Miami set for 'fifth slam'
Serena Williams will not have fatigue as an excuse if she fails to claim her third title of the year.
The American has played just 11 matches this year but, most importantly, has won all of them, collecting titles at the Australian Open and in Paris.
Her dominance stretches to a winning run of 29 of her last 30 matches, the defeat coming against Kim Clijsters in Los Angeles last November.
And it is Clijsters, rather than Venus Williams, who could pose the biggest threat to Serena.
Venus suffered her only defeat of the year against her younger sister in the Australian final and beat Clijsters in Antwerp a few weeks later.
But the Belgian has been busy this year, chalking up 21 wins and two titles.
Clijsters' comaptriot Justine Henin-Hardenne is seeded fourth but has made a disappointing start to 2003.
Daniela Hantuchova has made the biggest improvement this year, although she still looks some way short of troubling the Williams sisters.
I already wrote a mail to the BBC to react to this stupid article (firstname.lastname@example.org. ) I hope you fans also write something!
I was pretty upset when I read the article "Miami set for 'fifth slam'". Why does everybody has a problem with Justine Henin-Hardenne? After she was ignored in the Flemish press for months, the BBC also ignores her. Justine didn't start great this year? She played semis in Sydney, Australian open, Antwerp en won Dubaļ were she beat Myskina, Capriati and Seles.
Well I don't know what you guys expect more from her! She only lost to players ranked above her! And don't forget that this is here worst surface!
I hope you all are going to treat her the way she desevers it!
