Hypothetical thread but yeah, at the end of their careers, how many slams do you think the top 4 will end up with? I say:
Federer-18
Nadal-13(which will probably drive him insane, given how superstitious he is :D)
Djokovic-9
Murray-6

Murray won't win 6
Nadal only has 1 slam left in him, MAX

Federer and Djokovic are solid predictions.

Federer - 19 (Roger I believe has one more major in him but he never ceases to amaze the world so I'm going to give him 2 more b/c of that.)
Nadal - 12 (I agree with Zarfot..do you play RS2 by any chance?)
Djokovic - 10 (I believe he will win 5 more slams over the next 5 years. 1 next year, 2 the year after that, and 2 over the last 2 years. By then he will be 30 years of age and his aggressive baseliner style will have worn down his body to where he will have trouble recreating the magical defense that sustains him at the top today)
Murray - 7 (He has so far basically mirrored Ivan Lendl's career. I believe Murray is as hard of a worker as Lendl was and a little less talented. For this reason I will give him another 6 slams before his career is said and done. Lendl ended with 8, Murray will end with 7 IMO.)

Depends on the fitness of Nadal.

Nadal has the number of all the other players. Sure, Djokovic went on a hot streak and damaged Nadal's confidence, but he put that right within a year, nearly beat him at the Australian, then went on to whip him 3 times in a row.

If Nadal can stay healthy for the next 4 years, then I think he can win at least 6 more slams, which would put him at 17. And you can't count him out because of injury. His career has looked "over" several times, yet he bounced back to have some of the best seasons of his career. The fact that they don't feel his injury is serious enough to require surgery leads me to think it'll be another one of those injuries where he comes back playing better than ever.

Federer has 1 more in him, so I guess he finishes on 18.

Djokovic will probably finish on 8.

Murray will finish on 4-5.

Yes, but it has to be true at some point no? Personally I say he can get 2-3 more tops

So if the Big 4 end up sharing the slams for the next three years (likely), your logic may fail.

I see Djokovic ending up with 8 or so and Murray ending up with 3 or so.

This looks plausible.

The list suggests atleast 3 slams to others outside top 4 in the next 3 years. nah i think it may be difficult with the inconsistency observed outside top 4.

Federer -19
Nadal -17
Djokovic-11
Murray -6
