Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title at a Major again?

As she has successfully relaunched her comeback tour since learning about her illness, I can't help but to wonder if she will ever have the strength, composer and confidence to plow through a draw and hoist another singles trophy.

Her last singles championship at a Major was back in 2008 at Wimbledon.(4 Years Ago)
Her last singles championship on tour was back in 2010 at Abierto Mexico Telcel in Acapulco. (2 Years Ago)

Her Best showing at a Major recently was back in 2010 when she made the Semifinals at the US Open and lost to eventual champion Kim Clijsters.

Tier II or lower.

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: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

Can't see Venus winning a major, but she's still one of the better second-echelon players on the tour, so I would definitely give her a good chance of winning another title or two of some sort. If so, that could well be a tier 1 title, since not all tier 1 events are strongly contested by the top players. I wish her luck!

I definitely think she will. But I doubt if she can win a slam, but that's very much possible too at Wimbledon.

Maybe she could go out of her way and whore the Asian swing for a change. She'd definitely blow all those weak-ass pushers away. Vulturenus

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

I don't know. I'm sure she is able to win singles titles again (slams too), but I don't know the future. She's Venus Williams and she will be able to win titles. She has game, brain, experience, power and motivation.

Yeah, like Errani defeated anyone relevant when she won all those MM tournaments

Re: Will Venus Williams ever win a singles title again?

Its definitely possible, but I think she needs to play a bit more before I could say how likely and what "level". When she's ON, she could win anything - just not sure how often that will happen anymore, or how long it would last.

I think, depending on her post-Olympic schedule, she could win New Haven, Cincinnati etc. as her first title this year.

She'll probably win one of the US open series events if she plays a few over the summer. If not she can always play the MMs at the end of the year and try win Seoul again

For Dante, it follows then, that the only way to get into Hell is to insist upon it. One must deliberately exclude himself from grace by hardening his heart against it. Hell is what the damned have actively and insistently wished for.

The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds is fit for treasons, stratagems and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Shakespeare
