This could be Elena D's Grand Slam to win
With Kim, Serena, Venus, Maria, JHH, Amelie, Nadia and Lindsay all with possible injury or less than 100%, the '06 AO Grand Slam is a HUGE opportunity for someone to step up to the plate.
In my opinion, that player is Elena D. I hope she's practicing hard somewhere for this.
Two other Russians - Kuznetsova and Myskina both lack match play and are both not at the level they were at when they won their GS titles.
Dementieva has the game to do it and the experience of walking out in court in a GS final (twice !).
If not her, i can see Vaidisova making a breakthrough to the final.
thoughts on this huge opportunity ?
