Ok ok, as I was writng this .. it just occured to me. Anyone of the four can win this slam. Without [email protected] I think there is going to be extra motivation and whoever keeps their emotions in check will win.
For some reason I keep also going back to Jennifer. She has never won here and I think she is hungary for a HOME SLAM.
For me, Clijsters is a big favourite against Davenport. Capriati is a slight favourite against Henin. But out of All-American, All-Belgian and Belgian-American finals, my money are firmly on Belgian-American final.
Kim is the heavy favorite over Lindsay; not only has Kim beaten Lindsay 4 times this year (3 of them in straight sets), but Lindsay could be hampered by her toe injury (we know Kim will make her run). The only chance Lindsay has is if Kim chokes.
I think the Capriati/Henin match is too close to call. Jennifer has been playing great tennis, is confident, and will have the crowd behind her. Justine is ultra-confident, though, and has momentum from the summer tournaments. Hopefully this one will live up to the hype and be a classic match!!
