she should at least survive a couple of rounds, the rumours say she is acting at a very high level for the moment (at least in the exhibitions she has been doing).

I expect a lot of her!

QF.... Depends on the draw. If I had the entry list it would be easier...

Martina has said that the other players are ranked between 30 and 95 - I don't think anyone knows much more than that!

I think she will have an easy first round, and probably lose in the second.

Not that I doubt Martina's skills as a tennis player. But she has been out for a long while, not being able to train a full schedule, concentrating on other things as well.

She has changed, the game has changed and she is not wonder woman!

I do hope she will make a full comeback, he game was pure perfection!

I expect her at least passing the first round, at most winning the whole thing.

Martina Hingis

I doubt she would be able to win the tournament having not played professionally for over two years. It depends who she faces in the draw - she probably will win at least the first round but will probably have to struggle and dig deep to go further.....

I think she'll probably win it. The thing is Hingis normally only ever lost to the elite big hitters on the tour. She had no answer to their power. An elite big hitter isn't going to be playing in this event - it's going to be players who have to graft and work a bit more and Martina was always able to handle those type of players.

As for Martina's opponents, I think the draw in Moorilla this week is a pretty good approximation of the type of players we'll have there. Probably without a player like Amy Frazier, but starting with Dulko and going down. My biggest worry is a player like Vaidisova, or Ivanovic, or Li playing that tournament, and, knowing Martina's luck with draws, she'll draw one of them in the first round. I really hope not!

But right, could I really say anything esle but that she is going to win it?

Well that is the $64,000 question at the moment isn't it? If Martina can play pain-free, and can recapture most of her mobility..she should have no problem winning the title...the outcome depends on the "if's"
