This thread dominated by Djokovic fans saying Djokovic will win at least 5 more. The desperation at being 2 behind is palpable. Nadal and Federer fans seem more chilled.
He’s favourite at 3/4 slams and is still playing prime level tennis. 5 more slams is conservative. I’d say more 8-10 if he stays motivated.

Djokovic with 1 more AO and 1 more USO, forever stuck in club 20 with Federer. Everlasting argument on who is greater.

Nadal with 2 more at RG and 1 somewhere else, I feel like at Wimbledon this year.

To be serious, I think the big questions are
1. how long Rafa keeps winning RG (I predict he gets 2 more, maybe 3 - by that point someone has to do something, right? If not, Nadal might start trying to match Federer's entire career at only RG), and
2. how long Djokovic can keep winning elsewhere. He's a firm favorite at AO and Wimbledon every year until proven otherwise and probably the favorite (though much less so) at the USO. If Djokovic loses a step or some players step up to take the reins, he can win as little as 1 slam, but if they don't it could be as many as 5 or even more.

If I had to guess? 2 for Nadal, 3 for Djokovic?
 
Federer: max 1 slam
Nadal: at least 1, max 3
Djokovic: max 4

This is what I think it should be, but wouldn't be very surprised to find out they end up winning 15+... Anyway it doesn't matter. Djokovic is doomed. He'll never get to 35 slams, which he needs to compensate for his lack of aura. It's not that he won't be remembered as a legend of the sport. He won't even be remembered at all. Bad Nole, bad!

Rafa might win 2 more

Novak between 2 and 5: it really depends on both his injuries and if the nextgen can stop him in time

Roggie...might win 2 rds at W in 11 weeks time.

Done me there, bud. USO is Nadal’s kingdom. 4 wins in 7 healthy participation. 2-1 h2h peak to peak. Enjoys the raucous new York atmosphere.
Nadal plays above his HC level at USO djolovic below his. I understand why you say Djokovic is fav but i think Ashe flips the script. Rafa just goes into beast mode. Contrast with laver where Rafa goes into a shell. Novak is like a God there.
Thing is i played on Sunday a guy i have lost to badly indoors even on hard court and at the same club outdoors on hard its nip and tuck. Played him on Sunday on my fav type hardcourt in nice surroundings and i hammered him. No real reason why at our level there should be such a discrepancy but the smells of the flowers and things made me more comfortable. Even at the elite level of Rafa and Novak perhaps such tiny things not even tennis related give them an extra 15 pct or cost them 15 pct which for Rafa and Novak is all it takes to change the result.
Obviously if there are no crowds it changes things but surely they wont play with no crowds again. Last year USO was a failure of epic proportions

I say one or two max, if they’re lucky.
Nadal will likely win one more RG, Fed wins no more slams, Novak one or two. Those predicting 10 more slams between the three of them need to lay off the hallucinogenic substances.

Have you seen the younger players?
The younger players are mentally weak and very inconsistent, but each one of them is capable of beating one of the big3 on a good day. And, most importantly, there are more and more of them, not only the top 10 fiascos, but also some younger and especially some older players who have beaten the big3 in the past.

Quite the opposite. We are confident our guy will be winning a lot more and Nadal only likely to win FO. You are one of the best representatives of this insecurity with your extreme pronouncements.

Federer maybe maybe Wimbledon this year,, but that;s it , 0 after that and realistically 0.
Djokovic 2 maybe 3 out of wimbledon,AO,USO

Nadal is the real winner here ... at least 5 more French Opens - and maybe even 6 or 7 ... 1 or 2 out of the other 3, so 10, maybe 11/12 more for Nadal.

Very soon that won't matter. I don't buy it that either Nadal or Djokovic will win 3 slams after turning 35 like Fed did. I think Nadal can win RG this year and then find it very, very difficult to win another RG at age 36+, despite people claiming he'll be the RG champion when he's 40. Obviously the young players are the biggest garbage generation in OE history, but father time is undefeated on the other side of the coin.

Where have i made a prediction bud about what will happen. Face it Djokovic fans are ruined after 2020. You know as well as i do 2020 cost Djokovic his legacy to be slam leader. The AO win probably makes 2020 even harder to take

Let's say 5 more for Nadal and 8 more for Novak, 0 for Fed. So 13 total is my prediction.

