Serena has a career slam and has one four in a row...so the golden slam, wouldn´t have been farfetched.

Serena has been no.1 for 53 weeks, so with health....who knows.

With their games?! Not a bad bet to think that they may well be beating players their juniors..

Serena is the safest bet for that. 1 1 2 2...so she may well do it.

Always bet on black!

I think they have the potential, but they will have to play a full schedule
With players like Kim and Justine around , it's not enough to play 12 tournaments a year...

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

Yep...the Belgians are too good for that now.

1. No
2. No
3. Yes
4. No

Neither will get near Graf.

Myskina * Henin-Hardenne * Zvonerava

Davenport - Dementieva

Who knows?....it's too early in their careers to tell.....at least we can say that they are the closest to reaching those goals than any other players.....

"They'll never win a grandslam title" LOL!
"They'll never be ranked #1" LOL!
"They'll never win a title on clay" LOL!
"All they do is hit hard" LOL!
"Venus will never win another Tier I title" LOL!
"Venus will never beat another top-5 player" LOL!
"Venus will never win another grand slam title" LOL!
