Anastasia Myskina

Myskina earns POTW for her SF appearance in New Haven and she now has 2 aces to use this week :yeah:

Odds On

http://legacy.tennis.com/players/images/wta/msharapova.jpg http://legacy.tennis.com/players/images/wta/dhantuchova.jpg http://www.wtatennis.com/namedImage/12781/player_310338.jpg

This is one of the most wide open Slams in quite some time. There are no real favourites, but two-time former champ and hard-court queen Sharapova must rank as a hot tip. She may have stalled in the last two events and seen her ranking slip to 7th, but she's the most accomplished on this surface, and seems to have good fortune at this event, so she has to be the best bet. Daniela has risen in form and confidence and will be using her win in Montreal as a springboard to do well here, if she can negotiate an extremely tough opening match, then she will like her chances. Finally we have Marta, who has cruised past most of her opponents and has arguably the most destructive game, if the draws falls her way, it could be a pretty easy victory.

Solid Bets

http://legacy.tennis.com/players/images/wta/cwozniacki.jpg http://legacy.tennis.com/players/images/wta/arezai.jpg http://legacy.tennis.com/players/images/wta/yshvedova.jpg

There really isn't much between the favourites and the contenders. Wozniacki proved in New Haven that with few aces, you can win win on a highly competitive surface. The US Open appears to be her final event, so she'll want to go out with a bang. Australian Open champ Rezai would love to become the first player in ATC history to win two Slams in one season, and her form suggests she's in with a shout. Lastly, we have Yari. She's picked up a handful of wins all season, but came alive during New Haven, and suddenly looks like a strong prospect for a good run in New York.

Outside Chance
