The Williams' outlook at the opening of this '09 tennis season is as bullish as it has been at any time in the past 5 years. Lay down your predictions people.

Aussie open is not the best surface for Venus.

Re: Pony Up: How Many Slams for the Williams in 2009?

Well lets look historically

1999: 1
2000: 2
2001: 2
2002: 3
2003: 2
2004: 0
2005: 2
2006: 0
2007: 2
2008: 2

They've collectively won 2 or more majors 7/10 years. In 2006 neither played a full schedule and in 2004 they were coming off injury.

Provided they play ~13/14 tournaments which indicates relative health I'd be surprised if they bucked this trend.

I'm saying zero - even tho I'm not superstitious lol

One thing I think still rings true - injury free & focused, these girls should win 3 slams minimum.

I predict the Williams Sisters are going to win everything. 4 GS, Indian Wells, Miami, Beijing, Madrid and YEC.

They'll win 3 of them, only being shut out of the French Open title
