Is it safe to say now that the AO 2007 winner will be either Sharapova or Clijsters?

OUT: Justine, Venus, Myskina
RETIRED: Davenport
STRUGGLING: Hingis, Serena, Mauresmo

There's still Petrova, Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Jelena and Patty, but Sharapova is the favourite to win her 3rd Slam, and Clijsters is on form at the right moment.

So I guess either one of them have one hand on the title already... correct?

i dont think Hingis and Mauresmo are struggling like Serena is... they aren't in the same category.

Sharapova and Clijsters seem to have the best chance but don't count out Jankovic.

Hingis isn't strong enough to get past the Quarters.

Re: Is it safe to say now that the AO 2007 winner will be either Sharapova or Clijsters?

clijsters and jankovic are the form players.
sharapova has a couple of matches under her belt and she doesnt necessarily need that many to be able to play well.
but i'm not sure if jankovic can make a slam final yet, so it would be pretty much down to sharapova and clijsters

petrova and kuznetsova have injury problems so won't figure.
mauresmo hasnt had many matches and says she is unprepaed.
hingis still loses to practically any big hitter.
serena will do rubbish, she hasnt had many matches and hasnt played against a top player.

It is safe to say that it will be ONE or the OTHER. I will be shocked if Mauresmo defends her title.Mauresmo is too inconsistent. I fear Mauresmo maybe just like Novotna after she won Wimbledon almost a decade ago. Mauresmo may feel like all the pressure is off and I don't think the motivation will be the same. Mauresmo can now retire as a champion. Clijsters and Sharapova are much more consistent then Mauresmo I really believe those two are the ONLY real contenders.
