Pete Sampras thinks Rafael Nadal has a lot of chances to beat Roger Federer's 19 Grand Slams. The former American player suggested the Spaniard could have a few more competitive years at the top level. 'Basically it’s up to Rafa and how much he wants to play and how much he loves the game,' the 14-time Major winner told The Independent 'If he said: "Hey guys, I’m gonna play until I’m at least 35," I’d say he’s got a pretty good shot at doing it.

If you do the maths, he’s going to have many chances to win majors and he has the heart and mind to continue winning them. He will always be a favourite at the French and while Wimbledon will be a stress, at the other two [Slams] he’s always going to be in the top-two favourites.

It really is entirely is up to him if he wants to play into his mid-30s like Roger.' He also added that Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray will comeback in a good place next year: 'I think if you take that much time off, they’re going to be very eager and determined [to succeed].

I’m sure Novak and Andy are going to be right in the mix next year and compete for majors.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: 'Being a good person is worth more than any title' .
