shinobu will get into the semis.. she'll beat kostanic, beat an off-form davenport, beat srebotnik in 3r, beat a gs underperformer schnyder in the 4th, then will beat some random hoe to get to the SF because henin-hardenne couldn't get to the QFs.......

hey i can dream =)

The title is rather funny.
Shinobu's retirement match vs. Kostanic. Well it rather implies that Jelena will.

No.

Well, few players have been worse than Shino this year. Kostanic is one of them.

Shino can win in three sets.

I think Shinobu will win. Jelena has only one 1 match at tour level since Bangalore this year.

It would be nice to see her end her career on Arthur Ashe against a big name player...maybe even under the lights.

If Kirilenko could beat Kostanic, Asagoe has a chance.
