2010 Project for Serena?

Do you think that Serena should try and attempt to have the career slam in mixed doubles? She's won Wimbledon and the U.S Open in 1998 and has reached the finals of Australia and Roland Garros. She would be the first player since Martina Nav to have the career slam in all 3 events. And to my knowledge, I think the only other player to do this is Margaret Smith Court.

What do you think?

And here you are, a black unicorn.

Re: 2010 Project for Serena?

Both the sisters should try winning the Mixed doubles slams that they are lacking. Would be nice to have a boxed set.

Actually, if you combine both Venus and Serena's mixed doubles titles, they would have all of them

Venus ~ Serena ~ Nadal

Re: 2010 Project for Serena?

I would love to see her try and do it next year.

But I see this as something she will do when she's about done with tennis. Which is cool too.

Not next year, while she's at the top of the game she should concentrate on singles.

Not happening yet..only when she's not an elite singles player anymore.

Always bet on black!

I would love to see her and Roddick team up. That would be fun.

Do it later when she's declining in singles.

Re: 2010 Project for Serena?

I think Navratilova completed a grand slam in everything 3 years ago, hasn't she


serena won't play mixed next year, don't see this happen at all...especially not at the 2 slams which are more physical than the other ones

It would be fun to watch certainly. Serena's accomplished all there is in ladies doubles so outside of practice there's no reason for her to continue with that.

Really? What year did Serena win the Grand Slam in doubles? When did she break the all-time record for doubles majors? I can't believe I missed all that.

Re: 2010 Project for Serena?

Navratilova completed the Boxed Set in 2003 with the AO mixed.

Serena has been into all 12 finals just lost the AO and RG mixed finals. I have always wanted her to go after it, I think it'd be a great thing to see someone accomplish. But if she has ambitions to do it I hope she starts soon, can't just expect to show up one year and win them both. I wonder if she'd play with Mirnyi again, or Blake, Fish?

She's won all the Grand Slams yes. Still gotta get that no.1 and I don't believe she's ever qualified for a YEC let alone win one.

Really. She has all the slam titles in doubles at least once. Conversely if this is the case about the 'Grand slam', Serena then needs to keep on playing tennis, even into her old, old, old age perhaps past Navy age until she gets the grand slam in singles and breaks the all-time record for singles. She only needs the French/Australian in mixed, that would be great and I hope she gets it. She can start next year
