ANYONE in a tournament CAN win it. You question is 'WILL" they, which calls for a prediction.
In both cases, the answer is no.
ASV, no way. Her form's been gone for years.
Monica is still good enough that she can beat anyone on the tour, IF that player is having a bad day. If she has to play Serena, Venus, Lindsay or Jenn and they have their normal days, forget it. And it would be 50-50 vs Henin, Clijsters or Mauresmo.
And she at a point in her career where she isn't improving.
The only players who can win ANOTHER GS title are the players who've already won one. That's a short list.
Monica Seles, Martina Hingis, Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Jennifer Capriati, Lindsay Davenport, Mary Pierce, Iva Majoli and Conchi.
WILL win another GS title
The only two players on that list defending a GS title AND who are still winning tournaments are Venus and Serena. To me, they are the ONLY two I'd risk saying will DEFINITELY win another GS title.
CLose but youhave to ask questions
Jenn won OZ this year, but hasn't won since.
Lindsay finished last year #1, and is a least back to top five level.
[Better than the rest, no threat to the best[/u]
[u]The draw would have to open up, but if it did...
Iva Majoli - see Charleston
[u]Waiting to see recovery from injury, but it looks doubtful
too far gone from their GS winning form
Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.
