Am I the only one that thinks Mauresmo will win Miami

I know defensive types can trouble Maria. But Kim's 1st service percentage is too bad for her to have an easy win over Maria. I think if Mauresmo makes the final, she will win. She didn't have much trouble defeating Maria at the YEC 7-5, 6-3. She was also broken twice during that match. If Mauresmo can forget the #1 ranking is on the line, I favor her in the Miami final...

Any comments

Agreed. Mauresmo can mix it up and if she doesn't let her first serve up, she stands a great chance to win it all. I have a good feeling she will! Go Momo!

Momo wont make it to the final-- Kim owns her. And anytime there is pressure (#1 ranking on the line, slam) Momo folds like a cheap suit.... It is too bad, because she is a great player, but she cant seem to overcome this mental obsticle.

I know Mauresmo is a top player, but everytime she plays against a top player I predict her to lose, just because I don't consider her as a contender in the big matches. She has proven me wrong sometimes, but I'm still not convinced she'll ever win a Slam or on a regular basis beat the top players

I'm not convinced she will beat Kim but if she does then I favour her to beat Maria in the final.

I think that the 3 remaining players all have an equal shot at the title.

Mauresmo can't forget the no. 1 ranking is on the line. Why would you ever think she could? If they meet in the finals, Maria will win just like Alicia, Lindsay and Elena did the last three times the no. 1 ranking was on the line for Mauresmo.

However, I'd be shocked as hell if Kim lost to Amelie.

If maria turns out to be the most consistent and mentally tough of the big hitters the most likely people to beat her are the people who don't play thataway. Someone faster, smarter with variety and weapons might do better. Momo fits the bill as do Nastya and Kim. Thats what last year (up to and including the YEC) told us with the first two and we may get a chance to see with Kim. Maria's advantage is that Nastya can't currently get to late enough stages of tournaments and the other two havn't been in her way. Thats why Kim or momo in the final could be very interesting.
