Can Djokovic win slams for 8 consecutive years?
 
Like Federer, Sampras, Borg and Nadal did?

Djokovic would have to win slams until 2018, age 31, without any slamless years until then.

I have a feeling he won't do it. There will be a slamless year before age 31.

Federer and Sampras had a slamless year at 30.

8 is boring. 9 and 10 is the in thing, and that is what Nadal is about to do.

Hodgey20 02-17-2013 04:42 PM

Only time will tell. He does have a chance though because of how he is far superior to the younger generation, and it does not look like they are going to get to his level in their careers.

90's Clay 02-17-2013 04:48 PM

Why not.. He won't be stopped at every slam for the next 4-5 years thats certain. Hes gonna win at least 1 a year for quite a few years

You sure seem confident, Vladimir I mean *** I mean RAFA2005RG. LOL

Just kidding brah. I'd say Nadal has a tall order for this year. If he wins even just RG I will be impressed.

No male player in the open era won slams for 9 consecutive years. Graf did it for 10 consecutive years and Evert did it for 13(!) consecutive years.

Evert is seriously underrated.

RAFA2005RG 02-17-2013 05:05 PM

Nadal is far greater than Evert and Graf. Neither of those 2 ever dominated a slam as much as Nadal did. 7 Roland Garros titles in 8 years, and several more to come. Nadal is a lock at Roland Garros. You heard it here first.

you phrased it poorly. can he? sure he can. will he? that's a whole different question..

Clarky21 02-17-2013 05:11 PM

I think he will. Who's gonna stop him?

You can! You just need to start supporting him. Show ******* some of that special brand of Clarky love. :)

I don't think he wants the kind of love I would give him. :twisted:

I don't even wanna think about it, but my hunch is it would be like the starting scene of an CSI episode, with the second scene obviously being a helicopter aerial view of Las Vegas followed by the CSI team observing Djoker's hideously mutilated body in a dark alley, ending by Grissom's typical quip (in this case it would be something like "I guess he won't be getting a Career Grand Slam after all".)

RAFA2005RG 02-17-2013 06:23 PM

The only way Nadal loses Roland Garros is if his parents split up again. They split up in the clay season of 2009. They reformed by 2010. As long as they stay together, Roland Garros is a lock. Nadal doesn't even need to be healthy to win, as he proved in 2012 when he took an injection to numb his knee just to play the final, and won over a player who was supposed to have the biggest mental edge in history (although Nadal swept Djackoff 3-0 in the clay season).

No, she didn't. She just dominated EVERY slam. She "merely" won every slam four times or better. She did 7 Wimbys in 9 years, though.

Thank you, sir. I aim to please. And, I think I have watched too many CSI episodes lately (starting on Season 1). The start of every episode follows a very close formula, but it still works.

Those adductors are not going to hold up for another 5 years.
When the movement goes he will be blasted off the court.

RAFA2005RG 02-17-2013 06:38 PM

Nadal will still be winning Roland Garros in 2016. You can't stop him. The one guy ever to beat him was Soderling 2009. And Nadal beat Soderling in straight sets in 2010 Roland Garros and again in straight sets in 2011 Roland Garros.
