Which of the Final 16 will win?

Now that week 1 is over and we're down to the Final 16, who do you guys think is going to win? For reference, here's everybody who's left ranked by the number of games they've lost so far:

1. Victoria Azarenka - 6
2. Dinara Safina - 12
3. Vera Zvonareva - 13
4. Svetlana Kuznetsova - 14
5. Ana Ivanovic - 15
6. Agnieszka Radwanska - 17
6. Petra Cetkovska - 17
8. Elena Dementieva - 18
9. Katarina Srebotnik - 19
10. Flavia Pennetta - 21
11. Jelena Jankovic - 24
12. Petra Kvitova - 24
13. Carla Suarez Navarro - 26
14. Kaia Kanepi - 27
15. Maria Sharapova - 29
16. Patty Schnyder - 33

As for me, right now I think Ivanovic will probably win, with the runner-up being Kuznetsova, Safina, Sharapova or Azarenka. If Jankovic makes the Final, I think she'd probably win also, but I think Ivanovic has been playing better so far and I always have doubts about Jankovic because I think she has a tendency to choke in the big matches. What do you guys think?

So far Ivanovic is winning overwhelmingly with 100% of the vote. Hopefully that's a good sign for her

Wow, Sharapova is my favorite player, but I can't believe she's actually winning this poll now

And poor Kuznetsova... she never gets any love!

By the way, anyone who picks the last option in the poll should comment and say who they're voting for and why.

Re: Which of the Final 16 will win?

Well someone finally voted for Kuznetsova... but how come only one vote for Jankovic??? Craziness.

OK, never mind. It's 2 now. But still, surprisingly few. Definitely not the result I was expecting. I figured Jankovic and Ivanovic would dominate this poll...

Re: Which of the Final 16 will win?

OK, now Jankovic's numbers make a lot more sense. Interesting that more people have voted for Dementieva than Kuznetsova. I think Kuznetsova has a much smaller fan base than the other top players and that's being reflected here. No question that Kuznetsova has a better shot of winning than Dementieva though.

I cannot believe Sharapova is leading this poll.
