Jelena Jankovic v Elena Dementieva: winner JJ
Venus Williams v Ana Ivanovic: winner VW

------

Nadia Petrova v Daniela Hantuchova: winner NP
Martina Hingis v Svetlana Kuznetsova: winner SK

-----------
Quarters:

Justine Henin v Serena Williams: winner SW

---

Nadia Petrova v Svetlana Kuznetsova: winner NP
Anna Chakvetadze v Maria Sharapova: winner MS





----------
Semis:

Serena Williams v Jelena Jankovic: winner SW
Nadia Petrova v Maria Sharapova: winner MS

Champion: Maria Sharapova (hits top form during the fortnight and takes revenge over SW)

“I’m not the next anyone. I’m the first Maria Sharapova...”
Australian Open Champion 2008 - French Open Champion 2012 & 2014

Re: Predict Final 16!

I mostly have the seeds holding. I think the most likely upset members of the final 16 are on the bottom half. They include...

Kirilenko
Azarenka
Mirza
Szavay
Paszek
Peer

In terms of how it will all play out in the long run.

4R

Henin d. Golovin
Serena d. Safarova
Jankovic d. Dementieva
Venus d. Ivanovic
Szavay d. Kirilenko
Kuznetsova d. Azarenka
Schnyder d. Chakvetadze
Sharapova d. Peer

QF

Serena d. Henin
Venus d. Jankovic
Kuznetsova d. Szavay
Sharapova d. Schnyder

SF

Venus d. Serena
Kuznetsova d. Sharapova

F

Venus d. Kuznetsova


SF

Edit: I forgot Safarova and Golovin on the top half.

normally id pick Serena but she is just coming off an injury so the situation is different from Australia and she could still be feeling in her matches. I get the feeling this will be more like Wimbledon 05 or US Open 05 instead of this years AO.

Re: Predict Final 16!

Serena's got her 2-hander back (and with NO brace/tape on her thumb/hand/wrist) so, yeah I keep my pics

Career Grand Slam in your 20s? Been there done that. Career golden slam your 30s?
There's only 1.

Re: Predict Final 16!

i hope maria sharapova doesnt meet another russian in the quarters... they always bring bad luck!!! when she won her slams she didnt meet a russian in the quarters, and everytime she's got past the quarters of a slam after facing a russian in the quarter finals she lost really badly!
