Serena the 9th woman

hey you guys,

i just want to know what you think of Serena and becoming the 9th woman in history to win all Majors. Martina obviously was the prediction in the past with that elusive Roland Gaross. Lindsay also has a chance.

but since the Australian comes before the French, i have a feeling Serena will beat out Marti or Lindsay for that coveted spot in history. What do you guys think?

I think she has the best chance for the simple reason that I don't think rebound ace is such a worse surface for her!(despite that she had some of her painfull loses there but then she also had them in wimbledon before this year)
Lindsay doesn't like clay, Martina has mental problems at the french, Monica same in wimbledon(and other things)
imho serena is in the best position to make it full right now too!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

yeah serena would probably be the first... and to think a year ago... Martina and Venus and Lindsay were the main picks...

Lindsay Jelena Maria

Mary : Monica : Svetlana : Sania : Jennifer : Amelie

With two GS wins under her belt this year, Serena is definitely the most likely woman to achieve it at the moment.

at the rate she's going, she'll complete the grand slam events in the southern summer of '03.

Serena has a great chance to complete the career grand slam. I think she will become the 9th woman to make it happen.

i think Lindsay will never win the French-Open
and martina too.

yes, Serena is the big favorit now, but she need to work harder in the off season as the last years.

And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off
