    These chokerovas or screamerovas?
    These overrated Krauts?
    The Chinese Red Army?

    :):):)


    Face it - Caroline will win slams in the next years. A lot of slams.

    she would have to get to the slam finals first but i don't recall she ever made it there. some lower ranked players would dismiss her along the way.

    The players who've been beating her in slams of course. This argument would only be valid if she was making slam finals routinely and losing to Williams and Clijsters. She's made one slam final in a wide open draw 2 years ago. Since then she's lost to Zvonerava, Kvitova, Hantuchova, Na Li basically the people you're mocking in your post.

    Kvitova, Goerges, the french girl who almost knocked out Sharapova would be my choices, however, tennis is a sport where things change really quick.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Woz is going to win a slam (or more) someday. She is by far the most consistent and still has a long career ahead of her.
    Her problem however is that most top players can beat her on a good day due to her style of play. So she'll have to wait for a slam where she doesn't run into a big hitter in good form. Sooner or later this is probably going to happen and given her consistency she should be able to take that opporunity.

    i think if sabine lisicki can stay healthy, she can be a contender in the future. she has a big serve, aggressive game, isn't afraid to come to net, hits a decent dropshot and is still pretty young (21, 22?)

    No one, the WTA wont generate income and will go bankrupt, in all seriousness probably sharapova, azarenka or hauntichova

    Kvitova, Azarenka, Pavly, Lisicki and Gorges will overtake Wozniacki and be the ones winning slams more than her from that generation. And the generation to follow that one will be stronger than this one. Sharapova also has a better shot at future slams than Wozniacki.

    It wouldnt surprise me if Wozniacki never wins a slam.

    No one really has hopes for her. Her play doesn't help her. I agree with kvitova and others will take the GS. Maybe she would take one day one GS, no more than that.

    We'll possibly see a lot of one-slam winners. Maybe there will be one or two new "stars" by then.

    Who exactly?? I read somewhere that among the juniors, there have been close to 20 different Slam champions in consecutive Slams. GIven that the women play juniors these days till a later age than previously, draw your own conclusions.

    Or is this just a hope and a prayer?

    A generation of one-two slam winners is upon us where picking a winner is like throwing darts.

    Petra Kvitova will win more slams than the other newcomers.

    It seems that the women nowadays in professional tennis lose focus and are very emotionally up and down unlike say steffi graff

    I can see a couple, but not that many. She can't move.
