Very good sign that you (or rather, your system) have Daniilidou higher than Dokic. Some would probably laugh at Dementieva having better odds than Dokic, but that's of course where the draw sets in.

Instinctively, I would grant around 70% to Serena Williams for winning the title, as opposed to the 48.8% you operate with. If we ran this tournament 10 times, I would expect her to win 7 times. That may even be modest.

If we go by last year's form, she wins more than 60% of the tournaments she enters. Considering this is a Tier II (fewer rounds, weaker field than her average tournament) her winning percentage should be even higher.

What am I missing that the computer puts emphasis on? I sincerely believe that an oddsmaker, who goes by your chance distribution, will be vulnerable to heavy betting on Serena.

So... would that be like 2-1 odds that Serena wins the tournament? I wish Vegas had those odds... I'd put my life savings on it.

I think Hantuchova has more chance than Amelie to win, because shes been playing well lately while Amelie is just coming off injury.

probability of winning after round 2

The fact that serena, although she won the australian open, played a few tough 3 setters and was below her normal best. This is probably the main reason why her probability has come down to say evens.

Probs after round 2:
Serena Williams (USA) 47.4% 69.8%
Amelie Mauresmo (FRA) 23.1% 49.8%
Daniele Hantuchova (SVK) 9.4% 24.2%
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) 7.0% 14.4%
Elena Dementieva (RUS) 6.5% 19.3%
Jelena Dokic (YUG) 4.2% 11.9%
Janette Husarova (SVK) 1.5% 3.8%
Magui Serna (ESP) 0.9% 6.8%
