Radwanska without losing a set. The other option is Kuznetsova, but her form is still a big question mark at the moment.

Aga of course.

Aga huge favorite here. Shvedova would be my second pick, upward trend there.

Too bad Aga and Sveta are on the same half. I'd have liked an epic final with those two :devil:.

prbably radwanska but if she hits form it could and probably should be kuznetsova

How can you leave Sveta out of this poll? :facepalm:

I went with Jie Zheng because of the conditions and the location, but it looks like she'll have to go through Sveta AND Aga just to make the final...

Maybe she can catch Sveta while rusty.

This MM has good draw.

Aga will win this, unless she decides to tank this.

This draw actually has a surprising number of decent storylines. Mostly whether Kuznetsova is finally ready to stop clowning around and start playing something atleast vaguely resembling tennis. Also intrigued to see if Barthel has got her shit together over the off-season.

Aga is odds on favourite, I feel it'll be a Barthel vs. Radwanska final

but I hope Sveta upsets Aga out of nowhere, or Watson makes the SF at least

Aga vs Slava in the QF (hopefully) :drool: My vote goes to Aga though, I think she'll win this tournament without too many problems.

Interested in how Julia, Barthel, Shvedova, Sveta & Aga will do.

This looks like it could be a lot more interesting that Brisbane.

Hopefully someone among Sveta, Mona and Slava.

Probably because Sveta hasn't played since Wimbledon and is unseeded :shrug:

radwanska to win if she cares enough

There are many players that if they bring their good game could make this tournament very interesting and trouble Aga who has to be the favorite. However, given these players are the likes of Kuznetsova, Goerges, Barthel, Shvedova it's also very possible they'll suck.
Hoping for a good start to the year for Julia. Some of the Linz form please! :cheer:

Of course unlikely, Radwanska is the overwhelming favorite.

Since Istanbul she was playing only in few MMes.

Shvedova has the weapons to beat Radwanska but whether she pulls it all together is another question.

Aga will win this.

Hopefully there will be Aga Radwanska vs Julia Görges final. They had three matches in 2012, 2-1 for Aga.

Exactly. I don't think she cares about those tournaments to be honest.

Agatha to slay all those before her with dropshots and squat forehands.

Why are people hyping Kuznetsova without any idea of how she's playing? She'll probably suck badly.

Bcs this is the season of comeback girls: Kuznetsova, Ivanovic, Venus, Wozniacki... They are all in to go deep in every tournament. :)

Yup. She's been pathetic for the past 2 years, and hasn't played a match since June.

Agatha.

Only players who could take her out on a good day are Shvedova, Goerges and Barthel. Sveta is a question mark right now...

Well considering Julia beat her in their last match, I'd say she could take Aggie out on a good day...

Great draw. Certainly much better than the crap at Shenzhen and Hobart next week. Loads of legit players here like Halep, Voskoboeva, Shvedova, Kuzzy, McHale and obviously Goerges. Radwanska is far from a lock for the title. There's tons of players here who have the variety and power to beat her.

Should be very interesting, and that's great in case Brisbane becomes too boring in the early rounds.

You're forgetting that she'll have Radwanska in her sights, who is the only player Sveta gets up to play these days :haha: Radwanska is the Venus to Kuznetsova's Pironkova.
