Monica has said she gives herself to the end of 2006 before making her decision. Even though you're probably right some of us cling to thinnest threads of hope!

Why do you come up with this thread now?

Those list was already a fact during the AO 2004. Then Henin joined those players on the list

Wouldn't winning all four be a sign of greatness a la Serena Williams?

I agree, it's not like reaching the slam final in all 4 slams is any sort of accomplishment, come on, even Nadal could have 2 different finals already by the end of the day.

Justine's record at the USO apart frm the yr she won it is average tho, it will be tough for her to do esp since i think alot of ppl will be gunning for her if she wins Wimbledon cause she will be the player to beat

Sry but that's an accomplishment. Reaching RG final and a month later the Wimby final. Not many players that can do that, or am I wrong?

People in here see to find that everything is normal :rolleyes:
