The women's side is more open than the men's side and I get a feeling that anyone from the lower seedings can take the crown, say Serena? With the absence of defending champion Kim Clijsters in the field we are sure that 2011 is up for grabs. But who are my picks for this year's 2011. Here they are.

First Quarter: Daniela Hantuchova

This is a free for all bracket. Even if No.1 Wozniacki is in here, I don;t expect her to make a big run this time around. She might be there up to 4th round but if she runs into an error free Hantuchova then its adieu to her campaign again. French Open champ Li Na could also be in the mix but she has to defeat some stingers along the way.

Second Quarter: Serena Williams

Serena might be 28th seed but she is definitely one hot player on the loose. Her recent wins going into the US Open has shown that she is back and she means business. Azarenka is scratching her head as she is bound to face Serena in the 3rd round.

Third Quarter: Maria Sharapova

Seeded 3rd and currently ranked 4th in the world, Sharapova has a good chance of advancing into the semis and even to the finals. Her stern test might come to a possible quarterfinals meeting with Kvitova, the lady who defeated her in the Wimbledon final this year. Her first round encounter with talented Brit Heather Watson is also a must0watch.

Fourth Quarter: Sabine Lisicki

Her recent form is great after months of recovery from injury. Sabine is one of the few ladies that could actually match the power of the Williams and has a good gameplay in her. This is another open quarter this 2011. If ever Lisicki fails to capitalize, Zvonareva could step up and move into the semis.
