What does this mean for the top half?

Who will come through? Vera? Nadia? It could be a Vera/Nadia rematch...wouldn't it be nice for Vera to get revenge?

Maria's in there too!

This could be a great opportunity for
Suarez to make the QF's!

Vera, Nadia, Maria and if Elena D's in consistant form she can certainly take out either Mauresmo or Davenport on her day. Also keep an eye out on Perebiynis who seems to be slipping under the radar and has a good draw. But I certainly think Maruesmo has the best chance of making the final, as long as she keeps her nerve.

Among the seeds, it's one of the Russians vs Suarez for a spot in the QFs vs Mauresmo

14 Suarez
------------------------------------------------
10 Zvonareva vs
18 Sharapova
08 Petrova

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Yeh i wouldn't underestimate Sharapova, she continues to surprise me even on clay.

Dementieva, as well, a streaky player who can play awesome without much pre-form (ie Miami 04)

I pick Zvonareva for that spot against Mauresmo, but judging by the way she played today, I think her nerves are going to get the best of her and someone's going to take her out before the QF or at the QFs. You never know.

Mauresmo is slated to meet Davenport in the Quarters.
Saurez or one of the Russians will most likely make the semis as Henin was slated to meet Petrova in the quarters.

Urrr, you guys are looking at it the wrong way if you're thinking that it will be a Russian vs Mauresmo in the QFs. None of the three Russians - Zvonareva, Sharapova or Petrova - can potentially meet Mauresmo until the semis.

Yeah, the three russians would play Mauresmo in the SF not the QF. Go Maria

For the top half, I guess the two QFs may be Suarez vs a Russian (Petrova?) and Mauresmo vs Davenport or Smashnova... (I think it's time for Smashnova to live up to her name!)

I agree. Vera should be able to handle Maria easily, but she can sometimes get a little too . If she stays cool, she should win in straight sets.

Звонарёва ~ Павлюченкова
Петрова ~ Клейбанова
Сафина ~ Кириленко
