Biggest Australian Open Shock

Who in your own opinion will cause the biggest shock this year at the first Grand Slam of the year. I think Nicole Vaidisova May reach somewhere like the 4r or QF. I think Tatiana Golovin may go far somewhere like QF or even SF, Also Alicia Molik may suprise people by getting to the Final. I think the winner will be Maria Sharapova or depending on how fit they are Justine Henin Hardenne or Serena Williams.
I think you can never count out Amelie Mauresmo, Anastasia Myskina, Svetlana Kuznetsova or Venus Williams. But i think the women that have very little chance are Kim Clijsters, i doubt she will ever get back to full fitness, Elena Dementieva, I just dont think her game is good enough compared to the likes of JHH and SW.
Vera Zvonareva, Jennifer Capriati and Anyone ranked below 15 i dont count as a big threat. Maybeb JCap a little test for some higher ranked players.
What are your thoughts.

Kim will return and win the oz open now that would be shocking! I really like JHH and I think it would be amazing for her to come back and win the ozzie open.

Vaidisova will beat Serena and Henin-Hardenne, but lose to Sharapova in the finals.

i'm pretty sure Jankovic will reach at least QF, she really enjoys AO, she won it as junior, and i believe this is open is the one she can make all her glory

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

It won't be a shock when Serena wins the whole thing.
