In Top 8 we have three players with no Slams. Clijsters, Mauresmo, Rubin. Which of them, do you think, will retire Slamless?

Well, I am pretty sure about Chanda. With her long career she reached semis only once, and quarters only four times. I really don't see any good Slam run in her..

Mauresmo. I think that she is likelier not to win a GS tournament, than to win it. 25:75.

Clijsters. She is good on all surfaces. The problem is, on no surface she is the best. 50:50

Another question.. We used to have a #1 currently holding no Slams . Have WTA ever had #1 with no GS at all? Rios-like? Will Kim be the first one?

Kim will be the first one....I believe there's a 60% chance that Kim will go slam-less.....unless the Willies retire early. Justine , with mental lapses gone, owns Kim now on Clay and pretty much on grass....and The Willies own Kim on hardcourt grass and rebound ace.....which means-no slams for Kim!

Kim will win a slam before the end of her career. That's 100%.

Amelie will win a slam before the end of her career. That's 100%.

As for Chanda, it's at 25%.

Chanda will probably retire slamless since I don't see her playing past her early 30's. Muaresmo get injured too much for me to believe that she will ever win a Slam. Kim has the best chance of winning one out of the three of them, but unless she plays Lindsay Davenport in a final, I don't see her winning one any time soon because she will most likely face a Williams sister, Justine or Jennifer in a quarterfinal, semifinal or final and she only has one win against one of them (Justine, 20021 FO semifinal). She will have to ger over her mental hangups if she plans of winning a Grand Slam before she gets to number one.

Kim beat Serena in the WTA champs final last year so she can win big matches. Her time will come.

As much as I like Amelie and Chanda, I would say those are the 2 which will remain slamless. Amelie is so talented but she gets injured too much, Chanda doesn't have a big weapon. I think Kim will win a couple of slams before she retires.

That tourney meant nothing to Serena. That was not a big match. Serena said herself that she was mentally tired of playing at that tournament. Until she defeats Henin, Venus, Serena, Capriati, Davenport, at a slam she hasn't had a big win over a top player at the slams. She is sort of like Venus pre-Wimbledon 2000. Venus got that first big win over a top player #1 Hingis at a slam, and that kick-started her slam run. She started beating Davvy and Hingis at the slams.

Failing bad injuries or a little Hewitt coming too soon, I see Kim holding a few Slams before retirement. Never forget how close she got in 2001 at RG and 2003 at OZ. Something soon will click, she just turned 20 last month.

I think she will win a few slams also. Although V and S are the best. It's highly unlikely they will win every GS for the rest of Kim's career. Things happen, just like at RG 2003, the WS are bound to lose sometime. So Kim will win sometime between the sisters GS streaks. I wouldn't say she was close at AO 2003 because had she beat Serena, she would have played a very determined Venus, and most likely would have lost.

LOL @ little Hewitt :lol: :lol: :lol:

LOL! You like the word "own", don't you? I think you are engaged in some major wishful thinking.

Serena can just contiune to win the slams, with the form she has now, she doesn't even come to net as much as say venus does, and when venus is on, and playing like this, only serena can beat her. there is so much more serena can add to her game. she can still get better. that is why odds are she will continue to win the slams.

I dont think its very realistic to say that anyone has a 100% chance.

I'd say these are percentages of them WINNING a slam...

Kim 90%
Amelie 75%
Chanda 25% :( I love u Chanda!!
