The Final Four At The U.S. Open Will Be...

I'm relatively confident in saying that the final 4 at the U.S. Open this year will be:

(1) Justine Henin Vs. (12) Venus Williams

(2) Maria Sharapova Vs. (16) Martina Hingis

- First of all, I'd really like to see Serena Williams beat Henin and make the semis but realistically based on the way they've both being playing their first three rounds I can't see Serena toppling Henin, although I will admit that if one of those 4 don't make it it will be because Serena upsets Justine in the QF's.

- Venus has been playing exceptionally, with much more ease than her sister, and I don't think Ivanovic can trouble her (not on a fast court) and Venus will be eager for vengence over Jankovic who, based on the surface and the recent form of Venus, should be blown off the court by Venus.

- Sharapova has only lost 2 games in two matches and has looked incredible considering her inconsistent year. Considering her draw I would consider it shocking if she didn't make the semis. Chakvedatze should be an interesting match up but prolly won't even take a set.

- Hingis has shown that she's in better form than we anticipated she would be for this tournament and has a decent draw. Her only serious oppopnents on the way to a semi final match up with Sharapova would be Kuznetsova in the 4th round and Petrova in the QF's. When Hingis is playing well she is a better player than these two and mentally stronger thus despite limited physical extent I see her beating these players.

Agree or disagree?

Thanks.

BTW, I think the final will be:

(2) Maria Sharapova Vs. (12) Venus Williams

Winner: (12) Venus Williams.

Re: The Final Four At The U.S. Open Will Be...

It's tough to predict the final four right now, there are still some tough matches for all of them. I think Maria will be there for sure, can't guarantee the other three.

Merci Justine!


Agnieszka Radwanska - Beautifull style, tons of talent and variety, and the cutest smile on tour.

There's still a long way to go, first 3 rounds mean nothing, look at Venus at Wimbledon

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

If i had to predict...the tournament that would be my picks..and the winner. As much as I want Serena to kick Justine's ass, i dont see it happening the way she's CURRENTLY playing. But we know Lil sister can pull out a can of whoop ass when her back is against the wall..so...based on raw talent alone...I will never count out Serena. Venus is playing well ...and with her showing her new line and being in NY...I think she rise to the occasion like she did at Wimbledon. I said it once...and will say it again NOBODY can beat Venus when she's playing her best.

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

I hope one of the Williams gets to the final. It shouldn't be hard for Maria, considering the cup cake draw she was gifted with.

Re: The Final Four At The U.S. Open Will Be...

From the bottom half I like Kuznetsova, if she plays her best she is undoubtedly one of the best players on tour period.....But she's pretty up and down and doesn't seem to find her highest gear that often.
STtill I would pick her, she is the best athlete w/the biggest weapons in the bottom half w/Maria out.

From the top half as of now, I would say Venus for sure. Serena and Justine a toss up, yeah SErena hasn't played amazing but even w/this level I think she has a 50% chance to win on fight and desire alone.

However Justine is capable of playing really well and if Serena is flat win the match; just as Serena could very well raise her level from now and and pull out top gear and win the tournament.....we'll just have to wait and see!
