Australian Open 2009 Bracket Challenge

As you can see from this thread Give Me Your Quarters, Semis, Final, & Champion we did that last year at the US Open and VeeTennisFan was the first winner. Title defense?

You will need to view a draw to participate which can be done here: http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/.../ws/index.html

Anyways the rules are as follows:

Predict a Round of 16 1 point
Predict a Quarter Finalist 2 points
Predict a Semi Finalist 4 points
Predict a Finalist 8 points
Predict the Champion 16 points
80 points to be had

I'll start it off, and will keep track of everything. Entries will be locked Sunday @ 12am Eastern Time. Thanks for anyone who cares to participate.

Round of 16
Jankovic vs Bammer
Szavay vs Zvonareva
Safina vs Cornet
Wozniacki vs Ivanovic

V. Williams vs Vesnina
Cibulkova vs Dementieva
Kuznetsova vs Radwanska
Azarenka vs S. Williams

Quarterfinals
Jankovic vs Zvonareva
Safina vs Wozniacki

V. Williams vs Dementieva

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
