Azarenka will have atleast 5 AO.
Sharapova will have no more.
Kvitova will have atleast 5 Wimbledon.
Wozniacki will have no more.

I think Petra will end up with atleast 6. I dont see Maria ending up with anymore than 5 at this point. Azarenka I see ending up with something in the 3-5 range, just like Maria. Wozniacki I see ending with 0, although she might sneak in a lucky 1 sometime (highly doubt at, especialy as her time as a top player seems to be nearing an end).

Probably Kvitova. Caro will win 2-4. Sharapova has won her last slam. Vika is the dark horse. She's very strong right now but she doesn't seem like someone who can keep playing well for a long stretch.

JJ all the way

I'm probably high saying this but my bet is on Sharpie :) and then Kvitty.....

I don't know for some reason I think Masha will end up with 5, if Petra manages to improve her outdoor hardcourt results in the next couple of years I would definately say her. Vika it depends on when she hits form, like when she hit GOAT form in Miami last year and won what 3? tournies in a row also making final of Madrid and Rome SF, retiring injured. She just came off the boil at RG. However, considering very few players are ready to pounce from the beginning of the season, with Vika being on of them I can see her winning another couple of AO titles.

Kvitova can win heaps more and I voted for her. Jury's still out on Azarenka. She's doing well so far but I can't see her getting hot for two weeks more often than Petra.

Masha...*sigh*. No fucking idea what the future holds for her. She's made two final in the last three slams but hasn't really showed up. I'm starting to doubt if she still has that final push in her :o. Still things are better than say her AO '11 where after she lost to Petkovic playing so awfully I thought that things were really completely hopeless.

Obviously Caro will finish with the least amount of the group.

Stonerpova
Feb 21st, 2012, 04:39 AM
Kvitova. I think she'll win 7 or so. Azarenka will win 4 or 5. I'm sure Wozniacki will win at least 1 down the road somewhere.

Maria, just one more. Please and thank you.

LUVMIRZA
Feb 21st, 2012, 04:58 AM
Azarenka is the most consistent one and plays with the right balance of aggression and defense. She'll win more GSs than everybody else on this list:worship:

Temperenka

It all depends on how Petra continues to develop as a player. In two years, we could easily be looking back saying "Wow, what happened to Kvitova?"

She could easily win 8-9 in her career, but I'm not sure she has it in her yet.

Safest bet is Vika who I think will end up with about 5.

I will be surprised if Maria wins more than 1 more. And I don't think Caroline will get more than 1 in her career.

Vika 7 (3 AO, 1 RG, 3 US)
Maria 3 (1 AO, 1 WI, 1 US)
Petra 10 (2 AO, 2 RG, 5 WI, 1 US)
Caro 1 (1 US) :oh:

I'm thinking that Petra will win a few more Wimbledons, and she will probably sneak in a French and and AO as well, but I could easily see her slams being spread out over a few years because she's not quite consistent enough to completely dominate a season as a package.

I think Vika will win several more Australian Opens - she really seems to be one of the freshest, most hungry players every year at the start of the season, and I think the Aussie courts are perfect for her game. I also expect her to win a FO at some time in her career unless some clay-GOAT arises that will dominate Paris (though at this point it seems unlikely), because that slam is just too wide open for her to not be able to snag one at some point if she's in good enough form.

With Caro, I definitely see her winning a USO or two down the line, but it might be a few years down the line still... But honestly I don't see her grabbing one at the other three unless the draw really falls apart. And I mean REALLY falls apart... like facing Cornet, Wozniak, Pennetta, Aga, and whoever else are her 'bitches' and having the majority of her opposition have off days. Clay and grass just don't suit her well at all.

And then there's Maria... I honestly have no idea what to expect, but at this point I'm not going to start throwing out assurance that another slam is just around the corner, as her past two final efforts have been collectively dire.

Andddd having said that, I think Petra will have the most, then Vika, then Maria, and then Caro.

justineheninfan
Feb 21st, 2012, 04:02 PM
The easy calls are Kvitova winning the most and Wozniacki the least (probably none). The tough choice is who will end up with more between Sharapova and Azarenka.

