1. I think he would try to make the best of his time both on clay and grass, the two surfaces on which he has the best shot to win more GS titles. 2. You are probably right 3. Same as 2. 4. Delpo, Berdych and Ferrer are pretty different players. I feel Delpo has a lot more potential than the other two. If one of those three were to bag a slam, I would excpet it to be Delpo. However, I might see Ferrer rise to the number 4 spot in virtue of his consistence. I would still find it hard to imagine Ferrer winning a slam. He is very good but lacks something against the big guns when he gets to the semi-finals. 5. It will indeed become difficult for Nadal to surpass Sampras, although if he sticks to a combination of RG and Wimbledon it might be possible. After such a long time, one might wonder if Rafa is ever coming back anyway.
