Pre-QF I mostly just want to see Williams/Ivanovic and Dementieva/Jankovic. Well, Petrova/Hantuchova too.

I really wnat to see Dementieva/Jankovic and Venus/Ivanovic as well, with the winners facing off for the right to play winner of Henin/Serena.

Sharapova got an easy draw here and unless Vaidisova can somehow stop her, she will be in the final against one of the better players from the top half. Talk about a top-heavy draw! It couldn't be more so. I have no idea who will come out of the weak ass Kuznetsova/Petrova quarter.

Re: US Open: Which of these highly anticipated match-ups will actually take place?

i voted all!! they all seem like they could be great matches, and seem pretty likely considering the draw... only match from that selection that is at risk of not happening is the kuzzy and hingis match... kuznetsova should make the 4th round at least, but its if hingis can last that long after a pretty disapointing year...

henin Williams

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

Re: US Open: Which of these highly anticipated match-ups will actually take place?

I voted for all the options... for these reasons.

I think Sharapova will win her half.
I can't imagine Venus or Ana losing before the 4th round.
I expect Jankovic to get past Dementieva, but the upset could be looming. If Dementieva wins in New Haven (looking damn good against Sveta today) I may pick her over Jelena.


OH crap-- meant to pick Szavay over Kuznetsova. But I wouldn't be surprised to see Kuz/Hing in round of 16. Hingis has the best draw she could have ever made. Kuz will have a tussle with Szavay though, I'm expecting.

Fourth round match should happen between Ivanovic and Venus.

I cant see anyone stopping a Serena vs Henin quarter final either.

Jelena also should be safe til her quarter final where she will meet Ana/Venus.

Others arent really a gurantee.

No way is a 4th round match against Lena a "safe" proposition. I do think JJ will make the quarters, but it's far from a given.

Okay then my vote goes to Justine v. Serena.

Oh, so many fantastic matches looming in the air. I can't wait for Monday and start of USO
Serena - Justine and Jankovic - Vee/Ana should be awesome