I bet the answer to this question is a lot more surprising than any of us would imagine. Those who are just thinking Azarenka will OBVIOUSLY end her career with at least five majors are stupid as fuck. Sharapova, who was a lot more infinitely talented than Azarenka was and ever will be, was thought to have more than three majors in her. Look where she is now. Azarenka is no different, and definitely no better.

I would guess Kvitova, but maybe she'll get injured or suck or something. Nothing surprises me anymore with major champions.

justineheninfan
Feb 21st, 2012, 04:17 PM
Vika 7 (3 AO, 1 RG, 3 US)
Maria 3 (1 AO, 1 WI, 1 US)
Petra 10 (2 AO, 2 RG, 5 WI, 1 US)
Caro 1 (1 US) :oh:

Wow that would be 16 future slams to this group. I guess that could happen though.

AO - Azarenka's territory
RG - Sharapova's territory?
Wim - Kvitova's habitat
USO - Wozniacki's best chance to sneak out a major?

StoneRose
Feb 21st, 2012, 05:49 PM
Very hard to say atm. Probably Vika. Petra is so inconsistent that she may not reach the final some times, if she gets there she has a fair chance to win it but have to wait and see how the H2H with Vika develops. Maria has played some finals lately but hasn't really come close to winning one. Don't see that changing much especially if she meets Vika, that's a bad match up and going to stay that way. Caro at this point in her career? No way.

Of course other players could emerge or Maria might really step it up to be the winner after all.

Voted for Vika, but anyone of these players can even out on top level and win more than others. For some reason my gut says Petra is not going to be around for very long. I have a feeling that her priorities are going to shift elsewhere.

Feb 21st, 2012, 06:17 PM
This is a really tough call. Azarenka and and Kvitova seem to have an upside to their major haul. It will be interesting to see how many they sneak away with.

Sharapova may be on the downside of her career, but I wouldn't tell her that. She's still relatively young and as hungry as ever. If she can claw her way through matches and finally produce some of the magic she once had in finals, I have little doubt she'll win another major. I'd love for it to be in Paris.

justineheninfan
Feb 21st, 2012, 06:25 PM
At this point I give Maria about as much chance to win a French Open as IMO Henin had of winning a Wimbledon, Seles would have had of winning a Wimbledon if she werent stabbed, and as Venus had of winning a French Open from 98-2004. Which IMO would be 35% roughly, so not terrible odds but less than even. If she does somehow win the French she could well win alot more slams though as in theory that should still be her weakest surface.

I agree. Many thought in 2004 that Maria was going to be the new Seles.

The way things are now careers could be 3 or 4 slams tops.

As you say I think there are a lot of surprises down the line.

short version: Azarenka > Kvitova > Wozniacki = Sharapova

Their competition doesnt look too scary. Old guards wont be here too long. Kim, Serena, Venus, Na, Fran, Stosur, etc wont be younger. Youngsters might wont be that promosing either, current 18-20yo generation especially. The rest of Generation Suck & Co. already long behind them, IMO Radwanska, Lisicki or Pavlyuchenkova can trouble them couple times.
But so many shit and surprise can happen, this is just speculation seeing current trends.


Azarenka has two very useful skillt. Killing scrubs is 80% of slams, and she does it exceptionally well. Kvitova can struggle against CSN, Errani or Dulgheru, but with Azarenka you barely see it. Lethal bighitters can trouble her, although there are not many and the chance they play GOAT against her is even less. Her other skill is dealing with GOOD players when they are not at their best or limited somehow (aka one-dimensional). See against Sharapova, Radwanska or Stosur. This 2 skills alone can win her 5-6 matches every slam without making anything complicated. Of course this is only true if she can keep up her form long time.
Winning her 2nd slam this year can be important, stopping the "one slam wonder" talks even before it hits her. Biggest chance always AO, then RG and USO. She can do Wimbledon too, but that seriously depends on Kvitova will block her road or not. That means I can see 2 slams/year in next 4-6 years.

Kvitova, same old story, can win anything and lose anytime. The only worrying is she looks the most injury prone of them. I do expect some rhapsodical career path, with many low and ups. 6-8 Slams definitely, mostly in Wimby but can win all.

Wozniacki had the lead a year ago, now in trouble. If she cant get her shit together and fill the holes in her game and mentality, sheŽll drop way behind these two and will only chewing on the possible leftover. Even if goes back to her 2010 end-2011 first half level, might wont takes more than 2-4 slams. And there are questions, how her body can hold up, possible burn out, etc.

