Venus or Serena but I'm really hoping Venus wins :-)

If Serena is healthy as an ox, She'll defintely defend.
But more so, I wouldn't be surprised if Venus wins.

i would prefer a surprise win. and by that i pretty much mean i don't want the williams sisters or clijsters to win.

if someone in the top 10 wins i would like it to be either capriati to say she is back and finally win a title other than a grand slam, hantuchova to prove she isn't a fluke (which i think is very important to the game) or dokic.

but i really would prefer an up and comer to win. but then again this thread is aslking who do you think will win and it's not who you want to win.

so, i hae to say serena or venus and the way their matches have been going serena will win.

I will go out on a limb and say a Williams sister ;)

But ofcourse I really hope it is Kim :D

I love to see Lindsay or Capriati played at their best level and win the tournament by Lindsay ofcourse. Williams really have a say on this, but I think its really possible if everybody is on their best form

Serena all the way... or Venus. Depends which one of the sisters is playing better. :o

Serena of course :sad:

Mar 16th, 2003, 10:44 AM
Jelena – yeah. Crazy dream...
I'll be more than happy if she will beat someone ranked above her or Rubin...

However if it will be another typical - you know ;) - final then Venus win will make my day!

Obviously we can't write Kim off to.

I think Serena will win...not that I think Kim has no chance, though. I would not be surprised if someone like Capriati or Davenport won the whole thing.

Probably Venus or Serena....

But Kim isn't without a chance. Anything can happen...

Good Luck Kimmie :)

Chances:
1. Serena (pretty much a gurantee)

GAP

2. Venus/Jennifer (Venus is the better player, but Jenny loves Miami)
4. Kim/Lindsay (both playing better than Jen, but their Miami records are not exactly stellar)

GAP
GAP
GAP

6. Monica (slow, not in best form, but she plays well in Miami, and the surface is awesome for her game)
7. Justine (in good form at the moment, but hardcourts doesn't really suit her game IMO)
8. Daniela/Chanda (is she a fluke??????? Her best chance is on a hardcourt or grass IMO, but will she win again? I'm not sure)(Not in the best form recently, but always some threat on a hardcourt)

GAP

10. Everyone else (For me, I couldn't even comprehend someone else getting through four or five top tenners, which is what you have to do to win this event:o . It is gonna be Serena, bar some miracle, and otherwise it will be one of the other top tenners)

Kournikova!!

No seriously....

I think serena and venus are favourites, but we have seen this week that Kim, Lindsay and Jennifer would be capable of taking one of them out and possibly winning the title.

I hope jennifer or kim :bounce: :bounce:

DiZZiA

Anna Kournikova.... ;)

If she turns up in the Open, she will win the fans, the media attention.... sorry, except the title though!! :p

butch
Mar 16th, 2003, 01:52 PM
Amanda (I am entitled to my dreams.... :angel: )

Probably Serena, eventhough I hope Venus or Kim will at least make it competitive and will not just be blown away.

maccardel
Mar 16th, 2003, 01:55 PM
Yeah who do you think will win the nasdaq-100 open in Miami? :wavey:


A tennis player?
A human being?

Seriously, I think this one is Serena's she wants to make up for her Scottsdale absence. I see the ambition and vengeance in her winning, watchout Venus!!!!!

Mboyle -

Lindsay's record isn't that great? What is your definition of great?

1996 - SF (lost to [1]Graf)
1997 - 4R (lost to [10]MJ Fernandez)
1998 - QF
1999 - QF (defaulted in her QF match)
2000 - F (lost to [1]Hingis)
2001 - QF (lost to [7]Dementieva)

while it may not be amazing, it's not a bad record.

Kim Clijsters :kiss:

I'm going with Venus. I have a feeling that this is her year. She's too good to be denied for long. I really want Serena to go undefeated, but I want more for Venus to break her drought against Serena. I think she can do it.

It will be interesting to see who wins this tournament.

