As much as I'd normally want to vote for JJ here, it's Anna C. She has one huge hurdle in Maria, but if she can get past that I could see her in the finals. JJ's draw is too difficult to give her the best chance. The only other one I think has any chance at all is Tati, and that would take a hugely surprising run.

I agree, I voted Anna too.

Milagros Sequera - Won title in Fes, a prestigious stop on the calender, beating Wozniak in the final (herself a world class player). Won 18 matches this year, including a win over american sensation Kimberley Ann Couts, ranked 871 in the world!

Casey Dellacqua - has had wins over Hatsumi Hamamura, Marinne Giraud, Antonia Matic, unranked Yuko Adachi and Naomi Broady this year. Accumulated an enourmous $100,249 this year. Mentally a tough player who at her best is incredibally hard to stop. One of the real contenders for the title, with Sequera, Henin and Venus

Jessica Moore - showed everyone what she was made of by winning 2 games to Svetlana Kuznetsova in Melbourne, a genuine threat to anyone and always a real contender when it comes down to crunch time

SF

LMFAO at the justification for the last 3. It's either Jelena or Chaky for me. I'm not sure which but I think I'll go with Chaky for the poll.

i voted for tati out of loyalty but if she was in the bottom half i'd say she'd have the best chance. Tati has the worst draw from 4th round. I know im discounting JJ, AI and SV but look at this

4r Henin (6 slams, 1 USO, 2007 RG Champ)
SF Serena ( 8 slams 2 USOs, AO Champ)
QF Venus (6 slams 2 USOs, Wimbly Champ)
F Sharapova (2 slams 1 USO, Defending champ)

thats a seemingly impossible task. That has to be one of the wost 4r - F draws ever. 3 GOATS:eek: and she'd have to play the last 4 GS Winners IN A ROW!! poor tati

It is strange that Nicole isn't an option in the poll, but I can see how room needed to be made for Sequera. Could Milagros be the first non-playing competitor to reach a slam final???

LOL @ the last 3 options. If any of those 3 EVER make it to a slam final or even get close to one, you know womens tennis is in trouble :tape: Anyway Sequera isin't even playing so :lol:

Probably Chakvetadze. When she beat Venus that was her 19th win in 20 matches, which included beating Jankovic in the Rosmalen final.
She's 6-0 in finals, so I think she will handle the pressure. She has to get past Sharapova.

chakvetadze! i think for me shes 2nd favourite out of the bottom half of the draw to reach the final after sharapova! kuznetsova is in crap form and was getting beaten today by szavay (a good player but shouldnt be troubling sveta in a final!) the only other players apart from them 3 are nadia petrova (mental nutcase! who anna owns 4-0 in there h2h) and nicole who hasnt played for 7 weeks and has sharapova in the 4th round!

so for me in order of most likely to reach the final from bottom half is;
sharapova
chakvetadze
kuznetsova
petrova
vadisova (in that order!)
