What are you looking foward to the most in this year's US Open?
I guess this is a WTA forum so here are my thoughts on the women:

1. Who will actually win?
Especially this year with Serena out. This is the first Grand Slam tournament in a while now where I am actually interested in the women's draw to see who who will actually win the tournament. My pick is Henin-Hardenne. But even though Venus has been injured and not played since Wimbledon, you can't count her out at all.

2. The young Russians
I am particularly interested in how the younger ones do. I will be interested and have my eye on Sharapova and Lina K (who was a US Open Junior Champion a few years ago). Also Nadia.

3. World's #1
Will Kim be able to win her first grand slam tournament as the #1 ranked player in the world? I think if she doesn't win this one, she will never win a grand slam tournament (unless Serena, Venus and Justine are all injured a the same time). For some reason of all the contenders, I can just see Kim losing early maybe to Lina K again or another Russian.

My only concern is if my girl will do well.
As long as she's lifting the trophy in the final day, I will be content.
