Re: Ana Konjuh
Kulichkova seems to be on a good run here, but if we'll talk about realistic chances I think she'll just repeat last year's result (SF). Looking at stats and numbers Ana is a clear favorite, to put it mildly.
Kulichkova did reach #3 just half a year (or so) ago, but she did it more by playing many tournaments (15 in 2011+doubles in almost all of them) than by making some incredible results. Her only GA title is the Mexican one and even on G1's she didn't thrive all that often. I think Ana will take care of her if she is allowed to get into her zone.
But I'm still stunned with the lack of streaming...not so much for the semis, but a final in which girls from Ukraine (solid tennis nation), Czech Republic (a genuine tennis power), Canada (country rising fast on the tennis map) and Croatia (long tradition of great tennis talents) is not enough for them to put the cameras on. I'm sure there'd be more than a good number of interested fans from these respective countries who'd love to see the girls final, even it's "only" for the doubles title.
