I don't see a poll, but I'm glad to have her back. Realistically, she's not winning this Open. Can she win a few rounds? Most definitely. Cause an upset or two? For sure, but to think that she's going to go all the way is pretty slim to none.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

Less of a chance than the Williams's, Sharapova and most of the top 10's, but way more of a chance that most players ranked less than #10.

I like the first two options

I'd go for something in between the third and the fourth options - definitely better than the lower seeds, but worse than those of Serena/Venus.

Re: How Would you characterize Davenport's Chances of taking home the Aussie Open 08?

shes only lost one match, and that was agains the world number three.... so its hard to say really, we dont know how she wil peform against the top 10 players.

i would put her as a chance above dani and marion, but below the williamses in the rankings... so maybe my 8th fave?

She has as much chance as the rest of the top10, excluding Justine, Venus, Serena & Sharapova.

If we're talking about winning the whole thing, I'd say Lindsay has a better chance than Anna as well.

Agreed. Since when did the WS have same chance of the Serbs?

With JJ somewhat injured and Ana playing quite unpredictably Im not sure they are as big a threat as their rank suggests

Very little chance to win, but a good chance to beat a few seeds and make the quarters

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

I dont think she will win it, but she could get pretty far.

Re: How Would you characterize Davenport's Chances of taking home the Aussie Open 08?

I love the fact we are having this debate. The way Lindsay has played lately let's hope the draw gods shine on her come Friday's draw and she doesn't end up playing Justine in the first round. But having said as well as Lindsay's played lately she has only played on top ten player in that time twice and it was the same player for a win and loss. I am biggest Lindsay fan and even I don't think she can win the oz open but having said that Serena won last year ranked 81 so you never know what might happen. I would love to be proven wrong too,

How about waiting for the draw to come out?
