Remember that there hasn't been a first-time GS finalist since Svetlana Kuznetsova at the US Open in 2004!

Potentially there are plenty of players that can possibly do it in any of the slams.
should be in this season, if all goes well.

I don't think there'll be any this year :shrug: The young guns will start to win bigger titles though and a handful of Tier Is and IIs ;) Next year I think will be when we see them start to make it into GS finals.

I'd agree, suprises usually happen at RG, so thats where i see her reaching a final:)

RG is the place for upsets.....I feel that any time you want a GS upset for a first time finalist the easiest place to do it is at RG....the only certain "specialist" is JH....Petrova is coming up but GS events haven't been her thing in the past...so if anyone wants to get to their first final go to RG...dunno who though and it will be next year

This year. RG is open. Wimbledon is open. US Open is open.

Especially with Clijsters don't giving a fuck, players who always loses to her might have a chance.

Quite right, but Hingis has made it to slam finals before... :p

I don´t know when but I know who will be ----> Nicole Vaidisova

Hey, personally I don't see it happening until well into 2008.

RG we still have Serena, Henin, Venus, Hingis, Dementieva, Myskina, Kuznetsova and Mauresmo who are all threats to reach the finals at least (although I think this is the most open)
At Wimbledon it's hard to see former champions Venus, Serena, Sharapova and Mauresmo knocked down, and the most likely ones would be Henin and Clijsters
The US Open will be much of the same, minus Clijsters and plus Kuznetsova

F.O - Jelena, Ana, Tati or Nicole..
U.S - same girls but mayb Anna C or Dani

French Open is basically Justine versus random opponent. So if there's a first time GS finalist this year its gonna be at RG. My best bet would be Nadia, last year was a nightmare so hopefully she gets payback this year.

When the "Grand Four" is not playing or is out before the quarterfinals....

(Grand Four: Serena Williams, Justine Henin, Amelie Mauresmo, Maria Sharapova)
