How many tournaments will VENUS win in 2002?

Since VENUS has vowed to play more tournaments in 2002 and she already has two victories and is poised for her third win, I wonder how many titles this talented player can acquire in 2002.



VENUS could win 6-8 events this year, but at her current pace and especially if Dubai is her fourth title, we may see the future #1 player win 10-12 titles including at least one Grand Slam trophy along the way.

Injuries seem to be a bigger obstacle than most of her opponets, so if VENUS can be reletively injury free this year, then the title count may be an all time annual high for the Goddess of Tennis.

I hope so TeeRexx, I'm praying that Vee stay healthy and play the 15 tournaments she vowed she will play this year! If she can win 6 playing 12 tournaments, why not 10 playing 15!

I think the same she can win more than 6, but what i want this year for Venus, more even than #1 spot, is to win the rest slams of the year RG W and US.

That would be very nice

Thumbs up

First and foremost, I'd like her to be HEALTHY this year... I won't predict since ya never know with Venus heehee... Anyway, it would be wonderful if she won more than 6, because she's ended the year 3rd and won 6 in 1999, 2000 and 2001 :P

I was thinking about this after she won the Open de Gaz. I feel she can win at least 10 titles. It would not surprise me if she hits 12-14.

Unbelievably, 15 of 15

Hopefully, 11-14 of 15

Realistically, 8-10 of 15

All of these includes at least 1 slam

Dammitt, Venus!!!

QUEENLINDSAY, why are you so obsessed with Venus? almost every posts of yours concerns Venus and are always negative. are you still peeved off that Venus had defeated Lindsay to win the 2000 Wimbledon and 2000 US Open or that Lindsay hasn't defeated Venus in quite some time? (sorry, had to go there )

Don't worry CanIGetAWhat!! I think maybe QueenLindsay is a little frustrated because of how Venus played against Lindsay in 2001. Oh, QueenLindsay you forgot to add a couple more tournaments which can bump it up to 6 or 7 with no slams. Sounds like the record last year of your favorite player. With that being said, I hope Lindsay wins a slam this year.

I wish she could win them all, EXCEPT Wimby, because I want Serena to win that one.

It depend on injuries, but Id say 5-6 including Wimbledon.

I think Venus, Martina and Jen will have a real battle for the number one spot and will dominate the tour this year. It should be a cracker!
