Very soon this list will be shorted. Serena, Venus, Schiavone, Li, Stosur will probably retire in next two or three years. Some of them maybe even earlier.

Even so.. new players will still win slams and still be active so it could increase. We will hopefully still have Azarenka, Sharapova, Ivanovic, Kvitova and new slam winners hopefully.

I think that this show how consistent the top players can be, not giving the opportunity to the newcomers.

Serena is responsible for Schiavone & Stosur being slamchamps.
Maria for Na, Azarenka, Kvitova.
Henin for Ivanovic.

I'm sorry but

I could also say that Stosur is responsible for 10 of Serena's 15 GS as she didn't bring her A Serena-kicking game since the beginning

Re: 10 active players have won slams, too many or too few?

Totally forgot Ivanovic won the French Open.

But yeah, it's pretty similar to the ATP tour. I think more newcomers will start to win more GS titles as the big ones retire. Serena will probably retire in a year or two, I wouldn't be surprised if Venus retired next year. Kinda scary cause that means Sharapova will be the last 'diva' left and from then on it will be pretty much 100% new generation of players. I don't think that's a bad thing though; I would be excited to see Radwanska and Azarenka in a final if Radwanska improved. I just hope more younger players will start to come up at the same rate Venus, Serena and Maria did.

And I REALLY want more Hingis-esque players to appear. Tennis nowadays is getting way too general as nearly everyone is a power player. It's better if it's 50/50 cause a match between two contrasting styles of play can be so interesting, for e.g. Sharapova vs Radwanska in Istanbul.

Your attempt at mental gymnastics gets you high points from the judges for difficulty, but unfortunately not such good points for execution.

Seems like you started out "Serena is responsible for Stosur being a slamchamp, Stosur for Schiavone, Schiavone for Na..." and then went "oops, that doesn't work...."

Uhm, for how long have you been following tennis? That's not true at all Serena is one of the best players of all time, but aside from Sharapova no one from the previous generation of players (e.g. Jankovic, Ivanovic, Petrova, Kuznetsova) is in the top 10 anymore

Li Na is nearly 30 but solidified herself as a top player alongisde the likes of Azarenka, Kvitova, Wozniacki and Radwanska. Same goes for Stosur. The new generation has rose for the occasion, 4 of them have already one a slam (Stosur, Li, Kvitova and Azarenka) and 3 of them have already reached a slam final (Wozniacki, Errani and Radwanska). Kerber hasn't reached a final yet, but she just broke through and managed to beat both Sharapova and Serena in the same year

Serena and Sharapova are all time greats, but I'd say the new generation is making a great name for itself. Definitely much more honorable than the flop generation of Golovin, Szavay, Vaidisova and the likes.

Re: 10 active players have won slams, too many or too few?

Regarding the OP, Schiavone should thank Stosur for that slam win until the last day of her career. Stosur should be a 2x slam winner by now. Same goes for Li (should've beaten Clijsters at the AO).

The others have earned each of their slams, and it could be argued that Sharapova should have a couple more if it weren't for the shoulder injury (would've likely won the 2008 French Open and the AO this year). But Azarenka is currently playing at slam champ levels, so I'm not sure I'd be OK with her being slamless.

I hope so. They all have potential to win more GS titles, and I hope they will do that before new generation replaces them.

Re: 10 active players have won slams, too many or too few?

quantity is good, quality is poor .... Multiple Slam winners are not in form(Kuzzie) / part-timers(Serena)/ going to retire soon(Venus), . From 1 Slam winners only Kvitova and Azarenka are young and have chances for 2nd Slam...

it's what is called transitional era or weak field....
