Player Of The Week




Kim Clijsters


Kim somehow managed to make the final in Sydney last week, so she gets the extra ace to use in Melbourne and now has 2 :yeah:

Preview


The Favourites








Molik is the clear favourite having won two titles and reached the final of the other event, the rest of the players seem clueless when it comes to playing her, and her record here has been fantasic, it will require an amazing performance and some luck to take her out this week, Dokic is the only player to have beaten Molik and she has 4 aces, but she lost early in Sydney, so her chances are uncertain, MK has been quiet in the last few weeks, but she's the highest-ranked 4-acer and a finalist last year, so she's definitely in with a chance to win her first major.


The Contenders








Our trio of newcomers makes up the main contenders to upset Molik and co., Vaidisova is the only other 4-acer besides Dokic and Kirilenko but has failed to make much of an impact so far, Dementieva shocked Kirilenko in the Gold Coast and is likely to threaten the top dogs here again, but it's Rybarikova in particular who impresses the most, she changes her tactics regularly and if she avoids Molik's half, could find herself in the final.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters








My prediction for who will win the title?
