Australian Open 2013 - Last Minute PreTournament Calls

dissect the players chances and establish your own theories of who's going to do what and who's really going to lift the daphne akhurst trophy at the australian open 2013 grandslam tournament......


edit: other = sharapova

Radwanska and Kvitova as poll options, and Sharapova not as a poll option.

I understand you want to keep it short, but why choose Radwanska/Kvitova over Sharapova. I can't

Azarenka is the favourite, followed by Sharapova.

Hopefully Serena stays fit and injury free.

Re: Australian Open 2013 - Preliminary Dissection

-Serena's been the one to beat (losing, what, 1 match since the French Open?). Plus it's an odd year.
-Azarenka and Sharapova both have a shot to go all the way, but I don't see either of them beating Serena if they meet.
-If Kvitova has a productive off-season I could see her surprising everyone.

Other than those four I don't see any serious title contenders. Radwanska or Kerber could make a run to the semis with the right draw, but if they go further they'll need serious help from the draw. I'm also expecting Stosur to do significantly better in Australia this year (AKA she'll win at least one match).

If it's that much of a foregone conclusion then why did you open the thread?

You know how it is

They are both ranked ahead of her. Serena will have nothing to lose if they do play each other (which as some fanbases have pointed out is not posaibke as there will always be a makarova waiting ti take serena out.)

Because he hopes to cause a fuss by leaving out Sharapova and including Radwanska instead.
