No Kim. Who is the closest to her, Jankovic?

Re: Who will win the US Open?

Some people will be healthy, some not. Since we don't know which is which, it's hard to make a pick. Objectively, you have to make Serena the favorite. But right now, there are eight or nine players with a chance.

Serena
Venus
Henin
Mauresmo
Sharapova
Kuznetsova
Jankovic
Ivanovic
Vaidisova

That list includes FIVE past champions.

We really gotta wait for the US Open series to be completed. I doubt all nine of those players are even going to be at Flushing Meadow.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

If Bartoli can lose about 10 pounds in 2 months and work extremely hard on her fitness, than you can add her to the list as well.

tHERE ALREADY IS ONE OF THESE THREADS ELSEWHERE.

Quote:
I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.
