who will win miami?

there is definitly a grand slam line up with nearly all the top players playing. but who will take the step and win the title? bear in mind justine might not be playing due ti injury(dont know yeat).
basically these are the quastions you need to ask yourself when voting on the poll.
can amelie the new #1 cope with the pressure of being the new best player and will she survive the tough field to win?
will kim make a great comeback from injury and defend her title?
will justine get over her knee injury in time and continue her winning ways?
will sharapova continue her stunning form and improvement and make another breakthrough win, its worth noting she played very well in the wind in miami.
will lindsay make a great comeback over her back injury and surprise everyone?
will hingis shock the tennis world?
or will an upcoming player like vaidisova or ivanivic or kirilenko come through?
or will the other russians and hantuchova make a strike?

also why do you think the player will win

sharapova has surprised me so much last week in indian wells, and if she continues her great form i think shell finally get a win off the likes of justine and kim, and surprise everyone by winning.

if maria wins i'll be impressed...only kim and steffi have done the IW/miami double, meaning it's just way hard, so i'd just say odds are against it...
thinking about justine's results just makes me feel unsettled inside, i can't explain it, it's nothing like horrible or anything, but i'm just confused big time, so i'll not pick her
lindsay has been a bit off recently, and it's one of her least favorite events, so not her
hingis isn't ready yet, and the young ones, et al. are not ready yet
gotta think it's kim or amelie in my opinion...

i picked kim because i prefer her of the two and i'm counting on her being fully fit, if she's not 100% i'd think amelie

It will always be Arantxa, hall of famer! and martina hingis and kim clijsters - amazing legends
ana ivanovic and the italian girls, especially pennetta (forza azzurre! RG CHAMP FRANCESCA AND FINALIST SARA!)
aga, vika, sam, na in the next tier
NEVER say "I don't care who wins, I just want good tennis"

I say Amelie as she's fresh and rested. But I don't know how Kim's playing right now or if that injury's still a problem. I say it's either gonna be Kim, Amelie or Masha.

I think its pretty wide open. As a Kim fan would love to see her win it, but I can't honestly see it happening - her fitness and match play levels being open to severe questioning. In addition to the fitness/injury problems, Kim has looked disappointingly unmotivated in recent months. I only hope that's the result of the little injury niggles and nothing more deep seated

Patiently waiting to join the silver surfers
