He could win ten slams if injury free many seasons and playing in current form.

he’s looking more and more like the next Djokovic.

3 USOs and 2 AOs.
He'll be his generation's great, but not an ATG.
 
The problem is that he seems to be just a hard court specialist so that leaves him only 2 chances per year. I am guessing in the 6 range, and that might be generous. Something like 2 Australians, 3 or 4 U.S Opens, and maybe a non hard court slam somehow.

If he gets more than around 3 or 4 then upon reflection you'd have to say that this era really is very weak in my view. Doubt that will happen though.

Nadal is a clay court specialist, but that didn’t stop him from winning 5 slams on hardcourt and 2 on grass.

Medvedev is in similar situation to young peak Nadal. He is dominant on hardcourt, and he rounding into his peak form when the competition is weak enough that he will have opportunities to compete for slams on his weaker surfaces.

Come on mate, Nadal showed glimpses of top quality as early as 05 on hard and 06 on grass...
 
Med will still be playing his nobody-believes-in-me card in 2022, even as he becomes World #1.
He's done a lot of hard but not on clay/grass so far. His RG QF run at least established he can beat lesser players there, next step is taking on Zverev/Tsitsipas. Considering their mental frailty Medvedev may have a shot ha. He did have a chance in sets 2&3 vs Titty this year despite being generally outplayed.

nadal was great on hard court in his younger career. beat peak fed a few times on hard early on(no one else beat peak fed in masters apart from canas). won olympic games in 2008 , won ao 2009. won us open 2010 with a big serve, finalist 2011. dominated fed in an ao in 2014 i believe? finalist AO 2012(6 hour match - long time between points), would've won that match had it been any other player bar djokovic.

Nadal was a lot better than it seems on hard court. he's one of the all time greats.
