That's predicting a lot of Grand Slams for the top players. There's always nobodys and there will be some great players coming from the juniors.

I think if you add all the slams up, it will be less than the next 40 slams, which would be the next 10 years. So there still will be some slams left for people not here yet, or not contenders yet. Well for the men anyway, the current women are so powerful and dominant especially a motivated Serena, a healthy Henin-Hardenne, and a mature Sharapova the juniors can eat chocolate bars for their treats, very few slams will be available.

Wow. That is quite a prediction for some of those players. I would be surprised if any of them win half of what you predicted. It is just the fact that there will be a lot of players who will end up being one-slam wonders. Then you have to factor in the new players. If we did this prediction two years ago I doubt if anybody would have predicted Fedex to win 18. Interesting to think about it. I am sure there is another player on both the men's and the women's sides that is just about to break loose and start winning a slam or two.

What you are forgetting is some of the players I identified are already very new. Sharapova for example who is only 17. As for Roger winning 18 slams, atleast 1 slam a year the next 8 years makes 12, then he just needs 6 additional slams among the 8 years, easy to imagine. So 18.

No way Fed wins 18 - no way ANYONE win 18. There's always a new guy coming along.

I'd say Fedex will win about 15 or 16 slams. I love watching Gonzo, but I don't think he'll win a slam. I think that you're pretty accurate with your prediction of Dementieva's slam wins.

Gonzalez will win the French in the next 3 years. If he didn't run into Ferrero in the quarters in 2003 (and pushed my man VERY close) he could of done it then.

What about Henman? :shock: He WILL win wimbledon, or maybe the French :lol:

Davey,
I will be impressed if Fedex will still be on the tour in 8 years. let alone still winning slams. I am a huge Federer fan, but I just don't think this is realistic. I would love it if he did, but I just don't think it is possible with the depth of men's tennis.

There is no way Fed wins 18. As good as he is I would give him 10-12 TOPS.

Agassi was winning slams into his 30s and Federer and certainly not less talented than Agassi. So winning a slam at 31 is beyond realistic for Federer, it is likely. Not even on tour in eight years if he wants to be. LOL! get real.

As for Henman he will never win a slam.

Maria has not sucked the last few weeks. Except for the loss to Molik she has been very impressive and is getting her confidence back. She, Serena, and Justine are clearly the most talented, powerful, and mentally tough women in the game and will be for some time health and motivation permitting.

Dementieva is definitely going to win a slam next year. She's consistently got deep into slams this year and I think she'll finally get over it and control her nerves better.

She needs to reconstruct her serve. I hope she does. She has the power and athleticsm to have a great serve. She doesnt even have a decent serve. What a worthless lame serve she has and she still made 2 slam finals with that huge disablity. Amazing.
