Just like 2005

Serena won Australian open, Justine the French, and Venus Wimbledon.
Now that Kim is no longer playing, I wonder who gets the Us Open?

Re: Just like 2005

It could be Venus again. She's still on the roll in 2005, leading the match solidly until Clijsters fought back on crucial points and finally beat her.

Re: Just like 2005

Wasn't that Kim's first slam victory? hmmmm.....someone like Ivanovic or Vaidisova might grab their first slam.

Re: Just like 2005

I think that 2007 is confirming to us that when future generations look back on the first decade of the new millenium, they'll see that:
Serena Williams was Queen of Melbourne
Justine Henin was Queen of Roland Garros
Venus Williams was Queen of Wimbledon
Three great champions and each one should get respect for what she has achieved.

Only The Queen of Flushing Meadow for the decade has yet to be finalised:

Venus is the only woman to have won two titles there this decade, though Serena won in 99 as well as 02.
Kim's gone.
Sveta, Masha and Justine have one title each and are all top 5 players.
With the 07, 08 & 09 championships still to take place, the race is on!

Traits Gandhi considered the most spiritually perilous to humanity.
*Wealth without Work * Pleasure without Conscience

*Science without Humanity *Knowledge without Character

*Politics without Principle *Commerce without Morality

*Worship without Sacrifice

Re: Just like 2005

No, it will go to one of the 2005 semifinalists since Kim and Mary are both not playing. So Sharapova or Dementieva, and no way in hell is it Dementieva.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Just like 2005

I think one of the Serbs or Czechs will break through.

Unless Sharpie defends again. I wouldn't count out Serena or Venus either.

In 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005, the RG runner-up was the USO runner-up Sveta ruined it last year

Anyway, I hope Serena will win it

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena
