Wimbledon because it's the most prestigious, RG because I want her to prove she's the post-Henin Claycourt Queen, and the AO because it's my favourite Slam

Obviously I wouldn't say no to another US Open, but it would be my last preference, with their shitty matches, wind, terrible scheduling and over-commercialisation ruining everything
Funny, I'm actually feeling a lot more confident about her chances at the US Open this year than I was when I wrote this... not sure why though

Although I'd still ideally love her to win a second Wimbledon title (because, let's face it, it is that bit more special than the other Slams), I really don't think it's going to happen now sadly - I think her game is now so unsuited to grass, that if it was going to happen, it would've had to have been this year, when her confidence was sky-high.
