If Myskina can do it why cant Jelena :weirdo:

Jelena works harder then Myskina, Jelena has consistent results her best bet to win one if the French or the Open.

To be honest, 2004 was a really weird year on the tour- WS playing like crap, the Belgians injured.

Ofcourse she can win a slam. She still has room to improve, and with a good draw, she's the one to do it.

I think Jelena can. I just don't think Myskina is a valid comparison. With Justine out, the FO is wide open and Justine was knocked out early that year.

She's 23- at some point soon, her learning curve is going to flatten out.

She's 22. About the right moment to take her game to a next level. She's already done so since last year, and there's still room to improve. Many players also continued improving late in their career.

Actually why not compare Myskina to Jelena.

Myskina wasnt a favorite for the FO she was a contender Jelena will be a contender for each slam.

French Open for Jankovic...but she'd need help from Tonya Harding to injure Justine...

No idea if she will win a slam, but I think she can obviously. The age thing is a factor but she started playing later than most girls so that's why it's that way. It definitely shortens her window.

I figure if she was somewhat close to beating Justine and making the final last year, that may indicate good things for the future, but there's still things she needs to put work into imo before she wins one. That's the big question.

Myskina was lucky........very lucky.

she has the game but she can't keep it up mentally against henin.
i would imagine an in form serena would thrash janko as well.
but she can fight against venus, ivanovic, kuznetsova, and sharapova.

If Sveta, Majoli, Conchita, Clijsters, Arantxa can win, of course Jelena can, with luck

No she cannot.

Because unlike in 2004, Serena, Venus, and Justine are either a.) healthy b.) playing c.) not playing like shit.

All she needs is the mental aspect and a better serve. Anyone who disagrees is seriously delusional.

People don't seem to understand that age and developmental stage don't always go hand in hand.

Jelena has only been playing fantastic tennis for a year, and has had a few decent seasons before that. She still has a few more solid years of improvement before she reaches her peak, and she also has more than one slam in her.

Henin can't win Wimbledon, Williams sisters are just as likely to win as they are not turn up at all, and Jelena is capable of beating Sharapova.

myskina's backhand was just:drool: when she was on fire. and her forehand looks much better to me than jankovic'...
We'll see if jelena can win a slam or not.
