    Once he's back. And, if you could, predict what they'll be.

    I think he's gonna win 3 or 4 more but I'm gonna be an optimist and say 4.

    3 French Open titles
    1 Wimbledon

    I am going to say either 0 or 8. Either he wont return at all or if he does he will be ready:

    4 French Opens
    2 Wimbledons
    1 Australian Open
    1 U.S Open

    That is what you said this year, strangely after Djokovic had lost 4 straight sets to Nadal on clay going into RG, and were mistaken.

    True,but unless time is standing still Nadal is not getting any younger,and is well past his prime. ******* is in his prime and is practically unstoppable. He will win RG next year,and can and will beat Nadal at RG.


    And you yourself said that you though ******* would win RG this year,and repeated it over and over again. Seems like you were mistake as well. Lol.

    Djokovic has won 1 Grand Slam this year. Let's not get carried away.

    So what that he only won 1 this year? He was also in 2 other slam finals,and is lock to win the AO for at least the next 3 years,if not more. He will also always be the favorite to win the USO,and also RG.

    He's been stopped many times this year and has only just managed to grab the top ranking from a 31 year old Federer (well he virtually has the top ranking in the bag) He's only won 5 titles, meaning he's been stopped about 8 times out of 13, including 6 times in a row from MC to the olympics.

    He could come out next year and dominate. Or 2011 could have been a bit of a one off.

    But yeah NadalAgassi thought he'd win RG as well (at least before the start of the clay season) now he's gone back to nadal as his pick for next year. I actually think Novak has a 40% chance of winning RG next year, nadal a 60% chance but it will change as 2013 unfolds.

    He's still practically unstoppable. He's the favorite to win each and every tournament he enters regardless of how many times he's lost this year.



    He will.



    No way are Nadal's chances that high. No way in h*ll.

    I think he will win at least 2 more slams. His health is the real issue here.

    Impossible to know now. Depends on what happens in Rome, MC, Barcelona and Madrid.

    Well,why isn't he? Who's going to beat him? I still think you're worried about Fed's slam count,and you should be.

    Who cares if he's favourite when he gets beaten? You're sort of saying he's unstoppable because he's favourite for everything, even if he actually got beaten in everything.

    I'm being generous to Djokovic here, Nadal has 7 RG titles, won the last 3 in a row, killed Djokovic in the clay season, and according to Nadal fans only lost a set cos it ws raining. You yourself siad it "got real" for Djokovic in clay season. So really his 2011 clay success over Nadal is a total one off.

    So let's recap - Djokovic favourite for everything even if he were to lose 20 matches in a row. Nadal not a chance in hell even when he constantly kills people on clay and there is no sign of this stopping. Incredible reasoning.

    Same people who beat him in 3 out of 4 slams this year?

    so? Nadal was in 3 finals in 2011 and made it 4 in a row this year in Australia. But losing in finals meant jack, right? In fact a while ago you were arguing with Veroniquem saying Djokovic had had a terrible 2012 because it was practically the same as Nadal's 2011. So can you make your mind up whether he had a terrible year this yearor whether it was relly good and shows promise for 2013?

    Tomic is more likely to surpass Federer than Djokovic is. I'm not even kidding. Djokovic left it too late.

    Djokovic won't get to 17 Slams :) Accept it, man. Breathe slowly and purposefully... don't get excited... and accept it.

    How many times Nadal has won RG is irrelevant. Fed won how many Wimby's straight before he lost to Nadal there? Nadal is on borrowed time at RG,and ******* will win it next year.


    I don't think it was,and I also think he can repeat the same success he had against Nadal on clay last year. Especially now that Nadal is practically retired.


    He does show promise for next year. His competition is also not as strong. He's more dominant than Nadal ever has been,and is mentally tougher as well.

    LOL, yeah. Cause not winning any of the last 3 Slams is more dominant than winning 3 consecutive Slams (2010).

    Overall ******* has been more dominant. He can go on another run easily,but do you see Nadal doing that? I sure don't.

    Nadal gave himself a big hope at Wimbledon 2007 though and after destroying Fed at RG 2008, it was a big sign Nadal was going to beat Federer at Wimbledon. What has Novak done? He's taken one measly set off Nadal in 4 meetings at RG. Where Nadal improved year by year vs Fed at Wimbledon, Djokovic has gone backwards from his success in 2011 to getting wiped out by Nadal in 2012. If he could have managed to push Nadal to 5 that would have been another story. But he won one set because it rained. That's not any basis for thinking Nadal will lose to him next year. The only reason I think he might is cos one day he will lose there again and Djokovic is capable of doing it, but the odds are still in Nadal's favour.

    And dunno how next year looks promising after Novak had such a terrible year in 2012, especially considering Murray had even the confidence of winning a slam til the US Open, meaning he will probably be tougher right from the AO next year.

    also do you mean he has been more dominant than nadal ever has, THIS YEAR?

    Djokovic is more likely to dominate in the future. But Nadal has had twice as much success as Djokovic in the past. Seriously, it sounds like you're a Djotard masquerading as a fan of Nadal's. You know what, I'm convinced.

    Barring a disastrous injury that takes away his capabilities fro good:

    4 FO+ at least
    1-2 HC
    1-2 Wimbledon

    6-9 slams... Nadal has many more years ahead of him.

    Lol no top player has ever won more titles after 25 than before/at 25, so his best results are already behind him. I say it will be a feat if he reaches the double digits. But the odds are against it.

    No way. I loathe ******* and always have. If you think I am a fan of him,even though I have made it very clear that I cannot stand the guy,then I don't know what to tell you.


    And I have been a Nadal fan since 2005.
