You wouldn't bet against Flavia Penetta for Wimbledon. She moves well on the grass and hits some clean, flat strokes. At 28, she is also young and still improving.

On the US hard courts, I really think Marion Bartoli is in with a shot at her first grandslam title. She won Stanford last year, and seems to enjoy a regular fast bounce. She'll the one to watch.

Shahar Peer is without a doubt a contender on any clay court, and I can see her lifting the French Open trophy in maybe 5 years time. Or Alize Cornet, when her form recovers.

At the Australian Open, perhaps Anna Chakvetadze will emerge revitalised in time for next year's tournament.

There are endless, and exciting, possibilities.

The usual suspects:

Safina, JJ still have some time, but could be overtaken by new comers

Flavia, Dementieva, Petrova : not too much time left. Opportuity door could close soon

Petrova, who took forever to win her first title just like Fran.

Hopefully the fattest player on tour. In fact, I hope the winner of each bloats themselves especially for the tournament.

I hope they present the winner with a trophy full of popcorn. :drool:

If that's the kind of entertainment you seek in women's tennis, you will never be disappointed as of 2010.

You act like Wozniacki won instead of a woman with an enjoyable all-court game. Please seek help.

Women's tennis and sumo wrestling should merge :drool:

Flavs will beat Lena D for her maiden Wimbledon crown.

At the USO final, Bartoli will beat a JJ coming from her first ever victory over Justine.

When someone does have their day in the sun when they show what they can do and hit zone at the right time with the right strategy and tactics you do feel kinda sorry for those who didn't make it. Elena has her Olympic Gold even if she's overdue a slam, Nastya had her slam. Iva had hers. Patty is probably the obvious case of the smartest, most talented player, with wins over pretty much anybody who is anybody, who hasn't got the big trophy in her collection. Petrova is probably next nearest of teh older players.

At the end of the day I can't think of any other "era" in the history of women's tennis where the #7 and #17 could have put on such a high quality display of tennis. To me, that's a good thing.

In the long term, no, lower-profile finals and 3r matches between Sharapova and Henin are not good for the sport. But I don't think the occasional Myskina, Majoli or Schiavone moment is bad either.

I hope Bartoli, Kleybanova, Pavlyuchenkova, Paszek, Kanepi and unretired Davenport can win slams. :worship:
