if Serena could win one more major...

...which one would you like it to be?

1) Australian Open - further her Open Era title lead and establish herself as Queen of AO?

2) French Open - have two of every slam in her collection, and get a "5-4-3-2" (AO-Wim-USO-FO)?

3) Wimbledon - further her greatness here and tie her sister at 5 each?

4) US Open - another one on home turf under the lights, and getting to 9 hard court slams, tying Steffi Graf?

We're not talking about likelihood of her winning each, just if you could choose one...

Re: Serena fans...if Serena could win one more major...

For me, I'd choose French Open. Having two of each would put her in an ultra-select group.

I mean, if that were to happen, and she could only win one more.

Of course it would be better if she won more than just one.

Re: Serena fans...if Serena could win one more major...

I'm pretty confident she will win at least a couple more.

But I would pick the FO for obvious reasons.

Re: Serena fans...if Serena could win one more major...

French, she said her trophy 'feels lonely there and needs another one'!!!!

Actually, she should have won there in 03, 04 and 10...

Re: Serena fans...if Serena could win one more major...

Despite the intuitive attempt at selecting the posters who can post here with the title "Serena fans..." I can't resist to remind that majors aren't MMs and Rena's slam contention is far gone away when the glass off the ground sucked all the luck she had when winning these events in the past.

From reality... this was Vikapower... back to you delusion.
