(1) Clijsters d. Liu 6-0 6-0
No comments necessary.
(27) Kuznetsova d. Pennetta 6-3 6-3
Flavia's a good player, but Sveta is proving to be a solid top 30 player on tour... and just too good for Flavia.
Sprem d. (17) Shaughnessy 3-6 7-5 6-2
Meghann's injured and has just been awful lately. K-Lina hasn't proven a damn thing against serious competition, or even won matches on hardcourt... but I think Meghann may just give this match away.
(13) Zvonareva d. Kurhajcova 6-2 6-1
Vera's just better in every way...
Bartoli d. (9) Hantuchova 6-4 6-3
Daniela is just so far from where she should be. However, Marion can really, really bad at times too... as proved by her 6-1 6-2 loss to Marissa Irvin. If Marion plays well, she'll win.
(18) Schnyder d. Bielik 7-5 6-4
This match should be ugly... I don't want to watch it, let alone comment on it.
(26) Krasnoroutskaya d. Barna 6-3 7-6
Lina should win, but Barna is one of those annoying players that does everything well and hangs in there. Lina has to realize this isn't a cakewalk, but I think she'll pull through.
(5) Mauresmo d. Widjaja 7-5 6-1
I think Momo will come out extremely shaky, but find her way. Angie can't hurt a fly.. and this is a good practice match for Amelie.
(3) Davenport d. Callens 6-3 6-3
Sorry Belgian fans, but even if Lindsay is injured... she'll still hit Els off the court.
(28) Raymond d. Poutchek 6-3 6-4
I really don't know anything about Tatiana, so I'll just take the standard score for Lisa.
(19) Petrova d. Castano 6-1 6-3
Should be routine for Nadia... Castano can't hurt her.
(14) Coetzer d. Lastra 6-2 6-3
Again, I know nothing of Lastra except she was a good college player.
(12) Martinez d. Taylor 6-1 6-2
I still have nightmares of Sarah's match with Jenny in Miami... Conchi should breeze.
(24) Suarez d. Roesch 6-4 6-3
Paola has had an amazing hard season, and Roesch only beats Dementieva.
Casanova d. (25) Daniilidou 5-7 6-4 7-5
Myriam has the game to beat a struggling Eleni... and should do it. She should be able to blast many winners by Eleni.
(8) Rubin d. Vento 6-4 6-0
Completely dependent on Chanda's health... if she's fine, this will be easy. If not, Maria will work her to death, and could pull the upset.
(6) Capriati d. Torrens Valero 6-3 6-2
Jenny gives away a few games every match... the only reason I give Cristina 5 games. Total mismatch.
Loit d. (31) Stevenson 7-6 7-6
Alexandra is a challenger player... and will finally be playing them after her indoor points are gone.
(23) Dechy d. Mattek 6-4 6-3
I saw Mattek once and she sucked... and Dechy's been injured. No idea what to expect, so standard score.
(11) Dementieva d. Vaskova 7-5 3-6 6-4
I REALLY don't like the way Alyona has been playing lately... and I think an early loss is possible. I know nothing about Alena though.
(15) Sugiyama d. Martinez-Granados 6-1 6-2
Conchita never does anything vs. a good player. Next.
(20) Farina Elia d. Salerni 6-4 6-4
Know nothing about Salerni. Silvia is a lame duck seed.
(29) Schiavone d. Fislova 6-3 6-4
Francesca is a dangerous player in this section... and could well reach the QF.
(33) Srebotnik d. Drake 6-2 6-2
Blah. Maureen's old, and Katarina is whatever. I don't give a shit about this match.
(7) Myskina d. Nagyova 6-1 ret.
Nastya is coming into US Open in TERRIBLE form. Henrieta's been hurt, which is a break for Nastya so she can maybe find some form. I laugh at the people who think Nastya will reach the QF's with how she's playing...
(30) Serna d. Cho 6-3 6-4
If this was late-2002, early-2003... I'd take Cho in a heartbeat... but she's just not the same player now.
Gagliardi d. (22) Dokic 6-4 7-6
Jelena has been practicing well... I don't care. Go Emmanuelle.
(10) Maleeva d. Asagoe 6-1 6-2
I like Asagoe... but there's a reason Japanese players never do well except on grass and fast carpet. All Maggie.
(16) Bovina d. Cervanova 6-1 6-1
Lena is gonna be a scary girl for top seeds to face later on here... if she plays anything like she did against Coetzer and Jennifer... she's a THREAT FOR THE TITLE.
(21) Pistolesi d. Schaul 6-4 3-6 7-5
Now let's relax about Anna. She won 2 crap clay tournies over nobodies. She was down 6-0 5-1 to Vera... and Jenny practically gave a set to her. I know Anna's a fighter, but let's not go crazy on Anna here... remember that she's just a wall.
(32) Mikaelian d. Weingartner 6-1 6-0
I often see Marlene lose horribly by this score. Why not again?
(2) Henin-Hardenne d. Kapros 6-3 7-5
Make fun of Aniko's serve all you want... but this girl has Top 20 like groundstrokes. Justine will still win, but Aniko isn't someone she'll just roll over.
