(1) Davenport def. (Q) Zheng - end of the road for Jie as she runs into Lindzilla
(7) Dechy def. Martinez - this will be a close match but Nathalie will pull it out

Bartoli (Q) def. (3) Myskina - Nastya is in terrible form and will collapse against a red hot Bartoli
Na Li (Q) def. (8) Schnyder - I am a little biased but I really think Na will take this one ... she took Patty to 3 close sets last week and is familiar with Patty's game now

Jankovic def. Farina Elia - Jelena coming back into form
(4) Kuznetsova def. Mirza - written and done

Hantuchova def. Likhotseva - 3 close sets between the lanky girls
Bovina def. (2) Serena - I have a feeling that Serena is not 100%

I agree with most of what you say.

I think Schnyder will beat Na Li - although it will be very tight.

I predicted Mirza to beat Kuznetsova and it is looking close so far - Sania is just coming back from a 3-0 deficit, so maybe.

I dont think Bovina can spring a surprise against Serena, but maybe.

I think that Daniela will breeze by Elena in straights..
And Do you think that Bovina is 100%..no.. Serena could beat her either way!! other than that.. i agree ;)

I agree, isn't Bovina coming back from injury? I mean she's only played a couple matches since (Linz??)...Serena will beat her. :bounce:

Lena if at her best can beat almost anyone. She's a top 15 player and certain posters are treating her like shit in this thread.

If Danki play like today and Lena L, like today, Danki will wins 6-4 6-3... but if both players plays at her best, maybe Danki will wins like 6-4 7-5 6-2...

I haven't seen Bovina play after her injury so I don't know how her form is. But from what I can remember from last year she's one hell of a player. If her New Haven form shows up she will breezy by Dani. But she was pushed to three sets today so I doubt she is in excellent form. She won't upset Serena.

I think Bovina is a great player, but she's not experienced and talented enough to cope with a Serena Williams at 2%.

myskina will crush bartoli who is prob tired from qualifying. nastya has a lot of rest! (although that's not a good thing... :p)

(1) Davenport def. (Q) Zheng
(7) Dechy def. Martinez
(3)Myskina (Q) def. (3) Bartolli
(8) Schnyder def. Na Li (Q)
Jankovic def. Farina Elia
(4) Kuznetsova def. Mirza
Hantuchova def. Likhotseva
(2) Serena def. Bovina

bovina is a tough competitor, but she's playing serena!~~ on her best day she can take a set off serena, i don't think serena has anything to worry about, she'll take care of business.

I thought Kuz was gonna destroy her after being up 4-0 in the first...looks like I was way wrong.

What a crazy tournament it's been so far:eek:


(1) Davenport def. (Q) Zheng- easy
(7) Dechy def. Martinez- I agree it could be a tough match

(3) Myskina def. Bartoli (Q)- Myskina should start picking up her form by now
(8) Schnyder def. Na Li (Q)- Patty's been playing well, and is the better player

Jankovic def. Farina Elia- just a guess
Mirza def. (4) Kuznetsova- I knew this would happen;)

Hantuchova def. Likhotseva- Dani must have played well to beat Molik, so I give her the edge here
(2) Serena def. Bovina- could be a tough match for Serena, but Bovina isn't fresh either

Davenport def Zheng 6-2, 6-4. Zheng consistant but unless Lindsay is way off she has no chance.

Dechy def Martinez 6-2, 6-2. Conchita has won too many matches lately and she usually needs to throw in a bad loss and i think Nat will get back in the groove after a tough R1 win and be too solid.

Myskina def Bartoli 6-2, 3-6, 6-3. Bartoli could win if Myskina hands it to her but Ana can't keep losing.

Schnyder def Na Li 6-3, 6-1. Patty will play well this week and win again.

Jankovic defeated Silvia

Mirza defeated Kuznetsova

Hantuchova def Likhovtseva 6-0, 6-0. Don't really think that will be the score but Likhovtseva has been horrible this year in every match i have seen of her and going to a 3rd set breaker with Sfar is really bad for a top 20 player.

Serena def Bovina 6-4, 6-3. I don't underestimate Bovina's ability but her game is needs match player to be at it's best and she hasn't had any. If she's fire will get a set at least.
