@ Caro as a contender

anw I think Masha is a safe bet for the back-to-back...but Serena seems unlikely to give up like she did last year and Li could be very tricky too

Peak Jankovic will show up, blasting DTL BH winners all over the place, leaving her opponents hopeless to resist.

AND she will throw in some hardcore binge shopping to boot.

Why must people say this every year during RG? Serena won't ever win RG again, just like Venus won't ever win Wimbledon. Hell, I could see Errani giving Serena all types of hell on clay. Serena is great, but on red clay, ehhhhhhh.

Neither Serena nor Caro will win RG this year! Bookmark, Favorite, Or Save this because its not happening.

Re: 9 One-RG-Wonders Since 2000: Will 2013 See The Tenth ???

Most people have been so baby-spoon-fed with HC tennis that they mistake surface-specificity for randomness. The last few years at least, final has been contested between players with genuinely good clay-court skills and good recent results on the surface.

Anybody who was paying attention in the lead-up to RG wouldn't have been surprised at most of the recent winners and finalists. That nobody except Henin has managed to win multiple titles in the last decade only proves how hard it is for players to dominate on clay. That probably makes it more interesting than the other slams, but definitely not more random.

If Madame Li can stay healthy, she will have a very good chance to win it again.

I think Vika will win it, but I wouldn't count out on Sharpie or NaNa snagging a second RG title.

You cannot say like this, even they are only one RG winner, they are still the top players and some of the best players in the tour.

2000 Mary pierce won 1995 AO, and F in 2005 FO, 2005 USO
2001 Jennifer Capriati won AO 2001 2002, reached SF in Wim and USO
2008 Ana Ivanovic also got F in RG 2007, AO 2008
2009 Svetlana Kuznetsova won 2004 USO, reached QF in AO and Wim
2011 Li Na, reached F in AO 2011, 2013
2012 Maria Sharapova, Won Wim 2004, USO 2006, AO 2008

Maybe Myskina and Schiavone are a little random but they both still reached QF in other three slams.

Saying them random actually is not appropriate as many players cannot even win a slam or cannot win RG.

But who would have thought a couple of years ago that Pova was going to win RG ? She was playing so well last year, but I don't think her clay court skills are that good, not much better than Azarenka's. There's also, if not randomness, the fact that on clay top players may become more vulnerable, or at least, the distances with the rest tend to shorten a bit, so this is the GS where the chances of upsets are the highest.

So difficult to predict a winner, not until we see what happens in the pre-RG tournaments. This is obviously the hardest GS for Serena, at least during the first week. Probably Pova, Li, and maybe Vika, could stand a better chance, but if Serena gets to the second week her chances increase exponentially.

I love how RG is so generous in making GS champions, even if most are one-slam wonders.
