Who has the most

pressure on her to win the AO. I would say JJ, she the #1and has never won a major. She's going to be under tons of pressure to win this major and god forbid if she does not will it I fear what the headlines would read the next day.

Re: Who has the most

Re: Who has the most

No way does Venus have any pressure on her why would they be...she's never won it before and always goes out early in the tournament so I don't see how there's pressure on her. Like I said JJ has all the pressure on her and it might even hamper her performance in the tournament.

Re: Who has the most

JJ does have the most. Many people believe she's not derserving of that #1 ranking, So all eyes will be on her to see whether she can prove herself.

Dementieva. If she can't win here, on this kind of run, with no Sharapova present, she never will.

JJ has no pressure, I doubt she puts much pressure on herself. She herself has said, she would rather be #1 than be lucky for 2 weeks and win a slam. I think she wants to win one, but #1 is more a of a priority to her.

True, it is her only big singles accomplishment, so she is playing it out to be the best one to her. But then again JJ did work hard and got more muscle probably to try to win a slam this year. So she does have some pressure, but I do feel Venus and Elena have more pressure than her since to me they are the bigger favorites

Re: Who has the most

1. Jelena
2. Venus (just because she is the "clear favorite")
3. Elena (if not now, I don't think she will)

VENUS! And to worsen things, Venus is a known choker....
Dementieva is the clear favourite, but I think Venus might actually win (If she doesn't choke on her probable encounter with Serena in the semis...)

Re: Who has the most

1. Elena, If she doesnt win here, she probably wont get another chance and I'm sure she knows that
2. Venus, she is the favorite to win in many peoples eyes..... she says she doesnt pay attention to what other people say though....

long way down JJ, sorry, but noone actually expects her to win, so any pressure she feels shes putting on herself......(safina is also in this boat IMO)

Serena Williams

Madison Keys

a 7 time grand slam champion is a known choker..... If you say so.....

Venus has defended 3 Major titles... noone else in this generation has down that, and theres no pressure like being defending champion...