Sharapova... sadly, ends with 3. If she could win, she shouldŽve already done it and not losing to first time slam finalists so easily. Her game, her consistency, her body breaks down too easily to challenge the rest of top players enough time. 1-2 nice wins can happen all the time or having cakewalks, but thats might not enough.

Of all the slams RG is the most open in my view, and has been since Justine retired prematurely. I agree with your % chance for Maria to win it.

based on talent alone, petra. but the girl is so damn inconsistent, she makes it so hard to bet on her.
on the other hand, i see this vika as a lock-in for multiple majors, especially considering half are played on hardcourts.
i would never count maria out, but i also won't ever consider her my favorite for any major anymore.
caro is irrelevant. imo, her days in top 4 are numbered.

When we bump this thread up after 10 years, some of the predictions may look extremely funny. It's perfectly possible that only one of these players will win more than 5 slams. A possible scenario is that Serena will win 2-3 more slams, Stosur, Clijsters and Li-Na will each win one more, players like Petkovic, Kerber, Lisicki will win a US Open, Kuznetsova/Ivanovic may win an additional RG title and several more young players may emerge to snare the trophies away from the girls in the poll.

BTW, I like the poll result, as it shows who is considered as the real No. 1 (besides Serena) :devil:

But seriously, why would you expect Caro to win a slam, ever? Nothing short of miracle will save her from falling put of top 4, which is where players get "lucky" draws. Being out of top 4 means she'll be meeting someone from top 4 (or an in-form player who managed to beat a top 4 player) from quarterfinals onwards and she hasn't shown she's capable of beating 3 quality opponents in a row since in a loooong time.:rolleyes:

Why are you shocked? Kvitova, Azarenka and Sharapova right now are the best players and very soon the part-timers will be retired with no one from Gen Wack or earlier even giving a hint that they're a threat or that they have the potential to become one. The four slams every year are pretty much going to be divided between these three players IMO. The recent maiden slam winners are mostly veterans that hit a purple patch in their career and have pretty much failed to do anything of note afterward.

Her performance over the last 8-9 months positions her firmly as a #8-#10 player, not higher. And there's no signs of her game improving one bit.

I'd say predicting someone is bound to win 2-4 majors is a much stronger prediction than stating that the same player will win no majors at all, given the probability of giving any random player winning 2+ Slams.

The only factors we can include in those predictions is how high we estimate the player's raw talent and the prospects of building her game on top of that talent. I'd say Caro's anticipation is second to none, but she's not as good in other aspects and other players seem to have figured out how to exploit them when they play against her - of course Caro's game has undergone a lot more scrutiny than normal thanks to her prolonged #1 ranking, which doesn't help at all (in comparison - I think most players just knew Stosur as "the one with the weak backhand" and didn't pay as much attention to her as a threat deeper in the tournament and a potential GS champion).

Yes she did, and that's a good point, BUT we should adapt this situation hypothetically to Wozniacki. Wozniacki's worst surface is clay so here goes.

Rome final: Serena Williams def. Caroline Wozniacki 6-4 6-2. A couple of weeks later they both unexpectedly meet again in the final of RG, Woz struggled through epic three-setters against Petrova, Kirilenko and Kerber to get to the final. Serena didn't drop a set en route.
RG final: Caroline Wozniacki def. Serena Williams 6-2 6-3. All the drama included.

Now, do you think Wozniacki would have taken matters into her own hands like this on her worst surface (clay) where she has basically no track record of beating top players, let alone in a slam final against Serena Williams? Yes Stosur's run was completely random but Wozniacki couldn't have pulled it off in the final against Williams like Stosur did IMO.

true IŽll give that. But making it a dumb yes or no question isnt better either.
Winning two with a 5 year break is a lot? Dont think so.
The 4, is kinda like a best case scenario, maybe I should have word better.

there was a thread here years ago, "which russian will end 2008 as highest?" or something and Safina wasnt even among the poll option. Guess what happened. TF and Fail walks hand in hand. :spit:

Petra will have the most overall:
Many more Wimbledons + AO

Vika will win more AO + USO

Hopefully Masha can reach 5 or get a career grand slam :cheer:

I don't know, it's still too early to tell. I think Masha and Vika can have a great AO rivalry potentially, and Masha vs Petra could be a great potential Wimbledon rivalry. It's still too early to tell, if Masha can win one this year then she could win multiple more. For her to win the USO again though she'd need as many night matches as possible and a windless Arthur Ashe (not happening).

