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.

Djoker 01-27-2013 07:07 AM

"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.

90's Clay 01-27-2013 07:14 AM

IF he can win all 4 this year that could put him in position to attempt to challenge the slam record

slowfox 01-27-2013 07:32 AM

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.

Tropikal_Knights 01-27-2013 07:53 AM

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

Netspirit 01-27-2013 11:10 AM

LOL at the poll results

Frying Pan Forehand 01-27-2013 11:12 AM

for those who didnt get it: yea he will WILL 40 slams for sure.

NadalAgassi 01-27-2013 11:15 AM

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.

Monsieur_DeLarge 01-27-2013 11:42 AM

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.

You're basically asking a baby to stop peeing on himself.
