Exclamation Belgians: Heavy Favorites For Australian-Open-Title

Isn't it weird: Two Years ago they were both retired and now they go into the first Slam of the year as the heavy favorites for the title. Although you gotta admit that there's not too much competition in absence of Serena.

For most bookmakers (and journalists) Justine and Kim are the big favorites for the title.

To me Venus is 3rd followed by Maria (even with her bad results recently). I'm surprised that Petra Kvitova is so high...
The biggest "dark horse" should be Ana Ivanovic. Always very dangerous.

This is the SPORTBET bookmaker ranking:

K Clijsters 3.00
J Henin 5.50
C Wozniacki 8.50
V Zvonareva 11.00
V Azarenka 15.00
S Stosur 15.00
M Sharapova 19.00
V Williams 21.00
N Li 23.00
S Kuznetsova 34.00
P Kvitova 34.00
A Ivanovic 36.00
A Petkovic 36.00
A Kleybanova 51.00
Y Wickmayer 67.00
J Jankovic 76.00
F Schiavone 91.00
M Bartoli 91.00
D Cibulkova 101.00
A Pavlyuchenkova 101.00
S Peer 126.00
M Kirilenko 126.00

Not much different at all the other bookmakers.
