The way he is playing now is definitely not better than he was in 2011 and at that year he couldn't do it. So why do you think he can do it now?

But sure I will quote you this post by the end of the French Open.
Because I think he's better than Murray, because Federer is worse and because Nadal is now coming back from injury.

No one else deserves a mention.

Djokovic's tennis may not be better, but his mentality has grown a lot stronger. Sometimes that is more important.

I think Murray will win either Wimbledon or US but I'd tip Djokovic to win 3 of the 4.

What are you talking about? I never said he hasn't been tested. FYI he lost to Tomic in the Hopman cup. I just said it's hard to predict who will beat him, not that he'd go the year undefeated.

Nadal winning was no surprise. Ferrer always bends over for him

I agree with this.

I wouldn't be hugely shocked if he managed to win all four but I still think Murray will win another one this year too. Federer isn't at his best anymore, and Nadal is coming back from injury still (although he could easily improve and be near his best towards the later half of the year) and I think he'll beat Murray more often than Murray beats him. So I think he'll win three, and Murray the other one.

Rafa could still win RG. He's still got plenty of time to return to good enough form.

Wimbledon is the most open out of the Grand Slams. Murray, Djokovic, Federer, and Nadal (if he's back to a good level by then) can win it. You also got outsiders like Tsonga, Berdych and Del Potro.

Djokovic's tennis may not be better, but his mentality has grown a lot stronger. Sometimes that is more important.
It is true that Djokovic is better than them atm but it is not like he is much better than them, the difference between is actually small. So they are capable of beating Djokovic.

It was the same case in 2011, Djokovic was better than all of them and he was actually playing much better than he is now and yet wasn't able to do it.

Winning 4 slams in one year is very hard thing to do and the fact that only 2 players in the history of tennis were able to do it shows that.

As for the slams, at the start of the year I thought that Federer could actually win at least a slam, but with the way things are going this year, I can't see that happening at all. For RG I think Nadal will win it because he still has some time to recover and be prepared, and even if he is not at his best he will probably still win it because he is that good at clay.

For Wimbledon, Djokovic's is my pick and for US Open, it's Murray.

Acapulco, Mexico, Mar 4 (EFE).- Spanish tennis star Rafael Nadal confirmed that he plans to play in the hard-court tournament that begins on Monday in Indian Wells, California.

The Spanish star said the event in the Southern California desert was one of his favorites.

"I love it and I look forward to competing," Nadal said.

The March 4-17 BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells is one of the tennis season's nine ATP World Tour Masters 1000 events, which rank only below the four Grand Slam tournaments and the season-ending ATP World Tour Finals in terms of ranking points and prestige.

The Spanish star, who won the Mexican Open over the weekend, also confirmed that he planned to play in an exhibition on Monday at New York's Madison Square Garden along with Argentina's Juan Martin del Potro.

"The exhibition in New York will help me get on a hard court before the Masters in Indian Wells and I'll go there after that," Nadal said.

The 26-year-old Nadal, an 11-time Grand Slam champion, is on the comeback trail from a knee injury that sidelined him for seven months.

Nadal began last summer on a high note by capturing a record 7th French Open title with a victory over world No. 1 Novak Djokovic of Serbia in the final, but he went off the ATP Tour following a shocking second-round loss at Wimbledon.

The Spanish star said in August that he was suffering from a knee ailment known as Hoffa's syndrome, which is also known as fat pad impingement and involves pain and swelling around the bottom and under the kneecap.
That's awesome, would love to see him go far in the tournament and play the top players.
Indian wells should be great. Can't wait!
