US Open qualifying - predictions and preferences

Who I predict will qualify

Voskoboeva
Erakovic
Dubois
The Dropshot Dame Oprandi on account of her awesomeness. Bertens and Nara are dark horses here though.
Glatch
Going with a surprise qualifier: Scholl, even though Hlavackova would be the obvious pick here.
Foretz, not because she's the top seed but on account of recent good results and overall weakness of this section.
Also going with a surprise here: Kolar
Koryttseva or Czink
Fichman?
APS
Diatchenko or Domachowska
Rodionova the Lesser
Shvedova
Absolutely anyone can qualify from this section. Micaela Carolina is coming back from serious injury, so I'm going with Knapp, assuming her body will hold up.
Wozniak

- if I mention more than one player, the first is the one that should be considered for prediction contest purposes (i.e. Koryttseva and not Czink)

- I'll revise these picks tomorrow and post new ones sometime before play begins.

Who I wish would qualify

Don't care - at all. Beygelzimer if I had to pick someone as I like her hair.
Don't care. Maybe Rogowska as I remember her tweeting something funny once.
Tadde
The Dropshot Dame
GOATmila
Panova as the poor woman has been playing GS qualies for ages and has never qualified. Failing that, Savchuk.
That slut Broady.
One of the young players, Kolar, Linette or Savinykh, don't really care which one.
Gibbs
Kris. Pliskova
So many players I like in this section. Robson, but failing that I'm fine with Evtimova or screamer Cadantu.
Ditto. Dentoni, but I'd be fine with Thundah, Domachowska or Diatchenko.
The Only Caroline That Matters. Failing that, Kulikova.
Minella. Failing that, Kar. Pliskova or Bukkake.
I'm fine with just about anyone on this section qualifying - big lefty basher Bogdan, Micaela Carolina, Knapp, Tsurenko, cutie Lim.
Vögele - can't help still liking her.

Assorted notes

USO qualies are devilishly difficult to predict. 128 player draw and relatively few upper tier challengers in the ITF calendar from Wimbledon until the USO means we're unable to properly gauge the form of the #100-250 players who will contest qualies. Far too often in previous years I just ended up going with the top seed.

The Dubois section is piss weak, the Gallovits one LOLOLOL weak, but the next three (Kuryanovich/Bremond, which is also very balanced, Hlavackova and Foretz) are all very interesting, as are the Chan, Minella and Voracova sections further down the draw, the latter being IMO the most balanced in the draw.

Kvitova * Garcia * Dodin * Robson


Eu Jogo Ténis


Prokofiev + Son Goku = pwnage

Laura
Junri
Carolne or Zarina
Sachie
Bogdan, Lim, or Krunic would be cool

The USO is the only Slam where that has happened - more than once - over the last few years.

It's true...at this level, rankings mean very little, and with so many qualifying sections, there are bound to be quite a few with duds for seeds, allowing for some serious insanity. Every year there are 2 or 3 WTF results - one of which tends to make perfect sense a full year later (cf. Falconi '10).
