Looks like the top 8 in different orders are pre much rock solid.. so the last two spots are up for grabs..
I still stick to Rubin and Amy though Amelie is close behind..

what is up with this "mary is on when she is "on" and unstoppable"......

when serena and venus are on, there is nothing mary can do, when they are on, their serves are on, etc. take venus for example, 2000 she took out lindsay in the finals of Bank of The West 6-1 6-4, she had over 15 aces I belive, one up to 125mph.

Now you cannot tell me that mary on, would compete with this, when mary is on, she doesn't take away the players games. when serena or venus are 'on" Mary's game wouldn't even be able to matter, cuz it wouldn't compete, she wouldn't get a chance to show her game.

Follow Me! @CedricEarl

Obviously you haven't seen Mary "on". Well that's quite understandable since Mary is rarely, yes, rarely on these days.

Serena( against Momo wimby ´02 or Lisa wimby´00)
Venus( against Jen U.S.open´01, after 4-1, bye bye Jen)
Lindsay( against Serena u.s. open ´00, Hingis Oz open ´00)
Justine( the second-set against Kim at ´03 U.S. open)
Kim ( whenever she plays Momo. DANG, does she own her or what?!)
Monica( too bad her in-zone, hasn´t been often lately.)
Mary P( She can blow ANYONE away)

Always bet on black!
Can you handle the truth?

Mary on is scary, as we can judge by the scorelines.

I notice that in-the-zone players are more often than not Type 'A' players, so players who play their game and take it to their opponents.

I see fewer Type 'B' players, i.e. players who mess around with their opponents and prevent them from playing their games, eg martina h, arantxa

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

In a sense, it does makes sense Moby. The type A players the matches are always in their hands. Either miss or they hit....when they are in the zone, they ain´t missing and then you get DESTRUCTION as a result.

But don't forget the type B players still can forch the type A players into many errors. So in that sense, matches ain't always in their hands.

Mary isn't the only one...

Schnyder, Maleeva, Bovina, Dementieva... can look like the greatest player ever some days.

I totally forgot about Patty.
She's such an inconsistent and moody girl. So unpredictable..
Maggie..she plays as if she were the best in the world against certain players.
