How many slams will each of them win in their careers?
I hope Rafa catches up to federer or passes him
Fed - 16
Rafa - 11
Djoko - 2
Murray - 3
I see fed and nadal both getting more. Sampras continued to win a few slams past his prime, I hope federer can too. He has a lot of talent, but now needs a little luck to help him win another slam.
Nadal will also win some more, I think he'll reach 10+ too. I see him reaching a grand total of 11 or 12 grand slams within the next 3 years or so. I don't know what will happen happen after that, like federer, once he loses his movement, his game will go south.
As far as murray and Djoker, I think they'll pick up a few trophies here and there but we'll see. I personally hope djokavic never wins another slam, but I doubt that will be the case. I really enjoy watching murray play, I think he could pick up 5 maximum, I don't think he'll get that many though, 1 or 2 slams is a likely bet, with 3 being unlikely.
Fed - 17
Nadal - 10
Djokovic - 3
Murray - 2
ROFL. I pulled all those number out of my ass. Nobody knows for sure.
Nadal - 11 or 12
Djokovic - 5
Murray - 5
Just a wild guess
That sounds about right. Im not sure about Murray, Depending on how he progresses on grass and clay he could win more. Of course, he is still searching for his 1st one.
Nadal, 12 (7 FO, 2 W, 2 AO, 1 USO)
Federer, 16 (7 W, 6 USO, 3 AO)
Djokovic, 3 (1 AO, 1 USO, 1 W)
Murray, 1 (1 AO)
I think that Djokovic will never realize his full potential but will pick up a USO and Wimby (when Federer's game starts to drop, but before the new generation peaks), and that you guys are overrating Murray and he will overachieve (a la Roddick) and win either the Australian Open once or the US Open once.
Sticking to it!
Assuming that each player retires at the age of 30:
fed 14 maybe 15
Fed: 14 possibly 15
Nadal: 12 or 13 (w/career slam)
Federer - 17
Nadal - 12
Djokovic - 6
Murray - 5
If those were to turn out correct then the 4 of them would have to win 20 slams between them from here.
Federer - 13
Nadal - 16-17 (if he is still alive at the age of 27)
Murrey - 10-12 (if his bad knee doesn't prevent him from playing complete seasons)
Djokovic - 5-6 (maybe more if he continues improving, this year it looks as if he stopped)
Interesting. Perhaps you could elaborate on why you think Federer will fail to win a slam he's already won.
Federer - 1
Nadal - 20, 22 if he really cares at that point
Djokovic - 1
Murray - 18 Hey, he still has no Slams under his belt, but what the hell.
Federer - 16
Nadal - 12
Djokovic - 8
Murray - 5
Yep. Got to love guesstimations.
Please admit it...you are on drugs right??
either that or your brain is actually the size of a ducky
I agree with you on this one...
Rafa - 11-13 (just shy of Sampras)
Roger - 15-17 (just ahead of Sampras)
Nole - 4-10 (a lot depends on his attitude)
Murray - 4-10 (see Nole's comment)
Tsonga 15 muahahahahahah!
:roll: :roll: :roll:
The number of posters of Nadal you have up in your room DO NOT equal the number of slams he will win.
13 for Federer? Please. This is one of the best players in history with several good years left in him, who is pretty much 100% just focusing on the majors/big tournaments from now on.
I find it laughable that people expect Nadal to win more slams than Federer. The kid's knees are giving out already, and he's not even 23. He's a great player, and will pick up a few more French and maybe another Aussie, but he's only going to be around for a few more seasons tops. He'll retire by 26 or 27.
In order of quantity
Oh, man, that would be the coolest. Imagine all the arguments around this place about who's better! And we as tennis fans would be in such suspense waiting for the person who finally will break Sampras's record.
I'm gonna do the minimum # of slams at retirement because it's easier:
For maximum, anything can happen!
Djokovic:1-2, 3 MAX
Murray:6-7, mostly on hard courts.
federer - 17-18 ( 2-3 more W before he's done, couple more USO maybe 1 more AO)
Nadal - 12-14 his turn to dominate and will do what fed did for 3 years and pick up 3 slams a year probably for 2 years and fall steadily after that
Djokovic - 4-6 I believe he's going to break Nadals FO streak
Murray - 2-3 overrated and over hyped in my opinion
Separate names with a comma.
