Michaella Krajicek
http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/photos/150x200/311578.jpg

Coach - BWLH
Nationality - NED
Rank - #1
Favourite Surface - Grass

W - Birmingham, 's-Hertogenbosch, New Haven, Quebec City
RU - Wimbledon
SF - Montreal, US Open

After rebound ace and clay it looked like our prayers had been answered and Misa was going to tumble down to the rankings, but no, during the grass season she took performance-enhancing drugs found her game and unbelievably became #1 :o She's got 4 titles, but they're all mickey mouse events, so it's unlikely she'll win this week :lol:

Tamarine Tanasugarn

Coach - KevRulz09
Nationality - THA
Rank - #2
Favourite Surface - Grass

W - Australian Open, Montreal
RU - Auckland, New Haven
SF - N/A

For the second season in a row, Tammy won a Slam :yeah: Her game picked up a lot during the hardcourt season and she safely made it to Madrid, she won the Australian Open with 2 aces so don't count her out this week.

Amelie Mauresmo
http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/photos/150x200/130450.jpg

Coach - Not_Even_Amateur
Nationality - FRA
Rank - #3
Favourite Surface - Grass

W - Auckland, Wimbledon
RU - Birmingham
SF - Cincinnati

Momo's highlight of the season was definitely Wimbledon where she recovered from last season's nightmare to win her first GS, several other strong results ensured her safe passage through to the championships.

Alicia Molik
http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/photos/150x200/130548.jpg

Coach - ...[Harvs]...
Nationality - AUS
Rank - #4
Favourite Surface - Grass

W - Antwerp
RU - Australian Open, 's-Hertogenbosch
SF - Auckland, Birmingham, Eastbourne

Alicia has been an extremely consistent performer this season, always making the QFs and the SFs, and having won the title in Antwerp with 0 aces, she could be a threat here this week.

Jelena Jankovic

Coach - dAdEx
Nationality - SRB
Rank - #5
Favourite Surface - Hard

W - Cincinnati
RU - US Open, Quebec City
SF - Amelia Island, New Haven, Moscow

JJ had just one SF going into the hardcourt season, but there she found her game and the consistent results started coming, she's going into Madrid with a lot of confidence and is looking like the potential favourite.

Kim Clijsters
http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/3/global/photos/150x200/30458.jpg

Coach - Hashim.
Nationality - BEL
Rank - #6
Favourite Surface - Clay

W - Rome
RU - Strasbourg, Roland Garros
SF - 's-Hertogenbosch

Despite not winning RG, Kim was the star of the clay season, winning Rome and reaching two other finals, she's not done much since, but maybe she can spring a Belgian surprise this week ;)

Coach - dementievavenus
Nationality - USA
Rank - #7
Favourite Surface - Hard

W - Strasbourg
RU - Sydney
SF - Gold Coast, Wimbledon

Jen's results have been solid but not spectacular, still it's been enough to see her grab a place at the championships, she's lacking in aces, but so are several other players, so she could make a run this week.

MSL makes it in on the back of one good tournament and Jidkova going AWOL, but we won't blame her luck :o She's arguably the most talented player ever to grace ATC, so let's watch in wonder as she double bagels the rest of the field :hearts:

I forgot to say that semi-finalists have the option of changing their points, so I'll give some more time if they wish to do this :)

Vamos.

The most talented player IS in the Semis.

A.Mauresmo.

Although she probably won't get any further. I've always struggled with Kimmy. :armed:

It never takes me more than 1-2 minutes to send points, Ben, you fool. Of course it didn't take 1.5 hours. It was 1.5 minutes. Then I came back and posted that message. :rolls:

Alicia probably will win. :shrug:

Nope. Massive difference saying "Alicia probably will win". That is just me stating my own personal opinion.

You don't hear me saying I have "no chance" and I've definitely lost. And I'm retiring. And being ultra melodramatic. And then, hey, what do you know...you've gone and won again.

huge difference.

I know I have a chance to win. Its almost 50/50 but based on the grasscourt season I slightly favour Alicia. That is all.

These are also based on own opinions.:angel: and it's not ALWAYS happening.:p :nerner:

Anyway, both of you have 4 Aces on grass and now you have 2 extra aces than her. No worries. You'll win in 3 sets.;)

Vamos.
Jul 12th, 2008, 06:06 PM
:lol:...it happens when you really want to do well. But, whatever. I don't do it. And thats the end.

I have 1 extra Ace. It is as tight as could be, it will be a good match. I'm happy with my tournament anyway...it secures my top 3 finish, I believe. :bounce:
