Re: S2 - 16: US Open, New York

Player Of The Week



Tamarine Tanasugarn


Tammy's great run of form in the last two weeks lands her the extra ace for the US Open although it's tough to give this out since all of you have 3/4 aces

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: S2 - 16: US Open, New York

Preview


The Favourites








Misa and Tammy have been the form players of recent weeks, and they both deliver results on the big stage, Tammy will be extra dangerous with a full set of aces, and Misa will continue to win as long as opponents keep choking against her JJ is a great HC player, if she changed her points up a bit more she'd do better, but she doesn't, so I'm not optimistic she'll go all the way.


The Contenders








Mashona has come into her own in recent weeks, and is now a genuine threat to the top players, Momo has been doing so well with 2 aces, but 2 are still 2 aces, and she's vulnerable, whilst Jidkova was highly impressive in Montreal, but can she reproduce that form?


The Dark Horses








The Dangerous Floaters






My prediction for who will win the title?

Re: S2 - 16: US Open, New York (GS)

I'd like to draw Ditty

Let's face it - somehow ATC Ditty is even worse than the WTA one.

Re: S2 - 16: US Open, New York (GS)

Well,I bet Mashona would be me in the second round.
Even I'd somehow survive,Momo/Dani will be next.

Anyways,I hope to gain enough points to secure my place in YEC. Like Dav said,he'd ensure I won't win it.

I predict a Alina vs Tammy final.
