    The newest craze. Clijsters and Henin will of course combine for 5 slams this year with Cinci being the real slam of course and I think it is safe to say they will make every final, only lose to each other. Combine to win the doubles grandslam as well and probably win every match until they die and they might still win a couple..


    Is this what every thread involving the thread WTA is going to become...

    I'll be surprised if anyone else other than these two win any of the 4 slams up for grabs...

    As much as I dislike the Williams sisters, they have a shot at winning as well and have had a shot for a while now. Of course, this is assuming they actually play well.

    Don't forget that Wickmayer has also just won a title in Auckland, so the Belgiumania is at its highest point.

    Ah, Belgium, the country of chocolate, pedophiles and the finest female tennis players! :)
    It's wonderful to see the two ladies back in great form. This raises the WTA watchability rating tenfold for me.

    Yaaay-Venus and Serena have some competition. :) I sure hope Svetlana K can defend her French Open title.

    Now if only Steffi Graf announced that she's training to get back to the tour again...
    I know, she's from west germany, but still... :)
