If none of the current slam holders (Maria, Ana, Venus) win this year's USO, which player do you think has the best chance to win it?

My Top 5 for 2008 USO Champion: Venus, Serena, Maria, Jelena, and Svetlana

Dementieva or a Williams. I give Jankovic a fighting shot at every slam too. Kuznetsova seems to play well here too, usually.

I really don't know about the US Open. I voted Lena because she's been playing really well this year and even managed to get through the grasscourt season with a GS semi. She's done very well at the US before too.

Obviously out of the ones in the poll, Serena is a good choice but the fact that she hasen't been past the quarters since 2002 put me off. Then there's Jankovic who has a chance but it's really difficult to tell with her. She's never gonna win a slam with all these injuries.

Who I really want to see lift the trophy is Sveta or Jelena. But if the 3 slam winners are out of it, I'd firmly place Serena as the favourite by a country mile.

If Maria regains her focus and form I believe she has the best shot at this years USO.
Back to the topic now, if none of the current slam holders would win my bet is on Serena.

As long as Venus and Serena are in the draw, they are the favorites to win the USO.


Now if they get eliminated at some point, then Ana, Maria, or Kutzy becomes one of the favorites to win the title.

Back to the topic now, if none of the current slam holders would win my bet is on Serena.not her best slam. I think she and Serena will be fighting it out at the Aus Open, because right now they are the best two slow hard court performers. They hit well, serve and return well, and have the extra time to nail winner after winner.

And one of them is a LOT better than the other. Think Aus Open final 2007.

Think AO 2008. Who's the better player there.
You pick the only major Serena's won in over 3 and half years to judge her form?
Then judge Maria off her best form

It's not just mental strength. It's the 'whole package'. Agnieszka Radwańska, for one, demonstrated that she is mentally as tough as steel yet I don't expect her to be a contender for the main trophy. Not this time yet. A likely quarter-finalist, her goal this time probably should be to reach the Semi-Final.

Serena in that group is an obvious choice. So obvious that in order for this poll to have any interest it should have been called:

If the winner of this year's US Open is neither Serena nor any of the current slam holders...

Serena by far! She must be fired up after losing to Venus and so I would consider her the favourite even against Maria, Ana & Venus.
But if I could choose I would go with Elena over JJ! :hearts:

Serena or Lindsay , maybe Radwanska who know?

Besides Maria, Venus and Ana, the obvious answer to the poll question would be Serena. She'd still be a heavy favorite on the fast US Open hardcourts even if you added the other three to the equation.
We'll see what happens...

For the US Open, it will probably be if it is not Sharapova, Ivanovic or Venus, either Jankovic or Serena, and possibly Dementieva.

If Jelena is 100% fit throughout the whole tournament, she will manage to win.
But, it seems that she has played injured for the last three slams.