Petra atm looks likely to have a Pierce/Davenport Slam count. However it is her sophomore season, so I think she still has a few Wimbledon's in her. She could also win the AO and RG later in her career. Not sure about USO, although again it's still hard to tell at this stage whether this US hardcourt thing is an actual 'thing' or whether it's just due to her post-slam slump last year and injuries this year.

Vika will win a few AO's simply because its at the start of the season, however when she's on a winning streak she's on fire but as soon as it ends she doesn't really seem to recapture the magic, plus I just don't feel she has the game to beat Masha or Petra while they're playing close to their best, so if they are consistently in the latter stages and playing well at GSs that could affect Vika's slam count.

Aga, I feel she may win a couple but I feel she's actually stepped back from her Asian form were she was going for more with her serve and forehand. She would need a few people to tumble as well which will happen at some stage, and she seems like a player more than capable of taking opportunities handed to her.

I'm sure after Maria won wimbly at 17 people thought she'd have MANY more.
before her shoulder injury Masha had to compete with Justine(7), Serena(13), Venus(7), Amelie(2), Kim(4), Lindsey(3) multiple slam winners, it was a group of great players, some of them will be for a very long time in top 10 women tennis players ever
+ Kuznetsova, Ivanovic , Jankovic (all in best form) + Dementieva, Safina, Myskina, Pierce (not peak)

now we have only 1 active multiple slam winner - Sharapova who is in 5 finals this year and current №2, not #1 just because she missed a part of the 2011 season (because of injury )


of course with such a low competition in current WTA tour anyone among this group of mediocre players from so-called Generation Suck can catch 1-2 Slams, but they are not dominant enough even against similar mediocre players of their geneneration . Therefore i do not see any 5+ time Champions neither in Vika, nor in Petra . But they still can get 2-3 slams on their best surfaces just because of lack of real rivalry in WTA and kind draws

If Sharapova continues to play as she does in the season 2012 she will win more slams than Vika + Petra combined . Moreover we shouldn't forget that Vika is only 2 years younger than Maria,

Maria already has 4 slams. Who knows if Kvitova and Azarenka will ever reach 5. If both reach 4 the career slam would give Maria the easy edge, atleast as far as slams alone. Maria will probably win atleast 1 more too. I didnt think previously it would be Maria, but it is looking more likely now. Then again the womens game is so weak and Kvitova and Azarenka still so young, they could well scavenger alot of slams so still not certain. Maria is a middle aged player now and will probably only play 2 or 3 more years anyway.

And despite Maria being "a contender at every major", she has won only one single Slam title in the last 4 years, which is not more than Vika or Petra have in the last 1 year. That and since Vika and Petra are much younger than Pova, my logic tells me that they will end up with more Slams.

She has spoken a bunch of times already how the shoulder problem and the layoff have changed her perspective on things and made her realized how much she loves competing. Furthermore, there was a meeting in Miami between ITF officials & players in which the qualification for the Olumpics had been discussed and Maria said that she ain't happy that they changed the requirements which indicates she will participate in Rio as well plus she will be 29 in 2016.

Considering the fact that it took over 4 years to win her 4th slam after winning her 3rd and she's only reached back-to-back major finals twice in her career, ending her career in the 5-9 range would be a huge accomplishment for her.

After her losses in majors to Dulko, Kirilenko, and Pennetta, I certainly didn't think she'd win another major, but it's not like she's dominating the tour and world #1 or anything (or even #2 for that reason).

I think she said "If I'm still playing at 40, I have problems" and then laughed. I think someone was talking about Kimiko and asked if she would ever play at that age. I don't think she's ever said she wouldn't play until she was 30. She did say at 21, about Justine "If I had that many slams at that age (Justine was 25 almost 26), I'd retire too". She then mistook this for something she said at 18 but she was actually 21 as Justine retired in May of 2008 and therefore she was only four years away.

