Clijsters is most likely out, so she isn't on the poll, justine may not play, and same with venus although this is a good chance for lindsay

No chance that Justine will win it. You can't just waltz into a Grand-Slam and win it. I think that Serena or Venus will win it 100% sure about it. Unless, of course Venus is not 100% healthy.

If Venus´s ankle can properly recovered....then it is lights out for everybody else. Don´t like Serena´s chances, because she seems to have lost her clay-skills like overnight....although her loss was injury-induced. If she can make a run at Rome then she becomes a top favourite too.

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

I hope that Venus will win it. She came so close in '02. She didn't lose a set before the final and Serena just mauled her. However, I think that Serena has the best chance to win, becuase, like one of the posters said, her sole loss this year was injury induced, meaning that when she is healthy, hardly anyone has the skills to beat her. I dunno, like any and all Williams fans, I'd like to see a three set all Williams final! But in my heart I think Serena will win.

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.
Been around the world, copped all 4 thrice.

Serena.[21]

I don't know why, i have this feeling MOMO could win it. I'm always very skeptical in what concerns MOMO, and I don't even like her that much, but I think something is different, this time

I want see Vera Zvonareva,Anastasya Myskina or Masha Sharapova win it but I think they can't do it this year!
The winner would probably be Mauresmo or Serena (Venus and Hénin are not 100 % healthy)

Maria Sharapova
Krunic~~ Ivanovic ~~ Jovanovski ~~ Stojanovic~Jorovic
Putintseva~~Robson ~~Hingis~~ Svitolina ~~ Pavlyuchenkova~~ Rybarikova~~ Halep~~Pervak~~Kulichkova~~Kirilenko~~Mladenovic
Bencic~~Voegele~~Jankovic~~Zvonareva~~Karolina Pliskova ~~Krystina Pliskova

I hope that Henin will win...I'm not optamistic of her chances, given her lack of match play on clay, but one can always dream!

My back-up favorites for the tournament will be Lindsay (complete that career slam baby!) and Momo (get the monkey off, please!).

I want Lindsay to win, and i think this is her greatest chance to do it , well if Venus is healthy, i would have to say she is the top favorite just because she has been playing great, and if Serena's knee is ok, which i heard it is, and if she does well in Rome, which i think she will, i think she can be considered a fav just because its Serena, and also Jen who is finding her form, and MoMo who played great in AI and Berlin.

There is a huge difference between who I want to win and who I think will win.

I want Monica to win if she can play and be healthy.

I think Davenport will win.
