Order The Top 10's Chance of Winning US Open

It's almost a given that Serena will win the US Open if she plays she way she did at Wimbledon. Just for arguements sake though, order the top 10 from most likely to least likely of winning the Open.


1. Serena (DUH)

2. Venus (DUH again)
3. Jennifer

4. Martina
5. Lindsay

6. Monica
7. Justine
8. Kim
9. Jelena
10. Amelie

This is assuming the top 10 remains the same by the time the US Open rolls around.

It really depends on how martina and lindsay play when they get back. practicing is a lot different than an actual match.

I think the devastation of venus is good. She was devastated when serena won the us 99 open and look what happened? Hopefully after losing her crown to serena she will realize she will have to work a lot harder to play her sister than before. Before serena would self destruct, well she's over that apparently. Now venus needs to get over being too overprotective. Serena has a mom to do that she doesnt need her sister to be her mom.

I would put Hantuchova ahead of Amelie and Jelena. Only a couple of people can beat Serena when they are at their best, so it looks like we're in for another Serena victory.

venus at 6, you've got to be kidding me right?? she lost to sister twice, venus is playing far better than last year, it's not as if her level of play has decreased, it's just her sister has improved.
Venus apart form serena would beat all the players you put ahead of her in straigt sets comfortabaly. lol

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

Ok i am officially putting villa on my ingnore list. I really don't want to keep hearing his incessant venom towards all players without the last name Williams. Oh and Venus is not playing better than last year. Her serve is way off, and her forehand is not quite as good.

LMAO @ Selesrules. You have Seles at 2 and say it is over for Venus for losing the Wimbledon final. If I can recall, Seles lost to Juju and Venus kicked the shit out of Juju. You are so insane...

Do you realize that it is people like you (who incesantly critizise others opinions) that makes this board sickening at times? I mean I hate to break it to you but the era of Williams domination WILL come to an end, and maybe sooner than we think (or maybe not so soon) MODERATOR EDIT While I personally think that Monica does not have the second best shot at winning the title, I also don't feel that venus has the second best shot, but I don't say LMAO villa your so stupid how could you say that? I mean come on, we are not little children. We can respect other people right? My advice to you two is grow up and get some manners.
