    How about Wozniacki?
    She won Eastbourne and is yet to drop a set at Wimbledon.

    If Safina finds her feet she could be a threat
    She has the style to play well on grass if she can sort out her movement.

    I second that one; she seems to be the only one who plays with the belief and intensity to match up. That said, on grass I think it's still a long shot, at least at this point in her career. Wozniacki is too much like Jankovic in my opinion, no real weapons to finish points.

    1) Wozniacki just dropped a set the other day to KIMIKO DATE. Kimiko was winning in the third set but she some how lost.

    2) The williams are untouchable at wimbledon unless Henin is there, and she would still to lose to venus.

    The only one with a real shot is Azarenka. Why the heck is she not even on the poll!?!

    Wozniacki no way. She lost a set to 38 year old Date who has barely played any serious tennis in 13 years.

    What about Amelie Mauresmo? She's former champion.

    I forgot Wozniacki lost a set to the Japanese girl
    she closed that match out strong though.

    Vika. What about Radwanska? She's a tricky player, good on grass. She definetly could do it if she plays great.

    Shuai Peng gave her all she could handle.

    True, but she made the QF last yr. I wouldn't count her out just yet, she'd play Venus in the QF if she made it through.

    If her tennis doesn't kill her opponent, then her shrieks will for sure. Either way, you are dead if you play her.

    I think Serena's only threat until the final is Azarenka. I see nobody else in her half to worry about on this surface. On a hard court I would say Dementieva and Zvonareva are a possible threat to her but not here.

    Venus has the tougher draw. Saurez Navarro is an up and comer who likes all surfaces. Then Ivanovic or Stosur, then Jankovic or Radwanska probably. Kuznetsova or Safina in the semis could be a real threat if one of them gets there.

    I still see an all Williams final possibly but Serena only has 1 person to worry about, Venus overall has the tougher draw with more potential threats.

    Some really great matches coming up by the looks of things

    Amelie Mauresmo vs Flavia Pennetta could be a really good game to watch
    i hope that it makes center or court one.

    Gisela Dulko vs Nadia Petrova should be intresting
    I hope the win over Sharapova makes Dulko more convident
    because she has a good chance against Petrova.

    Victoria Azarenka has a good record against Sorana Cirstea
    but Cirstea has been in good form lately and i think she might pull this off.

    Best of the bunch though is Samantha Stosur vs Ana Ivanovic
    I hope that match makes Center court.

    Ivanovic has played her first two matches in no mans land
    and she deserves to be on the big stage now. I like Stosur as well.

    Wozniacki only plays Wimbledon so I can look at her. She has no purpose of even participating in the tournament. Safina hates grass, she told everyone after her first match how she wants to dig up the grass and make it into hard court she hates it so much.

    I'm thinking Jankovic, she's not under so much pressure anymore so I think she can pull it out.

    She hasn't even given it a chance
    that's a very poor attatuide from the world number one
    Henin never liked it either but at least she tryed her best.

    No
