With the way she played today, she's a contender.

I suspect she'll get tired though in the final stages though. :o

i think she can win it but i think kim and justine are more likely to. if she wins pilot pen i'd give her an equal chance of winning it as kim and justine.

everybody has a chance but it would be an All-Belgian finals.

Yes, she can win it, but she won't.

I think we'll have a fourth all-"sister" slam final this year. ;)

Anything can happen with Venus and Serena out.

This is what I think.... depends how she plays Lindsay tomorrow at the New Heaven final... If she can put a good fight against Lindsay even if she loses at the end..... She will have the chance at least through to the Semis.... If she wins tomorrow.... Well Well Well... I'll put my bet on her to win the Open!!!

She is capable of it but I doubt she will realize it.

Yes if the draw completely falls away and she is fit enough. She has played mostyl 3 setters this week so I don't know.

Realistically, no. She is not the player she was when she won the Slams.

If the Belgians will put out, then she will have a 90% chance to win the US Open.:)

if the belgians pull out?Jne doesnt need them to actually. She'll do just fine with thm in the draw - so has Venus withdrawn then for sure? I think this could be cappys year and the home crowd WROSHIP her as we all should!

well she has 3 slams in the bag which counts a bit more in the history books

Nope. she will not win because she has lost focus, dedication and physical conditioning.

Maybe next year.
And then again, maybe not. :)

She's definitley got a chance, her game this week has been sick. I like her going into the net more, her forehand has been on and she seems to be in better shape than even the BOW, but I guess training with the Tampa Bay Bucs players will do that.... watch her at the Open, regardless of what happens today, thats all Im saying ;)

Trouble is, the Belgians seem like nice girls who would never put out on an important date ;)

Jen needs to win today.

If she does and she recaptures that winning feeling, I believe she can do it.

Justine is the favourite, but with Jen, you never know what you're gona get.

I really believe that today's match will alter Jen's mentality towards the Open, either positively or negatively.

To me there are two big contenders for the US open - Jen and Kim. They are the most solid grounstrokers and returners and thats what counts on these fast hard courts. I would put Justine a good notch below these two just because I still feel her game is developing and clay remains her best surface.

Yes she can, which is great because now I have a clear choice to put all my hopes in. :yippee:

Well, she did win at the Pilot Pen today, though Lindsay had to pull out. I feel her confidence level is up and she has played some tough matches this week. With the Williams out, I feel she has a very realistic chance of taking it this year. At the very least she will make the quarters.

Yes she can and I hope like hell she does. Go Jen keep that trophy at home. If the sisters and Davenport can get it then Jen should have it. I never root for Chanda because she only put up a fight when she plays the sisters she does not put up a fight against anyone else. Go Jen, Go Jen, you can do it.

If she can keep the level she played the last two days of the Pilot, then for sure she can. She´s got a big edge of Kim and even Justine in that she actually COMES to play at the slams......we all know we can´t always say the same of Kim.

Jennifer WILL win the US Open title. Here's why.

Kim: As much as I love Kim, she's prone to going haywire in the semifinals and final of Grandslams. I hate to say it, but I think Kim lacks the burning drive and win at all costs mentality some of the other top players have.

Justine: She hates playing in New York. She's even said it herself. Furthermore, her worst GS results have come here. You've got to love the NY crowd and mentality to do well here. I've got a feeling she will be tired after playing so much tennis lately as well.

Lindsay: Her toe will not be getting through two weeks of tennis. And if it miraculously manages too, her attiude will fail her at some point in the tournament.

Amelie: Currently injured and one of the bigger headcases on tour to begin with. Also lacking match experience.
