TianTian qualified and got to 2nd round in 2004... she can play well on grass... but then she got defeated by Rolle in first qualie round of Birmingham She's still my pick though

Sun Tian Tian
2 Top-10 wins (Serena Williams and Patty Schnyder)
1 Singles Title (Tashkent '06, defeating Azarenka, Tulyaganova)
13 Doubles Titles (including 2004 Olympic Gold and 2008 AO Mixed)
Career High 77 (Singles) and 16 (Doubles)

Its very hard to say as none of the Chinese players played during the grass season last year due to some national tournament at home the players were required to participate in. As a result, the Chinese contingents ability on grass is very much an unknown. It will be interesting to see how they perform and I'm sure there will be surprises.

As far as the non-Chinese are concerned it seems clear grass suits Sania Mirza's game and the Japanese have over the last few years also enjoyed playing on grass.

Na will probably be seeded 25-32, meaning she will face one of the top 8 in the R32. I am praying she draws Dementieva and pulls the upset

Peng doesn't play the counter-punching style of most of the other Chinese players, and Sania has incredibly forceful groundstrokes, but neither look set to make an impression.

She'll be seeded in 25-32, but that means she faces any of the top 16 seeds. That's winnable.
