I think she can. If she can get fit and healthy again, why not? She has suffered from too many injuires the past few years. I think she will win a couple of more before calling it a quit. She deserves it!

I hope she can, but I doubt it. If she had a chance, it would be at AO. But she may not even be back in time for that. Even if she was, with the sisters back, the Belgians there and Lindsay healthy, I just don't see it happening. But, I do see her winning a few more tournaments - especially Tier IIs and mabey even a Tier I.

I don't see it happening. Monica has the spirit and fight, but I think her body is not able to keep up with her mind. I see her winning small events, perhaps even a tier 1 at some point, but I don't think she will be able to win a slam.

She's shown she can do anything she puts her mind to. So why not?.

I was wondering when another one these threads would pop-up again. It has been a few months.

To answer the question, depends on her injury and fitness.

If either exists, no. If both are gone, then yes.

As much as I love Monica, and I would LOVE for her to win another one...No, I don't think she'll win another one.

No she won't; she's finished since 4 years.

people said she was over since before that. People said she was over since 1997.

And I'm sick of stuff like this. I'm sick of the "what if's" I'm sick of the "do you think's" It's all just empty words. I wish she'd just come back and play and maybe then the tennis can do the talking... or... she'll just be over and we can have some closure.

*misses Monica*

Monica deserves more success, but unfortunately she'll really need a very good draw for her win a major. Her best shot: AO

If all was good in the world ad blah blah then Monica would be in all GS finals and stuff..but the truth is: It ain´t all good in this world. so me thinks the time of Monica has passed...she´s already 30, so there aren´t that many chances for her to win biggies anymore.

I doubt it, but it would be one of the great tennis moments if it happened!

I think Monica is one of the players with an outside chance to win a major -- but unfortunately there have been no "outside" winners in the past several years in women's tennis (except Capriati's first AO, which doesn't seem so out of place now that she won 2 more majors after that).

Still, we can hope! She can still hit the ball with incredible authority.

Why shouldn't the greatest to ever hold a racket in her hand win a big one again?

Soooooooooooooooo many variables, and the right mix for her to win is a very delicate balance of fitness, desire, the draw....It's a tall order, but then, no one in the history of sport has done what Seles has, so the answer to the thread's question is a definite yes.

Kart, Willow... :wavey:

A healthy, fit Monica has the game and mind to win, but I don't think that's enough because her ranking has dropped so low. She wouldn't be seeded in a Slam, which leaves her unprotected...to win another, she'd conceivably have to go through both Williams sisters, at least one of the Belgians, and probably Jenny, Amelie, or Lindsay to boot. That's a tall order for anyone. Neveryoumind all the young up-and-comers like Sharapova, Zvonerava, Safina, Petrova, etc., whose games get better each year....

I love Monica and will pull for her as long as she continues to play, but I think her days of winning majors are over.

She's shown she can do anything she puts her mind to. So why not?.

She's failed to stick to or even get into optimum shape/condition. I don't see her winning anymore slams without at least getting herself into fighting shape.

I think she has lost her window of oppurtunity.

No she cannot, I'm afraid. I mean, Venus hasn't won a slam since 2001 :eek: How could we think Seles still has a chance? :o

Her window was closed since Parche stabbed her....not because of lack of fitness. Today´s game is about power with althescism....Monica has only the power and no matter how much she would have trained she wouldn´t have become a serena or Venus....she was simply not born an athlete.
