    Pretty desperate attempt to extract chunks of text out of context, but not too surprising, coming from you. The “15+10+10+10” was not posted in vacuum, but rather in the context of Nadal’s two slam titles at the time. Most people have enough background in maths to add 2 to a double-digit number!:lol:

    47-2+(10+10+10+15) = ??

    I didn't know my Chico had a sense of humour !

    After willing Wimby and USO this year, my Nadal will be close to the target of 47.

    I think once he recovers, we can revert to the 10-year prediction model: lock on FO, 75% hold on W, 50/50 USO/AO, so the expectation would be 10 + 7.5 + 5 + 5 = 27.5 more slams, assuming retirement 10 years down the road. Under this scenario, Nadal would need to retire later in order to meet the original expectations.

    This is a test, this is only a test. Do not be alarmed, this is only a test.
