* I can NOT actually predict against Venus. I completely concede that Lindsay is the favorite, nor have I seen anything that indicates Venus will win. I don't care. This is an all-heart/no head prediction.

** It would be really cool to have two Japanese players in the QFs.

*** Because of all the blondes on tour, Vera is theone I want to sleep with. And I have absolutely no faith in Dementieva under any kind of pressure.

I utterly loath the 32 seed system. But with three players not seeded in the top sixteen into the 4th round, I have to concede the system has SOME validity.

Bottom half is true to form, and I think it will stay that way into the next round. ;)

^ You think Elena D. will beat Vera Z. ? I can see Capriati struggling against Ai too. I hope they prove me wrong though :)

no, I think it's more fun to listen to your girlie rantings, especially when it looks like you are with your period (and I know you are not "technically a girl", just behave like a rejected teenager).

Ouch. It hurts. Deep down inside. Anyone got a band-aid?

Ah predictions, predictions. Oh BTW....I am done talking to you asshole (since you call me stupid I am gonna call you asshole every time) but whenever you post anything, I will refute itWell, I posted the results of the third round matches. You can start 'refuting' now. Or is this another example of you talking out of your ass without being able to back it up?

BTW, I posted over this thread too. http://wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=131582&page=2 Could you please get fucking moving? Youhaven't refuted one single thing since yousiad that you'd refute it, and I quote 'whenever' I post 'anything'. Stop acting like a dmumbass with no credibility and refute something already.

I enjoy Volcana's threads. They sure beat the "Graf is forgotten", "The True Story" crap we have to put up with.

Look forward to your predictions for the semifinals.

:tape: Can't be a 14-12 third set at the Open ;)There will be a return to tradition for the ALL-JAPAN FINAL!:) There will be a big ceremony, and the winner will be made an honorary Samurai.

Dammit! :(

You spoiled my surprise prediction for Saturday....though, for what it's worth, I predict it'll be 15-13 in the third. No tie-breaker.

Round of 16 Predictions- Quarterfinal Match-Ups:

OK, here we go:

(1) Justine Henin-Hardenne def. (14) Nadia Petrova 6-3 7-5

(27) Mary Pierce def. (9) Svetlana Kuznetsova 3-6 7-6 6-4

Shinobu Asagoe def. (29) Eleni Daniilidou 5-7 6-2 6-4

(11) Venus Williams def. (5) Lindsay Davenport 2-6 6-3 7-6*

(12) Ai Sugiyama def. (8) Jennifer Capriati 2-6 7-6 6-2**

(3) Serena Williams def. Patty Schnyder 6-3 6-1

(10) Vera Zvonareva def. (6) Elena Dementieva 6-3 2-6 7-5

(2) Amelie Mauresmo def. (16) Francesca Schiavone 6-3 7-6

*Venus is a fighter, but this third set tie-break could go either way
** Ai's been playing so damn clean, it's hard to think that she won't win.


So the (predicted) quarterfinal match-ups are:

(1) Justine Henin-Hardenne vs. (27) Mary Pierce

Shinobu Asagoe vs. (11) Venus Williams

(12) Ai Sugiyama vs. (3) Serena Williams

(10) Vera Zvonareva vs. (2) Amelie Mauresmo ^

^ Two mental nutcases in grand slam matches...this should be good!

Good Luck Ladies!
