Pratt will destroy the Swiss Bitch.

I dunno.

Its the beginning of a new year and no one really knows how the impending marriage of Martina Stepanek will affect her tennis. Engagement can be quite distracting. ;)

I would say Martina, but there are two dangerous floaters who might give M. Stepanek ;) serious challenges.

I presume by destroy you mean "hold serve once or twice".

Why not like them both??

I think Montreal was actually a much tougher draw, despite the Withdrawals and the 'holes' in the draw, Martina still had to beat Mara/Dani/Sveta/AnnaC before reaching the final...not easy :worship:

Seriously, when was the last time Kirilenko had an easy draw?
Pennetta in the 1R and then possibly Safina after that. Pffffffft!

Good Luck to Makiri, Martina and Ana :)

She had easy draws in 5 out of her last 7 tournaments in 2006.

Schruff, Dulko, Dushevina, Morigami and Gagliardi.

She beat Schruff, Dulko and Gagliardi... Doesn't mean she didn't have tough draws?

Nice to see Elena Bovina back in a draw. :bounce:

Will be interesting to see how Groenefeld does without that weird coach she fired after the US Open. :eek:

the bottom quarter looks pretty tasty, there'll be some tough matches there, then ivanovic will mop up the semi-finalist from that quarter and go on to beat hingis in the final

Wow, that bottom quarter is pretty tough! It'll be interesting to see if Kirilenko improves on her poor 2006; hopefully the change of coach will see her play more aggressively. Of course it's difficult to judge Flavia's form, so it's an intriguing first round match. Stosur v Peng is also an interesting encounter, though I'd probably expect Sam to win it, considering how well she plays in Australia.

I'm so pleased tennis is back :D

I think it´s a nice draw for Martina... i hope to see Martina vs Ivanovic in the final, but this time with Martina in good form. She always plays well in january so i think it will be a good tournament... "pratt will destroy the swiss bitch"?looool. I think that is the more ridiculous sentence that i read in at least 10 days... I doubt Pratt will win a set to Bovina... so she won´t even play Martina
