Who in your own opinion will cause the biggest shock this year at the first Grand Slam of the year. I think Nicole Vaidisova May reach somewhere like the 4r or QF. I think Tatiana Golovin may go far somewhere like QF or even SF, Also Alicia Molik may suprise people by getting to the Final. I think the winner will be Maria Sharapova or depending on how fit they are Justine Henin Hardenne or Serena Williams.
I think you can never count out Amelie Mauresmo, Anastasia Myskina, Svetlana Kuznetsova or Venus Williams. But i think the women that have very little chance are Kim Clijsters, i doubt she will ever get back to full fitness, Elena Dementieva, I just dont think her game is good enough compared to the likes of JHH and SW.
Vera Zvonareva, Jennifer Capriati and Anyone ranked below 15 i dont count as a big threat. Maybeb JCap a little test for some higher ranked players.
What are your thoughts.

1. More than 8 top ten players turning up..

2. Someone outside the top 8 winning.

Kim will return and win the oz open now that would be shocking! I really like JHH and I think it would be amazing for her to come back and win the ozzie open.

Vaidisova will beat Serena and Henin-Hardenne, but lose to Sharapova in the finals.

i'm pretty sure Jankovic will reach at least QF, she really enjoys AO, she won it as junior, and i believe this is open is the one she can make all her glory

Hantuchova wins doubles and singles and the mixed doubles title......well actually, that's no shock. Hant always play good tennis.

Ok the biggest shock will be Andy Roddick caught ****** Mardy Fish while Goran is watching.......

Kournikova vs. Hingis

I really want Lindsay to win this.
Biggest surprise would be Elene Dementieva hitting 130 mp aces throughout every match and win the final.

JHH has a lot of points to save......very dangerous for her.....she will be out of ten
if she has bad result.......

I think Venus winning by beating at least 3 top 15 players would be a huge shock. People have written her off as a threat only in the past but I think she really wants to win again and with a good draw and great serving she can win it all for the first time.

Justine Henin, Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Svetlana Kuznetsova will all lose in either the fist or second round.

You're all so delusional. We all no Cappy going to beat Serena in the quarters (no shock there), then Lindsay in the semis, then a russian in the final.

Go Jen.

I wouldn't expect that rebound ace would be the best surface for Maria.

It will be intresting to see what happens.

Evie Dominikovic, a near shoe in for a maindraw wildcard will win 3 rounds and join the last 16. Or...she will lose 1-6, 0-6 to someone like Castano in the first round.

Mi-Ra Jeon will qualify for the MD, and win a round.

China will have four women in the final 32.
