I just wanted to know all of the opinions of the members on this messageboard...Think about it this way when she comes back healthy and real fit does she have another shot..Yes/no...why? :D

If she can get back into the best physical shape she can and not face a 100% williams than she has a very decent chance of winning..None of the other players can hit monica off court..its the movement that lets her down- same with lindsay..sort out the movement than she has a chance...

Ditto, Villa! Fitness is the bottom line for Monica when she returns; her competitive spirit was forged in another dimension and will remain impregnable :cool:

As much as I want Monica to win another slam I have to say I would be SHOCKED if she did. I know her groundies match up with anyone's but every player on tour knows about her lack of mobility and they make every effort to exploit this.

If she got 100% fit of course. But she wasn't 100% fit for the past 8 years so I can't imagine her being that fit when she comes back...

Oh most defintely! If she got REALLY fit she could win slam #10. It's all up to Miss Monica. :cool:
Bingo!!!

Definately! Monica has some of the best groundstrokes in the game, she definately has a shot at winning another Grand Slam.

that's pretty much the point... people keep repeating the same thing since the last 5 years... she wasn't able to win back then, i don't see her being able to win now, considering her age, her foot problem and her fitness.

As many said it, if Seles comes back to her best level, she might be a contender.
But, with Serena, Venus, Justine and Kim playing each Grand Slam, who else can really be a contender ?

I really hope so, but I do not think so. I think the game went at a higher level, and with the injury problem, I really do not see how, but I do hope and would like to see Monica winning it one more time :D

Monica will be able to beat Clijsters, Henin, Serena, or Venus

but I'd be shocked if she could do it back to back to back

Thats the problem

Simple Answer: Yes.

I don't think she would even have to be 100% fit. I would say that she was only 70% fit but 100% healthy (no injuries) at the 2002 Australian Open and look how close she got. I am pretty sure she could beat Kim or Jennifer but I think the bigger serves will give her trouble from Venus, Justine, Serena and Lindsay. She can beat them, she has done it before.

Monica needs to be fit in the sense that she wont get tired, not neccesarily do the running

She doesn't run when shes playing her best tennis.

How do you think she got to #1 in the world?


I like Kimmy, but shes Arantxa with a bowflex. (3-0)
Jennifer? Pfft (9-5)
Lindsay? They're about equal right now, and on Rebound Ace, I give the edge to Monica. (3-10)
Serena? Could Happen, ala Venus 2002 (1-4)
Venus? See Serena (1-9)
Justine? She needs to beat Justine like she used to. (4-3)

She can if she were to get fit. When she got fit in 01 she hit hingis and Caprati off the court and got her first win over a Williams. She is more than capable.

A 'contender' would have to be on the same level as the Willies and Bellies. I think not. A GS QF is not out of the question.
