WHY has the women’s event been so incredibly unpredictable?
Of course we are used to them having a more open field, but I think it is the clay effect. On this surface there is nobody resembling a dominant player, not even a top handful of players who are clearly better than the rest. On clay there is nowhere to hide if you are remotely off your game on a given day. On grass, and hard courts to a lesser extent, you can get away with a bad day at the office a little bit more. I think when we get to Wimbledon and the second week you will see a more recognisable set of names still going at the business end of the tournament.
