I think rafa will win around 90 atp titles, what do you people think ?

My prediction is 90-92 atp titles (incluing 5-6 more slams) 10-12 m1000 more,1-2 wtf (yes he will finally win it, imo) and maybe the olympics gold singles again in 2016. Other mickey mouse tourneys will be added like barcelona, tokyo/beijing, south american clay swing, and maybe even halle.

Hmmmm good thread... I think he will win 100 titles, 20 grandslams and 30-10 h2h over Federer. Rafa likes round numbers.

Lold hard at Nasal winning 90 titles.

He's won 64 titles in 11years on tour, what makes you think he'll win 26 within the next 3-4 years as he declines?

'Dull tard logic not even once.

You are just negative or a hidden djoker fan, I have noticed it since long time ago. Rafa has more titles than fed at the same age, and he will likely end up with more than him. Rafa is winning at least 3-5 titles more this year, plus 7-8 titles in each one of the coming 2 years. Would be amazing if rafa does end this season with 70 atp titles. Then he will probably win about 3-4 titles per year for a couple of seasons and retire.

i am just realistic. Winning 26 more titles will take 5 years and he will be 33 by then (he may retire at 2016 which he mentioned before). I like Nole just fine but Rafa is forever my no. 1.

Rafa's physical woes aren't worse than other 28 year olds on the tour imo. Only thing that stops him from playing 5-6 more years is motivation. I think we'll see the current shape of him for another two years. In those two years, probably 10-12 titles. Then another two years where he's at least top5 and winning titles(5-6). Beyond that depending on how motivated, maybe one or two titles per year. So, say he's got another 18-20 titles in him, 4-5 likely slams. 80-85 in total perhaps.

He isnt declining at all, 10 titles in 2013 and 4 in 2014 ( with half of the season left).

Also rafa winning span is 10 years, he barely won anything in 2004. Yes good decline, rafa has played 12 gs finals and won 8 slams in 2010-2014 (still 2 slams to be played in this year) in comparison to 2005-2009 where he reached 8 slam finals and won 6 slams. Rafa easily could achieve 30-40% of what he has done.

Good realistic estimation. I believe rafa can win 7-8 titles per year in 2015/2016. After that stage he probably slows down and wins no more than 3-4 titles for 2 more years. Who knows until when he will play? I believe it's highly unlikely he will call it a career before 2018, unless he gets heavily injuried.

Too few, I think rafa has achieved anywhere between 65-70% in terms of potential titles he can win. I think rafa will play for about 4 years more after this season.
I think he might be concentrating more on slams from now on.I don't think he'll put his body on the line for Masters and other smaller titles anymore.My guess would be 75-80 at max.

Hey, hey, hey, do not mess with Mimi, she is one of the nicest long time Rafa fans on this site!

I believe that Rafa will win around 80 titles if he stays healthy another 2-3 years. It obviously depends on his schedule, I don't see a problem Rafa winning 2-3 titles every year during the South American clay court swing if he decides to play there.

What's the difference how many titles he wins? He is the best ever, even if he retires tomorrow. It's not the number of titles but the quality of play at a player's peak that determines the best in my opinion.
