At least four more Grand Slam titles in singles.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Sam Smith on Hlavackova

I think 18 is largely possible , with 2 per year for 3 years .

Re: How many grand slam titles will Serena end up with when she retires?

I've always thought she'd have about 16; but I always thought some other great players would come along to challenge her...right now I think if she focuses on the Slams and plays her best at each one, she has to be the favorite over everyone on every surface (other than Justine on Clay). 18 is a reasonable goal; I think she's definitely going to win at least 16.

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!!!

Re: How many grand slam titles will Serena end up with when she retires?

I think barring injury or total loss of focus, she should end up with around 16 majors..and then it depends how long she wanna play.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

As many as she wants to when she sets her mind to it. It's all up to Serena.

Re: How many grand slam titles will Serena end up with when she retires?

Hopefully about 3 or 4 more. However, she is 29 years old right now. She has nothing more to PROVE. Unless she devotes all her time to tennis,it is going to be tough beating the younger players who are devoting all their time to tennis.

I hope she RETIRES after this season. Go out a super winner, a legend, and if not the best, at least one of the best woman tennis players of all time.

I'm pretty sure she wants a gold medal in singles really badly. She's not leaving before 2012.
