I don't want to give my prediction but what I know is that if he wants it, he will win it.

Medium - but not low - likelihood that Djoker as Top Seed will take both FO and SW19, it is indeed possible and what a US Open scenario if it happens:
...
US Open 2021 will be the most exciting nerve-racking thriller Slam in Open Era with the 20-20-20 scenario.

MTF tennis fans will travel to New York City in the tens of thousands to watch Big 3 tennis history being written live.
With the National Guard encircling the AA Stadium making sure that all 25 000 spectators were escorted into the 14 day quarantine thereafter, because the final was suppose to be held with an empty stands.

Lol, he's wanted it every year since 2005, and he's only won it once and even that was in a year when Rafa withdrew early. Obviously he has a chance, but it's crazy to think that the outcome of the tournament is purely on his racquet.

And all this time, I thought Nadal had something to do with Djokovic losing every single RG final they play against each other. Yet it turns out it was about Djokovic just not wanting to win. Who would have thought?

The likelihood is Nadal wins the French Open, Djokovic wins Wimbledon, then MTF (barring Djokodal fans) get excited that a next gen might win US Open until...Dkokovic or Nadal wins US Open. Rinse and repeat in 2022 (with a random winner if/when Djokodal have significant injuries at one the the four majors).

Draw won't help Djokovic, Likely that Nadal & Thiem will be the 3rd & 4th seed, meaning he'd have to get through both back to back to win it. I don't think he'd have the stamina for that...

All pressure is off Djokovic now (kind of) - this was a must win, to stop the string of losses, to seal the record weeks and re-establish himself as #1 etc, if he enters RG healthy and playing for the fun of it, better watch out. :)
That's not how champions, especially all-time greats, go about their business. Djokovic would never play for the fun of it, especially at a GS - that's why he achieved what he has achieved.

Imagine if this prediction also comes true. The ruins, ruins everywhere... Nadal probably done winning slams, Djokovic will win 30 slams nonsense.
If Thiem takes out Nadal somehow, and Djokovic will beat Tsitsipas on the other side, it can be realized. The only version I see it happening.
Imagine if this prediction is another fail and Nadal is on 21 and Faker forever stuck at 18 , the ruins the ruins everywhere...

You do realize that he won the latest slam just a couple of days ago and was in the finals the slam before? I will say one thing, he's not staying at 18.

It’s pretty much a certainty that this won’t happen. Most probably Nadal and Djokovic will both end up having more than 20 Slams each.

OT: This is an extremely bold prediction as long Dull is arround, his best chance should've been last year as he had perfect conditions and he didn't even play bad as the score suggests but Dull is simply the GOAT claycourter and tuned up for the final again. Only hope is Dull having an extreme off day or gets surprised before he reaches the final by someone but that's also not that likely.

In my opinion the chances of Djokovic winning AO, RG and WMB this year are pretty slim, but if Djokovic enters USO with the other 3 GSs in his bag, I will put all my money into him getting the elusive CYGS.

Federer hasn't won the USO since 2008 and a loss from Nadal at RG may be the final blow to his self-confidence. And we all saw that the Next-Gen is not yet ready to beat the Big 3 on the big stage.

Only a random peaking Stanimal can prevent the Djoker from being the second person to accomplish that feat. But Nadal will win his 14th RG this year.
I clearly wouldn't dare to do that. The pressure will be enormous. Serena Willams absolutely couldn't handle it when she had the chance, losing to a nobody.

I know Djoker is way mentally tougher than Serena, but in this scenario he has everything to loose: the only shot ever at CYGS and Fed/Nadal will be totally fired up like never before to prevent this happening.

This scenario would be the real true test of Djoker's mental clutchness and toughness and I just don't think he will pass it. If so, he will be the undisputed GOAT.

Injurovič will have exactly the same chances as Injurer to take this year FO. Which are not quite zero but not far away.

Remember he had won four in a row previously, just not in the same year and he was pretty close in 2011 when 40-15er stopped him in the SF of RG where he was serving the best I've ever seen him serve against Djoker. If anyone is capable of doing it in the Open Era it's Djokovic. And mentally tougher than Serena is an understatement... he leads the field in that department hands down.

Nadal is the obvious favourite again but his choke against Tsitsipas will have placed a dent in his “invincibility” aura. Here is a question for you, if Rafa fails to win FO, does he ever win another GS? This is the dilemma he will also be dealing with and the pressure is on for him more than it ever has been in Paris.

A less fatigued & more vengeful Thiem than entering FO last year will still have best shot as we saw the 2 previous years before FO20 whether he has to go thru a Tsitsi, Zverev or Novak (no need to include Medved) & any round he faces Schwartzman, should destroy him this time.

If Novak wins another slam (any slam) this year, it will be a win in my book.
In your first four months, you came out as a brutally agressive new diehard Nolefan from Serbia, hammering and humiliating all MTF fans who dared to disagree with your wonderful wisdom sent from the tennis heavens.

And now this meeeeeeh?