Basically the moral of the story is, people are allowed to change and will do so.

The WTA cant stay as weak as it is now forever, and is already improving. Serena and the parity of the WTA will keep everyones slam count down until then. Sharapova with 4 slams might well have won more slams than either of them ever do. Also considering Maria has the Career Slam either would have to win 5 to really have done as well or better in winning slams than Maria even if Maria stays at 4. Add to that Maria will probably atleast win 1 more slam in her career, and she seems like a slam dunk at this point.

Why are you giving up on KvittyGOAT? :o

Azarenka's grown on me a lot lately, but I still only see her finishing with 2-3 Slams. She'll be super-consistent and no doubt a perennial semifinalist/finalist at Slams, but (unless she adds a kill shot to her arsenal which can get her out of tight holes), there's probably always going to be 2 or 3 players who just have a higher peak level than her and can take her out at any one time.

LOL at 9 votes for Wozniacki. Maybe OP should have specified Copenhagen is not a slam event.

I still predict Serena to win 20 slams. What is your point. Many others do too. Time will tell, but considering she can beat todays top 3 players as easily as rolling out of bed it is hardly an unreasonable prediction.

You are truly an annoying and poor trolling excuse of a poster, who doesnt even bring the amusement value of skilled trolls such as marinablue, MamaJama, madmax (when she was alive) so to my ignore list you go.

Exactly, I'm not here to make you laugh. You're full of shit and I'm telling it how I see it.

Oh I can :lol: you're jumping on everyone's back as soon as they win a major. Just so you know you voted for Serena to reach 20 Slams :lol:

How much you expect Masha to win?! Curious..

About 7. I wish I could say 10 but no, it's too much.

7? Okay..not too shabby, I'd say. Any guess where the next 3 will come? I say another RG and 2 more oz opens.

As long as she's the most accomplished player of this century after Serena I'll be happy. :wavey:

It's not THAT hard! I mean, who has the most slams after Serena, Henin with 7?

This century is just starting. There is plenty that may happen. Likely you will not see the result, even if you are 12 you'd be 100 years old.

Not like you to predict such a high Slamcount for Maria :eek:

Henin with 7 , but NO Wimbledon in her collection

For Sharapova it is as hard to win the 5th Slam as it is hard for Vika to win the second. Nobody can guarantee in tennis this or this player definitely will win Slam or 3 Slams.

I think Maria will end up with 5 slams. Another RG to make it 5. Outside chance of 6 which would either mean 2 more RG or 1 more RG and 1 more Australian, but more likely 5. Either way she will go down as clay being her best surface ironically enough, and the very distant 2nd best clay courter of the 98-2015 period after Henin I predict (unless Serena also wins another RG which isnt impossible).

She isnt going to win 2 more AOs, no way. That is a good surface for her but with Serena and Azarenka, her two worst opponents by far, both excelling there, not a chance at winning multiple more there.

very reasoned post as usual. but I think continued cakewalk draws + continued wta mental midgetry + serena won't be around forever will net her at least 6 or 7, sadly. 5 is kind of conservative.

Good call..I expect her to play longer than Serena...and realistically those are the only majors she even has a SHOT at winning right now. We'll see. The problem with Maria is that she is barely reaching multiple finals a year and hasn't won multiple majors in a year yet, so that's holding her back.

I think she's still making progress in that regard. Despite her up and down play this season she may well have the best year of her career as far as majors are concerned. This is the first time ever that's she made multiple finals in the same season.

Everything depends on what players will come up behind them, but I think Sharapova will win several more. Maybe one or two more FO and one or two more of the other three. So, if she stays healthy I can see her having 6-8 by the time she's done. Azarenka is consistent and if not the outright favorite she could be a co-favorite in three of the four majors for years to come. Let's say that she'll end up with 4-6. Kvitova is the mystery girl for me. She'll probably win a few more Wimbledons, but other than that I have no idea. She could if she develops a middle game win more than the other two, but if not I can also imagine her ending up with fewer than them. Wozniacki was even in her #1 days a co-fave behind a few others (and only in two of the four slams at that) rather than the outright favorite. She needs to end the downward spiral her career is in real soon or it will be too late. As we speak her chances of winning a slam are virtually zero.
