None of the Big 3 will ever win another Slam.

Fed is finnish
Nadal can easily win 10 more dirtball world championships. Probably nothing else.
Djokovic still has 4-5 years to whoop up on the all the mugs in next gen. Might end with 25-26 salamies.

This is pretty much how I feel but OP could also be right. You never know, the bottom could fall out for all of them next year and that's that. With players like this it will be tough to see the end coming. Even Fed still has chances. What if he squeaks into a Wimbledon final and faces Berrettini, Shapo, or Musetti? If he is actually match fit, outside of Djoker there's no one who totally has his number.

Djokovic has until 2023 where he can win slams, he is nowhere near his best yet he's winning slams and reaching masters finals, his decline is gradual rather than just an almighty drop off.

I think next year is Nadal's last year of being in contention for the French Open, if you told me in 2009 that Nadal would be in the top ten in 2021 I would laugh at you.

Federer could win Wimbledon but he can't enter Wimbledon cold, he needs to be match fit with zero knee issues but believe me as you get older it gets harder.......harder to keep up the same level of fitness as you did when you were younger.

Federer is retired. Whatever Nadal has before he retires, Djokovic will retire only when Nadal is retired and he has one more than Nadal.
No need to bookmark this. You will remember it. You already did.

Of all the reasons why they might not win more Slams, the last one would be that they don’t want it badly enough anymore when they are all tied on 20 titles.

Novak will win 2-3 more and cover our world in darkness. No children will sleep well.
The blue bra woman really messed it up.

Nole In masters since 2011
2011 5/7
2012 3/9
2013 3/9
2014 4/8
2015 6/8
2016 4/8
2017 0/4
2018 2/8
2019 2/8
2020 2/2

Nole is winning as minimum as 2 masters every year. His last big win over next gen in masters mag be Tsitsipas and Shapovalov in Bercy 2019. And he has been winning tons of slams where even next gen can't do much. The same Tsitsipas who beat Nadal at AO couldn't beat Nole twice now at RG. It's Rafa who is declined.

The want it badly enough was a joke. They all want it badly, huge dysfunctional egos.

But, anyone who thinks Fedal wins another clearly has no experience with injuries. It's actually kind of cute.
Novak may win more, but time is not on his side.

The next generation is joke. If you watch the matches against Djokovic and Rafa, it is clear as mud. Moreover you just dont need these two on clay and grass. The young gen can lose to journeymen there.

Novak and Rafa can win for another 3-4 years more easily unless and until one player elevates their game, chances of which are very remote. It has to be someone like Alcaraz or Tsitsipas , as they seem to have the most potential.

If they got stopped it will be by someone random whose game they don’t know yet not the next gen

Who is better than Djokovic at the AO?
Who is better than Nadal and Djokovic at the FO?
Who is better than Djokovic at Wimbledon?
Are Djokovic and Nadal still amongst the top 5 favorites at the USO and are there players who are way better than them?
Does Djokovic have any injuries?

Seriously asking for answers to these questions as I don’t understand the premise of the OP at all.

Who of Next Gen has a prayer on clay
And grass? none have really shown anything off hard courts
Grass you may have a point. There are a few who I think will eventually get there but healthy Djokovic seems the clear favorite for Wimbledon 2022. But thinking in terms of grass possible contenders I am too tired at the moment.

Clay is up for grabs. Lots of players could win RG 2022

In rough order of probability:

Healthy Nadal
Tsitsipas
Healthy Thiem
Sinner
Djokovic
Rudd
Alcaraz
Rublev
Schwartzman

players develop and evolve. We cannot speculate beyond 2022 season.

I keep hearing this lunacy over and over ever since Roger's surgeries.

Do you understand the effects of a 150 min, best of 5 match takes on your body ? You're competing against pro players 10 or 20 years younger, faster, quicker, with far less mileage, who can afford spending 4/5 hours on the court each rd and still be fresh for the final.

Add into the equation the problem of cartilage pain .

And finish by mentioning Roger cannot recuperate at 41 from efforts like a 25 year old can.

When you add everything up, you end-up with a straight sets defeat in the quarters, a bagel in the last set, at your pet slam..

If only there was a way for human beans to spend 5 hrs/day chasing down every single ball, playing defense only tennis, and still be fresh as a daisy the next day.

Tsitsipas and thiem i feel have gone backwards. Alcaraz might be too early for him. Sinner needs a bigger out wide serve. Ruud a definite contender and i might put money on him of he makes quarters in australia and backs that up at IW.
