The favourites for the title include Gisela Dulko, Nicole Vaidisova and Serena Williams. But with all the girls training hard and wanting it so much, anyone could walk away with the trophy. As for doubles, Schnyder/Ivanovic and Sharapova/Stosur have clearly established themselves as the top 2 pairs. Will Ivanovic/Schnyder make it a clean Aussie sweep or can someone stop them?

Articles from Sydney:-

Sharapova - 5

Capriati – 2
S.Williams – 2
Golovin - 1
Kirilenko – 1
Moore - 1

Congratulations to Sharapova and Vaidisova who wrote the (joint) most articles last week during Sydney, and as a reward will win every CT in their singles matches this week as they search for their first Grand Slam.

Venus Ready For First Grand Slam



After a strong start to the season in OWTT, Venus Williams says that she is ready to give all she has to do well at the first grand slam of the year.

"All I can say is that I am ready. Ready to play here in Australia. I had a tough first round exit at my last event, but I'm so over that and ready to play some good tennis here in Melbourne."

Venus Williams

GV - Back From The Dead.........
Venus better have her hair fixed for the AO I'm just tired of it.

Re: S1 Week 3, Australian Open, AUS, GS

Oh no. A wild card in the first round. Hopefully the wild cards are not as good here as they were in Sydney.

Good Luck to:
Vaidisova
Moore
Venus
Sharapova
