Li will be rusty.
Kvitova is not close to the tennisforum hype.
Maybe those two players could beat Serena if she's in average form and they have a really good day, she'd have to play really badly or get injured to lose to the rest.
If Vika isn't fit, and with Sharapova's ridiculously easy early rounds that will give her a chance to adjust from IW, it's hard to see past a Serena/Sharapova final, and we know how that will go.

Name-wise the top half is heavier but as you said it's hard to rate Li and Kvitova, both could easily lose early and Stephens hasn't done anything since the AO.
If the rumour that Vika withdrew is true, the bottom half really is quite easy though
