Henin has withdrawn.
Safina has withdrawn.
Mauresmo, who wasn't really a top contender, but is a past champion, has withdrawn.
Petrova, who should be a contender, is not one.
Dementieva is not entered.
Sharapova on red clay...I don't see it happening.
That leaves defending champion Jelena Jankovic, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Serena Williams, and Ana Ivanovic as the top contenders. Another strong contender, in my opinion, is Vera Zvonareva.
Who is most likely to win in Rome?
