Patty even though shes not on the list. If she doesn't win it then Peng will. If she can play like she did against Kim then she will dominate the field:devil:

This is a tough question :cool: , imo the front runners are (in no particular order;) ):

Lindsay - always played well on hardcourts, has won it before, if she is on with her groundies, will be trouble for anyone.

Kim - plays really well on the hardcourts, the best player on the stuff this year, has beaten everyone in the draw

Venus - Coming off wimby she will have alot of confidence, if she keeps the errors down has more than a chance.

Serena - Is always a threat a major, dont know what her form is like, without any injuries she has a shot though.

Justine - seems to be able to bring her A game for all the big events, not her best surface, but can still win it.

Sharapova- dont really know what kind of form she will be in when she gets there, but has a big game and is mentally strong enough to go through 7 matches.

Outside chances: Pierce & Mauresmo- mary is playing really well and momo has the game to win but not the head.

My head says Serena Williams

if we're talking all the players played their a-games. I think Serena and Justine...but Justine because of her advantage mentally.
