Well if I put 1st round, I bet that would get 50% of the votes for obvious reasons although its not realistic at all.

prob 4th or quarters, she hasn't shown very top level hardcourt tennis yet, dependent on seeding and draw, when she faces a real quality opponent we'll see, for now i'll go...quarters i guess

Quarters, because she's not as good on hardcourts. It'll all depend on her draw though.

QF or SF most probably, but anything can happen.

I bet she will go out in the QF or maybe even fourth round against a fellow russian...who´s with me? :cool:

Anyone seeded 1-8 will take her out, so I say quarterfinals at the best. And if she catches a lower seed on a hot streak like Mary Pierce or Alicia Molik, she'll be gone before that.

So far Maria hasn't been too impressive on hardcourt...Although she played a great match against an unleashed Vera Zvonareva...
Perhaps Maria can get some more rest now, since the Wimbledon circus is dying down....And she didn't play any tournaments for a while...
So, it's difficult to tell...If she has managed to improve her game a bit in the last couple of weeks...Than a semifinal is possible...Maybe more when she really manages to improve her game and when the Williams sisters don't raise their levels quickly...
But of course there are so many factors...How will JHH play? How will Myskina play? Zvonareva also impressed me...It's just difficult to tell...
Anyway, I voted for semifinals...

I think the Quarters or even Semis are very much a realistic expectation for Maria at the US Open.
Im looking forward to seeing her back in GS action and itll be a good chance to see where she's at.
The pressures off a little, since the "Wimbledon Circus" as Frank put it, has quietened down.

I'll stick my neck out and predict semi's. Maria always seems to push herself more at the slams.

But I doubt she will be victorious, because hard courts aren't her favourite surface. She has the potential to win the US Open in a few years, but not right now.

round 1 hopefully. :devil:

in all seriousness, i'd say Quarterfinals.

It can' be realistic anyway until you see the draw.

It can' be realistic anyway until you see the draw. That's right...Like I said in an other thread...Maybe they'll make a mistake with the draw and Maria will end up playing Lindsay Davenport and Amelie Mauresmo at the same time...:eek::p
