a post without Monica wow im shocked.

I think Serena will end her career with 11 she will win another Aussie, Wimnbledon and 2 US Opens.

Venus will end hers with 8 she will win an Aussie a French and another Wimbledon.

Justine will have another 4 French Opens and possibly a US Open making her total 9.

Maria will win a total of 13 Slams in her career winning the Aussie 3 times Wimbledon 5 times US Open 4 times i doubt she will ever win French.

Kim will end hers with 5 winnig 2 Aussie Opens a Wimbledon and another US Open by end of next year.

Davenport might wend hers with another one but that might be the last one it could be at Wimbledon but not quite sure.

An obsessive Graf-anatic posting in a non Steffi Graf worship and Monica bashing thread is more SHOCKING don't you think?

Serena - 11
Venus - 8
JHH - 7

I'm not going to speculate on one slam wonders. Let them separate themsleves from the pack with that second slam, then I'll think about it. Every player who wins one slam does not win two. Look at Sabatini.

1. Serena--7 + ? = ?
2. Venus--5 + ? = ?
3. Justine--4 + ? = ?
4. Maria --1 + ? = ?
5. Kim--1 + ? = ?
6. other players ???

Serena Williams It's obvious that Serena has the best record of anyone during the last couple of years, and it is obvious that she is bound to win many, many more Slams if her body holds up. I think it will in upcoming years and I give her four more Slam wins in the next four years, until she hangs up her rackets.

Venus Williams Who knows? I think she is more committed to tennis than her younger sister and I think 2006 will be very, very good to her. I say six more Slams, three Wimbledons and US Opens...maybe an Australian Open, until she retires.

Justine Henin-Hardenne She can win a couple more, for sure. She'll win at least four more French Opens until she retires, which will probably be in like, eight years. She is so talented on the clay court of France. I stick with four more Slams.

Kim Clijsters Maybe one or two more. Sooner or later, people are going to realize how she wins and I see only a couple of Australian or French Opens in the near future. Venus, Serena, Maria, and Justine will be too tough.

Maria Sharapova Man...she's got talent. If her body holds up, I think she can win at least six Slams until the end of her career, followed by incredible and consistent seasons, even better than the ones in 2004 and 2005. She deserves to be recognized.

Wow KimC&MariaSNo1's, that's a lot of slams for Maria! You really think she'll win that much? Anyway my predictions:

Serena - I think she'll go on to win 3-4 more bringing her total to 10-11.
Venus - I see about 2-3 more for a total of 7-8.
Justine - 4 more for a total of 8.
Kim - 2-3 more for a total of 3-4. This is if she retires in 2 years like she says she will.
Maria - I think at the end of her career, given that she stays until her mid-late 20s and given that her pec injury doesn't hamper her progress, she'll probably win a total of about 6-8. If she improves next year, I could see her even reaching 10 but that's probably the fan in me talking.
Lindsay - I think she has one more slam in her. And I do hope she does win one more though before she retires. She deserves it.
Mary Pierce- Probably 1-2 more...hopefully even at least one more.
Amelie - Well, we're still waiting for her first and hopefully she gets it but judging by the way her career has gone so far, I'd say she'll probably win a total of 2 if she works really hard.

I hope Elena D. goes on to win at least 1...haha...but in total I think if she puts everything together, she could win 2-3 at the most.

I hope so. I do believe in her and her potential. But winning for her also depends on her competition. Right now I dont see anyone younger than her who can be that much of a threat and who is more talented. Vaidisova has the powerful strokes and the huge serve but still has to prove herself against the elite players but is the most likely of the younger players to pose a threat to Maria. Anyway, we'll see how next year goes...

Serena will have the most. About 7 more before her Nike contract ends and she retires. I mean, look @ the way she pulled Australia out of her ass in January. And She won 5 slams in 15 months, she can do 7 more before the end of her contract/career.
