SERENA WILLIAMS
No. 1 seed, Age 31, USA
Since 1999, when Williams won the first of her 16 major tournament titles at the U.S. Open, eight Slam champions -- potential challengers to Williams' dominance -- have retired: Lindsay Davenport, Mary Pierce, Jennifer Capriati, Justine Henin, Anastasia Myskina, Kim Clijsters, Amelie Mauresmo, Marion Bartoli. Another, Maria Sharapova, is injured. And Williams rolls along. |(Credit: AP)
