Scouting Marti's potential opponents

This are the people Marti will probably be beating on her way to winning OZ.

Razzano
Arn
Chladkova
Coetzer
Serena
Venus
Clijsters

any insights on them? (especially the ones in the earlier rounds)

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

as usual in AO, Martina's real challengers only appear in the second week...

She should get through easily enough. Up until maybe the Quarters.
But its not gonna be Serena anymore.

I guess Amanda or Barbara will be a good fourth round test for Martina - test out her serve and some strategy she hasn't used often - coming to the net!

Martina's opponent could turn out to be Conchita or an unseeded player...

Hopefully she conserve energy in the early round for that potential semi final date with Venus...

I read on an AO thread that Lina Krasnoroutskaya will take Serena's slot in the draw as the 33th seed...hmmm

I think it's more likely to be Capriati than Clijsters in the final.
