now there are only 16 players left ...

some seeded players we expected to get here who are here (Caro, NaNa, Vika, Kim, Vera)
other seeded players we never expected to get here who are not here (JaJa)
other seeded players we never expected to get here who are here (Aga)
other seeded players we expected to get here but who are not here (Venus, JuJu, Nadia / Ana, Wick / Bartoli, Sam)
other unseeded players who are here (Sevatsova, Marakova, Benesova)

which quarter is the toughest now ???

Definitely not the bottom half. The third quarter particularly is looking easy for Kim. I know Shuai is playing well but she's not yet a big name, although she's getting there certainly. Bottom quarter looks tougher now that we've seen Kvitova's form but still not a brutal one when it has the likes of Benesova.

Top half in general is pretty tough and it depends really. Caro, Franny and Sveta make for a pretty tough quarter but so do Masha, Vika and Na... I'd say the tipping point is that Petkovic is better than Sevastova.

So 2nd, then 1st, then 4th and then 3rd.

Definitely the first or second. I give the edge to the first, but barely.

Definitely second one - all players are very tough to beat here and Maria, Vika and Na are trump any other combination

joćo.

[30] Pekovic, [14] Sharapova, [9] Li, [8] Azarenka.

2 > 1 > 4 > 3

The first and fourth quarters are pretty close though...

Bottom half of the draw is almost a joke. But at least it's not as bad as recent slams.

2nd quarter is by far the toughest. Azarenka/Li is the only match-up where the two players are still going according to their seeding.

The Vera quarter was tougher earlier, but Sam/Petra played already. Same as top quarter, Justine/Sveta played.
I think they are all fairly even. Makarova & Kvitova are good. They're still young & inconsistent, but they are going to be very good.

Somehow Maria always have to end up in the toughest quarter, always. :o

After Justine lost, I thought Caro's quarter was the easiest...
Now it looks so much better than the mess that is the bottom half.

Maybe but it's better to be in a tough quarter rather than to lose early.;)

That 2nd quarter is crazy tough.

Somehow Maria always have to end up in the toughest quarter, always. :oPetkovic has never won a 3rd round match at a major. She got a w/o to get this far. Li/Vika winner is not better than Kim, or Petra/Veraor Caro/Sveta.
Maria had a very good draw, especially Tammy, who was awful in round1.
Now Maria has to do something with this draw.

Sharapova, Li and Azarenka are three contanders for reaching the AO Final...
So definetly, I've choosen the 2nd QUARTER :)

Andrea Petkovic is as good as byebye at this point. Even if she manages to defeat the Siberian Siren (which is unlikely), there's no way she'll get past either Li or Azarenka.

Easily the 2nd quarter. Whoever gets through that quarter has a huge shot at the title unless Kim starts to play much better.

And I don't count Andrea out of that. She could beat Maria and the winner of Azarenka/Li could choke. I wouldn't be surprised.

an in-form Razzano and Goerges are easy draw to you? Julia would have beaten anyone that day when she was playing Maria:wavey:
