    So close now, and it would be awesome if she did it winning 3 consecutive Calendar Grand Slams.

    Do you think Serena will do it?

    I wasn't aware that 11 slams away is considered close.

    Serena is not matching Court, and Federer will never match Laver.

    I mean the Grand Slam--the ultimate achievement in tennis.

    Federer could not touch that.

    4 th place is pretty good. I think at best she can manage 4 more slams to at least equal Navritova and Evert.....the 2012 US Open would be key!
