Pony Up: How Many Slams for the Williams in 2009?

The Williams' outlook at the opening of this '09 tennis season is as bullish as it has been at any time in the past 5 years. Lay down your predictions people.

Aussie open is not the best surface for Venus.

Re: Pony Up: How Many Slams for the Williams in 2009?

Well lets look historically

1999: 1
2000: 2
2001: 2
2002: 3
2003: 2
2004: 0
2005: 2
2006: 0
2007: 2
2008: 2

They've collectively won 2 or more majors 7/10 years. In 2006 neither played a full schedule and in 2004 they were coming off injury.

Provided they play ~13/14 tournaments which indicates relative health I'd be surprised if they bucked this trend.

I'm saying zero - even tho I'm not superstitious lol

One thing I think still rings true - injury free & focused, these girls should win 3 slams minimum.

I predict the Williams Sisters are going to win everything. 4 GS, Indian Wells, Miami, Beijing, Madrid and YEC.

They'll win 3 of them, only being shut out of the French Open title
