If this was the US Open, I'd agree with you, but Vee simply hates Australia. Just like her dad.

Yes her dad hate Australia lolz..but not Vee. I think she will at least make it to the quarters. If she gets to the quarters then I think she will win as long as she is on the opposite side of the draw as her sister.

Nah...Amelie's cool, I just know that she officially retired yesterday...so she can't win it... :wink:

The thing is...I always really liked her game, she was a hellova talented player and I'll miss her 1H backhand...
Too bad she didn't really believe in the validity of her game anymore... :roll:

Amelie Mauresmo recently retired from the WTA.
I will remember her as one of my all-time favourite players.
She made the game so look so easy and fun,always coming up with an alternative and beautiful tennis.Miss you.



Bye Amelie


1.Serena Williams-to me,the clearest favourite.To cut the long story short-she simply has all the goods to win AO if she doesn't do so,it will be a surprise.
2.Justine Henin-the only reason i didn't put her as my N1 favourite is simply beacuse of the lack of matches.But Kim won USO the same way,and Justine is just a better player than Kim and a better than Serena.If she manages to pull it all off,the title is hers.The draw here could play very important role.
3.Kim Clijsters-i had a strong arguement with Leena in one topic and i was saying that there's no way Kim wins a title so early after she starts playing.And i wasn't even talking about a Slam.She proved me so wrong.Nevertheless,i still doubt Kim's motivation about seriously continuing to play,but she's gonna be huge in 2010 AO.
4.Elena Dementieva-yet again,i'm desperately rooting for this girl,but her chances are quite unreal against what seems to be one of the strongest Slams in years.At least considering the draw.She can beat all of the four above-probably could choke on Justine,but she has to be on her top every point,or play 3-setter that ends 20-18 in her favour.She had great 2009 and great 2009AO failing to the eventual champ,so she can make it to the final,but it's more that i want it,than to beleive it.Out of all 4,she probably is the fittest.
5.Svetlana Kuznetsova-always an underdog,Svetlana just keeps on playing,not brilliant,but just good enough,to still be concidered a major threat.But i just cant see her making it past the quarters,unless the players above smack each other before the SF.

Vika Azarenka could make a hit here.

It would be interesting to see how will Ivanovic play.

My vote goes for Serena.

I agree with your 5, Acid, but I'd switch Kim and Justine and switch 'Lena and Sveta. Kim has to be the 2nd favorite since she's prove herself in her comeback. Justine wasn't playing well when she retired two years ago and it might take her a while to get going again (probably in time for the French though :annoyed: ). Sveta may be a head case, but you can't argue with her two slams. 'Lena, on the other hand, is a good bet to get deep in the tournament but also a good bet to choke once she gets here.

My #6 would be Maria btw.

I agree with Acid as well but switch 2 and 3. I don't see Venus on this list! :whistle: I think she is seriously being overlooked and she will sneak up and grab the title.

She doesn't deserve to be on it. If she does win, heck, come to Washington and I'll throw a party. :applause:

Great.I'll go to Melbourne Park,shoot,strangle,drawn,beat up and put on fire all the favourites and Venus will win.
Then we can all go to you Tog to celebrate the opening of the 2010 Tennis Elbow Chapmionship.We can even invite Venus as a special guest-after all we (i'll need a bit of help from u guys) provided her the title

(party)
