I agree with you but like sharapova i can see naomi improving because she has the desire , she has very big career goals and i m sure she will put hardwork :smile2:3 or 4 years? That's a VERY long time in tennis. Anything can happen with other players also developing and coming through. Osaka may have just found herself with a window of opportunity, or she may stay the course. Time will tell!
You’ll get no backlash from me. I don’t think it’s implausible to say that she is capable of 10 slams. But, as we all know, the capacity to win that many is far different from having the drive and determination to make it happen. And yes, I agree Venus and Maria both looked capable of 10+ slams early in their careers, but unfortunately for them Serena was almost always in the way. In the absence of a clear and dominant Serena-like player, perhaps Naomi could have a slightly easier path to claiming more titles, if she improves her mentality and consistency.

Also add theories that we think she will end up as goat when we never claimed that. We just see she has potential to win many but not delusional to think she will end up with 30. You see when people hate on young player with her recent success there must be something good bcoz young player's success is bothering many:SNE:Typical TF reaction. Naomi loses early at the French Open on her worst surface and now her career is over. And not surprisingly the thread is opened by a Halep fan. Some of them are incredibly bothered by her success.
BINGO!!! :yeah::yeah::yeah:I think she will win a few more, (2-3). Though I don't think she will win RG or Wimbledon, she will always be dangerous at the HC slams.
But then again, who thought Ivanovic would end her career as a one-slam wonder when she won RG in 2008, having also reached the AO final a few months earlier. :shrug:
Who thought in 2014 that Vika and Petra would still be at 2 slams? :shrug:
Who thought in 2015 that Angie would surpass both of them? :shrug:
Nothing is for granted in tennis
By Vika and Petra both had years off not winning slams before their situations occured. Vike seem to lose her focus and intensity due to injury and Petra has always been a mystery not quick solved on how to get her to play peak tennis more often through a slam.I think Osaka not winning another slam is unlikely, given that she is still pretty young.
I also think that it's hard to predict her future, as there can always be dips in form, injuries and all kinds of events that send one promising player off road.
Kvitova and Azarenka both seemed destined to have 5+ slams at least, but then life happened (pregnancy and a knife attack). Azarenka was also very consistent in WTA tournaments, which Osaka isn't, while Kvitova has been erratic, but less so than Naomi.
Yet, Osaka won 2 slams back to back, a feat that Azarenka got really close to in 2012-2013, but didn't achieve.
So, given the level she has showed so far, I would say she has a nice career in front of her, and a couple more slams to win, but getting 10+ slams seems out of the realm of possibilities, unless she drastically improves her game and avoids injuries and other off-tennis life events.
As I said, she's physically holding two slams right now, how on earth does anyone conclude she won't win another. It's possible but there certainly isn't any reason to rationally think so right now.Typical TF reaction. Naomi loses early at the French Open on her worst surface and now her career is over. And not surprisingly the thread is opened by a Halep fan. Some of them are incredibly bothered by her success.
YesI am surprised by all these posters in different threads predicting Osaka winning 22+ slams.
I don't know how people think that would be possible with her limited play style. She has a big forehand well suited for baseline ball bashing. She hit out the court opponents in two slams, but with her repetitive play style and lack of variety I think she is going to be exposed and not reach another slam final.
In fact I think this is what has been happening in the last couple of months rather than the shock of Sascha break-up, players have grown accustomed to her style and without improving her game intelligence, net play and with a serve that is nowhere near as effective as peak Serena, I don't see how she has any chance to be the dominant player everyone predicts she will be.
