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

I think Murray will do it by end of 2014...:-)

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

Clarky21 10-09-2012 09:24 AM

Probably ****,unfortunately.

I definitely hope you're right.

Donal Young is only 8 away

-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.

Exactly he Has this in the bag!!!!

Evan77 10-09-2012 11:20 AM

yeah **** 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.

Tony48 10-09-2012 05:28 PM

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).
