    How many slam titles will the incredible Justine Henin win in 2008? I think she will win 3 of the 4, but unfortunately the 4th will elude her. I am not sure which that will be though.

    Haha, if you think she is only winning the French you are crazy. She is the best player out there now, who the hell is going to take 3 other slams from her.

    Then, I think you should call the closest mental institution, and make sure there are enough beds. :shock:

    Haha funny, so who the hell is going to take 3 slams away from her. The others girls arent even strong enough right now to win 3 slams between them in fact. She has to win more then 1.

    As, I said she might win 1 or 2, even though I respect her game, similar to Steffi Graf, I am not a fan of Justine. With that being said, whether or not she is a favorite, I will always have to pick Venus Williams ahead of her. Granted Justine, might win all 4, but I would never predict that outcome.

    Venus could win 1 slam maybe, I dont think she will but she could I agree, if she did probably at Wimbledon where Justine is most likely to lose if she loses anywhere, but Venus isnt going to win 3 or something. She hasnt won more then 1 slam in any year since 2001, and she has only won 2 slams total since 2001. Dont you think hoping for even 1 slam from Venus next year is a great thing to wish for realistically given what I just said? Oh well to each their own.

    ^^^^

    Realistically, I don't see Venus winning 3 slams next year either. With the tennis and the WTA, nothing is guaranteed, and maybe one of those young pretenders can make a breakthrough. Henin has had an outstanding 10 months this year, and as I said that doesn't matter to me.

    Well the young pretenders have a long way to go I think. Jankovic has lost to Justine something like 10 times in a row now, I dont know if she ever beats her, in fact I see her dropping, her serve and her forehand are no good, and neither is her net game, too many glaring weakness to stay that high. Ivanovic is good but can she beat Justine, Venus, Serena, or Maria on a surface other then clay? She didnt prove that this year, most times when she played 1 of those she got spanked and wasnt even in the match. Kuznetsova, if she is even young enough to count as that anymore, always seems to lose against Justine or Maria, she can beat the Williams but never in a grand slam when it matters yet. Chakvetadze isnt that good, she looks like a B-Hingis in her prime at best, she might stay where she is since the current field of womens tennis isnt that great but no higher.

    That is why I see Justine winning atleast 3 slams. 1 of Venus or Maria might sneak out a slam but not both of them, and only 1 if one of them does. I believe those are Justine's 2 closest competitors now, but Justine still has the edge in health, consistency, and confidence over both. Serena is too out of shape to ever win a slam again, and Justine owns her ass now. Ivanovic and Kuznetsova are good enough to stay ranked high but Justine is much too good for them, and Maria and Venus and Serena probably are too. Jankovic and Chakvetadze overachieved to even get where they are, and their stays so high in the game will be short lived I predict.

    Anyway that is my opinion, it should be fun to see what happens, I care about the men much more then the women so I dont even care that much, tennis is always fun to watch either way.

    Interesting votes so far. Less then half think more then 2, a bit surprising.

    Venus's chances like Justine's are dependent alot on Jennifer's possible but not certain return.

    Yeah. Justine will win 3 slams. Either Venus or Maria will win Wimbledon.
