4-0 Jankovic v. Dementieva in grand slams, if not 5-0 (cuz of AO), omg

But other than that, that'd be a cool final.

Re: 2009 Grand Slam Predictions

austalia: serena (she plays well on the surface and is looking fit and focused after her US open win)
french: henin (i have a feeling she'll be back... they all come back)
wimbledon: venus (bet against her at the big W at your own peril)
us open: serena/sharapova (sharapova will be starving by then, but who knows how that shoulder will hold up. her forehand is just too high, i dont think she'll ever recover)

Re: 2009 Grand Slam Predictions

It's too hard to say, but Serena is the favorite for Australia, although honestly I would be so excited if Venus won an Australian Open. I'd also be happy if Serena won another French Open.
