Djokovic will win W and USO but not AO?
What kinda drugs u on m8? :laughing:
Come on my friend bullieve that Rafa can break that AO curse next year :D

My reasons for tipping Rafa to win the AO next year is that he is very much a confidence player. If he turns up to the AO next year with two slams under his belt from 2019 and possibly the # 1 ranking he may just do it. I'm also curious as to how serious Djokovic's injury troubles are (maybe not serious at all but time will tell).

Anyway, we'll see what happens, I may be wrong but in those 'predict the slam winner' threads, I was 4/4 in both 2018 and 2019 ;)

So you think Djokovic will win 6 of the next 8 slams? Even in 2015-2016 - his most prolific part of his career he was only 5/8.

The next gen is nowhere to be seen and will not be until the Big 3 retire. There haa been predictions of the next gen and and lost gen winning Slams for a decade, all of them failing.

So, by the end of 2021 the Big 3 will be even out...

It depends on how much the Big 3 have degraded by next year. Could easily go 4 for 4 again, but I think we'll see 2 new winners next season. Medvedev will likely be one of them, if not two of them. If I was to split the difference, I'd say

Djokovic x2, Nadal x1, and Medvedev x1 in 2020.
Djokovic x1, Nadal x1, and Non Big 3 x2 in 2021.

Rafa @21
Fed @20
Djoko @19 (by 2021)
What makes you think the Big 3 will have degraded by the end of next year?

Basel will be promoted to a GS? Can’t see any other way these 22 appear on the screen.
He almost beat nadal and djokovic back to back bar the choke of the century.

Hes still the top3 ar at worst top5 favorite at every slam...even RG

So you dont see a possibility in any dimension for him to win 1 or 2 slams?

Sure..

Lol these guys have been out there running around for 15 years at the top 3 spots. If they are winning slams the year AFTER next, as much as I like Rafa, something is wrong.

Nadal looks good in that picture. Was this picture from 2006/2007?

A totally identical slam repeat never happened on the men's tour, probably not the women's either. Not even during Big 3 era is it at all likely.

Rafa never defended a HC slam. Why would he do it aged 34?

And no using Canadian Open as an example, it's not a slam.

I.e. you have to change one of your winners.

Its what Nadal does. He makes records and shuts people up. More people say about USO defending curse, more likely he is to win it. Time and time again he proves people wrong.

You are right about Major repeat years never happening but never before have the top 2 been so far ahead of the rest as Nadal and Djokovic are.

Sure, but never have they been more prone to injuries.

This is a key reason why a repeat simply isn't likely. At least one slam one of them will skip due to injury or retire from, or both might.

They will be 33 and 34.

I don’t really rate Fed’s chances of winning a slam anymore. His last real chance I think will come at next years Aussie Open. Djokovic will definitely grab at least 2 more slams. Nadal probably will too, but I think by 2021 Thiem will have a genuine shot at the aging bull. Medvedev nailed on for a slam next year. Big 3 never dominate the USO, it’s his for the taking, they’re only getting older and he’s only getting better.

Any prediction i make is based assuming full fitness. Impossible to know when injury strikes
