Australian Open 2012 – My burning questions about the field

Wozniacki's Woes Continue: Bum Wrist ahead of AO'12

The Australian Open 2012 is only a few days away and I’m looking forward to losing all of that sleep! Many of the top names have ailments which they will aim to set aside in the pursuit of history. Federer (back), Nadal (shoulder), Wozniacki (wrist), Clijsters (hip) and Serena (ankle) still intend to compete for the first slam of the year. Aside from the health of these athletes, here are some of my other questions as the eve of the open approaches:

  1. Who will be the WTA #1 at the end of the Tournament? All signs point to Petra Kvitova, but who knows?
  2. Should Djokovic win AO’12 could he be on his way to a Golden Slam?
  3. Will we see Venus Williams back on court in February or is this her swan song?
  4. Can Serena Williams make another run at her 6th title?
  5. Will Wozniacki, Jankovic and Murray show signs of promise with their new coaching changes?
  6. Will Stosur be relegated to the likes of Mauresmo who failed to win her national Grand Slam title?
  7. Who will be the surprise star who will have a breakthrough? Wouldn’t it be nice if it were Bernie Tomic?
  8. Will Nadal and Federer make it to the semis to face each other?
  9. Can Clijsters defend her title?
  10. Will Li Na step up and win her second grand slam?
