Who do you think will provide the main challenge to Justine this year?

I see the main threat as being being Venus Williams. No where near the standard she was playing at the end of 2001 and start of 2002, but I thin she's the most realistic challenger.

Re: Who do you think will provide the main challenge to Justine this year?

I think any of the first 7 up there could on their good days.

But I'm really hoping Sharapova can beat her, Id love that

GO ALICIA MOLIK

I'd like to see a young, new top ten player like Ana or Anna challenge everyone for slams this year.

Nicole Vaidisova
Caroline Wozniacki
Victoria Azarenka
Daniela Hantuchova
Alicia Molik, Olivia Rogowska, Sam Stosur + All Other Aussies

Re: Who do you think will provide the main challenge to Justine this year?

hopefully both Serena and Venus will be able to maintain a sustained challenge towards Justine this year, instead of only playing in sporadic fits and starts.

that's what i hope for anyway, whether i get it is another matter entirely

Re: Who do you think will provide the main challenge to Justine this year?

I think this major will tell who the challenger is.
If Justine wins this one, that's 3 of 4, and heading into RG, she's going for 4 in a row there.
So if Justine wins the AO, she's by herself.

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

Re: Who do you think will provide the main challenge to Justine this year?

I would have said Sharapova, but now I'm definitely leaning towards Venus to be the principal challenger.
