From the things seen in the first week of this AO, I make the following conclusion: if the younger top players (and some of the upcoming ones) play their A-game (not even their A+ game), then Sharapova, Radwanska and Venus will not win a slam anymore: their window of opportunity has closed.

Esoecially Aggie vs Hsieh was a sad thing to watch.

Nonsense.

Maria & Venus just need more consistency(for Venus surface matters immensely). Nobody saw 2017 in the Slams
coming for Venus. Yet, look. Maria IMO just needs to keep building her confidence. She'll win more Slams, of that
I have no doubt!

@ Pyotr:
 
Maria is less talented than Clijsters, Henin, Graf, Seles, Davenport, Capriati, and she is older than when they retired.
Her prime is over.

Fon’t get fooled by some successes of ‘older’ players over the last years: that was because of generation Fail.
Now we go back to normal with the younger generation taking control. Siniakova atm is not even among the 10 best players younger than 25 and even she exposed Maria.

What I love about Maria & Venus is that they don't let what others have called "conventional wisdom"
dictate what they do or how they do it. It's the reason they are great champions and others aren't.
Mediocre people carry mediocre mentalities. Maria & Venus are not them.

2018, the year to which Maria competes clean and loses badly!

@ Mytiwtiw:
 
French Open domination? I see you are getting wiser every year as you've already given up any hopes on IW or Miami domination Smile Smile

@ Pyotr:
 Oh, I  am not telling them what to do: as far as I am concerned, both Maria and Venus can try to compete until they are 50 if the fire within them still burns.

But that will not stop the decay. I stuck my neck out in 2011-2012 by saying that Venus would never win a major event anymore (slam or Prem.Mand). We are 2018, and still not proven wrong in more than 50 of such events. And in each event, you can see in the match that she lost why.

And I am now saying the same on Maria. Getting deep into draws of big event once in a while? Probably. Winning? highly unlikely ((the'll need a Pennetta-moment or a Sloane-run).

Venus OZ 2017:

Asked if she believes she can win the year's first major, her reply was resolute.

"Why shouldn't I?" Williams said. "I try to believe. Should I look across the net and believe the person across the net deserves it more? This mentality is not how champions are made."


As I said, their is a reason Maria & Venus are champions. Their will always be someone telling you what you cannot do.
You only find out by believing and trying.