Havok
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:02 PM
it's between Venus/Jen/Amelie( if she doesn't somehow retire during the tournament)

Mar 16th, 2003, 04:03 PM
Mboyle, how dare you gap Venus?

She will win. :bounce:

AjdeNate!
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:14 PM
Aside for a Williams, the obvious choices.... I think a Belgian or two could find her way into the final. I also think that Monica has a shot at it. And Jennifer and Lindsay are always dangerous. I'm going completely out on a limb...but I'll pick:

Justine Henin-Hardenne.

Venus Forever
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:15 PM
VENUS

This was her tournament, and it will become her tournament AGAIN with a victory this year.

MIAMI TITLE #4 ON ITS WAY!!:bounce:

Dava
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:18 PM
Its gonna be Serena or Kim, but I am not going to write of Venus, she still there.

Also I hope that Anna and Jelena get some good results in here cos believe me they need them!!!!!

Serena better win it!

if not, Alex ;)

no seriously-Serena, Jennifer, Venus, Linzi. thats the order i want the big players to win. i just dont want Kim "over-hyped" Clijsters to win

selesfan
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:26 PM
Serena or Venus.

Mercury Rising
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:40 PM
Williams.

Leena
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:42 PM
Elena Bovina... upsetting one of the Williams' in the 4th round... then the other in the final.

IT COULD HAPPEN.

Myskina Lina
Mar 16th, 2003, 04:46 PM
Yes it could

i hope elena is in another quarter, because i want her to get far, but if she meets with a sister in the 16's then IMO she'll lose...

Leena
Mar 16th, 2003, 05:14 PM
There's a good chance Lena will face a Williams' considering she'll be seeded 15th or 16th.

Lena already beat Venus.

Serena is next.

Ph44r the monster.

LeonHart

Vera will pull some upsets and win the tournament :D

if vee and elena meet, then you better hope that lena will be dressed up like serena, because venus hates to lose to a player twice in a row...

Justine will :bounce: ... or Serena ;)

Asmus
Mar 16th, 2003, 06:45 PM
VENUS!

Remember that it was exactly a year ago at this tournament when Serena turned the tables on Venus. Now the reverse can happen.

I really think that the answer for Venus to beat Serena is to play her in smaller tournaments like this one, non-slams.

If not a Williams sister, then:

1. Capriati
2. Davenport
3. Clijsters
4. Mauresmo

Now that the draw is out who do you think will win.

Venus

This tournament will be a good preview of things to happen during the coming spring/summer tournies, no matter who wins.


My "underdog" pick is Rubin or Henin

Cariaoke
Mar 18th, 2003, 03:21 PM
Serena or Venus. :p

I'm torn because I want Serena to defend but I want Venus to win a big tournament. ARGH!

Leena
Mar 18th, 2003, 03:25 PM

Luckily, Lena won't face Vee until the final.

Serena will hate to face defeat this year... but it shall happen. Oh yes, it will. :p

Becool
Mar 18th, 2003, 06:58 PM
Serena will defend it easily :)

No Bovina ( :p @ Leena)

Or Venus ( :p )

Will take her out :bounce:

Mar 18th, 2003, 07:42 PM
Serena, Venus, Clijsters, Cappy, in that order--that's my guess. :)

Serena is next.

Ph44r the monster.
as we have seen this week? from lindsay we saw nothing but errors, from kim we saw nothing but defense (like she always does against venus/serena and looses, same goes for cappy, now if they would've showed us a whole new game plan and better play, they would be contenders, but w/ the way they were playing. 2 Quarters and a semi will be their best result.

and to mention about Leena already beating Venus, they played in 2001 an "official" WTA Match. yes Bovina has improved, but clearly she hasn't improved to the extent to even dare challenge venus or serena. That was an exhibition, but I do understand, you will continue to give her "high hyped praise" until she is beaten easily by venus/serena.

don't worry elena (dementieva that is) will beat serena in the 4th rd and then win the title against V or kim in the final!!!!!
