Who will dominate the 2011 clay season?

Personally I'm leaning most towards "Everybody and nobody". Clay season looks very open to me.

Madison Brengle: "I'd rather chew on a pinecone than play this match (against Wozniacki)."
Nicole Melichar: "Do you want me to go find you one?"

Re: Who will dominate the 2011 clay season?

Stosur looked terrible losing to Safina. And Dinara is a good clay clourter.
Fran didnt look that good either. Sveta lost to McHale.
I dont know, but dont be surprised if Wozniacki wins Madrid and Rome

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Who will dominate the 2011 clay season?

She may be slightly sucking atm but I still think its Sam's season. She'll really get some form back once she hits the clay(although it'd be nice if it happened sooner ).

sam stosur. maria sharapova. jarmila gajdosova
dellacqua.kvitova.tomljanovic.safarova.

I wouldn't put too much into Fran and Sam slumping on hc, not yet. They're both best on clay and I expect at least a partial resurgence from them when they hit the dirt.

This.

There's no 'Nadal' on the WTA taking all the big clay court titles.

Caro & Kim have been dominating since Wimbledon winning all "Masters"/Majors. That's a pretty long hard court season btw. I suppose it could be time for some of the others to shine. But those two are still among the faves going into the clay court season.

Caroline Wozniacki

please, Dinara barely won 3 matches, still has major flaws in her game, has no serve... just finger crossed.

looks like too many players sucks right now, definitely some of them will find good form.

Probably Caro... It isn't her best surface but she has the tools to do well on it.

Re: Who will dominate the 2011 clay season?

Yeah, no one's dominating this clay season. WTA could use a really good, solid claycourter or two that can have consistent results... Though if I could choose, Fransexa/Sexlana would dominate

Re: Who will dominate the 2011 clay season?

Voted Kuznetsova and Ivanovic, but it might be Sam who steps it up instead.

Hope Wozniacki, but she will probably be completely exhausted by the time they hit the European courts.
