    Monfed with his usual Nadal jinxing crap. Fed does have a chance at Wimby. You're just being ridiculous.

    Hard to say, probably like 2012 plus or minus.

    he does come out with some crap true. But when reading it, think of how your "nadal won't make it past the quarters of any clay event and has no chance of winning Barca" stuff this year sounded just as ridiculous.

    Yes it did. You sounded as ridiculous as monfed.

    :lol:

    Nadal is a mug and Fed isn't so I don't think it's ridiculous to say he won't win anything. Fed does have 17 slams and counting you know. :)


    Plus Monfed only does it in a pitiful attempt at jinxing Nadal, who needs no help from him in being pathetic. He doesn't really believe any of the stuff he posts.

    You also know Nadal isn't a mug and is one of the most talented players ever.

    Oh I can see clarky is resorting to reverse jinxing now.

    So a mug can win 11 slams and over 20 Masters?

    Ask Nadal. Lol. Seriously, he wasn't always a mug, but he has definitely become one over the past few years.

    Off clay Federer has beaten Djokovic two of the three times they've played this year. Including clay it's 3-2 to Djokovic.. Federer had a pretty lacklustre clay season this year - possibly a half-arsed effort to put more into Wimbledon and the short turnaround for the Olympics.

    In the past two season at majors Djokovic is ahead 3-2. In 2012 it was 1- all.

    Against Murray, Federer does even better with a 3-2 lead in 2012.

    It's not really what you could call rarely imo.

    Cheezz, are we still talking about the same Fed who just made the WTF final barely a month ago? And who gave a good beating of Murray who was supposed to have his breakthrough year by a score of 6-2 in the 2nd set? How can you and other people see such a DRASTIC decline both physically and mentally from Fed in 2013 compared to 2012? Even on FO, probably his worst surface, he made SF in 2012, and lost to Djoker, very likely due to his previous long QF against DelPo. His new schedule was also lighter, so it's not like he's killing himself playing every single Master out there. IMO, Djoker represents the biggest thread to Fed. Murray, DelPo,Tsonga, and Berdieman (in that order) are in the second group who can give Fed some run for his money ONLY under the condition that they're ON and Fed is OFF on that given day. I have to wait to see Rafa before making any judgement. Either he's between Djoker and the 2nd group I mentioned, or below the 2nd group, based on how fast he gets back in his match-ready shape.
    To me, Fed will SF in every GS. Getting through and winning the final, that's another matter. All depends on how exhausting his SF win, his serve, the identity of his opponent, etc.

    You never cease to amaze me with your predictions!!!:confused:
    Such a devotion! Such a blind faith in Rafa! RG for the next 5 years!??? Let's see how Rafa behaves on court this AO before making any serious judgement. Me, I give him perhaps 1, at most 2 more FO IF (this is a big IF) his body doesn't break down before that, and Djoker STOPS IMPROVING ON CLAY. Next 5 FO? Can't stop shaking my head...

    At this point, i still think he has a pretty good chance to win both the USO and Wimbledon. Slightly less at the French, and AO

    I think the real X factor for 2013 will be Nadal. I mean seriously, I wouldn't be shocked if he came back and won 2 slams or something, but on the flipside, If the health problems linger, he also might not be the same player as before.

    Federer will still make deep runs in the slams, perhaps winning them (something could happen again in 2014?) but his overall consistency is starting to fade, just at a slow rate. It will come to a point where he loses in the QF stage of majors. At all of them. Might not be next year, but it's coming. Still, that's an impressive feat as nobody else, to my knowledge would have achieved that or been a lock for the QF round (at least) for years.

    and both are more skilled than Rafael "It's impossible for me to lose without an excuse" Nadal.

    Btw, 17 > 11, Federer weeks at #1 > Rafa's weeks at #2.
