Unretire would be great.

Maria.
1)Finish this year, or in the next couple of years as YE #1
2)Try to win 3 more Slams.
3)Defend a Slam Title
4)Win Miami, only thing she hasn't got.
5)Manage to produce AO 2008 form on a consistent basis. I know this isn't an overnight thing, but the thread is for the next few years right?

Yuryevna,
Always

Re: 5 realistic things you would like your favourite player to achieve in next few y

Sharapova
- 2 more slams, hopefully one at Wimbledon and one at AO but any will do
- 1 more YEC
- 1 year end no. 1
- win Miami
- Continue to improve and dominate the clay season

Dokic
- start playing regularly again

Goerges
- find some consistency
- crack the top 10
- make QF of slams

Lisicki
- crack the top 10
- win Wimbledon
- improve her 2nd serve to make it a weapon

Venus
- win 1 US Open doubles title
- win 1 RG doubles title
- win 1 Wimbledon mixed doubles
- win 1 USO mixed doubles
so basically completing the career golden slam in doubles 3 times, and completing the career slam in mixed doubles

as for singles, as much as I love seeing her play, I don't want to see her bombing out to players she souldn't lose to anymore. it's just too sad. Just focus on doubles gurl
