Winning the Grand Slam... or what?

Why is it that the world never remembered the name of Johann Gambolputty de von Ausfern-

What Wimbledon has proven is that Venus can win almost anything, she puts her 100% into it.

The most probable is Justine, I could imagine Lindsay and Venus to complete their career slam as well. What I'd wish most for is for Mary to do it though

This isn't the Grand Slam! The Grand Slam is to win all four Slams in one year. All the players listed are going for the Career Slam.

The answer is Justine, anyway.

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.

I would like to say Venus but will go for Justine. Venus has the potential to win both the Australian and the French and definitely has the potential to add a couple more Wimbledons and US Opens to her tally. The other three are out of the picture I'm afraid. Last year's US Open was Capriati's biggest chance to win that title.

Venus already as a Career Slam as a finalist.
And Venus has a greater chance of winnning RG than Henin does of winning Wimbledon. She has a good clay court record, and while only reaching the final of RG once, she has the second best W/L records on clay among active players.
