Re: S1 - 16: US Open, New York (GS)

Player Of The Week



Nathalie Dechy


Dechy's heroic and inspirational run to the quarters in New Haven with 0 aces earns her POTW this week, and she now has 1 ace to use in New York, the rest of the field better watch out

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S1 - 16: US Open, New York (GS)

Preview


The Favourites






Just like Bartoli on the clay and Mauresmo on the grass, Jelena has been the form player on hard in the run-up to this US Open, since losing early in Cincinnati, she has blazed through the field to pick up two titles, she could get tad complacent though, that's my only concern, the other favourite is Krajicek, Misa performs very well on the big stage, and reached the semis of both RG and Wimbledon, and on her best surface she's got a great chance to at least match that result here, the only problem is quite a few other players have hard as their best surface too.


The Contenders








With so many hard-courters and with Jankovic dominating the tune-ups, it was hard to pick some other contenders, I went with Maria as she has the game to beat anyone, unfortunately she's a headcase but she could put a run together here, Myskina and Rezai are recent finalists, and Nastya in particular has a wily strategy, and but can sometimes be overpowered, whilst Aravane can take anyone apart but is way too streaky.


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters






My prediction for who will win the title?

A bit OTT

1 of the words would have done the job, less is more

Re: S1 - 16: US Open, New York (GS)

Are you trying to un-jinx JJ? That is just annnoying. Especially after Amelie got the biggest curse ever. I hate Tamira and I cannot wait to play her ANYTIME, ANYWHERE so I can crush her puny little behind with some real tennis.

I really am going to harp on about this forever until I get justice.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Dechy
I hope Misa is able to get to the quarters with her recent form though.
