Hopefully Venus can get some good match practice in before AO this year.

I hope it will be Ana. Trophy at the start of the season is what she needs. And beating Venus, Petkovic and Schiavone in one week is a great start. :)

Venus.

She matches up pretty well against basically every woman there. If she's fit and healthy she's far and away the best female player on that list even in 2012/13.

I would say Venus, even though i think this event is pointless and i would rather she play brisbane or sydney to get a crack at some top 10 players.

Why is Francesca without any vote in polls? No one believes in her anymore or what?

Venus and Isner can both use this honestly. If they go down in flames it should inspire them early in the season to get their acts together. They're going to be almost untouchable in the doubles and one will ALWAYS be the favorite in their singles match but mostly their win depends on Venus. Can't expect Isner to beat too many of the top players at this event.

This is Venus's. She matches up very well against these women, except maybe Petkovic who won't be at her best.

Germany probably would have won this had they gotten Kerber.

Venus hopefully. Finally playing a decent warm up to Australian Open. Hopefully she will come swinging

Venus. Her round robin group is Scheepers, Johansson, and Dellacqua.... :lol::tape:

^I believe it is Medina Garrigues, not Dellacqua. Venus the easiest opponents, but at the same time the ones that could trouble her. BUT I think having Venus will help relax John and make him feel less pressure in his tough singles matches. And Mixed, I mean that is one tough ass team to beat. 2 giants, for their respective genders, at the net and with their big serves.

If Venus is in any sort of decent form, it will be impossible to stop Team USA.

I have the feeling the final will be USA vs Serbia....

Ana def. Venus :oh: I mean if she doesnt beat a Sjogren stricken past her prime Venus then it will be ugly :facepalm:
Novak def. Isner

Venus was pretty much crippled the only time Ana beat her (2008 AO quarterfinal)
She couldn't even beat a Sjogrens Venus in her first tournament back this year.
There's no way Vee will lose to Ana

I know Venus is just too powerful for Ana to handle, pretty bad match-up

You know what i don't even think it's a power issue in this match up.

I definately think Ana is conscious of the h2h and thats effected their recent encounters, but more that Venus still moves well enough round the court to avoid getting punished by Ana's forehand too much, and then is good enough off the ground to punish all the short backhands she'll get and take advantage of how up and down Ana's serving can be.

Venus also seems to always bring her serve to matches with Ana. The last 2 come to mind, their matches at Eastbourne and Miami are 2 of her best serving displays since 2010. Her loss to Ana in Australia the serve disappeared all match!
