:lol: If Maria plays like this week then an in-form Golovin or Kirilenko will take her out for sure. :o

Easy draw for Sharapova, really. Either Kirilenko or Golovin in 2nd Round...never lost to either right? I hope Golovin smashes Sharapova.

oh really, well I don't expect Sharapova to go through to QF then.

I wonder if JJ can take a set off Justine this time?

I hope Serena can play well here, she's not used to playing 3 weeks in a row!

What a minefield for Serena - Schnyder-Dementieva-Kuznetsova-Ivanovic-Henin :help:

Ivanovic v Sharapova :devil:

Yeah, that's annoying already..
Elena and Serena play on sunday, and will probably play against each other again so early. Kuzy-Serena again 3rd week in a row. Jelena-Justine is like the most predictable draw ever.

Serena is not Venus, somehow patty seems to trouble Serena although she cannot find a way to beat Venus, but then again she has only beaten serena on clay.

If she beat Bartoli, she could win some.

Considering the form Kirilenko and Golovin have been in the indoor court, she has of one of the toughest 2R matches for a top 4 seed.

come on Masha be good this time :cool:

She's never come close to beating Serena outside of clay, and the two times she did, it was incredibly close. Patty obviously can trouble anyone, but I don't think her game matches up very well against Serena indoors, and her form hasn't been spectactular since San Diego really.

Nice to see that a tournament with such a great field and with so many good players will be downgraded next year and probably be gone completely by 2009. Well done, WTA :yeah:

:rolleyes:

If Serena wins Moscow it would not surprise me to see her pull out of Zurich. She would be playing 3 long weeks in a row if she does.

Hope no one withdraws! Should be a very competitive tournament. And some of these Rd 1 matches... :drool:

That would be awesome dude!!!

.... if the left thigh holds on. :tape:

Going through Patty, Kuzzy, Dementieva, Sharpova, Ivanovic and Henin in the same tournament is going to put some serious stress on that thigh... she might easily injured herself if she's not careful.

Well, here's to a great tournament! :yeah:

BuTtErFrEnA
Oct 13th, 2007, 05:43 PM
well not really....the only person who can realllllly and i mean reallllllly make her run around like there is no tomorrow is JH and that would be in the finals...on these courts her serve and ground game make it easier for her not to have to do so much running unless she has a poor service day....



btw who said masha has an easy draw??? in her 06 form then probably....but in this form this is one of the worst draws she could hope for....look at JH's draw then talk about easy...the only people that could potentially trouble her are in the other quarter/half....semis or finals opponents....

LOL...second that. Wish I was going to Zurich..what an insane line up from start to finish!! Best looking draw for Mauresmo in awhile.

Tennisaddict
Oct 13th, 2007, 07:47 PM
Wow, this has to be the best line up in the fall since the US Open. Only player missing is Venus. If Serena gets trough this draw and beats them all her confidence will be restored. I hope the matches will be hardfought and full of drama.

Exactly, Zurich is a fantastic event, always has been, can't believe they're getting rid of it :fiery:

Anyway, the draw is awesome, can you imagine if Venus and Hingis played and Lindsay requested a WC :eek:

Could prove to be the tournament of the year
