If it were up to you

The big tournaments between now and the Olympics of 2012....

This is NOT a thread for making predictions. It's not about who you THINK will win these tournaments, but who you would LIKE to see win them. To make it possibly more interesting, because you'll have to list players other than your number one faves as a result, each player is only allowed to be your choice as the winner for TWO of these tournaments.

Considering that rule, who would you like to see as the winner of.....

Wimbledon 2011
US Open 2011
YEC 2011
Australian Open 2012
French Open 2012
Wimbledon 2012
Olympics 2012

Well, I want Wozniacki to win all seven. But you are forgiven since you give the USO to Wozzy.
