    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Justine Henin-Hardene might be a chance.

    If anyone can beat the Williams sisters, she can.

    Since only one of them is playing now, i expect either of Davenport or Clijsters to beat her if the injuries don't interfere.
