Who is going to be Queen of Clay 2012?

Who is going to dominate clay in 2012?

Will there be a domination of one or two players or will it be pretty random as in recent years?

Can Vika, Aga and Maria maintain their 2012 primacy or will someone else steal the limelight?

Will someone new take advantage of the lack of clay talent at the top and shake the world order of tennis?

Will past clay stars like Jankovic, Kuznetsova or Ivanovic revive their careers on this surface? Can Stosur, Goerges, Schiavone or Li Na maintain their good form of recent times?

Re: Who is going to be Queen of Clay 2012?

Federer

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Stosur if she can keep her head on. Her clay game can beat anyone on the tour, and I believe it's good enough to dispose of her 6ft blonde nemesi. She needs to believe it herself.

Nobody. I suspect they will share honours out between them, much as they did last year.

Even if one of them does have a good run, it takes more than one good season season to be called a Queen of Clay.

Amazing how split this poll is, looks like there is no clear favourite and it is all to play for......