Ok, to each his own I guess. Not sure the crowds will be back actually, who knows when will the situation return to normal from all this madness.
Right now i am not sure we will have any Majors. Cases appear to be rocketing around the world and there is more and more riots taking place which will make lockdowns impossible to enforce.
Djokovic i think is very anti vax. I agree with him. Nadal i think is not keen on travelling. Federer simply not interested in empty stadiums.
All three have always had perspective. Fans are more bothered about slam race than they are. If things keep getting worse i can see all 3 not playing this year. If tournaments demand vaccinations to be had Djokovic will quit i am sure of it. He has principles.

Don't be silly.
As bad as 2020 was, Novak's fans don't complain an AO, a Cincy, and a Rome title, and YE#1, in any year ever, much less during a pandemic.
The way he beat the red hot Medvedev in AO final? Sweet. That he leaves Federer behind in Total Weeks at World #1? Not bad.

If Novak does end up winning more GS than Fed and Rafa, he'll have earned all the accolades.
That being said, if he gets more than, let's say 3 more GS, there has to be something wrong with the strategic and tactical understanding in(corporated in) the training of the contenders to the top. I'm not saying it's easy, but Novak's been around for a few years, and has established himself at the player to beat on HC in slams. And most of the players gunning at him, try the offensive route. Perhaps the reason is that this playing style has become popular due to Fed, but offensive tennis is a losing strategy. You win by making less errors. I haven't seen many players being strategic about drawing errors from Novak. Again, this is not an easy feat, but I'm not really seeing anyone challenging (i.e. trying out different tactics) Novak when it comes to strategy and tactics.

A bit of banter surely is fun.
That AO win was actually outstanding looking at form of players he beat since the event. Kudos to your guy.
 
Well, you have a right to your opinion wrong though it may be. I'd suggest you go back and look at your posts; you criticize Djokovic quite a bit. But maybe you have become a new poster which would be good.

For a while I caught the Meles bug and thought the Next Gen takeover was imminent. Now I think the opposite.

Nadal does look like he's aging, and he's not physically up for hard courts the way he used to be, but he's still as dominant as ever at Roland Garros. He looked lackluster most of the tournament last year and still didn't drop a set. It would take a precipitous decline in his overall level for his run at Roland Garros to come to an end. I think he's got another two or three years, possibly more (and a decent shot at picking up a slam title or two elsewhere in that time; he's still making deep runs everywhere).

Djokovic looks even better. He's gotta be aging the smoothest of any tennis player since, I don't know, Rosewall, when the game was nowhere near as physical as it is today. He's hardly lost a step, let alone faced more severe physical decline like loss of endurance or explosiveness. He doesn't even seem to be on a downward trajectory like Nadal does (who's just at a high enough level, particularly on clay, that it doesn't matter). The only age-related problem he seems to be facing is a general decline in his week-in-week-out consistency, which doesn't really matter for the slams, as he only has to peak for 7 matches spread out over two weeks. Barring a surprise career-ending injury, which of course could happen, though there's no predicting it, I think he's got a good 4 or 5 years left of playing slam-winning tennis, and could very well finish several of those years number one as well (though with the decline in non-slam consistency, someone like Medvedev could sneak in and steal the top ranking away at times).

In raw numbers? Nadal anywhere from 2 to 5 more. Djokovic anywhere from, I don't know, 5 to 8 more.

Outside of Wimbledon Federer has 0 chances of winning another Slam, whether he wins or not I don't know.
Outside of the French Open Rafa has 0 chances of winning another Slam, but at the French his numbers are high so another 2 seems possible, 15 french opens is his limit.
Djokovic has a chance at adding another 4-5 slams, how much he wins needs to be seen.

So the realistic number is 6-7 slams combined for the big 3, i.e another 2-3 years give or take.

Anybody saying 10 is hallucinating.

This is a good prediction and analysis. I doubt Nadal stays around for 5 more years particularly if Djokovic wins enough slams to pass him and he is only competitive at RG.

When Djokovic crosses Federer and Nadal then they might retire, If Nadal loses this year at the french then things will be very complicated for him next year.....already Federer seems demoralized by the fact that other 2 guys are gonna cross him, he will not mind Rafa crossing him but when Novak crosses he might call it a day, I hope not but I feel so..... Djokovic if not stopped he will bury Fedal.
