Preview


The Favourites








Molik is going for an astounding 5th final in a row here, and following her comprehensive win in Sydney last week, she looks well on course to achieve this goal, she remains so strong on plexi, it will take an inspired performance to stop her. MK is in the form of her career having won two titles already, she's positioned herself well to finally win a Slam, she just needs to hope luck is with her and the title could be hers, and finally Sharapova has just one ace, but she's using it wisely and should beat most of the other players in the field, can she take out the top faves though? I'm not so sure.


The Contenders








Ivanovic is a newcomer but has 4 aces and has already claimed some big scalps, namely Molik a few weeks ago, if she gets a nice draw, she could surprise and steal the title. Spears has been the model of consistency so far this season but has fallen short in the later rounds, she too will have to hope someone else takes out the top dogs to win the title, Serena reached the final in the Gold Coast, her game will prove tricky for most, but whether she can put 4 good wins together remains to be seen.


The Dark Horses






The Dangerous Floaters






My prediction for who will win the title?
