Unfortunately no. There are a handful of better clay-courters than her.

Re: Will Venus win the French Open?

This is Venus' World ...

...until someone wins the Aussie and then it is their world...

...until someone wins in France...

...etc...

If your fave's coach isn't Richard Williams, that's just her first problem...

I was there when the ALL BLACKS won the World Cup in 2011!!!

No.Never. This is not her place. She will win Wimbledon 10 times though.

Re: Will Venus win the French Open?

No. She has only been past the QF stage once in 11 tries.

I'd love to be wrong though.

Don't get carried away there, supergrunt

I think she has it in her to win 1 Ao, 1 RG, and 1 more USO. Lots more Wimbledons though

I wouldnt say there are a handful....

I'd be shocked if she won it, but then again i'll be shocked by whoever wins it honestly. Without Justine around anyone with a good couple weeks of tennis could come through at the top.

Serena Williams
