Murray is cursed right now given the level of play from the other top players right now. But then Djokovic was cursed to and look at him now, so maybe Murray's got a hope, but he needs some brain adjustments to get there in my opinion.
What about Roanic? I was disappointed to see him struggle with injuries after a great start this year. I don't think Canada has ever had as high-ranked a player in men's singles as Milos was. Greg Rusedski (traitor) would have been the last good player out of Canada in singles.
On the women's side? Who knows. Depends on who shows up.
Kim if she's healthy. Serena is going to need a blessed draw to win. If she's healthy and motivated it's hard to bet against her, but I'm not sure she's motivated yet and having to play five top twenty seeds to win isn't going to help her if she hasn't sorted things out.
Murray, Murray, Murray! I know why I like him, he is far more talented than his results show. Sometimes, as a regular participant of the Murraycoaster I have to be reminded. I agree that a mental/attitude adjustment must be made.
On the women's side: As a huge fan, I am hoping beyond hope that Serena kicks major butt at the USO this year - to redeem herself after the 2009 debacle, missing 2010, and her struggles thus far. I really want to see her back on top.
