Although I don't like it when too many players from the same country remain so late in a GS, it's still amazing that 9 out of the 16 spots could be taken by the same country. Is it a record ever? I think so...

Close to zero. I don't give Panova much of a chance against Molik, but you never know.

Svetlana has won 10 straight matches at the majors.
But she will probably have to beat the last 2 Wimbledon champions to make the final.
Very difficult.

It would be amazing, but still, if you look at the size of Belgium and the size of Russia ...;)

well...
i'd love an all russian semi's... :eek:
but that's too much to ask.
if i could choose the winner - it would be petrova! :worship:
i really REALLY want her to take her f**king first title... :mad:
and i don't mind if it's a grand one, i'm very liberal... :angel:

plus, i think that rebound ace should do her good.
