I have a feeling there could be a surprise winner...

... meaning someone other than Justine, Amelie, Lindsay and Kim.

I was shocked and saddened that Venus lost. I was looking forward to a great potential match up between her and Kim.

Anyway, I think if there is going to be a surprise winner other than those four, it'll be Zvonareva. What say you?

Divas: Seles, Sharapova, Muguruza

Swan Lake, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Coppélia

Yeah, sure...Venus is out so it will be a suprise winner. I mean, it's very strange that Vee lost so it must be something wrong with the whole tournament...I think those favorite players doesn't have a chance to win this GS...

Alicia she has a chance against momo and when she gets past here she has a easy draw for the Q/F vs Kapros or Zuluago

I think I'd be surprised if Kim wins.

a surprise winner won't be zvonareva cos she has been consistent the whole of last year so it's not surprising... it's gotta be someone out of the top 20 to win...like molik...that'll be surprising!!!

Don't be deceived by the rankings!! Coria, Mirnyi, Schuettler, Fish, Safin, Henman, Tursunov, Wawrinka, Federer, Serena, Bovina, Li Na, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Sugiyama, Coetzer, Tanasugarn, Kumkhum, Zheng, Dokic and Kournikova are the world's best tennis players!!!

i was sad that venus lost but raymond played well and congrats to her. i was disappointed about sharapova losing, myskina is a good player and i thought it would have been a tough match but i did thinki sharapova would get through, i guess the bit that disappointed me the most was how the 3rd set went after having such a great 2nd set. still masha did well.

imo sharapova was the only possible surprise winner. but i think myskina has a bit of a chance now.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

If vera would win, that would be a huge surprise, it's not like she's been winnning big tournaments already.

JUSTINE H-H: 39 WTA-titles and counting...!


Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

I hope so, a surprise favourite would be great... I wonder if Myskina can grab it

Myskina has NEVER really impressed me. She seems to me like a seat-warmer for the next Russian #1.

Well said ! Myskina is a midge
I think the biggest surprised winner would be Mauresmo ... she has a very easy draw and winning at least a grand slam would be the biggest surprise of the year !
But I really have doubts ...
