Graf is out of question.
Mauresmo, She is already there.. almost
I'd say Davenport or Venus. Something like 5 majors, 40 + titles.

At this minute in time, Sharapova's achievements are pretty similar to Mauresmo's. Both Amelie and Maria have:
- Won 2 grand slam titles (one of them at Wimbledon)
- Lost in one grand slam final (at the Australian Open)
- Have won one YEC title
- Have reached 2 quarter-finals at the French Open but have never gone further than that in the tournament
- Have both got to no. 1 at a time when perhaps they didn't deserve it (Mauresmo in 2004, Sharapova in 2005).

However Maria is still very young and has plenty of time to achieve a lot more. I would expect her career achievements to resemble Venus's.

She'll have the career Lindsay should have had, loads of titles, many weeks at #1, except 5-6 Slams instead of 3

who knows, she's so much younger than all of them ya know? but i'd say she'll end up with 8 slams

I think if she stays healthy she will win somewhere between 30-40 career titles maybe even 50 if her career is long and around 5-8 Grand Slams.

It really depends on how much she improves her serve and fitness.

If she does improve, 5 slams for her, maybe 6 or 7. :D

If she doesn't... well I hope she does improve!

I would only be so lucky if it were anywhere close to Graf, but in all probability probably closer to Venus...give or take a GS :sad:
She already has 2 GS and 15 singles titles so idk why Mauresmo is in second place...

Maria will retire with 5+ majors. So probably around Venus' area, possibly Serena. And I'm sure shell have more career titles than both.

WOW a lot of people here have VERY high hopes for Maria. Over 50 titles??? She'll probably retire young since she started young, there's no way she could get up there. As for slams, she only wins the ones when everyone else is off their game (at least that's what she's shown so far), so 8 slams...well on THAT premise it might actually be possible unfortunately.

mankind
Apr 24th, 2007, 08:15 AM
I'm saying Capriati level, even though she will win more titles, but probaby around 3 slams.

Shimizu Amon
Apr 24th, 2007, 10:08 AM
I think that Masha has the best shot at a similar career as Venus title wise.

Actually at the US Open she was unbeatable. That last part of 2006 she got beaten once, by Henin, and she was pretty much untouchable until the YEC.

I think she stands a good chance of winning 10 + Slams. Assuming she retires at 28 or so, that's roughly one a year. Given that she will probably suffer some injuries and is only a serious contender at 3/4 of the Slams, I would predict about 7-8 in total but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if she ended up with anything up to 12.

Probably 5 slams, although Venus might still win more, so I think she will still end up a level above Sharapova.

I don't think Maria will have a really long career like Davenport, she had success so early that by her late 20s I can see a burn out or just wane of interest.

she wasnt exactly unbeatable, even golovin took her to two tie breaks, but she was tough and deserved to win against justine.

she wasnt untouchable either during the autumn, until the YEC she didnt have one easy match at all, she had really close matches with ivanovic and peer and even old patty, but she was playing consistent+tough tennis and won two more tournaments, but she was outclassed by Justine at the YEC.

Maria plays consistent and is very tough to beat, but as of yet ive never seen her hit a run of form where she is 'untouchale' like the way you could say about other players like Venus in summer 2000/2001, serena in 2002 or lindsay in summer 2004, at those points they were pretty untouchable and players were going on court feeling like they were almost beat already, it wasnt exactly like that for Maria last fall+she certainly hasnt done much to chang ethat since.

on that note, i think she'll probably have a similar career to mauresmo's, only with similar titles and slam counts to Venus(although i bet Venus will rack up a few more), however the fashion she will do it in will be similar to Mauresmo, in that, in her best years she will win 4 or 5 titles and get to lots of semi's and runners up+picking up a couple more slams along the way, consistently deep at Wimbledon but not making it past the quarters at the french.

I cant see Sharapova having years the way like, Lindsay, Venus, Serena and Justine have had in the past where they have won 7++ titles and went on big untouchable streaks, shes really consistent, but ive never seen her game catch fire for an extended period like i have with those other players.

:tape: :o

Like Venus, Maria will win most of her slams on grass and hard. She has the game for the surfaces and it's the 2 biggest media markets. You better believe she will win a few more.

Unlike Venus, I think she will win a few AO's. She went all the way to the final with a shitty serve, noone was able to take her out:lol: ....until Serena.

Honestly, I don't see anyone in her generation winning multiple slams.:shrug:

In terms of slams, Venus (about 6 I think) and in terms of other titles Davenport. :)

she's only 20, I think she will end up somewhere between Venus and Serena, and I seriously doubt that there will be another like Steffi, she's one of a kind

A lot will depend on how good the upcoming youngsters will turn out to be in the future, but I think that under the best possible scenario for her she will end up at Venus' level of achievement. Having said that, Venus herself still has a lot of tennis in her and her resume may become even more impressive in the future than it already is.
