Serena, Amelie and Justine why oh why...

Jen down, Venus down, Lindsay down... Kim should be in the final, but i want a surprise finalist from the bottom half... i'm rooting for Vera or Nadia.

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

Kim has the luck of the Irish! How many draws has she been in where all the seeds fell before they reached her?

I think you meant that four of the eight potential winners are in the top half!

I do agree that Kim is very lucky with draws. Good for her! It's not like she has control over it. HOWEVER, I wouldn't underestimate the bottom half just yet. I think that Conchita could give Kim a go at it, and also Nadia can be dangerous if her game is on. I think Nadia stands a better chance at being a finals from the bottom half than Vera.

Justine and Chanda should be good. It looks like a cruisefest for Justine, but you never know with Chanda. She can be on and bring it to Justine.

Serena and Amelie should be a great match-up. Can you imagine...Serena vs. Amelie, and then Serena vs. Justine, and then Serena vs. Kim?! If Serena DEFENDS here in Paris, then she definitely would deserve the #1 ranking!!!

My thoughts exactly. I'm cheering for Nadia now.

Serena has the toughest draw the second week. She will have to fight really hard to win it. She will have to play clay specialist back 2 back 2 back which will be hard on her body.

Hope she can pull it off, but it looks like Kim has the upper hand on everyone. She will not have to use much energy until the finals.

IT IS NOT KIM FAULT THAT JENN AND VENUS ARE UPSET AND LINDSAY IS INJURED.

If anything I am tipping NAdia Petrova in tehre with a chance to get to the final

I agree with VS1. Today's results should have proved that ANYTHING can happen in tennis, and you can never count anyone out from winning the title. There are still 8 women alive, and all of them have a chance of taking home the trophy.
With that said, GO CHANDA !

Exactly! I wish it were so, but oh well! I think we're going to see some pretty feisty matches in the next few days!!
