Some of these 1st round could be the final of an International event.

Sydney's field used to be stronger than that.

Expected QF :
(1)Serena vs (8)Wozniacki
(3)Dementieva vs (6)Radwanska
(5)Sveta vs (4)Vera
(7)Petrova vs (2)Safina

Serena and Dinara have very tough draws IMO. Sam is difficult to play against especially in Australia. Sori :hearts: should make things interesting against Dinara.

Domi-Caro -> interesting match, I think Domi will win this time
Jarmila-Vika -> rematch of Brisbane R16 match

Agreed. For a tournament that has no restrictions on the amount of top 10 players allowed, it is a rather boring field.

Tough match right from the start. It should be a good indicator of how much she was able to prepare after her recovery. I hope she can do well.

Half of the top ten is present.
Radwanska is playing Hobart because she's afraid of the big girls.

i agree its not that strong a draw for sydney, has been much stronger in the last few years. a few intresting matches but really there only looks to be 3 or 4 player that have a shot at winning.

Serena better be chaffing from those boots if Sam is going to win. C'mon Sammy. Casey has a tough first round, Errani was playing well last week. Jarka can get revenge and Emelyn might not get hit off the court:)

Dani and Sugi will probably still lose their matches :( Peng will upset Kuzzi and Domi and Caro will be a fun match!

I know, but could you imagine how much better it would be if it was Jelena, Serena, Ana, Venus and Maria instead?

Serena v Stosur first round. I'm so excited because I have centre court tickets on Monday and I think it will be on them. Woohoo. I get to see Serena live.

I agree though, the draw isn't quite what it used to be. In other years the cut off for the main draw has been like 25. But I expect thats because the organisers put alot of effort into chasing Serena this year.

Serena should have an easy road to the QF. As long as she comes healthy and prepared, I see the semis as a minimum here.

I have a feeling Dementieva will take out serena again :lick:

tough draw for Serena, two Aussies. She'll have a tough time against the crowd. Good Luck Serena!! Get as much match prep as you can!

Top quarter looking very strong - bartoli, serena, stosur, dellacqua, cibulkova and wozniacki - wow.... middle two sections quite weak - dementieva and zvonerava should make it through to semis - if they dont w/o before this stage

I can't get over the no byes thing. It's wrong. :(

Domi you better beat Wozniacki because I could not stand another Marion-Caro match. :o Hopefully Marion can continue her Brisbane form and cause some damage here.

That bottom half :tape: This year's draw is one of the weaker Sydney draws for a while but still close enough for there to be upsets. I'd like to see Petrova come through that bottom half.

The first quarter was promising then, BLAH.

I thought the same thing...I was like, this is supposed to be a Premier event and there's barely any top-ten players playing in it. I think Serena has a good draw; this will give her some good preparation for Melbourne. Good luck baby girl! :yeah:

what? azarenka could play dementieva in round 2 and vika is much better than anyone u listed except serena. so i dont see serena having a tougher draw :o

Straight after winning Aukland, shes gunna play another tourney and then AO ? :confused:

But otherwise, Serena had better be ready to play. If she's on, she'll win.

8 players from top10 :eek: I remember JJ was #11 at that time and it wasn't good enough to be a seed, so she played Hingis in 1r :o

the draw looks a bit boring....

Sydney's field used to be stronger than that.

Exactly

Super_Marion
Jan 10th, 2009, 10:31 PM
Marion's quarter is the toughest I'd say. You have four top twenty players, and two Aussies with a home crowd behind them.
