Who is gonna be the new face in Sanex Champ next year?

who thought Smahsnova and Myskyna will ever be
in Sanex Champ this yr? and even Daniella is kinda surprising....
how about next yr then? will there be any new faces next yr?

Bovina has to be the with a shot at that,
she is rising up quite well reaching QF at US Open this yr,
Badanova is supposed to be really good too
after she upset Seles a year ago at US Open,

Kuznetsova, is the only one with 2 titles outside TOP 30,
Casannova ranked 55 only played 9 tournaments this yr
no one ranked higher than her played less except Davenport,
Safina is the youngest person in TOP 100,
Zvonareva reached round of 16 taking a set off Serena,
Widjaja can model after Dokic and plays tons of tournaments
when she turns 18 by 2003, and she is doing quite well

OR will Sharapova becomes some sort of surprise
and gets into TOP 10 next yr and goes into Sanex Champ
as the youngest player maybe?

mikaelian may get in.

i expect petrova and lina k to reach it.

stevenson and tulyaganova have a chance.

bovina is up there and so is daniilidou.

fernandez if she becomes more consistent and plays a bit more.


the new russians: zvonareva, safina and kuznetsova.

casanova, bartoli, harkleroad, dulko

possible surprise packages from the new breed include: sharapova, golovin, domachowska, douchevina.

surprises also from molik, baltacha, bielik, m-j martinez, bradshaw, lucic if they play at their best and remain healthy.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

i don't think most of the players mentioned will make the championships - it is not an easy task - and impossible for a lot considering age restrictions. the older russians have a good shot ie petova, lina (doubt she can be consistant enough though), bovina.

i would give everyone on that a list a better chance than molik to make it though. that was a funny one.

i expect to see danillidou and stevenson there, possibly bovina. i also think martinez will be top-20 again as she's playing better, is ranked 34, and has hardly any points to defend until september.

You have long been my goal, been my chasing, been my soul. I have hung out on the edge. But I just couldn't let go. There's a time to forgive. There's a time to forget. Close your eyes, get ready, set. Walk me down this fall I'm taking but don't let me go yet. Oh let me go, sweetheart, throw me, around you, like you know me. And remember me too. Remember me too from a dream i had of you. Mary Margaret O'Hara | Dream I Had | Apartment Hunting | 2002.
