Nadia Petrova is playing very well in first 3 round, does she has good chance?

Nadia Petrova is playing very well in the first 3 round of Wimbledon 2007, does she has good chance to win the whole tournament similar to another clay court specialist Conchita Martinez in 1994?

The last time Nadia played Wimbledon she lost to Sharapova in a QF in 2005.
This should be her best surface. She plays Ivanovic, sho's never gone far at a major except for the last RG.
So we'll see.

She needs to pick it up. Her draw is great. If she plays as well as she can, she can go deep.

I think she'll beat Ivanovic, but Mauresmo I'm not sure about. Nadia is more than capable of beating her, but grass is Mauresmo's best surface. However, if she plays Vaidisova in the QF I think she'll win.

Actually Nadia was the only player could beat Justine on clay in 2006, so she is playing very good if she is healthy.

Nadia has beaten Amelie 4 times. But first she has Ivanovic.
It's a tough draw. Then Maria in the semis.
She has 4 top 10 players in a row to beat. I don't expect her to do it.
I do expect her to play well against anyone.

If Conchita Martinez could do this, why not Nadia? Actually many good clay court player could win Wimbledon.

I wouldn't say a good chance to win the whole thing...but she could get to the quarters or maybe semis.

Nadia has a great game for grass. She should challenge Ana next round. I dunno how serious her injury has been though.

[Maja Matezvic] [Karolina Sprem] [Eleni Daniilidou] [Maria Kirilenko] [Jelena Jankovic]
[Tathiana Garbin] [Timea Bacsinszky] [Kaia Kanepi] [Na Li] [Vera Douchevina]
