Which Grand Slam Maria can still win in 2008 ?

Well, she won the Australian Open and was defeated just once in a semi-final this year so i guess she has chances.

What do u guys think?

Re: Which Grand Slam Maria can still win in 2008 ?

Wimbledon and USO, but I think she won't win them. RG not this year. Remember it's one every two years.

Her best bet is the US Open because her game plan works well on those Deco-Turf courts. Wimbledon...maybe.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .
Justine Henin. Amelie Mauresmo. Francesca Schiavone.

There are three majors left, Pova has chances at each one of them.

USO 2009.

She probably has a good chance to win another slam this year but I don't feel it in my waters.

I didn't mention any cuz I believed she's a contender for every slam she enters and I honestly think its bullshit to quantitate her chances cuz she is hardly dominating nor inferior to any present top players.

Re: Which Grand Slam Maria can still win in 2008 ?

As long as she comes into majors with the form she had in Melbourne, she will be a real factor at 3 of the 4. This year, that's Wimbledon and the USO.
At RG, she needs a lot to go right. At the other 3, she can control a lot of what happens, if she's in her good form.
She'll be one of the favorites at 3 of 4 every year.

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

Re: Which Grand Slam Maria can still win in 2008 ?

She's a big favorite at US Open. Wimbledon of course, but players like Henin, Venus and Serena have an advantage over her there.

I wouldn't be surprised at her winning zero either.. I don't know how healthy she is and I don't know if she can regain her AO form.

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.
