So with Sharapova, Ivanovic, Kuznetsova, Radwanska, Chakvetadze, Hantuchova, Bartoli, Szavay, Pennetta, Vaidisova, Petrova, Davenport, Kirilenko and Golovin all out and Henin retired, who will finally emerge from this decimated sh!tfest of a field to win the gold??? Here are the remaining top players:

1. Jelena Jankovic
2. Serena Williams
3. Dinara Safina
4. Elena Dementieva
5. Venus Williams
6. Vera Zvonareva
7. Patty Schynder
8. Victoria Azarenka
9. Alize Cornet
10. Dominika Cibulkova
11. Caroline Wozniaki
12. Shahar Peer
ALSO: Jie Zheng

I myself am rooting for Wozniacki and Cilbulkova at this point :drool::hearts:

'decimated sh!tfest' is a bit of an exaggeration! There are still some quality players in there.

I'd say a Williams will do it - I hope a Williams will do it...but you never know.

Yes, I'm definitely exaggerating, but it's fun to exaggerate sometimes.... especially when all your top favs are out :sad:

But yeah, any of Serena, Venus, Jankovic or Safina would be deserving of the gold.

So far I think Venus is stamping herself as the firm favourite now based on this match. If she manages to close it easily like 6-1 6-3 then I really cannot see her losing to anyone. I am hoping Lena can beat Rena in the QF though!

:rolleyes: There are a plenty of good players still in the draw!
Williams, Williams, Dementieva, Safina, Zvonareva, and Li are my favourites to win the whole thing

Even with all these players in Venus would still win.The only real threat to her was Henin.Kuznetsova looses to every player who has some talent and Ivanovic is only a contender for a second round lately.all the other you mention are frequently

Venus will win if she doesn't have to face Serena. But if its an All Williams Final (which looks very likely, especially considering Serena's extremely light top half of the draw), little sis is winning the gold.

I really only see Safina being Venus' Competition to get to the final. Shes really a great player. To bad all the good players left are in the bottom half :bs: for Venus lol

A better question should be Who will Emerge as the top player, cause lets face it all the players you named were at Wimbledon... and we know what happened there :help:

Anyways... It depends really... With the original draw id have said Serena because Venus was gonna have to play Jankovic... but from what people are sayin JJ cant even move right now so she shouldnt be a problem for Venus. If its and All Williams final it could go Either way...

But Here are the Medal Contenders IMO: Venus, Serena, Safina, Dementieva.... Zie Jheng as the Dark hourse for Bronze brought on by cheering from her home crowd...

Silver- Serena
Bronze-Safina
4th place- Zvonareva:tape:

That's who I think the Final 4 will probably be. Zvonareva has a great chance to reach the Semis now with Ivanovic and Radwanska out.

Agreed. There certainly is the possibility of a surprise medadlist. The victor of the top quarter just has to win that bronze medal match. Wouldn't that shake things up!:devil:

Hopefully the winner of the Lena/Serena QF if they make it that far

safina.
venus or serena.
i wouldn't call these remaining players sh!tty.
you may not like them, but there are at least 5 excellent players still remaining.

It really pains me to say this but a all Williams final may well be on the cards if their fitness doesn't do them in. Let's go for total American domination here and say the sisters will play Liezel and Lindsay for the doubles gold as well. :)

LenaD to take it all! She has the power of russia on her side, something that somehow makes her play A LOT better:bounce: If lena plays as well as she did in moscow the quarter with serena will be a big fight.

And na li needs to keep winning as well! gogogo

I actually like all four of them, believe it or not. But in truth, this IS one of the weakest fields I've ever seen at a major tournament. Hopefully the US Open will be better.

The field wasn't that weak. A lack of Sharapova and Ivanovic isn't enough to destroy a field, especially when we have QUEEN VEE and BABYGURL. :hearts:

I see a Willies final looming.
But those are not really fun for me. I am never quite sure who to root for.
Would really like to see Lena stretch Serena if they make the quarters.

Don't forget that we're missing Henin too. And I think the Williams sisters are definitely past their prime at this point. One of them is probably going to win, but only by default due to the weak competition. I mean, all the Williams sisters really have to do is beat Safina and Jankovic at this point. (Unlike some voters in this poll, I don't see Dementieva as being a serious threat to win.)

Serena for gold and Na Li for silver please.


If Dinara wins gold Im gonna throw myself out a window, because this is clearly not our world anymore but some evil, twisted alternate universe.

I have to say though... that top quarter looks like crap. Ivanovic should be getting fined hardcore for withdrawing sooo late and messing up the whole draw system >_> <_<

However, at least she was nice enough to give the spot to another person though instead of losing in the first round with a walkover >_> <_<
