It's 2 weeks before the Open and assuming no one else(especially the top ten)pull out, who is your pick for the title?

I picked Justine
But if Venus is OK, she also could be real contender
No, you said it all wrong! If Venus is healthy, she´s the ONLY contender! Justine can´t beat Venus on hardcourt. Period! Kim hates playing against Venus, because Venus basically plays the same style as her: defensive, but better. Kim hates when it´s her that has to dictate and Venus is just content to let her do just that!

Don't start saying things that will come back to haunt you...

I'm quite confident a healthy Venus will one day be beaten by on of our two gilrs. Williams fans are in for bold statements: I remember 1 who just 3 weeks ago said neither Belgian would ever by ranked #1

i think Justine can't beat Venus and normally Kim to on hardcourt! Kim had a bad day next week in San Diego!

Go Kim, show that you deserve the number 1 because some people think you aren't!

Ciao

The word ONLY isn't really at the right place I think :confused: she has got a good chanse but she isn't the only contender! Juju got a lot better on hardcourt you can't forget she spended months training in Florida ... And kim ... wel I'm not shure wheater she could beat a healty venus but I wouldn't say she hasn't got any chanse at all

By the same token,
they didn't expect Serena to be sidelined either.

Also, all fans are known for making bold statements,
that they have no way of personally backing up.

It´s only that some people calling a HEALTHY Venus just a contender on HARD COURTS is disrespectful! Venus owns hardcourts, so to call her just a contender isn´t the right thing to do! Yeah, she can lose...but against only a select few. Kim will one day beat a healthy Venus on hardcourts..but I just think that the Kim-Venus matchup isn´t a good one for Kim. Venus and Kim are mostly defense players who can turn defense into offense fast.....only that Venus IS the defense/ offense player and can´t see Kim beating Venus at her own game. Sorry!!

Hehey, don´t get COCKY!! Three weeks ago Serena wasn´t surgery bound either!! If Serena stayed healthy, Kim would only have become no.1 AFTER the Open.
