The first in which she reaches the FINAL. She rarely loses in finals.

She lost in two finals this year already didn't she? Anyways, I really don't know anymore. Before, I thought that she was almost there. But now, almost there doenst seem like it means much anymore. I mean, I'm still optimistic, but honestly, I don't see her improving that much by the U.S. Open. Unless she catches on fire like Clijsters did. I think Aus Open 08 will be her best shot. The high bounces should help her. She really was very close this year to defeating Justine. She's alwyas a threat at Wimbledon. But again, as of now, she's only a threat, not a favorite. Not even that likely. She'll have to improve ALOT. Of course, I'd rather have Martian win the Aus Open, so.....

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Who knows …. I mean, there are some strong up and comers, Ivanovic, Vaidisova, Chakvatadze, Golovin, Safina, Radwanska sisters and even Kusnetsova, Jankovic, Perry, Jamea Jackson and so on. After the current top players are through, any one or more of these ladies, could come through and block Maria out. Kuznetsova is a better player than Maria, and you ca imagine she will be getting more consistent and solid with time (and has also made her second slam final, before Maria and is an all court player).

Kuznetsova, IMO is more likely to be the big factor in the following years, than Maria S, and I’m sure the other girls will catch up. If so… Maria may never win another slam. Stranger things have happened.

How many finals has she been in recently... and how many won? She lost Dubai, and Miami and won her only title of over a year and a half in Indian wells with a depleted feild (not defeating a top 5 player).

Oh and Sania Mirza, and Krajicek could also be factors.

MARTIAN!? or do u mena martina?

I think she could win AUS OPEN or WIMBLEDON in 08. I think she just needs to lose more to get even more fire behind her, clean up the net game, and get passed this SF block she is having. =)

honestly, i don't think she'll win the US Open this year. who knows with her, it's too hard to guess because she hasn't been beyond the semi's since her first GS title.

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)

I don't think that Chakvetadze, Golovin, the Radwanska sisters (maybe Ula), Jankovic, Perry, and Jackson will reach Maria's level.

Kuznetsova is already at Maria's level, maybe even higher than her.

Vaidisova, Ivanovic, and Safina are still a step below her, but I think they will reach her eventually.

Also, there are juniors that are coming behind her.

Still, I think Maria will win more grand slams.

The positive for her is she's reached the SF's of all of the majors except RG, so at least she knows she can play on the other surfaces and she's gotten close at OZ and USO. Just going by her game though I would say the OZ and USO are her best bets after Wimbledon, which I think will always be her best shot since she admits it's her favorite slam.

For some reason I see her winning at Aus. She seems to enjoy playing there and I can see her holding that trophy for some reason.

Мари́я Ю́рьевна Шара́пова​ , Јелена Јанковић, Venus Williams.

Well when WE want to see things so badly, we often mistake this feeling for... 'i can see it for some reason'.

By By Aus 2007, Kim will be making her last charge, Hingis will be ready to fight, hopfully Serena will be fighting back, Venus will be marking her ground, Justine will be looking to make Amends, Kusnetsova will believe, and Amelie will look to defend. It will take a miraculous draw and some big retirements so Maria to win. Not forgetting Lindsay and Pierce will be looking to fight. They are all better than Maria.
