There is a maximum of 10 choices you can put in a poll. I had to reserve one for the 'Other' option. Based on ranking, the last player option was Likhovtseva or Sprem. I put Sprem. :p

Some Finals I would love to see:
Serena vs. Elena
Serena vs. Venus
Serena vs. Petrova
Serena vs. Molik
or
Serena vs. Jankovic

Lindsay was playing well at IW but ran into a buzz saw in Kim in the final. I do think that she'll be more rested physically and emotionally than the sisters. She also will have had much more time to have prepared on the clay. I think that either sister could take Lindsay out (ESP Rena) but right now I am gonna pick Lindsay. After wall of their first round matches I may change my opinion *wink*.

BTW...Myskina, Alicia, Elena, Nadia, Vera, and lots of other could cause upsets but I think the real top three contenders would be Lindsay, Venus, and Serena.

I pick Davenport by the way. She was playing great in Indian Wells despite losing in the finals... and she's had plenty of rest going in since she skipped Miami. Also, she probably used some of her off time preparing for and getting used to the green dirt.

Lindsay also played awesome here last year, so I think she'll repeat. Good luck, Dav.

I really don't imagine these players beating Myskina. Now, Anastasia could prove me 100% wrong, but she seems to have found a wonderful clay-court rythym, and at RG, she played against quite a few powerful, big-babe top players who tried to blast her off the court, and all failed miserably. I imagine the same thing happening again, but I could be wrong.

Conchi is always a threat on clay...but Amelia has only been good to conchi, not fantastically great for some reason....I give her Amelia Island to warm up for Charleston....

I personally think Venus might have a shot...

go conchi!!

Would you say this is her biggest title to date? I know in late 03 she won another tier 2 in the fall. I don't however think that it had the caliber of players that Amelia had the year she won. I would say taht this is by far her biggest title.

my clay eyes are on lindsay...

has had plenty of time to rest + been above ave compared to the majority of fieald + and has a nice clay resume.

clay success ;
03 : 10-3
04 : 13-3
career : 100-32

having said that , serena , venus , the belgians , and a russian or two will make it tuff for her i think.

IMO pennetta faced some fairly lowly opponants in bogata/acapulco , not in lidsay's radar yet.

yeah that's so right. it's not like schnyder has beaten anyone good on green clay or is having a good year. i mean i guess on this surface she beat no.1 capriati whe she world number 1 in straight sets, serena in the year she lost 3 matches, mauresmo, pierce, davenport the week after she won this tournament (6-3, 6-2), dementieva twice (6-3, 6-1), sanchez-vicario etc - but what does that mean?. she 's in the top 8 in the champions race as well but again you're just so right - pisnik and drake are more likely to win.

Prizeidiot
Apr 2nd, 2005, 06:22 AM
Elena will win.... Kim's not playing right? :P

Elena goes pretty good on clay, most of the other options tend to prefer other surfaces (Myskina, Conchita and Penetta, though she's not on the list, like clay too) Also Elena is actually in reasonable form.

Davenport and Williams will be the toughest opposition, especially Serena, seeing as Elena is yet to beat her.

Nope, Justine will win Charleston.

In Amelia Island, I just see Davenport or one of the Williams as the winner, really. One of the top russians, especially Dementieva, can cause an upset, but I doubt it.

Apr 3rd, 2005, 05:34 AM
I think it is a safe bet to forget about Pennetta. She is yet to prove she can beat top players. I'm going with my heart and picking Myskina to win the title. She is due for a big tournament.

Umm hellohas anyone else noticed what surface this is being played on haha ... I have to go with Venus who lost one clay court match the entire season than after that most likly Serena or Davenport cant beliueve i would picl davenport for a clay title but she is far and away a better player than everyone else excpet the sisters even on clay.
