    Federer beating Nadal on clay isn't as unlikely as you think. However, it is still bloody damn unlikely. :lol:

    However, if somebody takes him out before (Djokovic, Del Potro).......:D

    No, Andy M will share the fate of the other Andy (R), as a one-slam loser.

    A one-slam loser? Shouldn't that be Berdych and Tsonga and Baghdatis who all made one Slam final and lost it?? :confused:

    Hard to see Fed won another RG, same for Nadal in USO and AO. Djokovic will probably win another USO, Wimbledon maybe but 2 RG......i don't see that happen

    -Federer won't win another RG.
    -Nadal may win another AO, unlikely though. I don't see him wining another USO.
    -Djokovic will definitely win another USO. He will win RG at least one time. But I don't know if he will win another Wimby or a second RG. Maybe one of the two, but not both.

    Honestly I don't see any of them achieving it. Although Djokovic is the one with more chances I think, despite the other two techically being closer.

    When did Djokovic win a first French Open? He still needs to win two French Opens.

    yeah Cvac will probably win another USO, possibly FO too as he is very good on clay. I could be wrong but it's more likely to win 2 RG than another W although with Fed getting older ... who knows?

    I said he will win it at least one time, but I don't know if two. If Nadal doesn't come back strong he sure will.

    Career GS on three surfacess is extremely hard (no pun there) to do once, let alone twice....Agassi, Fed, Nadal only (Connors if you count Har-Tru and believe he could have won '74 RG if allowed to play). Fed has inside track for lap 2 but it will have to be '13 or '14...at 33 he's not gonna go 3 of 5 seven times on the dirt. Djok needs 4 trophies, Murray 7 and Nadal may be done. Until he plays another major, I'm not sold on trying to speculate on any swag he will earn.

    If Nadal is injured or isn't match tought at 2013 FO....I can see Federer pulling it off.

    A freak upset like Soderling or Rosol can occur for Nadal.

    Federer is equal to Djokovic on clay.....both are the second bst cc after Nadal in this era. Federer is he most likely.


    Nadal.....needs a great two weeks to pull of anything on HC. He needs to do it twice....which is too much to ask in a field of strong HC players.

    Nole.....is the least likely....no way is he going to win another Wimbledon. 2 French....too hard to do in a Nadal era. Maybe 1 for sure.

    US Open....easy.

    From most likely to least likely

    1. Federer. It's unlikely that Nadal will be rendered vulnerable on clay next year considering his leave of absence but it certainly won't help things. Additionally, he's already shown that he can beat Djokovic at RG and he could very well do it again. And another thing: he only has 1 slam to go. 50% chance

    Too many variables exist for me to quantify the chances of Nadal and Djokovic. The both have to win more than 1 (4 for Djokovic and 2 for Nadal) and to do so, they would have to win on their least favorite surfaces where their weaknesses are clearly exposed. So who knows what will happen between now and then; too many things to consider.

    Federer has the clear advantage (if any).

    With Federer gone he can win Wimbledon again. He beat players like Nadal and Tsonga pretty easily when he won there.

    The RG part is hard. I'm sure he will win it once, but 2...it will depend on Nadal and his injuries in the next few years. If Nadal is done (don't think that at all) he will be the favorite there.

    Wimbledon I still think it would be tough.

    Murray has been good on the grass for years. Winning the Olympics must take pressure off coming into Wimbledon next year and the years to come. Murray is the better grass courter than Djokovic....and should win in most cases.

    Nadal....last year...Djokovic was impeccable. I think it will be different next time around on grass.

    Tsonga....Djokovic will win each and every time. Could tire Djokovic a bit by taking a set.

    Del Potro....the guy is improving on grass.....gave Nadal fits at 2011 Wimbledon and troubled Federer at the Olympics. If he improves and get confortable...you never know.

    Raonic and Tomic....guys who are up and comers. Can play well on grass....they may upset. Tomic....will take longer( bec he is a brat that doesn't work hard) even though the most suited to the grass than Raonic.

    Federer.....is never too old to win.

    Djokovic can beat all the guys above.....and out of the top 4...he is the weakest on grass. Things have to go his way in the draw or he plays like 2011 again for it to happen.

    I know Djokovic will prove me wrong....but to me it always felt weird to see him win Wimbledon. It can only feel equally weird if Murray wins French Open.... that can happen if Nadal is upset or doesn't play.
