Fantasy WTA Championship Finals

This is my line-up for a Fantasy WTA Champs.It's a knockout event, with players seeded and drawn according to their results in Grand Slams. Pick the winners of each match, right thru to the final match-up. Matches are best of 3 sets, played on medium-paced courts. Players are at their peak and having a dream day!
Who's the best of the best???

Top Half

(1) Court vs. (16) Novotna
((14) Capriati vs. (8) Hingis
(6) Seles vs. (12) H. Mandlikova
(10) V. Williams vs. (4) Navratilova

Bottom Half

(3) Evert vs. (11) S. Williams
(13) Davenport vs. (7) Goolagong-Cawley
(5) King vs. (14) Capriati
(15) Austin vs. (2) Graf


BTW, I only chose Open era players, for ease of recognition. I'd love to have seen some of these match-ups!!

IMHO, the next rounds would be:

Court vs. Capriati
Seles vs. Navratilova
Williams vs. Davenport
Capriati vs. Graf

THEN:

Court vs. Navratilova
Williams vs. Graf

THEN:

Navratilova vs. Graf

with a close 3 setter going Steffi's way at the end!!!

What's your view?

Court d. Novotna 6-3, 6-2
Hingis d. Capriati 7-6(9), 6-4
Seles d. Mandlikova 6-4, 6-4
Navratilova d. V. Williams 7-5, 7-5
Evert d. S. Williams 3-6, 7-6(10), 7-5
Goolagong-Cawley d. Davenport 7-5, 4-6, 7-5
King d. Capriati 6-2, 7-5
Graf d. Austin 7-5, 3-6, 7-5

Hingis d. Court 7-6(14), 7-5
Navratilova d. Seles 6-4, 4-6, 7-5
Evert d. Goolagong-Cawley 6-3, 7-6(8)
Graf d. King 7-5, 6-3

Hingis d. Navratilova 6-4, 1-6, 6-3
Graf d. Evert 6-2, 6-4

Hingis d. Graf 7-5, 5-7, 7-6(20)

Don't take my choices seriously! It's just what I would like to happen!

Really nuriboy? You think that the Williams sisters would play each other in the final? I mean I was only hoping when I said Hingis would win, but if you think the Williams sisters would meet in the final then you are crazy! If I was being realistic, I'd pick Navratilova d. Graf!

Children, children!! Remember, realism has only a small part to play in all of this - it's a FANTASY event!! My own views are, firstly, that these match-ups would certainly draw in the crowds...secondly, that we've been blessed over the last 30 years with some magnificent players and champions....and thirdly, that Steffi would whup each and every ass she encountered!!!!

Seles def. Mandlikova
Navratilova def. V. Williams

Bottom Half

Evert def. S. Williams

(You have Capriati in the draw twice steffilover)
King def. Capriati #2

Court def. Hingis 6-7 6-1 7-5
Navratilova def. Seles 6-4 4-6 7-6

Evert def. Goolagong-Cawley 3-6 7-6 6-3
