Rumor has it the Kook-Aid was filtered through the sacred bangs, you know.

I knew Lena's lead wouldn't last. She's even dropped out of maid-of-honor contention and right down to her usual bridesmaid status.

Oh, my poor once-bebanged beauty, will you ever be the bride?

xD only two people with winning records, and the rest with nearly atrocious ones

Crazy to see Venus with a 9-2 record

So just going by records...
Venus should win, with Serena in the final, Jankovic and Dementieva in the semis with Azarenka and Woz as total wildcards

At this time of the year everyone has something anyway !

Vika is injured also , Venus had some knee problems , For Jankovic it's her wrist , Serena her toe and i don't remember what else , Dinara Sveta & Elena are Russians...It's about who's gonna be less physically and/or mentally weak :angel:

Well she blamed toe and knee injury for pulling out of Tokyo. She was fine in Beijing. Just an imaginary injury. Just like Jankovic.

its completely open thing, and no one can tell really. serena and venus havn't played in a few weeks, but if either of them really wanted, they could win it. kuznetsova is unpredictable completely, dementieva too. wozniacki and azarenka are at the bottom of my list. i went with jelena, i had to in any situation. the wild situation requires a wild prediction... who better then JJ then? :)

I believe there's only two realistic draw scenarios at play:

Scenario 1:
Safina/Wozniacki/Dementieva/Jankovic
Serena/Kuznetsova/Azarenka/Venus

Scenario 2:
Safina/Kuznetsova/Azarenka/Venus
Serena/Wozniacki/Dementieva/Jankovic

It depends on the matchups. Both scenarios actually favor having Jankovic/Dementieva, Kuznetsova/Venus advancing.

Serena doesn't have the stamina to play back-to-back days. I don't see her winning this and wouldn't surprise me if she doesn't get past RR. Wozniacki could get past RR in either scenario as both cases involve two players that are tired or mentally damaged and a third that's in a slump. I don't see Azarenka advancing in either case (hope she proves me wrong). Unless Safina actually fixed her serve and upgraded her brain, I'm not expecting much from her.

Oh let the games begin...

:bs: :weirdo: how the hell can't she have the stamina to play back-to-back days but yet plays singles AND doubles at slams for 2 weeks AND at some tour events and lasted through them all :weirdo: say you don't see her winning for other reasons other than her stamina cause that's the most bull people use against her but yet she always lasts

I have no idea how they usually do this, but wouldn't it make the most sense to have #1,#3,#5 and #7 in one group and #2,#4,#6 and #8 in the other? If they did that, the groups would look like this:

Group 1: Safina, Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Venus
Group 2: Serena, Wozniacki, Azarenka, Jankovic

I hope it turns out like what I have above, because I want to see Caro play Serena and Vika :bounce:
