Seriously..!! WWW the USO??!!! (serious posters only)

ooh.. im talking about USO 2007
based on their current form starting Wimbledon!!!


only Champions listed that has a decent chance
to take advantage of their given draw!!!
Justine Henin, Ana Ivanovic, Williamses, Sharapova, Chakvetadze

well i think that its in this order...
Justine Henin
Venus
Serena
Sharapova
Ivanovic
Chakvetadze

is this USO the most open ever??
not a single player has won 2 Tier II or higher titles...
its very hard to guess the winner...
your views??

Venus vs Serena going for their 3rd USO
Sharpie vs Henin going for their 2nd USO
Ivan vs Chaky goind for their 1st USO ...

im excited for this match-up...
hopefully atleast one of those matchups would be fullfilled...

Both Henin and Serena have won a Slam and a Tier I.

Re: Seriously..!! WWW the USO??!!! (serious posters only)

The form points to Justine, but I really don't think she likes the US Open She's been in two finals but has never really seemed comfortable there, she likes the atmosphere at RG and W more...

Serena is injured I guess Venus has a good shot, but she has yet to really win big away from Wimbledon so who knows, and Sharapova isn't as good as last year, she was shaky even in the Cally events she played...

So I'll say it'll be one of the Serbs

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Re: Seriously..!! WWW the USO??!!! (serious posters only)

Right now it is Justine. Someone has to step it up to beat her and I just don't know who...

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Re: Seriously..!! WWW the USO??!!! (serious posters only)

Justine should logically win, but she's never liked all the raucous that New York can cause. She's kinda like Borg with New York.

Sharapova and Serena love the whole U.S. Open, New York vibe, but Serena might not show up, so Sharapova is the biggest front runner.

Ivanovic and Chakvetadze haven't played their best tennis yet at the U.S. Open, and they've got a lot to prove. Ivanovic wants to show that she deserves to be in the same breath as the rest of the top four, while Chakvetadze wants to prove that she is the player to beat this hardcourt season.

It's a toss up, but I'm going to go with the safety blanket that is Justine Henin.

Justine has just played with the pretenders this week
except for 2...
i think that her true competition
right now is somewhere
practicing for the USO...

and in the USO
Justine will meet atleast
3 of her main rival for the title..
if she get that far, and if they get that far..
no more the likes of Zi Yan/Petrova/Jankovic

as i read Ivanovics interview after in Wimbledon..
it seems to me that..
she really wants to get to that big stage...
she really wants to beat names to get there...

Re: Seriously..!! WWW the USO??!!! (serious posters only)

Jelena Jankovic is current WTA #3 and last year played semifinal at USO. She won this year two tier-I and finished USO hardcourts Series this summer at 2nd place (behind Sharapova).

So why she is not option in this poll??? How dare thread starter (sala_ryan) compare JJ (3rd USO 2007 seed) with Zi Yan who just enter in TOP100 and still must playing qualis if want to play at USO this year???

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Mentally, she is weak as anything. Plain and simple.

I have to agree with you Cp6uja.

The creator of the poll asks for "serious posters" only yet he fails to include an "other" option. Therefore, he is imposing his opinion onto the other posters by limiting the options in the poll, and thus limiting the legitimacy of this thread.

Mentally, Anna Chakvetadze is maybe current best player in the world - but that is not enough to reach more than QF at slams - for more you need much more quality. JJ last year in USO SF lead against Juju 6-4 *4-2... can you even imagine Chaky against Henin in that position at this USO? AnnaC in last 10 slams have only one TOP20 wins(Schnyder) but she is "real contender" in this poll and Jelena Jankovic is not!? Why... because won Cincinati (best ranked opponent is #38!) .

Why all bookmakers give as "USO-2007 winner" odds less than 10 at Jelena and more than 20 (even more than 30) at Chaky? Because all they is creazy or just threadstarter is not so smart like he think?

I think Chaky deserve to be in this poll because she is realy one of TOP "dark horses" and deserve to be one of 10 options - but Jelena Jankovic WTA#3, YEC#2, USOS#2, USO2006-SF... is REAL CONTENDER and ofcourse deserve to be in this poll!

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

Re: Seriously..!! WWW the USO??!!! (serious posters only)

Justine is the favorite no doubt. Can't really see someone who can beat her there unless a healthy Serena or Masha can come along and hit her off the court. We'll see

My Forever Fav: Jelena Dokic

Serena Williams, Ana Ivanovic

That's a great point to discuss. Henin doesn't enjoy the USO or Miami as much as other venues for similar reasons. Heat and humidity in my opinion. Its also a lot further for her to travel. Henin does seems more comfortable training in Europe, rather than the states during the summer.

Should Henin's shoulder not bother her too much (she was serving bombs at Jelena today) she has to be the favorite after her Tier I win in Toronto over Jankovic.

The last time Henin won Toronto, she went on to win the USO in 2003. And I'm sure people haven't forgotten the Capriati-Henin Semifinal that year. It was one of the rare times Henin cramped during a three-set match.
