I disagree. The pressure is on the Belgians. Certainly Jen winning a tourney the week before a slam makes her more of a favorite, but she hasn't been close to winning a slam in quite some time. I think jen could care less about tying Venus with 4 slams, or anything else along those lines. As for carrying the hopes of America...come on!
Jen's play the past several days has been phenomenal. She has finally found the balance between offense and defense, after being primarily a defensive player the last year or so. When Jen is confident, serving well and letting loose with her forehand, she is to be reckoned with.
And praise the lord she has been hitting angles and moving her opponent around more. Her strange strategy of hitting to the center of the court had to go.
