Re: Indian Wells: 5 top 8 seeds into the QFs

Caro and Jelena seem to be getting into form
Elena was supposed to get this far. Her match with Aga will tell a lot.
Sam is playing very good now. And she is playing an under ranked player with all court talent.
Alisa is on the rise, and might be ready for a breakthru

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

But the big names aren't playing the QFs.

Former champions Clijsters, Henin, Sharapova, Ivanovic and Hantuchova : out. Top seed : out.

Re: Indian Wells: 5 top 8 seeds into the QFs

I think that the girls in the best form have made the QF thats it... maybe they are not the big names, but they are the ones who turned up ready to play.

Venus Williams
Sammy Stosur
Ana Ivanovic
Kimmy Clijsters
Martina Hingis
Jarmila Groth
Sharapova Dokic Wozniacki Delaqua Molik Kirilenko Dementieva Na Dani Kvitova

One more former champion out: Zvonareva.

Despite so, 5 of the top 8 seeds still made it. I'm sure some people will disagree - but it shows great depth in the women's field to produce so many players capable of matching each other's game.

So long...

So. Maybe they're just resumes now, not actual contenders. Well, too heavy. They are 'contenders'. But Kleybanova and Zheng are just as likely to advance in a tournament as Sharapova and Clijsters.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Sam is not a seed, nor Top 8.

Even with the top 4 ranked players reached the Wimbledon semis last year, people still were not satisfied with it.
So it's better if all seeds lose before QF.
