    There's no stopping the spanish armada. No Rosol,no nothing. He will be simply unstoppable.

    I think Nadal will win 2-4 slams in 2013.

    Nadal was 11-2 vs top 10 players in 2012.

    In 2012....

    Nadal didn't drop a set at Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome.

    Nadal only dropped one set at Roland Garros.

    Nadal was EXTREMELY close to winning the Australian Open.

    Federer and Murray didn't play a great Wimbledon.

    Djokovic and Murray didn't play a great US Open.

    Would that number change if he had played all summer HC and indoor HC seasons?

    The more Nadal tards promise he'll win 2-4 slams the more likely he'll win ZERO.

    But on the second week of the first month, at early dawn, they came to the shore of Mallorca, bringing the fishing poles which they had prepared. And they found the boat that was set to depart, but when they entered, they did not find the Nadal.

    And it happened that while they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling tennis apparel; and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the active One among the retired?

    "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in the press room, saying that the Knee must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the six month rise again." And they remembered His words, and returned from the boat and reported all these things to the members of talk tennis.

    Now they were NSK and 6-1 6-3 6-0 and RAFA2005RG the mother of Bullzilla; also the other women with them were telling these things to the members. And these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them. But Sureshs arose and ran to the boat; stooping and looking in, he saw the knee wrappings only; and he went away to his bridge, marveling at that which had happened.

    He will swallow up the CYGS in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces.

    Anything is possible, but the smart money says:
    Rafa wins 4 slams = 1%
    Exactly 3 slams = 9%
    Exactly 2 slams = 25%
    Exactly 1 slam = 40%
    No slams = 25%

    Nice jinx attempt,Monfed. Good for you that Nadal needs no help going slamless for the rest of his career,so you don't have to waste time starting jinx threads in an attempt to use voodoo on him. Lol.

    Btw,do you have a voodoo doll of Nadal with pins sticking out of his knees? I wouldn't be shocked if you did. :lol:

    Nadal could (maybe) get two slams next season if he's playing well, and at a level similar to his old one. Otherwise, he's either only winning Roland Garros or none at all.

    Nadal only has a 40% chance of winning Roland Garros? More like 90%.

    Maybe a 40% chance of not dropping a set at Roland Garros.

    Rosol will need to play a lot better than he played in his 2012 Wimbledon meeting with Nadal. That only got him a 6-4 fifth set win (which was aided by a long break after the 4th set (the 4th set which Nadal dominated). Rosol needs to improve or he'll never beat Nadal again. Reminds me of Soderling at 2009 RG. Nadal beat Soderling in straight sets at 2010 RG (final) and 2011 RG.

    lol btw unless he had something of rafa like a hair or something that belongs to him, he cannot do voodoo.. :| so you missed one important step of doing voodoo not that i know much of it but you get it right. Voodoo always sounds scary

    on topic, i think rafa can win 3 slams if he is healthy his main competition is Nole and most of '12 in slams atleast, nole 1.5 showed up. so fair chance.

    Who's to say Monfed doesn't have something that belongs to Nadal? I think he would go to the ends of the earth if he could to ruin Nadal's career. He hates him with a passion,you know. :lol:

    Is it for trolling?
    Why stop at 3? Why not all 4 altogether? How about the next 4 GS in 2014 as well?:)
    No Rosol? Is he the one who will sink the Spanish Armada once again if he ever faces Rafa? I can smell some fear in your words there.

    That's not what he said. He said Rafa had a 40% chance of winning only 1 slam .

    Rafa could be 99.9% to win RG and still be 40% to win exactly one slam.

    Wow, aren't you a terrible person. I see him winning at least 12 slams in 2013.

    I would laugh if this thread ends up right, especialy given the fail poster who started it (as an obvious attempt of a jinx thread which only proves his haters are in fact still worried about Nadal).

    I think he'll win -1 to -2 slams

    I think this is the year they are on a witch hunt for doping (read: lance armstrong)

    and Nadal is going to lose a few titles... may have to retire too.

    I'm looking to '13 as being the year the shakes up the history of tennis forever.

    Also it will be interesting to see if they go ahead and award those slams to Federer or just leave it as "title unclaimed"

    Wow Let's watch his first matches back in competition before predicting slam titles please. This is very premature imo. OK, RG is not much of a high risk bet :) but I'd rather wait a bit to talk about the rest.

    Janowicz, not Rosol, will play the role of the matador vs The Bull. La rodilla del Toro will fall apart on Court Chartier fruitlessly chasing the exquisite dropshot artistry of the Polish Cannon. At a changeover in the third set, the vanquished Mallorcan will wave his swoosh bandana and do his best Roberto Duran imitation...no mas, por favor, no mas!

    You read it here first, six full months before this reality occurs!

    Nadal is more likely to win 0 majors than 3 in a year at this point.

    Wait till you see him in Australia before jumping to conclusions.

    Oh and besides - don't you know the pattern? Nadal usually follows a great year with a mediocre one (and the other way round). Or just simply he does better in even years. So then you got:
    -2007 mediocre
    -2008 great
    -2009 mediocre
    -2010 great
    -2011 mediocre
    -2012 - too bad he didn't use his great year to the maximum
    -2013 - mediocre

    By mediocre I mean win on clay and suck everywhere else.

    Rafa is pretty much a lock to win atleast the singles calendar slam in 2013, any objective poster can see that. The question is can he win 3 ( singles + mixed singles + triples).

    Yeah 2007 mediocre off clay winning Indian Wells and reaching the final of Wimbledon, 2009 mediocre off clay winning the Australian Open and Indian Wells, 2011 mediocre off clay reaching the finals of Indian Wells, Miami, Wimbledon and the US open.

    What, just 3? He'll win like 7 slams in 2013, with 90-0 record and surpass Roger as the holder of most slams in the process.
