I think she can, and maybe even Venus, or definatly Vera. She is playing the best tennis I have seen her play in ages, and in a word Jenny is playing crap. She should have won at least two of her matches 6-0 6-0 this week, and her serve is awful.

I would love for Jenny to win, but I doubt that she will if she continues to play the way she has done.

I'm sure she'll put up a great battle

Bikes all the way until 1pm

I dont think she has a chance- jenn has wiped the floor with her opponents so far, nadia might get 3 games in each set- but thats about it. Out of the contenders for the title, jenn, serena, kim and justine have had the easiest matches, one of them will win it.

I'm the same....have a HELL of alot of respect for both. I told a friend from here I felt Jen would win the French....and I think her game is better suited than either of the Williams (except Serena...if she plays 100% we all know she can't be beaten IMO).

Nadia....a string of injuries....I want her to do really well....and she has already....I hope Jen wins....not dissapointed if Nadia does

****** Dasha Sam, Jarka, Casey, Serena , then the guys with nice asses on the ATP, followed by other Aussies, bit of a gap...then Venus.....bit of a bum scratch...then will watch Lisiki or Radwanksa...gap...everyone else (or sleep) ******Pending membership for the Ash Barty Return Band Wagon*****

LMFAO i would take Jennifers scores so far

btw TBE u ARE kidding me?? Eurosport

Nadia can def beat Jennifer, Venus/Vera and for sure Kim Clijsters

but she can also lose very badly tomorrow

im just glad the injuries seem to be behind her

lol sure.....until Serena came in2 her own i felt Jennifer was the best American "clay courter" ie having the best "clay game". it could go either way, but the quarters for either (spec Nadia ) is great

Eurosport

Yes, Nadia can definitely beat Capriati... I saw the Capriati v Vakulenko match earlier, and Capriati wasn't all that impressive (Vakulenko sucked, though... essentially, if Capriati got the ball in play, Vakulenko made the error). And you say you'd prefer Capriati's scores so far... but she's lost nine games, and Nadia's only lost eight.

Nadia could have won in Rome, but got nervy at the end of the first set, then faded... if she can get off to a better start here, there's a serious chance of an upset.

no i said I'D take them......ie if i was playing in a GS i (personally) would take only 9 games lost

basically.....Capriati has everything to fear. Nadia has nothing to lose and all the talent.....a dangerous combo

I thinks she has a good shot if she is serving well.
