Question Do You Think One of Bridesmaids Kim, Amelie, Lena D Will Finally Win GS at Wimby 05?

OK there are 16 women left but it is pretty clear that there are 9 have a realistic shot of taking the Wimbledon title. Of those, we can split into two groups.

PREVIOUS SLAM CHAMPS

Lindsay
Sveta
Nastya
Venus
Mary
Maria

and then there are the

BRIDESMAIDS

Kim
Amelie
Lena D

At Roland Garros, all 3 collapsed when they had a good chance to at least reach the final. I really hope that this is the Grand Slam that one of them can break through.

If I can't have Venus win, I am so rooting for Kim. I would love for her to get a slam and what a first slam to get.

If Kim beats Lindsay I'd say she has a very good chance.
As much as I like Amelie, I've stopped hoping she'll win a Slam. So it's her turn to surprise me.
Dementieva will not win Wimbledon.

Same here.

I feel confident that the winner of Davenport vs. Clijsters will face Sharapova in the final and have a very good crack at her.

(Then again, I've been known to be wrong A LOT.)

I browse once in a while.

I've pretty much thrown in the towel, as I don't think Lena d. will get by her bete noire, Nastya.

Please don't kill me, fellow Lena fans.

IMO, the Russians are way over-rated (apart from Sharapova). Therefore, of the 3 bridesmaids, the only contenders in my mind are Momo and Kim. But I don't see either of them winning.

Venus and Serena are sitting on top of the WORLD

Quite possible. The likeliest one of them is Amelie, I think. But the draw is now SOOO top-heavy, that you just have to like Sharapova's odds.
Look at it this way..

Kim's possible path to the trophey:

Davenport-Kuznetsova-Mauresmo-Sharapova

Every player is either a recent Slam winner or very recent #1

Amelie's possible path:

Likhovtseva-Dementieva-Davenport-Sharapova


Dementieva's path:

Myskina-Mauresmo-Davenport-Sharapova

Every player is either a recent Slam winner or very recent #1


It is very tall order for Kim and Elena. It is somehat easier for Amelie.

Compare it to Sharapova's path:

Dechy-Petrova-Venus-Davenport

No wonder they shortened her odds of winning to 1-2. They are giving her almost 50% of a chance. By comparison, they give Clijsters less than 20%, Davenport - less than 15%, Mauresmo - around 10%, Venus - less than 10%, Kuznetsova - around 5%. Other's chances are considered insignificant.
