When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

As a Maria fan, despite the injury and everything, I won't be truly satisfied until she wins the French, Miami and, perhaps, the Olympics. I know it's a lot to ask, but if she accomplishes those 3 titles, she'll have the whole DVD boxset. You know what I mean?

What about you? What will your favourite player have to do in order to make you truly satisfied with their career?

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

First of all, I'm very satisfied with Maria's career thus far, but hooking up with Gordon Gekko's "greed is good" style I'll say two more slams

I've gotten over Maria's clay demons and don't really think she'll win FO unless she gets a cakewalk draw somehow (then again losing to Dulko in Wimbledon makes all those predictions hogwash ), but if she wins US Open and Wimbledon one more time I'll go mad

Maria Sharapova: Mind Over Matter

TT: Winner - (Singles) Tashkent '12; ITF Macon '16, Stockton '16, Scottsdale '16 (Doubles) - (w/Broseghini) Cuneo 100k '10; (w/Peek-A-Boo) Contrexeville 50k '10; (w/JustPetko) Bucharest 75k '10, Nantes 50k '10, Marbella '11, Washington '11, Linz '11, Istanbul YEC '11, Opole 25K '11, Pattaya City '12, Tashkent '12, Pune 125k '12, Memphis '13, Carlsbad '13, Marrakech '14, Washington '14, Hong Kong 25k '16

A Singles Grand Slam Title and another year in the Top 10.

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

I will be satisfied simply if she plays another match.

As for Venus, I want 3 more Wimbledons and a US Open. And also to win the Doubles Grand Slam with Serena.

Serena can get to 15+ slams please. And ditto to Venus.

Maria K to make the top 15 at least and win a couple of premier titles, maybe even a premier 5.

Sorana top 5 please . Or at least top 8.

Jelena Dokic to make it back into the top 40. Maybe a WTA title.

Keothavong top 40 and at least one WTA title.

Cavaday top 50. Wimbledon R4.

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

Maria- If she wins either 3 more slams before the end of her career (if she plays it out fully), or if she were to fizzle away soon I'd only be okay with that if she won FO (which otherwise I don't care that much about).

Serena Williams: I'm going for team Sharapova 'coz she's hot
CAREER GRAND SLAM.

Bring on all the pretenders. Someday, WE WILL BE REMEMBERED

My fav is Barbie Zahlavova. I am already fully satisfied with the amount of screaming, whining, racquet throwing and complaining plus the amount of scrambling, pushing and drop shots she has achieved in her career. But I wouldnt mind some more of the same!

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

I'm already satisfied, but.. I'd be happy if:

Dokic enjoyed herself on the court, felt like a part of the tour again. Won another WTA title before her career finished.

Dementieva won a slam.

Golovin made a successful comeback to the Top 20, won another title or two.

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

When half of the members of this forum have committed suicide because Caro has won a slam.

Realistically, as long as she gives it a 100% I won't complain. Try to stay in the top 10, win a few tournaments and get to the last eight in the slams on most occasions. Anything more than that would be a huge bonus.

Im happy with Maria and what she has done so far. I would love for her to win the French Open.

I hope Vika can win a grand slam, and get the number one ranking. And I will be satisfied.

You're not asking too much to be satisfied.

Kim Clijsters: to win either the Aussie, the French or Wimbledon, make a new tournament in Belgium and she wins it a lot of times.

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

Venus to
-Win the YEC in Doubles and to get to #1 even just for a week in doubles
-Win Wimbledon and US Open Mixed.
-The Grand Slam in Doubles with Serena.
-Now what I really wanted for her was to win each slam one more time, but that's looking grim, so for me to be "satisfied" I'd love for Venus to hit double digits, preferably doing so by winning another USO.
-Continue to do her best at each event.

Oh, but I am already satisfied, so this will just make me happier.

Re: When will YOU be truly satisfied with what your fav player has achieved?

Serena - The angel on my left shoulder says, "When she wins the FO to round off her 2/per title count."
However, the devil on my right shoulder says, "F**k the French! One's enough in that dust bowl. She only needs another Wimbledon and US Open to make me complely happy."

Venus - When she becomes chairman and CEO of the WTA.
