Now that Schiavone has a grandslam championship, who else?
You wouldn't bet against Flavia Penetta for Wimbledon. She moves well on the grass and hits some clean, flat strokes. At 28, she is also young and still improving.
On the US hard courts, I really think Marion Bartoli is in with a shot at her first grandslam title. She won Stanford last year, and seems to enjoy a regular fast bounce. She'll the one to watch.
Shahar Peer is without a doubt a contender on any clay court, and I can see her lifting the French Open trophy in maybe 5 years time. Or Alize Cornet, when her form recovers.
At the Australian Open, perhaps Anna Chakvetadze will emerge revitalised in time for next year's tournament.
There are endless, and exciting, possibilities.
