Ana but are those really Jill's guns. She should have WAY more power.

Miss Amor

Dinara vs Ana will be the only saving grace for this tournaments as far as WTA is concerned.

-Best Russian Girl at the Moment without a great Title

VERA ZVONAREVA

http://www.bnpparibasopen.org/4/players/gallery/2009/march15/f_pic-preview-n06-g.jpg

What do you consider a "great" title? Safina has no "great" title, and she is certainly better than Zvonareva :shrug:

Mar 17th, 2009, 12:55 PM
Ana, if not her then Vera.

Think the poster meant Tier I (Mandatory, Premier Five today) or better titles. Dinara won Tier I titles last year at Berlin, Montreal, and Tokyo while Vera has not won a Tier II title or above in her career as of today.

I am sticking with my original pick in Vika even though the road is tougher starting with Shahar today, who has been playing well since AO except that first round loss to Benesova in Monterrey. Also, Ana has a good chance of repeating IW with the draw she has but her toughest match to the final is today against Flavia.

OMG current results - Ana about 50%, all others also about 50% :eek:
Is TennisForum hacked today!?

Indian Wells was 4.5M Premier mandatory two-weekers event, but right now it seems more like some of former tier-II events. BTW Ana Ivanovic last WTA title is from tier-II event, Linz october 2008:

Ivanovic Road to Linz/08 Title:
(R32 Bye)
R16 BAMMER, SYBILLE AUT (#26) 6-4 6-2
Q PENNETTA, FLAVIA ITA (#14) 6-4 6-4
S RADWANSKA, AGNIESZKA POL (#10) 6-2 3-6 7-5
F ZVONAREVA, VERA RUS (#9) 6-2 6-1


Here is projected matches for Ana at IW/09 2nd week:
R16 PENNETTA, FLAVIA ITA (#15)
Q BAMMER, SYBILLE AUT (#29)
S RADWANSKA, AGNIESZKA POL (#10)
F ZVONAREVA, VERA RUS (#6)


:eek: :eek: :eek: :devil:

1. Li na (Li's big breakthrough)
2. Pavlyuchenkova(The cinderella story wins, new star)
3. Dani Hantu(The IW story continues)
4. Caroline Wozniacki(The young dane wins first big title and enters top10)

In that order i want to see it happen. No safina, No zvonareva, No ana please. I want a surprise winner now.

Voted with my heart for Agnieszka ;)...
If not it will be Vera or Ana

Ivanovic or Llagostera Vives.

At the start of the tournament I thought Vera Zvonereva would win. Since then loads of the favourites have been knocked out and quickly Vera is playing the best tennis of anyone in the tournament. So I hardly think there is any reason for me to chance my mind right now.

Personally I would be delighted to see Aga or Daniela in the final and that could happen but Vera would be a tough opponent in the final for either girl.

i reckon dinara :) a safina-azarenka final yes plz! im thinking ana might choke in the semis and as for daniela? who knows? :shrug: i do hope danka somehow makes it to the final and becomes the first ever player to win IE 3 times. but unfortunately i dont think this will be her year at this particular tourney.

Anyone could take it.

Haven't seen Vika/Bepa on tv so don't know how well they are playing.

I vote for Daniela but the top half SF winner will take the title home. I bet on Zvo.
