I dont think you characterized those correctly

for example

Amelie Mauresmo is an outside threat to win
Magui Serena is an outside threat to beat a top player

theres definately a difference

Monica Seles is someone who's wedged between the two, favoring the ladder

someone like i dunno Elena Dementieva is in the same boat

mauresmo, capriati and davenport aren't darkhorses. a darkhorse would be a lower seed someone unexpected.

i like the 'favoring the ladder' part...sounds kinda porn-ish to me! i believe its 'latter' (unless you really meant ladder! LOL)

Favorites
In Order
Serena Williams--4 straight majors
Venus Williams--8 of the last 11 majors, she's been in the finals
Kim Clijsters
Justine Henin-Hardenne

Dark Horses/Top 10
Amelie Mauresmo--will she have a breakdown in Paris again?
Lindsay Davenport--can she overcome the top players?
Jennifer Capriati--See Davenport

Dark Horses/Outside Top 10
Patty Schnyder--clay is her surface...but where's her head?
Elena Dementieva--B&L made a believer out of me, but consistently can she do damage?
Vera Zvonareva--took a set off Serena last year; has been steady all year
Meghann Shaughnessy--has been hot this year, but has seemed to cool down recently

Total Long Shots
Clay "specialists"
Paola Suarez
Clarissa Fernandez
Magui Serna
Alicia Molik

I don't see how ppl put Vera as a darkhorse. What top player has she beat? She took a set off Serena at the French last year but I don't think that qualifiers her for a title run this year.
