What do you think, can Nole win French Open and achieve CYGS this year?

I think he's the favourite for RG, despite RG's SF loss, he had an impressive clay court season last year. Rafa will be another favourite at RG, but for Rafa, Nole is the same as Rafa for Roger, he just can't beat him. So I think Nole CAN win at RG, and he has a good chance. But CYGS is another thing. For sure, he can do it. But it's unlikely. That's why I voted no to it.

The winner of this match was always going to be a hot, hot favourite to finally achieve this...

I think Novak has a decent chance, not as big as Nadal's would've been had he won here...

It's too soon to tell if Nole can achieve the CYGS. But he has a good chance at completing the Nole Slam.

I think he can win at RG but winning the calendar slam seems very unlikely. There is a reason it doesn't happen anymore. That said he has a better chance at than either Fed or Nadal have ever had in my opinion since you never thought Fed could take out Nadal and RG or that Nadal could get both hardcourt slams in the same year.

CYGS? No. I think he'll falter at Wimbledon.
Win RG? Yes. I've long since thought that if he were to win anywhere, it would be RG. I hope I'm right.

But the way he's playing now, would anyone be surprised? :lol: It could happen.

First option. He can and probably will win RG. He may win the golden slam but probably not. Winning Wimbledon again may be tough.

You missed the point... the AO is Rafa's worst slam, if he won that, you'd have to favour him for RG/Wimbledon... and he's been doing great at the USO recently, he would've grabbed it I swear.

And Novak, how can you bet against him in slams? He's so great right now...

My point was, for both, if they won this match, they looked a shoo-in to win the rest as well

To be fair, Nole cocked it up last year... he could've won the CYGS twice in a row had he beaten Fed in the semi's :eek:

Ok then, I'm probably not too sharp right now after today :p

And I'm just about drunk... god, those beers taste good after Nadal lost today...

Damn how did he miss that backhand :sad:

If he wins RG, there's a high chance he won't defend Wimbledon.

The feat's not deemed hard without a reason.
