the year isnt over yet, a lot of the russians have the potential to catch her. zvonareva, petrova, sharapova, safina, krasnoroutskaya, douchevina, kirilenko. they all have heaps of talent. some of them arent ready imo (kirilenko, douchevina, safina) but some of them could really push kuzie for the award and sprem also has a lot of potential she could suddenly have a run.
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.
