RG - no one if he's healthy. Not sure even Nole can do it here.

Wimbledon - a few could trouble in the first week, I suppose. If he makes it to the second week then maybe Djokovic or Murray but probably not

US Open - quite a few players.

No-one can beat him in half their matches except Djokovic. Other players can/will beat him, whether they are just in the zone or Rafa is slightly off, but it's not going to be in every tournament.

Nadal will win Roland Garros and Rome. Favourite for Monte Carlo. Second or third favourite at Wimbledon (behind Murray, one of Fed/Djokovic depending on your opinion). He's second or third favourite at USO (behind Djokovic and/or Murray). Don't expect much at the other masters, a semi here, quarter there. A win would be pretty ridiculous at say Cincinnati, Djokovic and Murray should be better on faster courts period by now.

Not counting Djoker? Only slams?

In this case it could be like this:

At AO: Murray if he's on his good HC level
At RG: no one if Nadal plays his typical clay tennis
At Wimbledon: Fed if he comes back to his last Wimbly's final shape, Murray if he deals with pressure
At USO: Murray if he's at least not bad, maybe even Delpo, Ferrer, Tsonga or Berdych if they have a good day

Nadal is a little vulnerable in the first few rounds of the slams and he keeps playing progressively better and is close to unbeatable later on. Djokovic of course has a very good chance to beat him on all surfaces.

Over 5 sets, it's very hard to see anyone else beating him in the French.

Outside clay, I still think an in-form Federer deserves respect and can beat anyone on his day (although those days are so few and very far apart now!). Murray definitely has the game to do it as well, but with him it's more of a mental thing.

In the early rounds of Wimbledon, before the new grass gets worn and slower, I guess big servers and power hitters could potentially pull of an extremely unlikely upset (like healthy Soderling, Kolschriber). In the other slams, potentially tricky matches might be Raonic/Tsonga/DelPo in the US open and Tsonga/DelPo in the AO. I still think a "healthy" Nadal will beat em, but then again you never know if Nadal's ever fully healthy.

Have to give you credit. You've built up such a strong reputation as a huge tard that this post could be serious

Funny how Nadal loses to lower ranked players when at his best, which he was vs Rosol, Zaballos, Dodig, and Mayer.

I don't consider Djokovic a credible champ. He will be relinquishing his transitional status soon. I don't know. That remains to be seen. But Rafa could win a few more slams.
