If the Williams sister are fully fit by Wimbledon, I doubt Justine will win Wimbledon, but I do think it could be Kim's year to win a GS

I think it's more likely for Justine to win Wimbledon.. Once the Williams sisters are back in the field it will be tough for both the Belgians, tough for Kim to even make a final possibly.. but Justine wants that Wimbledon really bad, it's all that's missing.

"On the coin toss Martina said, "Do you want me to break your serve first or hold?" The umpire looked shocked. But we just both cracked up."
Lindsay Davenport, on a match she played with Martina Hingis.

Elena Dementieva
Justine Henin
Jennifer Capriati
Lindsay Davenport
Daniela Hantuchova
Kim Clijsters
Chanda Rubin

If the Williams comes back in full force, there's really very little chance Kim will even make the finals. Kim has never gotten past a Williams in 3 tries.

Of those two scenarios, I'd have to say that Justine winning Wimbledon is more likely because (a) she's proven she can win a major, (b) the Big W would complete her career Grand Slam and (c) Kim's best shot to win will always be in Australia. IF las soeurs Williams are in match shape by Wimbledon (which, unfortunately, is a big IF nowadays), however, they both can, as Stefano Capriati might say, "fugheddabouddit!"

Kim will win a grand slam! Kim played a 4 Gs finals. The next time She will probably win.
Justine will not to win Wimbledon because She isn't so good on the grass!!

what???!!!!???? Are you seriously saying this? Yes she's great on BOTH green and red clay surfaces and she's improved on hard, but grass is definitely among her best surfaces. She's made the semis three years in a row (and made the final in 2001). She's only lost to two people in the last three years.

1. Justine has also played in four Grand Slam finals. The difference is, she won three of them.

2. Justine is 16-4 (.800) at Wimbledon, whereas Kim is 14-5 (.737). If Justine "isn't so good" on grass, then what does that make Kim?

Justine won a 3 GS, She had never win at Wimbledon. She is best player on the clay(red and green).

The Williams sisters were better than Justine on grass (at least I hope so!)!
But, I don't think Kim was ever better than Justine on grass.
