Kim Clijsters BEL (1)
Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS (27)

(no problem for both to reach 3rd Round, Kuznetsova is tough, but she's been losing easily to Kim this summer, i predict Kim in straight sets)

Meghann Shaughnessy USA (17) or Karolina Sprem
Vera Zvonareva RUS (13) or Ashley Harkleroad USA

(I would love to see the outcome of this bracket.... Vera, Meghann and Ashley are not in their top performance as they just got back from injuries, but all of these 4 have equal chance, but just because of the seeding and past results, i would say Vera will go thru)

Daniela Hantuchova SVK (9) or Marion Bartoli FRA
Patty Schnyder SUI (18) or Tanasugarn or Grande

(Daniela is in a major slump, if she is not carefull enough she will lose to Bartoli, same as Schnyder, if she's not on her top performance, both Tammy and Rita are capable to beat her.. I really wanted Daniela to play well again, so i will say Daniela..)

Lina Krasnoroutskaya RUS (26)
Amelie Mauresmo FRA (5)

(Too bad Angie has to play Amelie in the first round, she a good player, as much as i like her, i don;t think she can beat Amelie yet if Amelie is playing well. Cohen-Aloro is another promising talent, but not yet a major threat, would love to see the Lina vs Amelie match up, and i predict Amelie in tough 2 setters.



Lindsay Davenport USA (3)
Lisa Raymond USA (28)

(Way too easy for Lindsay, Lisa could do a little damage, but i don't think she could beat Lindsay)



Nadia Petrova RUS (19)
Amanda Coetzer RSA (14)

(Schett, Chladkova and Husarova can do some damage to this bracket, but if these 2 are playing well none of them could not beat this 2. I will say Nadia will beat Coetzer in 3)



Conchita Martinez ESP (12)
Paola Suarez ARG (24)

(I hope the red hot Paola can upset Martinez and spice up the draw in the 2nd week. Molik can beat Conchita if she could hold all her serves.



Eleni Daniilidou GRE (25) or Casanova or Zuluaga
Chanda Rubin USA (8) or Likhovtseva or Majoli

(This is another tough bracket, Chanda is still injured, Danilidou was exhausted... Chanda is the favourite, but i can see Likhovtseva go thru this bracket. although i really wanted Eleni to win)


Jennifer Capriati USA (6)
Maria Sharapova RUS or Ruano Pascual

(Who ever wins between Maria and Vivi will face Jen, i don't see Alex Stevenson as a threat as she is still injured, and never perform well in the GS except Wim 99 (4 years ago) If Maria can beat Vivi, she has a better chance to upset Jen... I say Maria will make it to 2nd week)

Nathalie Dechy FRA (23) or Amy Frazier USA
Elena Dementieva RUS (11)

(A very kind bracket for E.D, she hits the ball flat and hard, always a trouble, Nat D and Pale Amy are good, Amy can upset everybody when her game is on, but ED will go thru for sure)


Ai Sugiyama JPN (15)
Silvia Farina Elia ITA (20)

(No Problem for Ai chan, except Silvia can produce her A game, which never happened this summer)



Francesca Schiavone ITA (29)
Venus Williams USA (4)

(Venus is the fave absolutely, but will she shows up? if not Francesca will go thru..)

Anastasia Myskina RUS (7)
Magui Serna ESP (30)

(Myskina in 3... if she lost to Magui, which could happen, It is a proof that she doesn't belong in the top 10)



Jelena Dokic YUG (22) or Pierce or K.Srebotnik
Magdalena Maleeva BUL (10)

(If Mary can beat Katarina i think she will beat Dokic.. Mary vs Maggie is just a matter who wanted it the most. Maggie could make it to the top 10 if she does well in this tournament. I say Maggie in 3)



Elena Bovina RUS (16) or Safina
Anna Pistolesi ISR (21)

(Anna P is playing very well this summer, she just beat Anastasia M and VEra Z in New Haven, i say she will win either facing Bovina or Safina)



Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian SUI (32)
Justine Henin-Hardenne BEL (2)

(Justine easily... no comments)
