Darkhorses with a real chance to win? Very few.
Darkhorses to make the QF's - I'd say Vera Z, Golovin, Vesnina

Molik for sure...
Dec 27th, 2006, 04:23 PM
Sammy Stosur or Shuai Peng.

I have a feeling Flavia might have a good event here :)

Darkhorses that will be unseeded likely that could cause a few upsets:
Kutuzova (if she qualifies)
Razzano (can always be dangerous too in early rounds as she has proven)

Vania King.... She is next US numb. 1, and with the big chance to become world num. 1 player in the world.....

Eleni Daniilidou :)
she finished 2006 very well and she's had some good wins downunder

Stosur will be seeded, but still no one will want her in their section. She'll be seeded into the third round, but with a favorable draw a 4R or QF is certainly not out of the question.

I hope maybe a polish girl
but I doubt we will have a surprising winner!!!

Aiko Nakamura, as a qualifier two years ago she made the second round and put up a spirited challenge against Molik. Last year she beat Cornet in 3 sets, destroyed seeded Dulko 61 61 before bowing out to Patty Schnyder.
Akiko Morigami also, her coach mentioned recently she has been in great form.
