I'd say 4 or 5. Wimbledon and AO, but no FO or USO

Exactly. Someone like Stosur could end up with say 3 slams possibly, and with all due respect to her she would almost certainly win none if her prime years had come from 1998-2007 (or she would be a 1 time surprise winner ala Myskina). Kvitova would win alot less slams than she will probably end up with if she were born in another era but it is what it is. Of course the WTA could and probably will improve, but it will be a long time before it reaches the kind of depth players like Davenport had to deal with.

If my calculations are correct: 3 more than Henin, but 6 less than Serena

The players of Kvitovas generation will all be easily overpowered by Kvitova on that particular surface, Azarenka being the only one who can maybe sort of hang with her but probably not win on grass. PS- Wozniacki fans please dont make me laugh hysterically for hours by suggesting Wozniacki can challenge Kvitova on grass, if they are ever in the same part of the draw at Wimbledon Woz will probably lose on purpose (well if she even has to) to avoid a beatdown twice as brutal as their 2010 encounter. I do think the Williams in their prime were definitely better overall grass courters (although Kvitova could still improve alot more), and it is basically the weak generation she is coming up with that will allow her to win so many Wimbledons.

The question is the other surfaces. I believe she can win a French, Australian, or U.S Open, but I dont believe she will dominate any of those slams.

I am going to guess 10. 5-7 Wimbledons and 3-5 at the other 3 slams combined.
Interesting...so you say she'll be greater than Vee and Henin?! Hmmm..we'll see. I agree with you though that on grass, she's probably unplayable already. Wozniacki has NO chance against Petra on grass..anybody saying otherwise, well.. Okayy..

Re: How many Grand Slams will Petra Kvitova win in her career?

I think she will end up greater than Venus and Henin with the good fortune of a much worse field to play against, imparticular beating up on a field of grass court scrubs now that the Williams are into their 30s as all of the players of her generation coming up are hard court specialists. I dont think she would have if they were born at the same time, but that is part of the luck factor that players just cant control.

Re: How many Grand Slams will Petra Kvitova win in her career?

Hard do tell, she is not first player with great future- potential. Maybe she will end with 2-3 slams, maybe with lot more. I think she has everything to be long time No.1 for next years and multiple slam winner on all surfaces. Agree with most she is already great at grass and there is no competition - i mean which player know how to play right on grass?
Serena and Venus won´t be here forever, also their form - age could be against them. I can see Petra improove her game, i can see her to be succesfull on HC, indoor, clay that means also AO, USO, RG. She can win them all why not.
But really we must say competition is really bad. I mean old Clijsters won 3 slams since her comeback, and only 1 before - and definetely she was stronger, faster, better before, maybe now she is playing with less pressure but still younger Kim > old Kim and younger Kim had 1 slam, old Kim got 3.... also old Li Na, Schiavionne won slowest slam, where younger better - physically stronger players should be dominating.. maybe competition for Petra will be better in future, but right now it looks like there is nobody to stop her in 2013-2014 for example.

About Maria - she can be better, she has the game, but her serve is the key. Unless she stop making million DF´ s per match she can´t win. Maria had many injuries, surgeries, but really it is pitty and shame that her serve isn´t such weapon like before. I think she could be Karlovic of WTA. She is clearly tallest from top players and has the power - strenght, she could be serve machine with powerfull game, but instead of this she is DF machine with very inconsistent game....

The question is more when will the Serbians and Russians find their long lost forms again to make the tour interesting if only because there's still a large number of them around, while very minute number of old guards left.
Serena likes to talk big, but she wont be here much longer than Kim or Venus. (but thats just my opinion, not objective at all).
post-shoulder Maria just isnt reliable at all. If she cant fix her vulnerabilities she wont be anything, but Petra´s pigeon.
Half of russian army already retired or injured. There are Maria, Vera and Sveta as top players. And Pavs as fresh meat in the grinding. Expecting all them playing high quality at same time or over slams looks false hope.
Serbians? lottery is easier.

so what i want to say, its very possible somebody wins more slam in a season than Petra just because that somebody is better HC or clay player, even if her game cant challenge Petra most of the time.

Re: How many Grand Slams will Petra Kvitova win in her career?

Kvitova is easily a better clay court player than Wozniacki too. Kvitova would win the French before Wozniacki ever could. Wozniacki ever winning the French or Wimbledon would be a huge miracle (I dont think she will win a slam ever but obviously hard courts are her only chance). Only on hard courts is is debateable who has the better chance, but as you can see from the Australian Open poll most already are leaning to Kvitova there too.

But that player certainly ain't gonna be Caro. Caro basically is only a contender at the two HC majors. Petra I think can win RG one day...and if she's on, could do damage on HC's too.

Even on HC's, my money would be on Petra if it was at a major against Caro.
