    ...and Federer (2009) have won it.

    What do you think?

    *Channel Slam = French Open and Wimbledon back to back.

    I don't think so.. Rafa clay god, and now Andy much better than the rest on grass.

    Relax folks, ...
    Djokovic has already had a fairly long career and has only ever won 1 major on either grass or clay, so while it's possible, I find it to be very unlikely.

    Does anyone thing Djokovic can actually do it?

    Or is it too unrealistic for him?

    He could do it, he has the game if he's zoning to win both provided Nadal and Murray etc...aren't at their very best. It's unlikely though.

    Of course he can do it, he has no reached a SF + F in both of them 3 years in a row. He clearly has a good chance of doing it.
    Especially if he wins th FO this year, I give him a great chance of doing it.

    That said, it's also quite possible he will never do it. We'll see...

    Dunno..but he will win Channel Semi-slams (reaching semis) multiple times which is far more significant.

    I doubt it very much. He will be hard pressed each year to even win 1 of those as Nadal is still by far the one to beat at the French for the next 5 years atleast, and Murray is the one to beat at Wimbledon for now; and if Nadal gets his grass game back together, he is also way above Djokovic (and maybe above Murray) there.

    No, there will be no choking from Nadal while serving for the match in the 4th set at the FO next time. Murray will return with a bionic back and beat the living hell out of djokovic at wimbledon next year. djokovic can forget the channel slam.
