Will this year's US Open be won by someone with a slam title from 2008 or someone without having one?

I think (but at least I hope:)) that there will be a new slam champ.
I guess that a few youngsters (born in 1987-89) have a fair chance for pulling off the big win.

Lena :awww:

She would deserve a Slam title very much. She's been particularly unlucky so far in her career on the big occasions. :o

I think its about time Yvonne stepped it up.
She has the game to take on the powerhitters and if her serve is on she is extremely dangerous, I still cant believe she doesn't have a slam already :shrug:

Sorry, but: Yvonne who?

I only know Meusburger with a first name 'Yvonne'. If you mean her then it's just pure sarcasm :)

When will everyone stop hating on Yvonne? Just cause shes not pretty, and has no weapons - she still beats people. I cant help my opinion.

The three slam holders + Serena will definitely be the favorites going into the tournament.

Depending on draw, we could have another all Williams final.

serena has worked her ass off since her australian 2007 open win with NO SLAMS. she will be the one to beat in new york, without a doubt. she's ready.
so my bet is on her to make it a four-different-slam-winner year.

Venus or Serena. Im going to say Venus simply because last year she was coming into the net on everything however this year she still comes in a lot but on the right ball, and her serve and volleys are key to her game nowadays (she's been serving really well esp. on the 2nd serve). Her technique seems better and confidence-wise she has the most confidence out of everyone considering the top 4 lost before the 4r. I expect Maria could make a SF or so but I don't see her beating a Williams sister. I think that Ivanovic will still be off the boil following the FO and all the media now and could lose in 3rd or 4th RD to any of Golovin/Mauresmo/Pierce/Davenport.

It's just gotten interesting....

couldn't you put names? I don't wanna vote for Ana:rolleyes:

Camille Pin

Oh, I forgot about Camille!

Its probably gonna be a Pin/Meusburger clash in the final I think.

What a match :drool:

I just hope it doesnt turn into a serving competition :(

I am thinking it will be Jelena's chance to shine here. She almost made the final here in 2006 and think she is even a better player now. Its a good time for her to get her first slam in New York.

anybody but Maria I think...but I gotta say Sveta or Serena

Pova will win her next slam in 2010 :lol: Shes been winnign every 2 years so far :p anyways I think Ana can win USO..Hope lena or Ana will win!

Venus or Serena will win the US Open. I am betting on Vee though. The last time I went to the US Open Venus won it. Going again and I bank on Venus winning it again. I didn't vote. Venus and Serena in a tie to win the US Open.

If Serena had won on Saturday, the distribution of the votes would be the opposite now :)

If Venus could dig out the US Open title for herself it would be her year regardless of her performance at the YEC.

But there are too many IFs. :)

And Camille would win it, because she leads Meusburguer 6-0 in H2H.

I hope Serena, but I would be thrilled as well If Vee could take it. I put Maria and Ivanovic slightly ahead of them though.

Serena or Svetlana.

But can't they just let Lena D. win a major finally for god's sake?

Poll: Which group has the most chance to win the 2008 US Open?

Talking about GROUPS in 2008 slams we have 3 different groups:
Russians
Serbs
Sisters
and all others.

That should be options at this poll.

So far Russians reach 1W,1F,2SF... Serbs also 1W,1F,2SF... Sisters 1W,1F... and all others just 2SF.

Jul 8th, 2008, 08:44 PM
Serena. If not her, then Venus. Maria seems to have some problems with her shoulder or serve; and I just can't see Ana winning here (mental strength).

Venus for the double if she's on the opposite side of the draw from Serena. Although for some reason, I think the winner will be someone who hasn't won a slam at least in teh last 3 years (Jelena, Sveta, Elena)

That has been my feeling for since 2007 USO.

I can just tell.

But the only way i can see that happening is a seeds-whitewash worse than wimbledon and i really don't want that happening at the USO!

I really think Venus has a good shot at winning the US Open this year. She always play well there after winning Wimbledon and she'll be hard to stop.

If she can maintain Wimbledon form on her second serve and forehand and the rest of her game holds up, she's the one to beat.

I have gone and stuck my neck on the line for this one as I would love to see Maria win the US Open again, but I can see a 2008 slamless player taking it this year maybe one of the younger girls! Should be fun whatever the outcome though :D
