Momo's withdrawal guarantees a surprise Quarterfinalist! Who will it be?!?!?

The change in the draw due to Amelie's withdrawal creates a huge opportunity for several players! One of these players will be a quarterfinalist (probably against Henin):

Jelena Dokic (11) v. Elena Baltacha
Emmanuelle Gagliardi v. Stephanie Cohen Aloro
Maria Sharapova v. Ashley Harkleroad
Saori Obata v. Elena Bovina (21)
Alexandra Stevenson (26) v. Emilie Loit
Lilia Osterloh v. Maria Elena Camerin
Cristina Torrens Valero v. Yoon Jeong Cho
Bea Bielik v. Svetlana Kuznetsova (33)

So 2nd Round, I'd go with:

Dokic v Cohen Aloro
Sharapova v Bovina
Loit v Osterloh
Cho v Kuznetsova

I expect the 3rd round to be:

Dokic v Sharapova
Loit v Kuznetsova or Cho

4th round:
Sharapova
????????- Probably Sveta, but who knows?


This is actually a great chance for Maria, Jelena, Sveta, Emilie or Cho to reach a Grand Slam QF? Who do you think it will be? I guess Alexandra is the other person in this draw who could do well, but I personally don't think she'll beat Loit.

Who do you think will win this section? I think Sharapova or Kuznetsova will get through to play Henin and possibly even make the semis!

Obata most likely...she just made the finals of Birmingham! If not her then Loit or Kuznetsova

Asagoe was the one who reached the finals of birmingham, not Obata

It's not shyness I have. It's just that I'm not one of those people who loves to open a newspaper of magazine and see myself all the time. I don't like that at all. I prefer to play my tennis which I love, and with which I've been blessed.

Loit is a good bet IMO too. I'd love to see her get through to the quarters actually. Sveta seems long overdue for a good run and this may be her best chance at a break-through.

Not Alex or Jelena. I doubt it anyways.
I hope it's Elena Bovina

Dokic is still a great grass court player , even though she's slumping. I wouldn't overlook that too much

It'll be one of Dokic, Sharapova, Loit or Kuznetsova... it'd be nice to see Dokic do something again!

The surprise quarterfinalist better be Jelena. She needs this bad.
