Re: Hard Cort Season

Dementieva is this year's Dubai champion. Not Masha.

*court

Nice thread idea but

It will be a very competitive hardcourt season leading up to USO.

I call Serena as US Open Series winner on the basis that she has a heavy schedule!

Re: Hard Cort Season

I think the Williams, Sharapova, and Ivanovic will be dominant. Also good contenders will include Hauntachova, Chakvetadze, Vaidisova, Radwanska, Demetieva, and Jankovic. All are good hard courters

Re: Hard Cort Season

Everytime these predictions are made about (1) Aussie Open and (2) Summer Hardcourt Season...they're wrong. Roland Garros and Wimbledon have been historically easier to predict. Aussie Open generally has to do with who comes into the season in the best form and the summer hardcourt season has a lot to do with who remains healthy during the most painful part of the season. I generally find the US Open as the most competitive of the slams for this reason. I don't think picking "favorites" right now is predictive. Wait until the Olympics is over.

Re: Hard Cort Season

Tamira will bounce back

She should ... otherwise she is out of Top 100


Tamira PASZEK
Na LI - Francesca SCHIAVONE - Roberta VINCI
Tamira's backhand, Roby's slice, Galina's dropshot

what do you think ?
Ana also won Indian Wells two-weekers and Serena won at hardcourt mandatory (two-week also) event in Miami.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
