U.S. Open who will win it? Early predictions here

What are your early predictions for the U.S. Open???

Will JJ finally get her slam???

Will Maria show the desire she showed down under?

Will Ana blaze her way to her second slam?

Will Lindsay catch fire?

Will Serena or Venus continue their form?

Marion will make up for her crappy year and disappointing me so much by winning the US open

Dementieva in my opinion could have won the French and the US Open in 04.

Venus and Serena

Re: U.S. Open who will win it? Early predictions here

Dementieva's serve is much better. However, it still isn't a weapon but it isn't as big of a weakness now. Did anyone besides me see her muscles?? She is really fit

Re: U.S. Open who will win it? Early predictions here

whoever loses on Saturday has a big chance IMHO. Especially if Serena loses, I can see her extra-motivated to win in US.

Your statement is actualy "against all odds" because in all 7 seasons so far when Williams sisters both played this two tournaments - sister with better result at Wimbledon ALWAYS have better result at USO than her sister!

For me personaly both sisters will be serious contenders for title whatever happen in next couple days. I dont see former USO champion Sharapova to choke again like last season or here in Wimbledon so she will be also top contender for USO. Unlike with Wimbledon, US Open should be best shot for Jankovic and Kuznetsova (together with RG) to win some slam. Also dont forget former runnerup Dementieva which improved finaly her serve this season and plays close to her career best tennis.

And of course i must to mentouned current WTA#1 Ana Ivanovic. USO is her by far worst slam if we look career results, but she at same surface already won one tier-I and tier-II event (Montreal and L.A.) and she is also overall winner of US Open 2006 series... But last prediction about Ana i will send after Beijing - with medal she will probably sucks again in New York, and with OG disappointment she will probably rocks week after at USO

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Even with all the hate Chaky may get, you still support her and don't back down when haters bash her. I admire and respect that about you. Shows you're a true fan. Props.
