No. What's that?

Three years is too far to predict.

You also thought he will be 2nd place in 2016 and he shouldn't be even in the top 20 or at best tier 7 great in 2003. Whatever he will be he is still above Sampras.

LOL. Buried in clay, perhaps. For whatever that's worth.

Not sure I see Djoker coming back to win that many more slams? Could be
wrong but he seems to have completely lost it.

Fed is happy in 8th place in my system.

So you think Djoker will be able to win 7 more slams in the next few years. Let's say Djoker is able to get back some sort of form in the next year. He won 11 slams in 6 years during his peak years, that is just below 2 slam per year, how likely that he is going to win 2 slam from 2018 when he is close to 31 and for the next 3 years ?

And Sampras is top in your system if you count from the bottom.

How do you know he's not just pursing his lips and mouthing nonsense syllables? You'd never know the difference.

I tip Nadal as the favorite. He's a two-time W champ and is in prime
form right now. Fed was in tremendous form, but the past 2 months off
could have made him rust. It will be very interesting to see how he
emerges on to grass, but it's a question mark to me.

Fed taking a break seems to make him sharper at this age so that won't
be an issue. Plus he'll have the advantage of practicing grass game
while everyone else is in clay mode.
 
He also won't feel his 18 is safe with Rafa breathing down his neck &
being nearly 5 yrs younger.

When was the last time he had some decent result at Wimbledon ?

2011. 6 years.
Slightly bigger gap then between Federer's last two slam titles
2012 and 2017.

Same here. Rafa absolutely amazing on clay (a beast on a court of any kind really). Borg was so good/great on clay; then comes Nadal. Sports has internal laws of progressive governance along lines of cultural manifestation. For the balance of the 21st Century his will be a standard, a kind of hyper metric like Joe Louis' 25 heavyweight title defences or Babe Ruth's 714, which will more than likely last most of the balance of this century. At least one would think so. Even sports records have 'singularities' though true metric singularities (records) are - as one might expect - even more rare.
