Djokovic with 14 majors looks crazy but at least he's very much in his prime and the favorite for every major (except the FO maybe) for the next 2-3 years. Unlike Nadal.
Yeah, I think his predictions for Nadal are insanely high. Nadal just took an eight-month-long injury break from tennis and he'll be turning 27 by the time the French Open rolls around. It's also not his first injury break. He missed the end of 2005 and early 2006, and famously skipped Wimbledon in 2009, so this is not a one-off and is in fact the building up of a chronic injury that has only gotten worse and will only continue to get worse. Six more slams is simply not going to happen for Nadal.
