Which Will Happen?

With all that's gone on this year, there are a LOT of interesting story lines that are taking shape for the next 5-6 years. Some interesting questions that have arisen:

- Can Serena win the Double Slam ( winning each major title 2 times)?
- Can Venus win a slam in the first 1/2 of the year?
- Can Venus surpass Martina's record of 9 Wimbledon titles?
- Can Maria win the Career Grand/Golden Slam?
- Can J/Elena win a major?
- Can China produce a major champion?

Can any/all of these happen?
(vote for all of those you think can/will happen)

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Serena.

Re: Which Will Happen?

In my humble opinion...

- Can Serena win the Double Slam ( winning each major title 2 times)? No, I don't think she'll ever win the French again.
- Can Venus win a slam in the first 1/2 of the year? Possibly, but I doubt it.
- Can Venus surpass Martina's record of 9 Wimbledon titles? No, I don't think so. She'll need to win it 3 more times, which I don't see happening. (1 or maybe 2 more could happen)
- Can Maria win the Career Grand/Golden Slam? No
- Can J/Elena win a major? Yes and yes
- Can China produce a major champion? Don't see why not.

Re: Which Will Happen?

- Can Serena win the Double Slam ( winning each major title 2 times)? She has a couple of years to do that but I don't think she will.
- Can Venus win a slam in the first 1/2 of the year? Australian Open maybe.
- Can Venus surpass Martina's record of 9 Wimbledon titles? No. She's no Martina.
- Can Maria win the Career Grand/Golden Slam?Yes, blessed with a good draw.
- Can J/Elena win a major? No. Unless she fixes her serve and mental.
- Can China produce a major champion? So far I don't see anyone who can really be a real threat for the slams.

Re: Which Will Happen?

You should have organized this multiple poll differently. As it is, there is no difference between not voting, and voting by providing answer NO to any of the polled questions.

You should have given for each question more than one answer option.

Re: Which Will Happen?

I think Maria can win the French if she improves on the clay.

Hopefully Jelena will win a slam. Sure she will soon.

Re: Which Will Happen?

- Can Serena win the Double Slam ( winning each major title 2 times)? Hmmm, no I don't think she can.
- Can Venus win a slam in the first 1/2 of the year? Yes, she should have done it already this year. Melbourne should have belonged to her.
- Can Venus surpass Martina's record of 9 Wimbledon titles? No, she won't win five more Wimbledons, her body will start to break down.
- Can Maria win the Career Grand/Golden Slam? Yes, definitely. Especially as the clay-court specialist dies.
- Can J/Elena win a major? Jelena, yes. Elena, no.
- Can China produce a major champion? Definitely not. Three years ago I would have said yes yes yes, but a certain double-handed headcase decided not to work hard to pursue her talent and now struggles to win matches.

Re: Which Will Happen?

- Can Serena win the Double Slam ( winning each major title 2 times)? With Henin gone anyone can win in Paris. But Serena really disappointed this year so I think she'll be even more determined in 2009.
- Can Venus win a slam in the first 1/2 of the year? Don't see it happening. There will always be someone to catch her out in Australia, and there's always a better claycourter in France.
- Can Venus surpass Martina's record of 9 Wimbledon titles? Certainly possible the way she's going but I don't see her winning it another five times.
- Can Maria win the Career Grand/Golden Slam?
- Can J/Elena win a major? They both have good shots. Jelena needs to stop getting injured in semis. Elena's performances this year at slams has restored my faith that she can win one. She had a huge chance in Paris and let it go but bounced back to make SF at Wimbledon.
- Can China produce a major champion? Zheng, Li, Yan etc. will not win singles slams, but in the future? why not.
