Who do you think will be the next player to win 24 slams?

Margaret Court was the first to do so in the early 1970s. I guess if Serena doesn't do it then it'll take genetic engineering to do so when players play more than 100 years on tour in the future because of long life span like Thor and Thanos who have genetic enhancements and long life spans in the thousands of years.

I don't think anyone gives a fuck about winning 24 slams anymore

Couple slams, few million dollars, husband, family, retire

Why kill yourself for a record no one cares about? For a title that is meaningless?

If no one cared about this record Serena would be retired by now.

Re: Who do you think will be the next player to win 24 slams?

Cori Gauff has already said she wants to be the greatest of all time. If it is her desire, she needs to tie and then pass Serena's 23 slams record in the open era. Now, does the it-girl has what it takes to make her dream come true ? That remains to be seen. Personally, in the WTA right now, i don't see anyone with the ability to match or surpass Serena in the coming years.

Sugarpova. If she wins every slam starting this Wimby it will take little more than four years.

It won't happen again.

That doesn't mean someone else won't be the next GOAT. Given the calibre of player, I'd take fifteen, twelve or even ten slams in a golden era over twenty plus in a mediocre one.

Re: Who do you think will be the next player to win 24 slams?

Margeret Court's 24 record is meaningless if you know your tennis history, in Australia for example she played 6 rounds not 7 to win all those slams, and all those matches were against home county level players, the level of tennis then compared to know is about the distance between the Sun and Pluto. Serena has the real record already.

This is great for Naomi, Kiki, and Al Nabhani (who should really be contesting club matches against Alexandra Stevenson), so everybody wins!
Mladenovic wins 63 63
