How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

Watching Juju training video, I think she is in a great shape. I think with Serena still injured the season is hers for the taking. She is still a lock for RG, AO looks promising and Wimbledon is possible as well. For some reason I do not see a USO title (maybe she can prove me wrong).

Overall, I think Justine will win 2 grand slams in 2011: Roland Garros and Wimbledon. She will reach at least quarter finals in the other 2 slams and will win 6-7 titles next year as well.

Are you guys as optimistic? Do you think Justine can win slams next year?

Re: How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

Tough to say. The latest trend says that she is unlikely to win one.
RG is her best bet, but her draw will probably be too heavy again and she doesn't seem to be physically strong enough to endure all that. AO and Wimbledon are always unlikely for her.
Perhaps the USO? I am clutching at straws here.

Re: How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

Without Serena, she has a good chance to win AO, and I have had this feeling for 5 months.
If she gets good draw, and be physically prepared well, she will win RG.
I don't think she will win Wimbledon...
US Open...hmm she definitely can, but there are more girls to stop her than in RG.

Maybe she will win 2, but I will be happy if she wins 1-RG.

Re: How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

If she wins AO, I think that will carry her to win RG and, with some luck, Wimbledon but will be too tired to win USO.

If she does not do well in AO, she may still win RG but Wimbledon will be doubtful.

So I think she will win 1 or 3 GS in 2011.
If she plays the whole year and stay healthy, I'll be

If she wins one, I'll be

If she wins two or more, I'll be

Not the tallest or the most powerful but the bravest and the feistiest - she is poetry in motion and at her best she is the best

Adieu Justine. There'll never be another one like you

Not enough for my tastes. To have truly great year, she needs RG+something else. Obviously Wimbledon is something I really want her to win, but I would be satisfied with AO or USO as well. Furthermore Justine should focus on getting #1 back for easier draws.

Re: How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

I've been having really good feelings about 2011 in the last months. For some reason i think it will be the real revival of justine.

Wimbledon, Australian Open should be the biggest goals for next year. Winning 1 of them means shaking off venus, and getting closer to the double digits in slams. ^^

Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

Re: How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

I say 3 - AO, RG, and W

10 is a nice rounded number

Agree!
If she wins AO she will be very confident at RG+ she won it four times.
If Serena doesn't be at the best shape...Venus also, she can do it.
Now I think she has better chance to win US Open than Wimbledon, but of course if I have to choose, I prefer Wimbledon.

But really, one would be enough.

Only for 2011. I hope she'll have more than Serena before she retires again. Also two Olympic gold would be nice.

She will need to win 7 slams to end up with more than Serena. If she can have a 3 slam year in 2011 and a couple of two slam years after that, its certainly possible. Second gold medal would be nice too.

I follow both WTA and ATP very closely and I hope justine can approach Rogers GS count or AT LEAST overtake Nadal

Re: How many slams will Justine Henin win in 2011

Guys, I like how hopeful you are, but seriously, it is wishful to expect Justine will pull off multiple Slam wins for 2-3 seasons at this point. Firstly, she does not plan to play beyond 2012. Secondly, she will have to cut back on her schedule to stay healthy, meaning less match play (rustiness) and tough draws everywhere. Thirdly, her game tweaks might cause her further dips in form every now and then.

I would be thrilled if she won them all of course , but I realistically expect that if she can reproduce her old form, she can win 1-2 RG and maybe 1 more Slam (AO/USO). I don't think she believes she can win Wimbledon beating a WS .

It also depends on whether Serena and Kim will be able to maintain their levels or not. There are so many external factors that are beyond Justine's control - tough draws, injuries/sickness, exceptional performances by another top level player, and some lucky shots that may go one way or the other.

OTOH, Justine has such bad lucks in the past that I think its about time she has some good ones in 2011, and odd year. Hope it starts with AO.
