6. JHH has yet to fully recover from her virus
7. And VENUS
most of the remaining top players
that she has faced.
8. Her serve has improved
9. She has the greatest fan support
on the tour
10. Finally, she is probably dedicating this year to her deceased sister
That's why I
think that VENUS
will take the RG title this year.
1)She is phisically better now yes, at least she has been able to finish matches and tournaments.
2)She is playing better, still not sure yet if it will be enough to win a slam, she has played better in previous years i think and still has not won one since 01.
3)I think its the same as the second, Venus is playing well, but definetly she is not a clay courter, i would not say she is becoming a claycourt especialist IMO, still her talent allows her to beat any player on this surface.
4)This is something you don`t know, you`ll have to wait for Serena to play in Rome and see if she shows there, right now I THINK she withdrew from the Charlesston and Fed Cup due to prevention, at least she did not played that many long matches as she won her matches with ease in Amelia Island and the one in Charleston and also lost easily to Petrova, i just don`t think she reinjured her knee. Still Rome will tell.
5)Well see about Kim in Berlin, she played fed cup and won some good matches.
6)At least yes, but with Henin you never know, right now she is a Question Mark, i think the next few weeks will be crucial for Justine.
7)Well i think her wins over Vera Zvonareva, Conchita and today over Kuznetsova are great, but still none of this players have been close to win the Grand Slams lately, even with the Williams sisters out.
8)Her serve improved?..hmm have to see it, it`s hard because Venus has had always great pace on her serve, still we have to see how her second serve is doing, anyway on clay this does not matter as much as on other surfaces.
9)I won`t comment on this this... depends where she is playing.
10)Well, who knows probably is Serena who showed her how to win an event after coming from such a long lay off
. None the less to win a slam recently
