Serena is not that young anymore, but with her determination, she seems unstoppable just like her old days.

Will she broke Steffi's record?

I personally say YES.

Is there any chance? Yes there is.
Will it happen? I don't think so.

She would have to continue winning Grand Slams year after year. This season she won one out of three. She will most probably win two out of three. Do the math, if she continues winning two out of four every year how old will she be when she completes this task?

People are seriously pouring so much petrol into her bandwagon. Like they did before FO...and USO 2011...

good point, would require another 4 years of winning an average of 2 slams a season to move past graf's 22 (assuming she wins the open), not impossible of course, but given serena has never won more than 6 slams in a four year period it seems unlikely

oh, and graf doesn't have there slam singles record, court does

AO might have been irrelevant in the 60s, but still Court holds the record.

How many Slams did Steffi win? Serena has 14, right?

Margaret Court has the record number of Singles Grand Slams with 24. She also has the record for the most Grand Slam titles (singles, doubles and mixed) with 62. I think.

It doesn't matter whether Serena will break that record or not. She's the best player of her generation and she did it without the help of a knife. That's all it matters.

She's also a part of the best doubles team of her generation. You can't ask for more than that.

with or without a knife, Steffi still got more slams than Serena, so i really can't see your point.
that's a different story if Seles got more slams than Serena.

Of course it matters unless if you choose to be blind. Roger Federer has more slams than Rod Laver but Laver didn't play in a lot of slams because he turned professional and couldn't. And Laver won 4 in a row twice, Roger couldn't even win 4 in a row once. Only those who choose to remain ignorant and only look at numbers will think it doesn't matter.

And Court's Australian Championships are actually underrated and written off too easily by people considering that she was the dominant player of her era even if not counting Australians. Put this way, she still has more French, Wimbledon and US titles than her closest rival in BJK.

I'm not in awe of Graf's slam at all. She won the vast majority of her slams before Seles turned professional and when Evert/Navratilova were over the hill and after Seles got stabbed. They are meaningless.

Graf leads Seles in their H2H before she got stabbed


Inspiration is for amateurs

And yet Seles won 4 out of the last 7, despite being 4 and a half years younger.

No way. Graf won't be touched (from any other than Agassi that is )

NO, 22 GS is too much. she would need to win 8 more
Her best bet is catching Martina Nav with 18 GS, even this is a tall order because of her age.

Your poll m should have included an nother option: "No, from fans"
