Wozniacki has a tough road. Georges or Safina, Stosur, Vika in her half.
Sveta plays Domi. Winner of Wickmayer/Sharapova

Good tournament

This, not only injured but out of form as well.
It could be like you said there with Wozniacki prevailing because of her consistency or another player on a hot streak will win.

Fun tournament. Ana has a realtivley easy draw but she will prove me wrong. Hoping Bojana can crush Arn and then win a set against Woz. GL Petko, Maria, Vika and Julia. Poor Rezai is going to lose so much points.

Every of last 5 WTA big red clay events (Schiavone - Roland Garros 2010, Rezai - Madrid 2010, MJMS - Rome 2010, Dulgheru - Warsaw 2010, Goerges - Stuttgart 2011) won player which is not even poll option of WWW polls on TF right before all this tournaments... so I guess this "OTHERS" winning trend will continue in Madrid 2011 also.

Out of all "other" players not mentioned on this poll as eventual Madrid champions best chances have clay-GOATs Ana Ivanovic and Svetlana Kuznetsova. Some dark horses also deserve to be mentioned such as Kvitova, German duo (Petkovic-Goerges), A.Radwanska and Wickmayer... or maybe champion will be some total underdog like Rezai and MJMS shocked everyone in Madrid and Rome last season.

I don't know why everybody's saying Maria got a tough draw. Her first round is not really difficult. Then in the 2nd Round, she's going to face Wickmayer obviously, who plays exactly the game Maria is able to fairly handle in a good day. In the 3RD Round, she'll face either Cibulkova or Kuznetsova. Both of them are out of form, so there's a shot for an "On Maria". In quarter, Zvonareva will be hard to handle for sure but Maria got this mental edge on her... After that, well, que sera, sera :)

well, wickmayer played well against Caro in Charleston...Cibulkova is not that out of form...Zvonareva is playing well. But yes, it depends on how Maria is playing...if she keeps form form IW-Miami then she will be able to make a deep run.
