Current QF picks?

With the 2nd round finished, who do you currently think will make the quarterfinals? I think it will be:

Davenport v. Kuznetsova
Mauresmo v. Washington
Ivanovic v. V. Williams
Petrova v. Sharapova

Davenport has been on song, but Clijsters may exhibit her grass skills.
Kuznetsova only has to worry about getting past Vaidisova, who is due for her slam breakthrough, but I tip SK because she's a more consistent player.
Mauresmo is fantastic on grass, and has a great chance this year with S. Williams off form.
Washington is the second best player on grass (currently) her eighth of the draw, but Dementieva has been very plucky lately.
Toss up between Ivanovic and Daniliidou, but Ivanovic has had the benefit of easier matches. I'll be rooting for Daniliidou though, nice to see her looking strong again
V. Williams can overcome Hantuchova, and S. Williams has looked sloppy of late, probably the lack of matchplay, but VW is my pick. Hope it's a quality match, though.
Petrova's draw is wide open, only Conchita Martinez can really stand in the way.
Sharapova's draw is wide open.

The top quarter is most interesting now. Neither Williams sisters are yet on form, and the depth of up-and-comers in the top quarter is impressive. Davenport and Clijsters are playing nicely, Maleeva is perennially tricky, and the Vaidisova v. Kuznetsova match is intriguing.

The bottom quarter is least interesting, since the two top players have very nice routes into the quarters. Clay courters, doubles specialists, and Nathalie Dechy are the only distractions. Not a lot of depth, even with two former champions.

bump...change the three names that may have been eliminated if you need.
Now, I'd say:

Davenport v. Kuznetsova
Mauresmo v. Dementieva
Ivanovic v. V. Williams
Petrova v. Sharapova

I'm glad Dementieva went through, even if it means I was wrong
I'm also going to root for Daniliidou. I want her to get back on track, and back to the top twenty.

Good luck in rounds 3 and 4!
