Will we have a new slam winner in 2014?
Most expect Serena dominance to continue, firmly backed up by Vika on hardcourts. But is there room for anyone to bag a maiden slam?
Some of the contenders:
Princess Agatha: Most see Wimbledon as her most promising slam, and has a real chance to bag one IF Serena falters.
Sabine Lisicki: This grass expert has a chance come Wimbledon time, arguably top 5 on grass court amongst active players
Sarita: No chance for slam outside RG, doubtful even there but has been in the F and SF last two years, could benefit from possible draw explosion on the clay
The Woz: Has been slightly better lately, an outside chance at AO or USO if draw falls apart and she regains 2011 confidence/form
Empress: Has re-entered the top ten, improved serve and abilities at net, time is running out for JJ to make strong pushes at slams. Could do well at AO/USO/RG
Sloane: Has the weapons and game of a slam champion, played Serena legitimately close for a set at USO, questionable consistency and mentality. Needs to back up strong slam showing from 2013, but a good big match player
