I still haven't forgiven her for Pushing against Shvedova

Kirilenko is a good player, but not grandslam winning material i'm afraid. Azarenka, Serena, Sharapova would beat her in slams. A dark horse for a grand slam in womens is someone like Li Na.

And tbh, i don't see how she deserves a slam unless she actually goes and wins one.

:datass

Top 10 player who was in the last Slam Final isn't really much of a dark horse. I guess it depends on your definition of a dark horse though. Would Sloane Stephens be a dark horse?

Womens game is such that you can get to a Final without having to beat the best players. Any of them are much more capable of dropping out in the earlier rounds than the top 4-6 in the mens draw.

She's much better than her ranking says right now. From what I've seen anyway.

I would say that the favourites are Serena, Vika, and Sharapova for the slams. Li Na goes down as a darkhorse to me because when she's 'on' she's great, when she isn't she's awful.

The womens tour is a mental mess though, so upsets are more frequent and likely to happen. However, Kirilenko doesn't seem to have a big enough game for me. She'll have to be very lucky to win a grand slam. She can be top 10, but thats about it for me.

You never know in the womens game though. Kirilenko might just be on a great streak, and her level might dip after a while. Look at Shvedova. She Looked a potential top 10 player during june/july of last year and now she can't win a match

Kirilenko doesn't have the all round game to win a Slam unfortunately.

Li Na's not a fucking dark horse at all. She's a Grand Slam winner and has been in multiple finals. She might not be up there on the day against the likes of Serena, but if Serena has an off day she's shit too. Li Na's game is good enough to win any slam. She's not a top favourite, not far behind though but she's never a dark horse.

Calm down.

I don't know exactly where to place Na tbh. She's not one of the big favourites, so i'd put her as a Dark Horse. Depends which Na shows up. She's is absoluetely terrible when off, just spraying errors all over the place, but when she's on she can beat anybody.

Maybe we have different opinions on what a Dark Horse is

Outsider maybe but she was in the top 4 to win the Australian Open. That's not even close to being a dark horse. A dark horse is like Greece for Euro 2004.

When Sharapova's awful, she's awful. The same goes for most players. It's not a reason to label a Grand Slam winner & multi time winner a runner-up a 'dark horse'.

Oh my god, what the hell? I thought the match was going to start later. FUCK! I'm so stupid, didn't realise the match started earlier. I should have checked the timing properly, dammmmit!

Anyway, it's really worrying with the way Federer is playing atm, this looks really bad. Ever since the Aussie Open, he hasn't been playing at his usual standard. Lost to Julien in straight sets in Amsterdam, lost to Berdych after wasting three match points in Dubai and now he has been beaten very comfortably by Nadal(although tbf for this match, he's been having some back problem) who just came back a month ago from a very long injury. If you compare this with the way he was playing around this time last year, you would realise that there is actually a huge difference. Last year he was playing so much better, it is unbelievable really.

Now there is a possibility for Murray to overtake Federer in the rankings if he makes into the final. And even if he doesn't, he will probably do it later anyway because Federer actually has a 2 months break now so by the time Federer comes back from his break, Murray will No.2 unless he gets injured or screws up somehow. I was expecting Murray to overtake Federer in the rankings but wasn't expecting that to happen this quick.

I really hope this break can help him or something because he hasn't been good recently and that's worrying.

He's lost that edge, I don't think he still has the day in day out grind mentality anymore, to bhe honest, I feel like he's only playing these tournaments for practice adn only goes hard in slams now.
