As for Safina with all the points she has to defend she will be lucky to be top after Wimbledon. Kuznetsova will be lucky to possibly be top 10 coming out of the French as well.
I don't know about Safina's physical state, but on clay I would put her, Kuznetsova, and Wozniacki at least as likely to win a clay court match or tournament as Clijsters, Henin, and Jankovic and far ahead of Venus. Clijsters has been good, but has a couple bad losses and Henin isn't back to the form she dominated clay with a couple years ago.
