    Do you believe Nadal will ever win another hard court slam? My answer would be no. Here are the reasons:

    1. Federer, Djokovic, Murray, and now Del Potro are all superior to him on hard courts now and likely will be in the future.

    2. Nadal wont be winning any slams past around when is turning 26. His last time in contention for a slam will probably be the 2012 French Open at the latest so only 5 more chances max.

    It depends. On slow HC he has a good chance. On fast HC he has problems with hard hitters and can't defend like he does on slower surfaces.

    I made multiple choice an option by accident but basically if you are absolutely not sure you should vote for both, and if you feel even slightly towarsd yes or no vote for that one.

    I could see him having continued success in Oz, but it's unlikely he'll ever win the US.

    considering he made SF while injured(with bagels thrown in), whats to say he can't win a slam if fully fit?

    Why say no?
    He can improve his game even more, he is always learning.

    Federer has already won more French Opens than Nadal will ever win U.S Opens.

    He's already won 2. I can see no reason at all why he wouldn't win a 3rd one...
    Rafa wins at least 1 big title on hard every year.

    lol TheNatural, when you want to use pics to make statements, you're absolutely spot on with that.

    Encourage the Nadal haters to keep making awesome threads like this. I'm going to predict the next OP will be "How long until Nadal's knees explode?"

    Depends on Nadal managing his health. Fed is getting older and older quickly, Djokovic is nowhere close in terms of mental and physical prowess, especially the former. All the others break down far too much. I think Nadal could consider skipping everything after the US open in the coming years including this one to refresh for the AO. YEC isn't as important as it used to be, and far less important than slams. (i'd take 1 slam over 4 or 5 YEC.)

    I can't believe how many people said no he won't. Are you people crazy??!!!! He's got at least 5 years left, and so you're saying that in at least 10 more HC grand slams, he wont win one?! He's just won the USO!! Plus he's playing at his best! He's just got a new, better serve!

    3 top 10 players (one of whom is currently #2), looks like a pretty normal draw to me.
