What are Ur Career Hopes, Dreams, and Wants for Serena?

Disregard this out-dated poll....lol When this thread was first created things were very different and Serena had a mere 12 Slams...lol I created the poll for balance, I didn't think we'd be fortunate enough to witness what we are witnessing. So that's why the poll options may appear bizarre now- back then either option in the poll was acceptable but now some of them appear rather meek and others she's already surpassed.

---------------------------------------------------------------
Use this thread to share with other fellow Rena fans your hopes and dreams for Serena- All the titles, slams, or records you want to see her get before she retires. Sadly we are in the twilight of Serena's career so I will remind you all to appreciate and cherish her, she won't be out there forever.

I think at this point I would most like to see her tie Steffi's slam count- to me that would be beyond remarkable. I would be fine with Rena breaking the record but in the even that request is too greedy I'm more than happy with a tie for 22 slams!

If she did make it to 22 here's how I hope things would add up:
6 Oz
4 RG
6 Wimbledons
6 US Opens

And one more Olympic Gold in both singles and doubles!

What would u guys most want to see Rena accomplish??

Re: Career WISHES for Serena?

I agree! It would be awesome to see her win all four in one year...the anticipation would be huge going into the US Open, and I'm sure her reaction would be priceless!

Re: Career WISHES for Serena?

Well...my "career" wishes for Serena are a bit different. They include:

-More weeks @ #1
-At least 50 WTA titles
-Olympic gold in singles
-One more Roland Garros title

Just so she can sort of be more in the conversation when talking about the all-time greats. She's the greatest of this generation by and large, but to chase Evert, Nav, Graf, and Court she would need to do a little bit more. The hunger is there though; she's not going anywhere anytime soon it appears.

Re: Career WISHES for Serena?

Of those 3, #1

but I agree with Serenafan08. I want those things.

I honestly think that 18+ is SUPER realistic w/ how the tour is these days

Serena would top Evert and Navratilova either way, since neither of them won the Grand Slam. I would love to see her do that, and I would also love to see her and Venus do it in doubles. Also, option C would "only" tie her with Helen Wills Moody for third place with 19.

Re: Career WISHES for Serena?

I'll take the 19, as that would mean she's winning slams for another 2/3 years. Also, she can win another french, but she will still "only" have 2, and it'll still be used against her. The calendar slam... meh, she's already had the Serena slam, so I'm content, UNLESS it involves her winning the olympics in singles as well... Then it could get tricky... The tiebreaker however, would be if in Option 2; You could exchange one Australian Open with another French, giving her 6/3/5/4. Having 3 slams at each venue is highly appealing and would be my choice for sure, but as it stands I'll take the 19 slams for raw numbers(plus having 12 HC is no joke and would be three ahead of Steffi, as well as improving on her record at the Oz Open.)

Either way, I also want one more Miami title, and for her to at least pass Venus/Martina/Justine's title count of 43, no reason why she should be behind them. Kim too, if she goes back to winning form. This will probably be given if she wins those 6 additional slams + Miami.

I like the idea of Serena winning slams for multiple uears as opposed to all in oneyearand never again, however I still get a hard-on for the thought of a calendar slam.

It's ironic I chose 18 when I was having a hard time deciding between 17 and 19. *Of all the made-up scenarios in the poll, 18 is by far the worse choice. *To have her simply tied w.Everatilova (without either a calendar slam or more slams won) doesn't help to bolster her in the GOAT debate. *

Martina has her record at Wimbledon, 5 slams in a row, and the best season of all time, Chrissie has her streak of years in the top 1-3, her streak of slams one annually, and her streak on clay. *The calendar slam, especially at this stage of Serena's career, would be something that would elevate her status to arguably the greatest of all time- winning 19 slams accomplishes that as well. *So it's a toss up between those two.

Re: Career WISHES for Serena?

It is really hard to decide. I would love to see her do a calendar slam and I would really love for her to reach the big 20 in slam totals. I think this is within her reach as long as she's healthy and plays for another 3 - 4 years. The talent out there just isn't enough to keep a healthy Serena Williams from adding more slams to her total.
