she could, but im not even sure she'll play

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

imagine having won the 3 other slams, the Olympics, Fed cup and Year-end championships, that would have been the icing on the cake!

don't see it happen though... her best chances were 1998 and 1999 i think!

Sharapova
Azarenka Kerber
Pavlyuchenkova Sakkari Muguruza Goerges Wickmayer Kleybanova Kuznetsova Halep Shvedova Kasatkina Bencic Kanepi Svitolina Cirstea Tsurenko Vekic
Dementieva Clijsters Petrova

Hmm, I don't think so.
But she has a shot.

Lindsay and clay?! Don´t exactly rime imo....too slow, too many counter-punchers who can frustrate her to death, not mobile enough.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Of course she can...but will she, and who will stop her?

I am patient, but do not push, for it is silently one night I will wake, and you will find me gone come morning.

I don't think she'll win; but she had a really great clay season last year, so we'll see...

I really doubt it. I think her best shot at a major is the Australian Open - IMO, if she hadn't had to play Justine in the QF, she'd have done extremely well.

It could happen... but she's certainly not in the Top 3-7 faves to win it.

Justine, Kim, Venus and Serena have far greater chances to win than Lindsay. I just can't see her beat them on clay.
1998 was her best chance.
