Daniela stands a good chance at her third IW title!
Or, will a brand new WTA star emerge next week?
If yes, who?

Since Hantuchova has had some of her best results at Indian Wells, I would not mind seeing her win the title.

Jankovic's quarter looked soft, and now she is out, and Cornet and Cibulkova.
That quarter is wide open.
Safina and Vika are still in their quarter.
Vera, Amelie, Caro still in their quarter.
Dani vs Ana probably inElena's quarter.

Safina wont make it past Azrenka, or Zvonareva if she meets them.

Maybe it's Veras' time to win something big?

Not if she meets Vera :angel:

I think Ivanovic will win IW.

Yeah I think Vera has a great chance at IW.

Vera has to get past Amelie
Ana will probably play Dani
Dinara has to beat Peng Nicole and Vika
Aga is probably the favorite in Jankovic's quarter, but Alisa seems like she has a big chance

joćo.
Mar 15th, 2009, 03:59 PM
I hope Nicole, Dani, Flavia or LenaV win it.

I'm hoping the young players like Caro, Ula, Aga, Vika and now Pavlyuchenkova will all make it far.. But Ula winning of course :) Even with her sprained ankle! :ras:

As much as I like Elena D and JJ, its going to be really interesting to see what happens now that they're out.

I'd like for Daniela to go deep in this tournament. Winning atm, seems highly unlikely though. She'd really need to up her level considerably. She does have the best record here of anyone though left in the draw, so she always has a chance. There have been glimpses here and there this year of Daniela hitting some good ball.

Of everyone though, Zvonareva seems the most likely. However, this is not a popular choice for me by any means. Would much rather see Vika win for example.

Love to see Amelie win

I'd love to see at least two unseeded players in the semis. It's great for women's tennis to spread the prize money around, the top-seeds already have too much. It makes future tournaments less predicable --- that is, more interesting. And it gives hope to up-and-comers that the top is permeable. What's not to like?

I'd like to see Daniela and Ana do well.

I really am hoping for an Amelie win too.

I would shudder to see an Amelie win (and not in orgasmistic delight either!)

Safina wont make it past Azrenka, or Zvonareva if she meets them.

I agree with this :yeah:

and I don't think its wishful thinking :lol:

I would also like to see Amelie take this :D

No-one thought Safina would beat Zvonareva in the AO semi final given the former's terrible form and the latter's strong form during the tournament but Safina ended up winning ;)

Daniela stands a good chance at her third IW title!

I can't for the life of me understand why so many people are saying the draw is opening up for Danka.

I mean, who is the top surviving seed in the bottom half?

I think Ivanovic will win IW.

Same.

Bottom half is so open :eek:
Ivanovic is clearly favourite to reach the final now

Jose.
Mar 15th, 2009, 08:44 PM
Llagostera, Kleybanova, Knapp and Pavlyuchenkova one of them will reach the Quarters :tape: :eek:

Hantuchova hasn't beaten a top fifty player this year. And she had to save MPs against Wickmayer. At least in 2007, she was playing decently coming into the tournament. She'll be lucky to get by Bammer.

It would be a really good time for Agnes to play somewhere near her potential.

Vera or Safina will win. but Azarenka will be tough to beat

Mar 16th, 2009, 11:31 AM
I may be wrong, but I think people are hyping Azarenka too much. She's only beaten 2 top 20 players this year-- Bartoli who's wildly inconsistent and Wozniaki who's been slumping. She also just had a big tussle with Shvedova, but must have played better against Vesnina.

Azarenka is 0-3 against Safina, 1-0 against Peer, 0-1 against Li, 0-3 against Vera, 1-1 against Wozniacki, etc.

I hope Ivanovic can defend her title.

I hope for Zvonareva, Azarenka, or Li Na to win the title.

Too bad Vera and Li will play each other in the 4th Rd :fiery:

I agree. She's one of the best young athletes out there.

it could be a great time for Aga to get back on the right tracks again. She got enough rest, and must feel a lot of positive energy coming from her win over Sam...and Ulka's incredible. If she only beats Alex today, this match will be very telling. I hope Aga could go all the way..Go AGA, meet Ulka in the final..'other sisters' final :)
