well her best opportunity is the upcoming French Open!

Kuznetsova Serena Na Kvitova

Also good luck to Jankovic, Vesnina, Stosur, Pennetta, Kerber and Halep

Well not this year...Serena is winning the FO if she stays healthy & focus.

Re: Do you guys think Maria will ever defend a major like Victoria just did?

well she's got a great chance at this year's RG,

- azarenka's not yet an established clay court player
- clay is serena's weakest surface and also she's got injury concerns
- li na is way too inconsistent and mentally fragile as shown by tonight's final

No. I think Azarenka is winning the FO this year.

Re: Do you guys think Maria will ever defend a major like Victoria just did?

Maria's first title defense of a major was losing to GOAT-nus in the semis during her resurgence of her career. Not a terrible accolade to have. I think she WD from Australia the year after. Can't remember how she played after the US Open win.

@ Vika winning the FO. I think Vika knows she's a non-factor on clay and patiently waits for the hardcourt season to come back. She just doesn't have the same movement as she does on a HC.
