How many slams will Petra win in 2013?

This is like trying to predict the weather or the stock market, but have a try,

Re: How many slams will Petra win in 2013?

IMO,it's not always necessary to list every theoretical possibility in threads like these;even in her best years and athletic prime,Serena was incapable of winning a calendar Slam...likewise Evert and Navrat...and Graf only managed it once.I'm not complaining,just offering an observation......I completely fail the impartiality test,but I'll vote ONE Slam

Oh God

I picked one because I don't want to be disappointed, but I think Serena is going to dominate all 2013 (bar a few injuries and the like...)

Re: How many slams will Petra win in 2013?

I want to see return from sophomore slum like Serena did in her days but i'm would be more than happy if she don't stink all year, catches few big premier titles and reaches at least SF in 3 slams. I would be insanely mad if Vika wins at least one but Petra misses her opportunities due to injury from playing Czech extraliga oh shii, this already happened this year:

Re: How many slams will Petra win in 2013?

Serena and Maria are there to stay. Azarenka has gotten better. On a bad day, Petra may lose to Kerber, Bartoli and several other girls.
So far she has reached just one slam final in her career.
It's obvious that Wimbledon and AO are her best slams.
I think she will reach one slam final, but lose it. So no slam in 2013.

But I hope she proves me wrong!

Tell me about it. When I think of the stock prices in March 2009 and when they are now. Even Starbucks shares have risen about 500% since the low.

Hmm. Probably zero. Unless Serena pulls out of Wimbledon, and then maybe one.

Re: How many slams will Petra win in 2013?

Right now everyone's down on Petra (especially how she ended the year, including the loss to Anci), so maybe this question can be asked at the beginning of 2013--even.

I mean come on: There's so much uncertainty surrounding this player (her mental state, her fitness/dedication, desire, her coaching, advisor's, management, etc.), that we just have to wait/table this, for a more neutral time.

I do love Mac, Petronius. But his question was certainly poor timing--indeed, as we've ever seen it.

Petra and Maria will split and win two (2) each.
