Who cares about seed haha. Um...I'm voting for Schnyder, first round. Schnyder, Dementieva, Hingis and Safina are the weak links in the top ten right now.

Safina is 0-3 as a top ten player, with losses to Hantuchova, Chakvetadze, and Pratt.

Dinara was ill last fall. And that Pratt match meant nothing.
Dinara has a tough draw, but she'll do well here.

yeah i think schnyder deserves to get out of top ten

after gold coast, 2 victories over sharapova, with others over mauresmo,clijsters,dementieva,kuznetsova, i dont see how dinara could be a weak link

Schnyder always does well at AO. The surface really suits her style of game, so she'll do well again.

Safina is 0-3 as a top ten player, with losses to Hantuchova, Chakvetadze, and Pratt.

There is no shame in losing to Pratt :o

But goldenlox is right that match was meaningless. Safina did just win a title a few days before.

But I tend to think Safina isn't so great. I'm still surprised she has made top 10.

Er Garbin. Hantuchova wont lose in the first round. Out of the top ten, maybe Safina... she's too one dimensional and at any time she could have a shocker. Martina rarely gets beaten easily, and if she does it's done with brute power. Martina loves rebound ace and I believe that when she gets enough matches under her belt she'll give the title a shot.

Personlly i think Santangelo will be the 1st seed to go & the 1st Top 10 player to go will be Safina. But i could be wrong though.

The first seeds to lose (in the 1st round) will be Anna-Lena Groenefeld :tape:, Marion Bartoli :o, Anabel Medina Garrigues ;) and hopefully Kata Srebotnik (cos thatll mean Casey won a round at AO :D)

First Top 10er to lose will be Elena Dementieva (R3), Dinara Safina (R3) and Patty Schnyder (R3)

Dementieva does not exactly have the best record at Melbourne Park
so she is good odds ;)

last year people picked patty to be the first top ten player to lose, but she reached the quarterfinals.

i see she still has doubters. :lol:

at AO, patty's pretty solid in the opening rounds. my pick is hingis.

I hope the first top 10'er out is Safina cos she's Martina's 3rd round opponent!

Germy could do anything at this point. :help:, but she really needs to take advantage of playing a qualifier.

Santalogo or Hingis.


Hingis better be careful of Dechy. Dechy knows how to play and is an experienced player.

Yes, It's a very difficult 1st rd. That being said, I believe Martina is 6-0 against Nat, including 2 wins over her in 2006 so I hope she has the confidence to get through this! :eek: Come on Martina!

I think 1 of the top 5 will be out in the 1sr rd, but I don't know who?!

And defeat to Sophie Ferguson in Gold Coast...that was also :rolleyes:

Pin def. Sharapova
Wozniak def. Jancovic
Foretz def. Dementieva
Perry def. Mauresmo

& that is all !!!!!!

Masha and Jelena will not lose 1st rd, no way!

Foretz and Perry might be able to do it though, considering LenaD and Momo's current form!? :eek:
