First time watching a slam without a favorite player to root for...
I will now see how much I love tennis as a sport...this will be the first slam since Lindsay has retired. I of course miss her and everything just seems weird without her, but I'm going to try to enjoy the tennis itself. It's really the first time I can look at things unbiased-ly. I can say honestly that I think Justine is the best in the world, followed by Sharapova then Clijsters. Since Justine's not here, I expect Kim and Sharapova to meet in the semis, and in the other semi...who knows. Amelie could lose in the first round, or make it to the final easily...same with Dementieva. I just want to see some good match-ups. I miss the old days where we were promised exciting quarterfinal matches, and now we're lucky to get good matches in the final! Here's to hoping for some good, high-quality, dramatic tennis!!
Mary Pierce-----Monica Seles-----Martina Hingis
