If the Williams Sisters weren't tennis players- who would've won their slams?

I saw a thread like this a couple of years ago but I can't find it and Serena has won another slam since then....

Slams they've won:

Serena:
Australian Open 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010
Roland Garros 2002
Wimbledon 2002, 2003, 2009, 2010, 2012
US Open 1999, 2002, 2008

Venus:
Wimbledon 2000, 2001, 2005, 2007, 2008
US Open 2000, 2001


Discuss.

Interesting topic. A favourite discussion among Williams Fans in the past was who would've won which slams if the other sister had never been. Thank goodness for both.

Justine would have won Wimbledon 2007.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
