lol the anti jinx. You'd probably not hesitate in agreeing that Fed will win 5 more slams.

1 more RG for Rafa ? Please be realistic. 3 more RGs at least. 2 more Wimbledon at least. 1 more AO at least.

this is often taken for granted, people criticize Nadal as a hack often who relies purely on his athletical prowless, yet he plays a style (and I mean as far as his groundstrokes, point construction, etc) that no other players can do in today's game or in the past. he is unique and full of talent
Yes , my "talents" weren't mean sarcastically, I was giving duong credit for his good post because I also agree that the word talent is often under used. I agree he hits groundstrokes in a unique way, but this also wouldn't be possible without his fanatsic athletical talent. You have to have a lot of power in the upper body to execute certain shots like he does and I meant that this physical strength is his main talent, because he never really did that much to become this powerful.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

True but it is easy to determine Nadal isn't the one.

An extremely dumb articles on Bleacher Report is not anything new. I'm sure most tabloids have tougher submission standards than them.

Bleacher Report should be called "Blecch Report." It is normally full of hate. Peter "Bozo" Bodo is the absolute worst. He is a Nadal hater and also referred to Juan Carlos Ferrero's 2010 surgery in the crassest possible terms, calling it a "two for one job." That's disgusting!

ridiculous? really? I do not think 5 more is even that unrealistic. everyone is predicting based on an entirely unknown entity; Nadal's form after return from injury. If he came back and won AO right out of the gates I think 6 would be far from 'ridiculous'

he's got good odds at Roland Garros for at least 3 more seasons and it would not be surprising if he won an odd grand slam here or there besides that

people let the present get into their brains too much. of course he could come back to win no more grand slams BUT it is absurd to assume his career is practically over when we haven't seen him play in months and the last time he was playing he was just weeks off of winning a grand slam

give it time

Funny how on MTF, speaking honestly means some sort of jinxing agenda

Him winning 6 more slams is probably as likely as the Rosol match being the last match he ever plays

I see nothing wrong with the article. FYI Everko works for Bleacher Report.

Nadull winning another hard court slam. He barely won RG this year (rain saved him).
