Maria's career slam count will be?

The way Maria has recovered her form of late it seems more slam titles are possible. The question though is how many. She currently sits at 3. Will she reach 4, 5, 6, never win another and stay at 3, even go beyond 6. What would your current prediction be.

4.

I think she will get another one. Let's hope it will be the one that completes the Career Slam.

Re: Maria's career slam count will be?

I voted 5. Anything from 4-6 wouldnt surprise me. I think it will be another U.S Open and another Wimbledon. I dont think the French is happening, this year was her best shot by far. Then again there dont seem to be any dominant clay courters emerging so who knows.

Re: Maria's career slam count will be?

If she plays 3 more years she can get 2 for sure, even 3 but I'd bet on 2 more Hopefully one FO!! But I'd be happy with every other lol

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Re: Maria's career slam count will be?

4 IMO she'll win one more at one point of her career

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Re: Maria's career slam count will be?

I would say 5 is about right, 1 more US Open and 1 more Wimbledon

I'd be happy with 4. But she'll be a contender at all four for years to come, so let's see what happens.

Yup.

But, though I'm expecting her serve to improve to a respectable level, unless it improves to the force it was in the early days, I actually think the FO is more likely than Wimbledon.

Re: Maria's career slam count will be?

One more...unless she gets her serve under control...then she can win a few more....

It is so sad she had to f*uck up her shoulder...because she could of been in the 5-8 slam range.
