    (And Federer's worst slam early in his career was Wimbledon too, he lost in the first round, 3 times.

    One thing is for sure, if Djokovic doesn't win 2-4 slams in 2012, it's bye bye to Federer's record, because Nadal will be on his way to 16. In fact the main thing for Djokovic is that he establishes dominance at Roland Garros, because Nadal can just keep racking those up otherwise)

    Neither Nadal nor Djoko will win 16 slams.

    (Djokovic won't even win 10, no argument there.

    Nadal will have reached 16 in about 3 years)

    Nadal will win like 11 slams.

    Djoko will win like 8 slams.

    Nadal won't win that many,and Cvac will win more than that. The number you give Cvac is much too conservative.

    Nadal wasn't in the 4th set of Wimbledon. :lol:
    He got broken, broke back, then got broken again and was put away 6-3. Djokovic gave away the third set rather than trying to fight for it.

    Djokovic may catch Nadal before Nadal can catch Federer. Remember who won 3 Slams this year. And don't count out Federer. If Federer and Nadal are drawn in the same section, things could get interesting. Federer/Nadal AO semifinals would be a fun one.

    Exactly, this years Wimbledon final was a relatively routine drumming. Cvac won the first set 64. The next two sets they split 61 set and Cvac won the 4th comfortably 63. Thus 64 63 Cvac with the other two 61 sets canceling each other out.

    The OP may be correct, we see Novak having some serious problems now. It is just so much on the body, however if we listen to the fools here they will tell you how easy the top pros have it, and how non-taxing professional tennis is on the body.

    Of course you do. It's probably the most significant accomplishment in your life. I'll start using it too if it means that much to you...........

    I still prefer Cockyvic. More appropriate IMO. Cvac is funny though :)

    It is a lot to recover from, really if Nadal and Novak were not around he would not have a problem winning more. If Novak was not around Nadal would have no problem winning more. Novak does not really care one way or another as he can beat them all.
