Who will be dangerous floaters at Australian Open 2007?

Of the players who won't be (or probably won't be) seeded I say the following people could be dangerous floaters at AO 2007 ...

Michaella Krajicek (unless she increases her ranking to a seed)
Eleni Daniilidou (unless she increases her ranking to a seed)
Meghann Shaughnessy (unless she increases her ranking to a seed)
Elena Likhovtseva
Venus Williams (if she plays)
Nathalie Dechy
Shuai Peng
Tsvetana Pironkova
Sania Mirza
Serena Williams
Alicia Molik

defo Serena, she was a 'floater' at the US open and beat two seeded players and took the world number 1 to three sets giving her a bagel, im sure none of the top women will want serena as a 1st round

Re: Who will be dangerous floaters at Australian Open 2007?

Alicia Molik for sure. she always rises to the ocassion whenever she plays in Australia crowd always gives her that boost to succeed & she just gives 100% effort on the court.

Serena Williams. u can never underestimate her. no matter what condition she's in or what ranking she's at she's always determined to make a statement on the court & the 2007 AO will be no different.

I also reckon Vesnina, Peng, Kanepi, A.Radwanska & Sprem will be dangerous floaters apart from the two I just mentioned. I also forgot bout Venus, if she plays of course.

Oh yes, how could we forget Iroda! Also, Ashley could upset a player or two if she gets some confidence out of the Hopman Cup.

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

Re: Who will be dangerous floaters at Australian Open 2007?

I forgot about Sprem as well. Mind you she will just miss the lines by about 2 metres so all her opponent has to do is keep the ball into play

An in-form Safarova is also very dangerous as we saw at Gold Coast 2006
