If we were to assign each of the top players a tournament in which they perform best, Rafael Nadal would certainly get the French Open and Roger Federer Wimbledon.
Victoria Azarenka and Novak Djokovic, would share the Australian Open. And Serena Williams...she would get the Sony Open. That's right, the queen is coming home, again.
The defending champion has an astounding 61-7 winning ratio in Key Biscayne, with her eyes firmly on a seventh trophy. There is no doubt that Serena feels at home in Miami, and for good reason, as her residence in Palm Beach Gardens is only an hour drive from Crandon Park.
The big question is, will anyone dare to stop her?
Maria Sharapova who joined Williams in last year's final, recently suffered an early exit in Indian Wells and has therefore dropped to no.7 in the world rankings.
Additionally, Victoria Azarenka has withdrawn from the tournament with a foot injury.
Radwanska, who played brilliantly in Indian Wells last week, suffered a knee injury and subsequently lost in the final to Flavia Pennetta. She promised she'll do all she can to be ready for Miami, but she is fighting against time.
Can it be Li Na who this year has already managed to win the Australian Open and reached a career-high ranking at no.2? Or maybe the veteran Flavia Pennetta, who found a second wind in Indian Wells beating Li and Agnieszka Radwanska en route to the trophy.
Francesca Schiavone is the potential dark horse, as the 2010 French Open champion might face Serena in the American's opening round. Oh, and let's not forget Serena's big sister, Venus. After all, it is her home too.
