Venus, Golovin or Jankovic

Kanepi will upset Petrova ;) *hopefully*

Venus has a nice draw, drawing Patty Schnyder as the top four seed in her quarter :lol:

I think (and hope) Nadia will defend though :devil: She should definitely make the final at least with her draw.

Vaidisova
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:13 PM
Nadia

Slampova
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:13 PM
Patty is having no luck at all this year :( Venus will win. If not, it will be Golovin or Jankovic...

the only first round match result that i am interested in is the venus - rezai match.

i would love venus to win amelia island again though :hearts:

Patty has been far from lucky this year, hasn't she? :awww:

Brooklyn90
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:15 PM
Vee is actually quite a good clay courter, so I voted her :)

frenchie
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:15 PM
I think Venus will win

But drawing patty can be a tough second round!

Mar 31st, 2007, 09:15 PM
There is NO clear favorite in this one. But I would love for Venus to win. And I think she will if she plays well.

Poova
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:16 PM
Patty has been far from lucky this year, hasn't she? :awww:
And there's no way she's going to defend her Charleston final points unless half the field withdraw :sad::tape:

starin
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:16 PM
i hope venus does well but after that shiteous performance against sharapova i'm a little worried. I could see Venus losing to Azarenka. Azarenka is just the type of player venus would lose to. Young, has some talent and so Venus will proceed to hit the self destruct button.

-sugi-
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:17 PM
I will go for Nadia

Nadia will be tough to beat on clay, so I voted for Nadia :)

maybe Vera can do some damage on her favourite surface also.

KBdoubleu
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:19 PM
Venus actually has quite a good draw for being unseeded. I think she'll win.

Venus has a great draw...she can do it.

~Eclipsed~
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:23 PM
Venus might have to play Schnyder second round. Wow what a draw.

Thank god Venus has entered this event. It adds so much more interest to the field!:D

~Eclipsed~
Mar 31st, 2007, 09:25 PM
And as much as i would like to see Venus win, i don't think she will. I think she'll make the Quarters of Semis at best.

Mar 31st, 2007, 09:25 PM
I think Nadia will win

Vamos.

It would be nice to see Venus win and she surely can. Jankovic and Petrova also have a good shot.

Mar 31st, 2007, 10:08 PM
Venus if she gets her clay court game on.

Mark Spruce
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:09 PM
I am going for JJ

I hope it's either Venus or Ana, I think it will be Venus...

trufanjay
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:12 PM
Venus must do well this clay season if she doesn't want a tough draw at the French. Anything less than a semifinal here is not what she wants.

FrenchY52
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:13 PM
Tati was playing very well on clay during FC after beeing coached by Goven and Courteau so hopefully this training week with Loic will pay.. It's very open for the title but i'd say Jankovic, Petrova, Golovin or Venus

Mr.Kardashian
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:21 PM
jankovic or venus... but good luck to stosur molik pratt petrova and kanepi

Thkmra
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:22 PM
Venus...just because, She surely must be dissapointed t with her poor showing in Miami, and is very intent on showing her 'new' form!

hurricanejeanne
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:30 PM
I hope Tatiana does well here.
Nadia will probably win. Venus has a decent shot at the title herself.

AcesHigh
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:33 PM
I picked Petrova, but if Venus plays better than her horrible match against Maria, she should get to the final.

Let's not forget that Venus(when not self-destructing) is excellent on clay, better than most.

cellophane
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:35 PM
Based on everybody's level right now and their game on clay, it's gotta be Nadia.

Dexter
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:37 PM
Venus. She will be inspired by Serena.

Iceland
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:40 PM
Venus has her chances especially after Serena's victory but I don't know, I can't see her with the trophy.
I expect Nadia to win even if I deeply want Tati to win.

40-0
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:49 PM
Duh V!!!
U can do it V!!! its ur time!

Im predicting Patty will win :angel: and finally gain her first win over Venus :D :devil: ;)

Frode
Mar 31st, 2007, 10:55 PM
I have Nadia as the favorite, she played well against Justine a few days ago. Even if she is looking a bit heavy these days. If not her then Venus.

I really hope Venus can win this one. That would make 2 titles for her. If she doesn't want a tough draw at the French she better do well starting now.

Isn't Patty a tough draw? I don't know... I mean Venus always beats her... but Patty gives her trouble. ;)

Isn't Patty a tough draw? I don't know... I mean Venus always beats her... but Patty gives her trouble. ;)

getting a seed that is not playing well at the moment, that you lead 8-0 in the h2h as an unseeded is pretty lucky.
well, you can count on Venus to play worse than her bad playing opponent on some occasion but that is a pretty good draw on paper to me.

even if i'm pissed because i wanted both of them late in the tournament.

to answer the initial question Nadia is the favorite, definitely.

Craigy
Mar 31st, 2007, 11:29 PM

No competition ??? And you even mention Patty as an "maybe competitior" ??? :spit: :spit: :spit:

Check the draw once again... :help: :rolleyes:

nadia is the first seeded, defending champion and is her favourite surface
patty always play her best tennis in clay and specially good in american green clay

this is the worse surface for daniela
jelena hasnt done anything on clay
ana is great on clay but she is out of shape same with dinara
li is too erratic for the long rallies on clay
golovin seems always injured:lol:
venus is too unpredictable she could easily lose in early rounds, and if she serve and play like in miami she "will" be out in early rounds:tape:
i never count the floaters and in this time krajicek shuai and vera souldnt be a real problem for nadia

so yes thats pretty much what i think

I think that Vee has a really good chance at this one. I hope she wins it so that it builds her confidence and prepares her for another at charleston!

Bring back the Memphis final form, please.

Also I disagree with those who say that Venus has an easy draw. I mean look at her 1st round :help:

VeeReeDavJCap81
Apr 1st, 2007, 01:52 AM
Venus SHOULD win this, she has good records over pretty much all the players in the draw. Hopefully she can get revenge against Tati from Charleston '05.

aisha
Apr 1st, 2007, 01:55 AM
I like Venus draw. :)
She absolutely, positively owns Patty. :devil:

I'm not fond of seeing Jankovic's name on that side, but it's no guarantee either way. :shrug:

wow... is venus leading the poll? Venus is not Serena. Serena's success does not mean Venus' will succeed too. Venus needs matchplay. I just hope she plays well, I don't care about the result. No more meltdown from Venus, that's all I want.
Petrova should win. She's playing well this year.

Schnyder,It's the time to prove yourself! Venus is not Serena.
Shuai,Hard court has gone,but you should not lose confidence!Expect your wonderful victories.
Jie,clay is back,Molik is not your opponent,like paszek in Miami,you can do it!
your ranks can not decline at all times
Tian Tian,fight from qualifier,you should make your best to obtain more points
like your saying in your blog.

Na,The champion,can you get it?
you can win more titles,such as this Bausch & Lomb.

I want Venus to win....Venus did enter this tournament because of that loss...she's angry with herself as should be....here's to you Venus...plus I'm sure she's tired of hearing about how well Serena can do and hearing negative things about her...as well as seeing Serena do so well....she may love her sister but she also wants to win...so I say Venus:)

I voted for JJ!

I think this surface should be perfect for her game!

Also Venus, Dani and Nadia have great chances IMO! It should be a good tournament!

Maybe Patty?! It would be a wonderful story, But with the current state of her game, I don't see her getting past Venus.
