2006 a Slam Win year for Maria?

Could the results of early this season be an indicator that Maria will win her second slam this year? She made it to the semis, then the finals, and now has tucked a title away. She seems to be gaining momentum and the shoulder injury seems to be something she can deal with now.

Watch her win Wimbledon this year.

Hopefully I'm right...but I really have a good feeling about this.

That's the educated guess because of the surface, and the USO is also possible, she has a great game for that.

Well...its hard to say. If Venus is in form, she has to be the favorite for Wimbledon. Venus on grass is unbelievable.

Roland Garros is a stretch, but anything is possible. US Open would be a good win for her.

Correct. Maria has realistic chances to win Wimbledon and the US Open for the remainder of the year. Last year, she probably would have gotten to the final had she not met Kim earlier and she probably would have made it a more competitive final. But Kim was just due that slam win considering her great 2005 season.

I think that she will win another GS this year. Wimbledon or USO i don't know. I just feel like it. It might be Wimbledon because she said that she wants to.
And she seems to get what she wants.

Maria will be a huge chance to win Wimbledon this year. It is her Forte playing on the grass but if she can stay healthy and confident the US open is well within reach

It's possible, just as it was last year. I don't see her winning Roland Garros, especially with her difficulties against JHH. Wimby is her best shot, but that's also the best shot of a couple other ladies on tour, ie. Lindsay and Vee. If Vee is on and focused, the rest of the field doesn't have a shot, but we've only really had that once in 2 years. Throw in a possibly fit Serena, JHH, etc. and Wimby is going to be tough. I thought that Maria had a better shot at the AO than the USO this year. The AO surface suits her game better IMO with its high bounces. She could have problems at the USO with Kim, Mary, etc. Once again, it *could* happen, as she has a good shot. Unfortunately for her, there's about 8 other ladies that are just as capable of winning a slam now.

Martina/Serena/Venus/Monica

Lindsay*ElenaD*Milagros*Mary*Svetlana*Nuria*
Mashona*Dinara*Laura*Chrissie*VeraD*JelenaD*Lucie*

Ana*Sania*Shuai*Katarina*Nadia*Chanda*Ai*

Yes shes very good on grass and has a good shot at Wimbledon but I dont see her winning it this year. Becuase there are other players who are better on grass and I think would beat Sharapova on any given day. like Venus......Serena, Mauresmo and Henin-Hardenne
