Aussie preview: The women

Lots of symbols on this draw. A legend:
star: match to watch. 
?: Why does Dominika Cibulkova always knock off a couple seeds in every Slam, but is never seeded herself?
* next to Venus' name: Dude, it depends.
?: Something tells me that any match Alize Cornet is in will take roughly six hours and she'll yell at the umpire. I guess that's not a question.

Overall, Serena Williams obviously is the dominant player on the WTA Tour. Yeah, that U.S. Open thing. It was a fluke. Not to say she'll never lose another major tournament, but it sure seems to me that any real challenge to her path to another title in Australia is on the bottom half of the draw. If Serena doesn't win the title, I predict she'll lose it to either Victoria Azarenka or Garbine Muguruza. Later!
