Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

Vika now has 2 out of the last 3. And she's still young. She's going to be the 5th slam queen

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

She still has time

Venus won Miami twice before winning her first slam

Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

And?

But you could say she´s not in the same league as the former champs ( Hingis, Williams sisters, Sveta, Kimberly etc.)



Ivanovic - Görges - Agnieszka - Li - Bencic

Venus - Kvitova - Golden Flowers - A.K. Schmiedlova - Stephens - Stosur - Woz

Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

So what has it got to do with anything? She definitely has potential to win a slam in the future...

Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

Given the current state of the WTA tour compared to a few years ago, stats like these are irrelevant. Azarenka is a decent player with a few limitations in her game and for whom a Slam is not completely unreachable. And she's only 21. Too early for threads like this.

Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

these are the champions who have won miami more than once:

Graf, Serena, Venus, Clijsters, Hingis, Azarenka

p.s. i'm not slamming Azarenka just pointing out that if she doesn't win a slam it'll be a big shock.

Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

We're speaking about a 21 not even 22yr. old who has just won Miami 2 times... Vika has enourmous time for her... there's no need to rush things...

Génie - Victoria - Kristina.

Yes. Agreed. Step by step and slowly and you'll soon achieve the results you want...I truly believe Vika is able to win a slam in the future...she has great potential...except if she always retires from matches then it might have a bit of a problem...

Re: Every single Miami champion has won a slam

Vika's attitude has completely changed this year. That was the biggest thing holding her back.

She will have a chance at the French if she holds this form.
