Zero, Sugarpova will break his heart and he'll turn back into Dimimug

Murray only has 2 slams and he had won 4-5 masters 1000 and been in 2 slam finals at the same age as Dimitrov, people need to calm down on the Dimitrov future legend talk, guy lost in the first round of the French only a month ago, Janowicz made the SF at Wimbledon last year where is he now?

One good tournament doesn't always mean the giant breakthrough is imminent.

2, I think. Would be surprised if he didn't win any, but at the same time there's no way he wins anywhere near 10. Even now at 23 years old he still isn't able to consistently beat the top guys, who will continue to dominate for a few more years. By that time there might be better younger players to contend with as well.

He'll start to win slams the day he'll be able to be himself freely. That is to say the day he finally says he's in love with Tursunov.

LOL he's already 23 and has 0 slams, there's a very small number of people who win their first slam after 23 and win multiple slams nevermind 8-10
False MTF's logic. :shrug:

Djokovic was born in 1987 and he had only 1 until 2011 (24 yo). Now he has 7. :shrug:

And Dimitrov won't have the big 3 (at least not in top form) to deal from his presumably prime years (2016-2020). Just injury prone guys like Delpo/Nishikori, maybe Thiem and those Raonics/Kyrgios of the world. :shrug:

In the Open Era these are the only people who won their first Grand Slam after their 23rd Birthday and went on to win more than 1 Grand Slam (not counting Laver, Newcombe and Rosewell who had won Slams before the Open Era started)

Here's the age they won their first slam and how many they've won it's a pretty short list.

Johan Kriek - 23 years 273 days - Won 2 slams
Jan Kodes - 24 years 61 days - Won 3 slams
Ivan Lendl - 24 years 91 days - Won 8 slams
Stan Smith - 24 years 230 days - Won 2 slams
Pat Rafter - 24 years 254 days - Won 2 Slams
Guillermo Vilas - 24 years 292 days - Won 4 Slams
Arthur Ashe - 25 years 57 days - Won 2 Slams
Andy Murray - 25 years 118 days - Won 2 Slams
Ilie Nastase - 26 years 53 days - Won 2 Slams

So Lendl dit it. Dimitrov can do it too. He only lost 2 matches for the 90's players and both matches in 2011, when he wasn't even a TOP 50 player.

Murray could do it also, but he is the 4th best player of his era. :shrug:

4 or 5 is a realistic number IMO. Would not be all that surprised to see him finish with more or less than that number though.

None. This guy is good, but nowhere near good enough to win multiple grand slams. He's unlucky, because he's going to be caught right in between the 86-88 generation, and the 95-97 generation, which both have at least three slam contenders in them. Generally, by the time they are 23, players have at least got near to winning a slam, but Dimitrov hasn't even made a final yet. Where is the evidence that he is going to start winning them any time soon? And bear in mind that he hasn't got that much time to start doing it, because it won't be long before this next generation comes of age.
