    The New King will take a minimum of ten. . . But don't be surprised it he outdoes the former king. After all there's no limit on his talent.

    re: all this pedantry about "slams", in england we say slam for what you americans are calling majors, that's the way it is.

    Nope. I don't think he posses enough talent or the fitness to play for 10 years at the top level (which he'll need).

    Also, only the truly great players use a 1HBH and obviously Djokovic doesn't fit into that catergory.

    Given the fact tha she said that after AO I would say she was wrong as Federer beat Novak in Monte Carlo_Or maybe that win doesn't count?

    Most Americans call them Slams too. Most TV commentators call them Slams. It's still incorrect. Calling a major a Slam diminishes Graf's and Laver's accomplishments. I've said my piece.

    Before Wimbledon this year, I had my doubts if Djokovic could win another slam event, however, the way he played on grass, the way he beat Tsonga and finally crushing Nadal in the final, changed my position on this. I have no doubts, he can win atleast 2-3 slams for the next 5 years or so.

    We could possibly be looking at someone who ends up winning the most slams in history, only time will tell.

    I think 6. Two on hard court, one on soft court.

    He has a chance to break Federer's record no? And a CYGS in 2012?

    I don't know if you are being serious or not,but I do think he has a chance at both of those things,especially the career slam. He is just now coming into his prime when there is no competition around to stop him from going on a tear. He is going to rack up slams because of it,and will at least finish his career with a slam count in the double digits.

    I give him 9 - optimistically. Fed. Murray, Nadal, and others will get in his way enough to keep him in check. I still think Fed has one more in him - maybe two. Nadal has three to four more at minimum.

    Still think he has a very slim, but possible chance for an Agassi-like career imo. Reaching 16 is took much of a task for him at his age. Unless he all of a sudden goes on to win the new few calender slams, I'd peg him to be a 5-8 grand slam winner.

    He's one year younger than Nadal and he has 3 right now. If he were 20 yrs old I'd say double digit. But there's so many variables, will he still play like this next year? Is this run a one year thing and then he comes back to earth? I have to think he will come down a notch somewhere before the AO. I say he can go with 6 to 8 slams. But with him, it's hard to say. He could get complacent once he reaches 5. He's 24 yrs old and he is a very physical player. So when he's 27 he could drop off. So many factors come into play, it's not gonna be so easy for him as people think.

    Epic bump!

    Vast majority of posters (65%) have predicted that Djokovic will not win more than 5 slams. LOL

    Prior to the oxygen chamber, I went with 3 max.
    NOW with the oxygen chamber, he'll get double digits. Took a page right out of Nadal's book. Why train so hard when you can just use an oxygen chamber to regenerate your muscles, increase your endurance and boost your red blood cells?
    It works for Ferrer very well. 31 year old still running like a gazelle.:)

    Since this is all speculation with no facts in sight, I doubt you'd be interested in my opinion.

    I have a fact for you though: Pronunciation is not your strong suit.

    One more than whatever figure Nadal ends up with. So I voted 10 plus majors.

    How is that funny....at that time it was very reasonable!

    Now those same people might vote a little higher. We all expect Djokovic 2011 form to decrease....and it did. We also though Federer, Nadal, Murray would take some of the chances for Djokovic to gain slams.

    Which they did but not to the extent we all might have thought.

    I voted up to 5....which is more than what people who have given for Djokovic in 2008.

    Right now I think he may end up with 7-10 slams.....if he has resistance from others. If his rivals can not lift their level....then 15+.

    5555 is a computer generated bot, there is no way a real person would behave like this..

    I am hoping he will get into double figures. He looks good at the moment to reach that target, especially if he picks up another slam this year. How close he gets to Nadal and even Federer though is another question, because I don't think they are done winning slams yet either.

    Before 2011, I thought Djokovic would win somewhere between four and six slams. Now that he's at six, I think he'll get up to eight or nine. He could easily hit double digits, but he could also easily not. I don't see him consistently having season in which he wins multiple slams. Even here in 2013, I think he's already won the one slam he'll win until next Australian Open.

    If this is about slam events/majors, I;d say somewhere between 10 and 15 (closer to 15). But if this is about Grand Slams, i'd say one, tops.
