So who will emerge from this sh!t field to win gold at the Olympics?

So with Sharapova, Ivanovic, Kuznetsova, Radwanska, Chakvetadze, Hantuchova, Bartoli, Szavay, Pennetta, Vaidisova, Petrova, Davenport, Kirilenko and Golovin all out and Henin retired, who will finally emerge from this decimated sh!tfest of a field to win the gold??? Here are the remaining top players:

1. Jelena Jankovic
2. Serena Williams
3. Dinara Safina
4. Elena Dementieva
5. Venus Williams
6. Vera Zvonareva
7. Patty Schynder
8. Victoria Azarenka
9. Alize Cornet
10. Dominika Cibulkova
11. Caroline Wozniaki
12. Shahar Peer
ALSO: Jie Zheng

I myself am rooting for Wozniacki and Cilbulkova at this point

'decimated sh!tfest' is a bit of an exaggeration! There are still some quality players in there.

I'd say a Williams will do it - I hope a Williams will do it...but you never know.

Venus Williams
Serena Williams

Yes, I'm definitely exaggerating, but it's fun to exaggerate sometimes.... especially when all your top favs are out

But yeah, any of Serena, Venus, Jankovic or Safina would be deserving of the gold.

So far I think Venus is stamping herself as the firm favourite now based on this match. If she manages to close it easily like 6-1 6-3 then I really cannot see her losing to anyone. I am hoping Lena can beat Rena in the QF though!

There are a plenty of good players still in the draw!
Williams, Williams, Dementieva, Safina, Zvonareva, and Li are my favourites to win the whole thing

Venus, THE QUEEN
Serena THE WARRIOR
Miss you Monica Wynne Angie Anna Chakvy Marion Li Na
Good luck: Svetlana Simona

Even with all these players in Venus would still win.The only real threat to her was Henin.Kuznetsova looses to every player who has some talent and Ivanovic is only a contender for a second round lately.all the other you mention are frequently

Safina to become a serious contender for #1 after the US Open.

Eugenie Bouchard - Naomi Osaka

and a reminiscence to the past:
HELEN KELESI FOREVER
Hater of Radwanska & Wozniacki

Venus will win if she doesn't have to face Serena. But if its an All Williams Final (which looks very likely, especially considering Serena's extremely light top half of the draw), little sis is winning the gold.

I really only see Safina being Venus' Competition to get to the final. Shes really a great player. To bad all the good players left are in the bottom half for Venus lol

A Venus- Dinara match is something Id like to see. They never played each other before.
