Can Capriati get her fourth slam to tie Venus's total?

The pressure is really going to be SQUARELY on JENN to break her grand slam drought, carry the hopes of America and to tie VENUS for total grand slam singles titles and surpass her in different slams won (oz, RG, US). Can she do it?

Hope not cuz I want Juju or kim to win but if jenjen wins i will be happy too cuz I would love to see her tie Venus in this dept and keep her lead on venus for weeks at #1!!! (17 for cappy and 11 Venus. btw serena with 57!!! Hingis with 209!!!!! GRAF with 377!!!! )

I disagree. The pressure is on the Belgians. Certainly Jen winning a tourney the week before a slam makes her more of a favorite, but she hasn't been close to winning a slam in quite some time. I think jen could care less about tying Venus with 4 slams, or anything else along those lines. As for carrying the hopes of America...come on!

Jen's play the past several days has been phenomenal. She has finally found the balance between offense and defense, after being primarily a defensive player the last year or so. When Jen is confident, serving well and letting loose with her forehand, she is to be reckoned with.

And praise the lord she has been hitting angles and moving her opponent around more. Her strange strategy of hitting to the center of the court had to go.

Go Jen!!!!!!!

i agree Mark except I still think when you are at your home tournament that the pressure is highest on you especially after winning today. But her confidence should be high. Kim is under pressure to show she can even win her first grand slam and Justine is under pressure to show she can win her second but Still I think Jenn will get the most hype and pressure.

Has that Scicilian EVER beat a WILLIAMS in a Grand Slam Final? I think not.

Nope, with her questionable focus and physical condition, the Rude One will not win this or any future GS singles title.

Given your negativity towards basically every played not named Williams you must think that nobody can win and that the final will be cancelled.

Disagree with the posts here. Capriati plays better when she's the hunter, not the hunted. She plays better that way too, she said she now has PERFECT preparation for the Open. No, she clearly doesn't feel any pressure.

If there's anyone who WILL feel the Yeeps, it will be Miss Kim Clijsters. She doesn't admit that she is mentally weak in big matches, and that will hurt her in the long run. This is the GOLDEN opportunity for Mrs. Leyton Hewitt

Ms. Capriati is looking very very strong to claim her 4th Major She and Justine are the strongest coming in, its too bad they are in the same half of the draw

Not Jen. not Henin and not any other player during this US Open but
Kim Clijsters has the pressure. She is world number #1 without a slam.
