Clijsters. Mark my words.

she hates clay
I'm not sure she'll play the clay season. Probably some ITF and then Rosmalen;)

i never understand why kim hated clay. she has a good clay game. Maybe she win RG next year

This year it's Elena. Seriously, she wasn't that bad against Serena at Melbourne, and on clay she has an vene better chance...assuming serena is the main contender

I will say Serena at the moment but I would like to see how they play during the clay months to form a winner.

I think either Serena or Venus, but I am hoping for Dementieva to win, but sadly I don't think she can so do :sad:

Miranda
Mar 24th, 2009, 08:03 AM
I hope so, she deserves a slam:kiss::hearts:
Elena D :hearts: :bounce:

Azarenka looks the goods to go deep. Not sure about the Williams sisters...

This year it's great, we've got several players that have a chance.

But the title will go to a very fit, fresh and healthy Jelena Jankovic. Movement or reaction time wont be a huge factor for her on clay.

Zvonareva will play a spectacular clay season, but I think all this tennis will catch up with her (hopefully not).

I'd say a surprise winner even though serena is the clear favorite!!

Mar 24th, 2009, 11:34 AM
Kim Clijsters:devil:

Maria's comeback slam.

Mar 24th, 2009, 12:54 PM
The Williams sisters have great chance to do it again.:)
Other than that, Sveta.:)

Maria's comeback slam.
Maria sucks on clay (well, not really but compared to other surfaces she does). Even if she was in peak form it would be unlikely.

Sure Serena She is the queen

volta
Mar 24th, 2009, 01:18 PM
one of the Williams hopefully.

i think that Bepa and Jelena can get this one more then the others slams (Jelena needs to come out of her slump though)

Mar 24th, 2009, 03:03 PM
PLEASE!

I'd like to say Masha...but I doubt it :tears: :sad:

I did not vote anyways..prove me wrong, Mash :kiss:

Roland Garros will be by probably most interesting 2009 WTA tournament to predict the winner.
I'm with Ana, but I will wait Madrid Mandatory for my last opinion. I was created last season special thread about "WTA Claycourt Ranking" and here is result after last RG:

©laycourt ®anking

This Ranking is based on 3 best claycourt results in last 12 months + bonus 50% of best 2006-2007 claycourt result + 30% of career best claycourt result.

Exception Rule:
If 50% of players 2nd best 2006-2007 result is better than 3rd 2008 best result they will replace 3rd best 2007 result.
