Which woman will win her 6th grand slam first, Justine, Martina or Venus?

So, the Australian Open is about to start, now obviously Justine is the clear favourite to win the title. If Justine wins in Australia she will hit a milestone winning her 6th grand slam. Serena is currently the only active WTA player that has won more then 6 slams. Venus Williams, Martina Hingis, and Justine Henin Hardenne are all tied with 5 slams each. I actually think Martina Hingis is going to surprise people in Australia and could win the whole thing. Venus is injured and has fallen off. So I can see Martina or Justine winning a 6th grand slam first.

I think Justine will win a 6th GS singles title first.

I don't see Venus having a real shot until Wimbledon... but I could definitely see JHH and Martina winning the AO. Those 2 with Maria are my 3 top picks to win the AO.

It'll be Justine hands down I'd say, but hey Martina could throw a spanner in the works if she's at her best.

Justine, and I think she'll have it by the end of next month too, I'd rather it be Venus though...

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Justine has a 90% chance of taking home one of the first 2 Grand Slams, they just suit her game, same with Martina, except she lacks that power Justine has, but she could make a run at one of them, Venus to me is not even in the picture at the moment.

Re: Which woman will win her 6th grand slam first, Justine, Martina or Venus?

I'd love to see Martina win another slam next month at the AO...but the faster conditions will only lessen her odds. I hope Martina can sneek through a draw and grab one more slam before she is done (again), but she will need a kind draw / certain players not at their best. No more Davenport is a boon. Clijsters being done in a while will be too.

I see Justine/Masha as the faves for AO title, and Justine as the top contender for the FO...so most likely she will take her 6th in the first two slams of next year.

Poor Venus

Re: Which woman will win her 6th grand slam first, Justine, Martina or Venus?

Justine has won at least one major in each of the last 4 years.
Martina and Venus combined have won one major in the last 5 years.
So Justine would be a huge betting favorite.

But I don't think Justine winning more majors is a given. Two of the players she played in slam finals this year are getting older and better. There are other pretty good players around.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Justine is the logical answer right now. Do mighty fine in every tournament she plays.

Hingis could show even better things in 2007 so we should not write her off.

Venus' health is a question. let's go step by step.

but this is tennis, you never know. they may all end 2007 without the sixth slam.


to new beginnings.

Probably JHH.

Venus lacks match play.

Hingis needs to get past a QF first (in her comeback).
