Lightbulb Predict how far Russians can go @ US Open!

Russian prediction contest: DEADLINE SUNDAY, AUG 24 at 3am (EST - New York time)

First of all, I want to congrats to Vera, Maria and Alina for making into the US OPEN main draw. Well done, girls! So proud of you! Much better results than the last three slams of the year. I knew Vera and Maria could make it as expected.

Now, the US Open draw has been released and revised. Feel free to post your predictions for Russian girls (just be realistic with what you expect from our girls ). I will post the names for winner, finalist, etc. who have from the most to least scores after Russian girls are no longer in the draw. Here are my predictions (in order based on the draw):

Enjoy the fun, the fans!

1st QTR
KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS - 3RD
DOUCHEVINA, Vera RUS - 2RD
ZVONAREVA, Vera RUS - 4RD
KRASNOROUTSKAYA, Lina RUS - 3RD
KIRILENKO, Maria RUS - 2RD
JIDKOVA, Alina RUS - 2RD

2nd QTR
PETROVA, Nadia RUS - 4RD
LIKHOVTSEVA, Elena RUS - 2RD

3rd QTR
SHARAPOVA, Maria RUS - 3RD
DEMENTIEVA, Elena RUS - 4RD

4th QTR
MYSKINA, Anastasia RUS - QF
BOVINA, Elena RUS - 4RD
SAFINA, Dinara RUS - 2RD

C'mon girls, I want full of surprises this year and make me eat my words!

I just don't want to even think about that. Too subjective.

I like fresh2flash predictions, I hope that yesterday's Alyona's bad match was just weather. I am worried about Lina's tendency to completely crumble against big opponents in big matches.

Tenn_ace is obviously predicting The All-Belgian final, and that in the third tournament in a row Henin will slaughter all our Russians. No way!

OK, I'll give it a try.

Kuznetsova 3Rd ( but I have a feeling that this could be wrong and could be a big surprise ).
Douchevina 1rd
Zvonareva SF
Lina K. QF
Masha K. 2nd Rd
Alinka 2nd Rd.

Nadya R16
Alyona L. QF

Masha S. 3rd Rd
Elena D. R16

Nastya SF
Elena B. R16
Dinara 2nd Rd ( this has a potential for a surprise too, she is definitely a darkhorse )

It's funny how some of you are picking Elena D. to get past the 4th round...
