You're not factoring in the discovery, in 2012 of EZ-Pass access to
the Multiverse. So in reality there will be an average of 20,417 Slams
per year to be won. Of course, we may not want to count the four on
Earth-2-prime, since all native players are under fourteen inches
tall, but still.

Myself, I cannot wait to see Our Federer play the Evil Federer of
Earth-123. Or the Sampras of Earth-44, who is only 25 due to slight a-
synchronicity, play Nadal. And then there's the John McEnroe of
Earth-7, who, last year, at age 49, went 86-1, losing only to the
Gulbis of his Universe in the final of the Miami Masters, when he
sprung his truss.

Do the math. Please. For all three of them to get to fifteen would
take us til 2018 - and that assumes that no-one else wins anything.
Which would mean that Murray, the youngest, would have to win at least
one, probably two, Grand Slams in his thirties.

Federer currently has 13 slams, and needs two more to pass Sampras.
Nadal currently has 5 slams, and needs ten more to pass Sampras.
Murray currently has 0 slams, and needs 15 more to pass Sampras.

Add those together, and the three need 27 more slams to pass Sampras.
Theoretically, that could happen at Wimbledon 2015.

Yes, and Djokovic and Tsonga and Del Potro will also beat Sampras 14
slams, maybe a few other guys too. What a great era!
