Having Maria Sharapova out of the draw has opened it up for the ladies (IMHO she will be missed!)

Serena Williams and Azarenka are in the same quarter – their QF could be final-worthy!

There’s a big opportunity for Australian Open champion Kerber and other top seeds Radwanska, Muguruza, Halep and others to make a run to the finals
