Well, it changes of the Cibulkova-A. Bondarenko hype of the previous years.

What a fool. He does realize that her semifinal run in the US Open was entirely draw-driven, right? She basically beat the kind of players you'd beat to win a good tier IV.

Eh, give her credit. She capitalized on the draw and others in her section didn't. She did play great to beat Kateryna too.

However now she has the Wertheim curse

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!

He may have meant darkhorse to cause some upsets and get far not necessarily win, though i think he meant the latter xD

Wickmayer is good, but not at that level yet, however we know that Serena will probably not win, so it's possible, it's not that she can't beat the top 10. The eventual winner won't be one of the top 8 seeds.

I would say Clijsters should be as big a favorite as Serena in Australia, but only the shadow knows.

Why not? If anything, she's the top favourite. She's the defending champion, she'll probably be ranked #1 (and be the top seed), and it's by far the slam she's most successful at (and the one where she's had the most dramatic comebacks and ruthless final demolitions). So unless they actually ban her from playing it, I think she's the clear favourite. Unless of course, you're going by her "every odd year" trend at the Australian Open.

That said, I hope she doesn't win. I want Venus or Kim to win it.

She lost in the first round last year, so she could do some more rising in the ranks

No she won´t win because she never, never win in even years...

2004 - didn´t even could to go defend, Kneerena
2006 - lost to Hantuchova in straight sets in R3, Fatrena
2008 - lost to Jankovic, when Serena played one of the worst matches of her life, Errorena
2010 - ???
