Will he more than ********?
he can easily win 40 , nadal is almost broke ,fed never know , murraa pathetic 7 years with 5 slams each can easily take him till 41 and he will be only 30
20 slams minimum
Not nearly enough.
When Federer was Djokovic's age (25 years 8 months), he had 10. Just two months later, he won his 11th, and two months after that he won his 12th. And Federer's game is far less physical than Novak's.
Barring a miracle, it's not happening. I don't think 12 is outside the realm of possibility, though.
"will Djokovic will....." wtf?
Whatever the thread question is,
17 slams and probably counting,- those are Godzilla-like numbers. I love Nole but sometimes you've got to acknowledge that some hurdles are just insurmountable.
IF he can win all 4 this year that could put him in position to attempt to challenge the slam record
Will posters please learn grammar and spelling? Maybe I'll start a poll...
He has a chance of surpassing Nadal, but I highly doubt his body will hold up long enough to win any more slams after that.
Look....surpassing Fed means your body has to hold up....
Lance, Rafa and the Scotsmans games are just too physical......
Unless they develop the ability to actually kill the ball before the 40th stroke of a rally they will surpass fed....
If Lance wants to do it got to tailor his regime perfectly....With testing to get more stringent soon dont see it happening. Without the juice or (gluten free) as he calls it I dont see his body holding up.......
Rafa well all he has to do is give up playing just come back each year and play the French open for the next 8 years and he will surpass fed............
Muzza mentally an infant
Mentally though in all seriousness the Djoker is the most toughest. The guy is Big Time. Clutch points , phases of matches he raises his games and goes for bigger shots.......
Mentally he is a giant.....Added with the juice the guy is unbeatable on a hard court
LOL at the poll results
for those who didnt get it: yea he will WILL 40 slams for sure.
Only about a 5% chance to win that many slams. He would need to either average 1.5 slams per year for the next 8 years, or average 2.5 slams per year for the next 4 years, then win another couple more after that at 29/30 and beyond. Not impossible, but extremely unlikely. I know this is a troll thread anyway though.
Players who've won three slams or more in one season during the Open Era:
Laver (all 4 in 1969)
Connors (3 in 1974)
Wilander (3 in 1988)
Federer (3 in 2004, 2006, 2007)
Nadal (3 in 2010)
Djokovic (3 in 2011)
A list of greats, to be sure. And there's many more ~ Agassi, Sampras, Lendl, Borg ~ who are absent, having never achieved that particular success. But the important thing to note is that Federer is the only one to have managed the feat more than once. There's too many people on this board who think that the last ten years is the be-all and end-all of tennis. It's not. Federer is, statistically, a tennis anomaly, hence how he has so many more major titles to his name than any of his rivals. Djokovic himself fulfilled a pattern I highlighted at the end of 2011: that players who win three slams in a year tend to win no more than one the following year.
There are things in Djokovic's favour compared to his predecessors: 32 seeds in a draw intead of 16, more homogenized surfaces, etc etc. But people talking about "if he wins all four this year..." or "if he wins three per year for the next five years..." are getting a wee bit carried away based on the flimsiest of evidence.
He's already 25, he's only [sic] got six slams to his name so far, and he has a very physical, strenuous style of play. And for all the hyperbole, can I point out that apart from his glory year in 2011 ~ which as I've pointed out he's statistically unlikely to repeat ~ he's never won a single slam anywhere outside Melbourne. So I think the Nole-haters should relax a little bit. He's getting nowhere near Roger's tally. Matching Nadal's going to be a push even if the Spaniard doesn't add to his slam count this year.
Well duh. He's gonna do AT LEAST 5 calendar slams.
You're basically asking a baby to stop peeing on himself.
Not everybody is murrican.
I cant agree more with the poll. If Federer is human and he wins 17 slams then Djokovic as an alien can do much more!
you can not predict the future or change the future
41, I guess.
LOL @ the typo.
Yes, he will will 18 slams or more to himself, just by thinking about the achievement. There's no need to actually play the tournaments if the Djoker can will himself into becoming the champion.
How's this even a question? He's easily going to get 40
He is on pace to match Wilander.
Somewhere around 10 most likely.
there's a lot of Djokotards lol
LOL, people don't even know how tough is to win a GS tournament.
Even in a homogeneous conditions era like the current one (where it is easier for the top top players, in my opinion, to inflate their nº of GS titles, finals, SF, QF,...), to win 10+ GS is very very difficult.
In about 34 years (from 1968 to about 2001, both included) of polarized conditions eras, only two players did it (Borg with 11 and Sampras with 14 ).
In about a decade of homogenous conditions era, another two players have done it (Federer with 17 and Nadal with 11 ).
Djokovic will probably get there, with 11 or 12 GS, but I think he is not winning 18 GS at all.
The only chance for him to achieve something like 15+ GS is Nadal not getting back to top-level and Murray stopping improving so that he could be head and shoulders the best player for the following 3 or 4 years (something similar to Federer 2004-2007 seasons).
Separate names with a comma.
