Re: Will Serena win a slam in 2008?

I don't think this question can be answered yes or no, at least I don't think you can pick an answer right now, there's alot of if's.

I didn't vote because there was no "who freakin' knows with this woman" option. Seriously

Re: Will Serena win a slam in 2008?

If she wants to, YES. That is the question. People questioned Serena's fitness during the Australian open but that didn't stop her from winning a grand slam. If she is hungry for an another grand slam and gets all the preparation in, there is no doubt she will be in a final of a grand slam. Who will stop her winning the slam in the finals you say? Her sister maybe or Justine

Serena's going to win another gram slam next year I say.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

Re: Will Serena win a slam in 2008?

Let's see how long it's taken her from 1 major title to the next:

1999 US Open - 5 majors
2002 French Open - 7 majors
2002 Wimbledon - next major
2002 US Open - next major
2003 Australian Open - next major
2003 Wimbledon - 1 major
2005 Australian Open - 3 majors
2007 Australian Open - 4 majors

It's been 3 majors since her last GS title. It would seem that she would win one next year, but you never know. I hope she does, but that's Serena for ya!

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]

Re: Will Serena win a slam in 2008?

I think she should play more tournaments so that she becomes match tough.Its been a long time since she won five successive in five days.This year she has only played two smaller events Hobart and Rome,she should play more to build match fitness .I think she is tiring easily because she doesnt play as much as she should.
She hasnt won a title outside of Miami in a long time,if she starts winning these events she will start winning those matches she is losing.Grand slams are within her reach until she starts playing and winning smaller events.

You can never make predictions about Serena, remember the AO this year

Re: Will Serena win a slam in 2008?

No.. the fight will be between Venus and Justine for the top I think. Don't forget Jankovic, Kuznetsova, and Ivanovic are getting better and Sharapova and Mauresmo will be back.

Serena won AO unexpectedly, but we'll never know how good that run was or if it was as good as Justine's run at RG or VEnus's run at Wimbledon. The competition wasn't as great and everyone was caught by surprise. Serena also seems to have lost the fire she had there. No one knows what will happen next year, but if Serena is the same way she is now.. I dont think she has a chance.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Will Serena win a slam in 2008?

Serena was in much worse situation by this time last year, and she still pulled of a GS win, and even in quite spectacular fashion at the final.

Every player has a bad day, where they just don't time the ball well enough or move well enough. It's true that these days have been getting more frequent with Serena, but anyone ruling her out is being really foolish.

How can you be a tennis fan and not know that it's fucking grand slam? This is not gram staining for god's sake.
