Who do you think (if anyone)?

noone truly.......

I still have my own doubts about Serena's participation. Mostly because I can't see her flying to Oz for 1 event then coming home again. So, I'm not sure. It would be unfortunate for the defending Champ to not be there. I hope she goes and plays there. But I'm skeptical. I mean it's gonna be hard to play well there with zero competitive matches for the last 7 months. Gonna be hard.

Ithink noone in TOP 20 will miss OZ, many will be flying down there, with only 1 event to play...

but if any it will be either Venus or Serena :sobbing: :(

Venus, Serena, Lindsay, not sure about those 3.

I think it will be Serena too

*knocks on wood that Amélie stays healthy*

If no one withdraws, this will be the first time all WTA's top 20 players have played @ the Aussie Open, I believe :o :banana:

i hope to see someone outside the top 20 winning it. venus and serena have made it to so many grand slam finals so i think its about time its someone elses turn.

No one outside the top 20 has a chance of winning.
Apparently Capriati has a back injury so I think she might withdraw.
The AO is a Slam, there are many players who will just play that and nothing else, bc it is important.

looks likes the most likely player to pull out is capriati. it is has been said she has a back injury

Capriati will most likely withdraw considering she has a back injury. She just had an injury at not the right time.. Hope she recovers soon!!

No one outside the top 20 has a chance of winning.

I think everyone who will play will have some sort of CHANCE to win it. Even Maria S. ;)

I personally wouldn't bet with my life that there will not be GS champion outside top 20.

i completely agree with vutt. I think everyone has a chance of winning a grand slam. its the start of a new year. you just have to put your mind to it and focus and practise and you should achieve good results. :dance:

If someone outside of the top 20 did win a GS, I'd find it brilliant! It would be a surprise, which makes tennis more exciting :drool:

Jan 2nd, 2004, 02:14 AM
i think sharapova, pierce, molik, schnyder and maleeva could do well

Jan 2nd, 2004, 02:44 AM
At this point, the best bets would be Jennifer and Serena, though it lookds as if Jennifer is more doubtful at this point because she withdrerw from a tournament that ends right before the AO.

let's hope they're all there!

Jan 5th, 2004, 01:53 AM

Jan 10th, 2004, 03:40 AM
Serena will (and has) withdraw....
