Give Me Your Quarters, Semis, Final, & Champion

Someone will have to pull this back up to see who did the best, or maybe sticky it? I'm going to go ahead and make a game out of it. Points will be as follows:

Predict a Quarter Finalist 2 points
Predict a Semi Finalist 4 points
Predict a Finalist 8 points
Predict the Champion 16 points
64 points to be had

I'll start it off

Quarters
Ana Ivanovic vs Nicole Vaidisova
Serena Williams vs Agnieska Radwanska
Lindsay Davenport vs Maria Sharapova
Venus Williams vs Jelena Jankovic

Semis
Nicola Vaidisova vs Serena Williams
Maria Sharapova vs Jelena Jankovic

Final
Serena Williams vs Maria Sharapova

Champion
Maria Sharapova

Yea Quarters with her draw is not out of question, and she is way over due for a big break thru. Come on play the game, where are your final 8, etc?

Re: Give Me Your Quarters, Semis, Final, & Champion

sorry but if Venus makes it to the QF I don't see her losing to Jankovic. French Open or on clay yet, but not on grass. As I've said this is an even year so the stars are not align for Venus so she's more likely to lose to an unknown player than a top player.

I'm not even going to make predictions right now until the 4th round. If Venus and Serena are still in it for the QF then I expect them to be in the final.

Sharapova haven't won more than 4 games a match the last 3 times she played a Williams I'm not even thinking of her. She will make her usual 4th round or Qf but it stops there.

What? She can't even play Venus till the semis and Serena till the final so how does that make her lose in the 4th round or the quarters? Certainly, a few players could give her some trouble early on, but I really don't see her actually being out before the semis.

And get your facts right, she won a set over Serena in their last meeting.

What rock have you been under. Charleston.Serena.5-7 6-4 1-6. I'm not that great at math but I think that's more than 4 games.

Ha, not really. She's just too bland and boring for me. No offense to you though, cause I know you love her

I honestly don't know who'll make it to the quarters and play against Ana. That quarter is beyond weak and regardless of her form, she might actually make it that far.

Re: Give Me Your Quarters, Semis, Final, & Champion

oh my bad.. I forgot that defeat.. but people need to realize she's not the best grass court player out there and if she comes up against someone with a good serve she will lose.
