Sure - if Svetlana Kuznetsova can do it anybody can

But seriously..... yes - can she beat 3 top players in a row? Yes.

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

yes, she's won 5 already...no reason she can't win another, especially the french, ESPECIALLY if justine continues to constantly get injured

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

Well she has already won a number of GS... Lol. I know what you mean - and I think she could. She's already proven that she can beat the top players. Her real threats in grand slams are Mauresmo, Clijsters and Sharapova. And Dementieva. I don't really think anyone else could stand in her way. Except Davenport on a good day...

At Roland Garros all she needs, I believe, is avoiding JHH and Elena Dementieva. She can beat everyone else.

i think she's a great player, but i don't think so. i'd say her only chance would be at the french.

Serena Williams.

16-Time Grand Slam Champion.

2013 Titles: Brisbane, Sony Open (Miami), Family Circle Cup, Madrid, Rome, 16th SLAM-THE FRENCH OPEN, Bastad, Roger's Cup

2013 Record: (60-4)

Even at her best she wasn't able to win the grand glam (closest was in 1997, winning 3 GS tournaments in 1 year).

So I don't think she's capable of doing it now

Kim and Maria won't threaten Martina on clay. Venus is washed out. At least on clay. Sveta .. she needs to get her shit together first..

Yes, she has won 15 Grand Slams already, the last one 2 month ago in the mixed double in Melbourne...

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Even "washed out" Venus can smack Hingis imo

I suppose a more apt question would be, can she beat 3 power players in a row?
