The good thing here is that she is going to play a tournament before Wimbledon.
I think she has a great oportunity to win it Pierce is soming from an injure so I don't think she will be at her best, Kirilenko and Dulko Kirilenko is losing very early in every tournament and Dulko as well.
not sure about how dangerous she can be at grass.
I would say that the one to fear is Elena in any other tournament but I have to admit it and I hate to say it she sucks at grass.
So Ana has all the chances to win
