WWW Cincinnati 2011?

Now that the qualies have been placed and Toronto's champions have been crowned, we can have a legitimate poll. (albeit a short-lived one)

Main draw: http://www.wtatennis.com/SEWTATour-A...1/1017/MDS.pdf

NOTE: This draw was made before Radwanska's withdrawal was announced. To update, add qualifiers, then replace Radwanska (11) with Jankovic (13). Replace Jankovic with Wickmayer. Replace Wickmayer with Craybas (Q). Replace Craybas with Martinez Sanchez (LL). When an updated draw has been posted on cincytennis.com, I will remove this note.

Notable names not listed as poll options:
[7] Francesca Schiavone
[8] Marion Bartoli
[9] Andrea Petkovic
[15] Ana Ivanovic

Tsvetana PironkovaSabine LisickiMaria Sharapova
Christina McHaleZheng JieMaria Kirilenko
Laura RobsonPetra KvitovaDominika Cibulkova
~~~
Special Mention: Jarka Gajdosova, queen headcase of the WTA

Re: WWW Cincinnati 2011?

Since I don't think Serena will play (and in case that she does she won't get pass both Na and and Sam) I really think Maria could go al the way if she plays decent tennis. I mean, she has such a cakewalk draw.
But if Serena does play and is fit after all the matches she has played this past week she will win I'm almost sure.

Re: WWW Cincinnati 2011?

Serena and her camp has already openly stated that they feel comfortable with a USO seed if Serena wins one match in Cincinnati. I think that reveals a little into the camp's strategy for Cincinnati.

If Serena plays like she did in Stanford and Toronto - Serena.

If Serena is playing safe and is satisfied with her run this summer leading into the Open, I'd go with Sharapova. These courts are lightning fast. Someone like Wozniacki would get overwhelmed on these courts in the heat and humidity.

Outside shot: Bartoli.

Re: WWW Cincinnati 2011?

I think Maria has a good chance, provided she takes her opportunities. I think a good showing her will give her good stead at the US Open.

Re: WWW Cincinnati 2011?

Serena is the favorite if she plays & cares about the tournament.

The other favorites are Azarenka and Wozniacki who can both play extremely well on hard courts.

I'm not as nasty and vindictive as yourself whereby I'm consumed with hate for a player. Bye.

Passed it every day on my way to the tournament.

Re: WWW Cincinnati 2011?

If she plays, Serena. She can get past Na, and she can get past Sam. She is playing with motivation, she is playing with heart, and most importantly... She is playing with a new outlook. Obviously I want Sabine to win... I'm NOT picking against Serena, though. That would be all too ignorant.
