Re: Will 2007 still be "wide open"???
Wait, I forgot to mention the williams sisters, and Hingis. I think the williams sisters will make something of a comeback. I don't think they'll ever be as good as they once were again, but they will reach the later stages of tournaments, and pose problems to the current top players. There are big question marks over their fitness, and its difficult to really say much about them. I definitely think they'll have a much better 2007, and will be playing more often.
Hard to see where hingis fits in. Definite top ten, maybe top five. Slam contender? Not sure. I'd like to see her continue from where she left off at the YEC, where she really showed the ability to compete with the very best. Can she improve enough to beat them more often? I really hope so. She'll definitely have occasional big wins, but I don't know how consistently she can beat the top-brass. I think she's getting the hang of the power game, and adapting, but i'm not sure she'll ever be able to really get the better of it. She'll definitely be a top competitor though.
