I'd say 1 of the remaining 2 slams is the most likely outcome. But i'm not sure which is more likely between 0 slams and 2 slams. Leaning 0, personally.

Novak's level was fantastic at the business end of AO/RG, yet a lot of things still had to break just right for him to win each one. Will Novak be able to raise his level even higher? Unlikely at this age. Will things continue breaking in his favor? Maybe, but I wouldn't really count on it turning out that way at both of the remaining slams.

It's the best opportunity he will get, that's for sure:

- Federer looks in poor shape after the injury
- Nadal has not beaten him on hard or grass for about 8 years now
- Murray is no longer playing at the level he used to after the injury
- Wawrinka is a non-factor
- Thiem is in poor form
- Zverev hasn't beaten a top 10 at a major in many attempts
- Medvedev got destroyed by Djokovic at the AO, no reason why that wouldn't happen again if they meet
- Tsitsipas poor return of serve which will be a huge factor outside of clay
- Berrettini has easily exposable weaknesses (just pound his backhand all day)

So it's hard to see who would beat him. Having said that, he was pushed to 5 sets by Fritz at the AO, Musetti at RG and Tsitsipas at RG. It's not like he is giving a beatdown to all his opponents, some of the matches have been close.
 
Nadal will win one of the next 2 slams like Toni said, so no.
I’m not sure about that. He has a chance but in my opinion he’s not favourite for either. Rafa is very vulnerable on grass despite 2 good runs last 2 times. He may make 2nd week but he’s a long shot to win it.

At us open they changed the surface which affects things. The next gen are also a lot better and believe they can beat Rafa on a HC. It’s not just Djokovic he has to worry about on hard courts now.

Highly unlikely. Even if he wins Wimbledon, he probably would succumb to the pressure at the USO like Serena in 2015 against Vinci

Not looking past his first Wimbledon match though

But if by some miracle he manages to do it, I could see him retiring on the spot with the ultimate mic drop :D

In that scenario Nadal goes on to tie him in AO22, obtaining the dual career slam

Novak returns from retirement to meet Nadal at the FO.

But then Tsitsipas surprises everyone by beating both of them, back to back

a new era begins!

I think djoko even if he passes them will not stop straight away. I think the threat from nadal especially will still be there to motivate Novak to try win a few more.

There is also the motivation to try get closer to Feds record Wimbledon and us open titles. I think Novak would shorten his schedule more though. In order to spend even more time with his family.

Not sure how long they all play for. Maybe 3-4 years for djoko but playing less and less each year. It’s hard to predict but probably similar for Rafa too

I'm leaning towards no just because it has never been done in my life and all that. Not ruling it out or anything. Just a case of believe it when I see it and well done if it happens.
