Question GS Winners: Only 8 chances left for 00' to surpass 90's.

As I'm sure most of you know, 1 or more of the 40 Slams played from 1990-1999 were won by the following group of 12:

1.Graf
2. Seles
3. Navratilova
4. Sabatini
5. Sanchez Vicario
6. Martinez
7. Pierce
8. Hingis
9. Majoli
10. Novotna
11. Davenport
12. S. Williams

With the 2007 US Open now completed, 32 Slams have been played since January 2000 and 1 or more was won by one of the following group of 11:

1. Davenport
2. Pierce
3. V. Williams
4. Capriati
5. S. Williams
6. Henin-Hardenne
7. Myskina
8. Sharapova
9. Kuznetsova
10. Clijsters
11. Mauresmo

Now with 8 Slams left until the close of the 00's, do you think the current group will tie or surpass the 90's group of 12 winners? OR do you think there will be no other new GS champion for the remainder of the decade?

I think the '00 group will tie the 90's but NOT surpass them because Henin, Venus and Serena are too dominant.

I love you, Dean. I love you, Kiera.

It could happen, but it would have to be a 2004 French Open type of thing; if Justine for some reason doesn't win, practically anyone else could.

Re: GS Winners: Only 8 chances left for 00' to surpass 90's.

I think the 00's group will surpass the 90's group.

Within the next 2 years only 2 of these players need to win a slam, and I think they are all capable of it; Vaidisova, Ivanovic, Jankovic, Chakvetadze, Safarova, Paszek

I think it will happen.

NICOLE VAIDISOVA

Dokic - Hantuchova - Zakopalova - Minella - Szavay - Bammer - Safarova
Stanciute - Panova - Gubacsi - Cibulkova - Cirstea - Hofmanova - Cetkovska

I think the 00's will surpass the 90's since they're some youngsters who're pretty promising at the moment.
