I was not thinking only about her,maybe a few others players can do really well in this Winbledon like Groenfeld,Ivanovic or peer.

Off the top of my head, I see three players going deep into the draw. Once it hits the semi's, anything is possible this year.

There is definitely a chance for a surprise victory. Lindsay and Serena are out, Pierce could be as well.

Off the top of my head, I can see Venus, Hingis, Clijsters, Sharapova, Kuzy and maybe Henin reaching the quarters (obviously dependant on their draws). Other than those players, there aren't really any consistent slam performers at the moment and there should be at least 3-4 places in the QF for some younger players.

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kiki Bertens, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Well it wont be Vaidisova. Unlike Sharapova Vaidisova has had a huge tournament at RG beating Mauresmo and Vee and if she plays a top player they will not underestimate her and take her out in straights. The smart money is on vee this yr

Grassonkova.

ALG for the title.
Surprise!

So then what word suffices for Graf, who through 1987 to 1993, played 26 slams and reached 21 finals (won 14), the semi-finals three times, the quarters twice. Not once in that period did she lose earlier.

ANNa-Lena

Remember she lost to O'Donoghue here last year

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

I think this is a really open tournament. The two recent champs in the draw - Maria and Venus - haven't looked very convincing and I think there's certainly the possibility of a suprise. That said, I still think one of: Maria, Venus, Justine, Sveta and Amelie will take it none of whom would be a huge shock. So, while we could see a suprise semi-finalist or finalist, I think the champion is going to be one of the usual suspects.

I'd be happy if one of, Maria Kirilenko, Maria Sharapova, Anna C, Daniela or Vaidisova were to win Wimbledon.
