Will JHH pass Venus in Greatness?

I cannot believe I'm talking about this lol
Winning 3 slams already, and Justine can still win the French Open again, with 4 slams and more surface-rounded, more weeks in #1, more Tier I titles, etc. etc.... I do believe Justine should pass Venus in greatness soon, like some have predicted Do you think she will?

it is possible but i dont think it will ever happen. justine will always have trouble beating big sis. hingisi has got more weeks at number1, more tier 1s and etc but she is not considered greater than venus. justine will have to start beating vee regularly like lindsay.

You don't consider Hingis greater as Venus at the moment?? I think venus has to achieve some more things to obtain Hingis status. Hingis was #1 for years and has more slams, I don't see how Venus can compete with that at the moment.

To answer the thread-question; It's posible, if it will happen, only the future can tell

No.
Venus will win a lot more slams, if she stays uninjured.
Her present status does not reflect her ability and skill. She possesed the slam winning ways once, and she will get it back.
Christine is good, but she will burn out soon.
And that's a fact, not an opinion.
In FACT, she is ALREADY experiencing burn out. Her medical condition does not have to be the indication, her game reached a peak, and has been dropping I think.

This clay court season and Wimbledon will be an indication of where she REALLY stand with all the field presumably ready for action as of now.

<kind of off topic> I think Hingis' career at this point in time has to be viewed as a more successful career than Venus' career. Hingis has acheived more in my opinion. In terms of who has IMPACTED the sport the most- then it's not even close! The impact that Venus has made on this sport is enough to put Venus in the history books by itself. She has to be credited with expanding the sport, bringing in a whole new audience, influencing how the game is played, influcing how players prepares off court- conditioning, strenght training, etc... But I think Venus needs to win a few more titles and slams to have a greater career, even if a case can be made now, it's not a solid case and if she gets more wins in, which she will, then there won't be any question whose career is greater...

As for Justine vs. Venus.... Jutine's in Venus' boat and needs to do a lot more, at this point in time Venus is leading the way. When it's all said and done they'll both be fighting for the number 3 spot behind Serena and Kim... (I'm entitled to my beliefs)

No, to me Justine still is the 3rd best player in the world. When Venus or Serena are healthy, Justine loses consistently against them.

It's quite possible, though I don't know about it being likely. In fact, I'd say Justine could do it this year by winning at least two of the three upcoming Slams (provided Venus doesn't win the other one).
