More on the Woman's Draw

Ok, this isn't really a tennis photo per say...But, get your minds out of the gutter and realize that these are two VERY LARGE threats to take the 2008 Australian Open.
As I perused the draws though, it became apparent that Venus has a much easier go of it - she should cruise to a date in the quarters with Ana Ivanovic (a player who she absolutely demolished at the 2007 U.S. open). If things go as planned she will then match up with Svetlana Kuznetsova in the semis.
Serena (last years champ), in order to get to the finals, will have to somehow find a way to get through the following opponents:
1. 12th seeded Vaidisova (possible round of 16 match)
2. 3rd seeded Jankovic (possible quarterfinal match)
3. the world's # 1 Justine Henin (possible Semi's match)
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bottom line: On January 26th, Look for the one in pink in the finals. Look for Serena at the beach (if you can't get a ticket to the finals).

The woman's draw


Last year's returning champ isn't all about tennis, but tennis is all about her.
Unfortunately for Serena, Justine Henin will be competing this year (she missed last year for personal reasons). I guess the question that we all want an answer to is the following:
Is Serena
a) sex-starved
b) attention-starved
c) tennis-starved
d) all of the above
