadal is still a clay beast
* Consistenterer will be consistent in reaching slam SFs and Fs and will have a chance

Next year is probably the first year where there's a reasonable chance that they won't. That said its still far more likely that one of them will still pick one up. Between age, injuries, and much more inconsistency from both of them (relative to their prime seasons) though they don't have long

Agreed, Rafa has the best chance at RG. Whereas I'd expect Rog to be consistent at all slams reaching SFs / Fs in some of them

Nolandy strikes back. Fedal has no chance in 2013.

Delusional are the people that say Fedal wont win a slam in 2013. Are you serious? If Federer had a bit of a slump and still won a slam in 2012, and Kneedull the clay beast won RG in 2012, you can be sure that Fedal will not only win one slam, but they will win one slam each.

The better question is can Djokovic and Murray win a slam in 2013? Djokovic is still the overwhelming favorite in AO, but will Murray have any chance to fluke another slam whatsoever?

And you never, ever bet against Nadal in RG.

Nadal doesn't need a good runup to the clay season to dominate there. Even if he should be too rusty, that should mainly affect the clay masters tournaments. By RG, he should be match fit again. Barring unforeseen escalation of his injuries.

Federer will be 31 for three of four slams next year. He is old enough, in tennis terms, without people talking his age up further. As for his chances, I think the should be good. Next year he'll have an entirely free hand to play what he wants. It is not far-fetched to see him giving less priority no #1 now that he has got the record, focusing fully on the slams.

I would be very surprised to see both of them titleless in 2013.

Nadal will win RG if fit. Or half-fit.

Federer will lose to Murray at Wimbledon at whatever stage they meet.

Actually that's a good point, I had overlooked the fact that Federer can cherry pick the tournaments he wants to play in.

A bit of a disadvantage here for Nadal. Maybe the rule should not be based on age, but by the number of matches played on tour.
