It SHOULD be Jankovic over Serena or Serena over Jankovic. I'd say a 3setter either way. I'd be surprised to see any other winner.

Serena will beat Jankovic or Zvonareva

Sharapova will withdraw before the start of the tournament citing a fake injury or fatigue but the real reason is she's so afraid to get her ass kikced by Serena!

You just watch. She played really well in AI and her draw looks quite easy to be honest.

I expect both,Cornet and Cibulkova, to fall early in Charleston,because of the younger guns tend to not back up their breakthrough the week after ;)

What is going to happen: Serena won't get beat by Patty Schnyder, she won't get injured and she will reach her second Charleston Final

I don't expect Maria to do well against top players on clay, Jelena beat Dementieva and Zvonareva in Miami and while this isn't Serena's best surface, I think she'll make it to the final, where JJ can avenge her Miami loss. :D

Maria will stun Serena on clay and finally gets her revenge. Mark my words

the semis i think will be'

jj vs lena d

serena vs anna chakvetadze

jj will breaze through, as will lena d
serena will strugle but come through with her fight, anna will come through her weak half beating a tierd cornet in 3rd round and safina in 3 sets in the qtrs.

No offence but juding by Amelia Island Maria won't be stunning anyone who is a seed, on clay anytime soon.

She'll have a tough battle to get the quarters with Medina there. But no doubt she is up for the challenge as ever.

Yeah, but we never know... Players like Maria or Serena can overcome from a bad performance to an impressive win :worship:

I think Serena should be disappointed if she loses to anyone not named Jelena Jankovic here.

Sadly, the depth here is not that impressive..especially for a Tier I.

The mere fact everyone's expecting JJ/Serena leads me to believe it's not happening. Draws like these are usually landmines. I expect most of the top seeds to flame early. I think Szavay (or Safina) and Cibulkova make deep runs here. Possibly Cornet (or Cirstea) as well. Schnyder is bound to have a good run on clay, and if it's anywhere, it's going to be here.

Cibulkova/Zvonareva
Dementieva/Radwanska
Safina or Szavay/Cornet or Cirstea
Williams/Sharapova or Medina Garrigues

From there it's anyone's guess. I personally would like a Zvonareva/Dementieva SF (I could have gotten this TI SF between these two for third time in five TIs :rolleyes: ) and Safina/Williams, leading to a Dementieva/Williams final, which I unfortunately wouldn't be able to attend. But I doubt any of those people will be in the semifinals.

Dementieva def. Schnyder 6-4 2-6 6-3 (Tough match)
Cornet def. Safina 7-5 1-6 6-4(expect a Cornet breakthrough, chackvetadze in slump)
Serena def. Medina Garrigues 6-4 6-4 (sharapova i think will withdraw or she will be surprised my medina who is a real claycourter)

SF:
Jankovic def. Dementieva 6-2 6-3 (sorry elenabut jelena is just a great claycourter)
Serena def. Cornet (6-4 6-3 just too much experience for cornet to handle but a good learning experience)

Okay, reassesment time.

So far i was right with:

-(4/4) tophalf quarterfinalists(semi's still need to be played so dunno how it will end)
-(2/4) Bottomhalf quarterfinalists(overestimating medina and safina)
-(2/2) Bottomhalf semifinalists, cornet making a big big breakthrough :D but she will not be able to handle serena tomorrow.(i think)

-Possibly (2/2) bottomhalf semifinalists.

Not too bad at all:)


Anyway,
-GO CORNET!!! :rocker2: she's a tricky danger on the clay. She's gonna give seeds hell early on at RG.:devil:
-GO ELENA!!! Beat patty, thats all you need to do for me being satisfied with you this tournament.(don't lose easily to jankovic again though:o)

I predict a Zvonareva/Serena final.

Vera is having a good year and I see her making a deep run here.
