Serena will clean up during this tourney :bounce:

Poova

Two top ten players :scared: Poor Charleston...

Serena should easily win this title if she keeps up her Oz and Miami form anyway.

Brooklyn90
Apr 7th, 2007, 10:25 PM
Hopefully Serena :) :yeah: :bounce:

Vaidisova
Apr 7th, 2007, 10:28 PM

Ana will reach her 3rd Tier-I Final :rocker2: in last 9 months (she always playing better at tier-I tournaments), but i'm not sure about her chances against Serena in that final match...

Apr 8th, 2007, 12:13 AM
LOL @ Peer fans jumping to vote for her (she is in 2nd place) ... she ain't winning this tournament

paranr

yea, but it's clay, so serve's influence is reduced.

Williamsser

Patty has a great record here. This is her favorite tournament. I think that she will win it.

Apr 8th, 2007, 12:22 AM
How can peer be 2nd??she has NO serve!! im glad to see that soo many people have faith in vee lol

12 are not a lot...
first she already take 2(little) tournaments on clay and beated dementieva and myskina... if im not wrong the 2003 finalists of RG... but IMO her biggesst achievment on clay was the federation week in bulgaria.. she didn't lost a match there... singles and doubles while she is ranking about 40

switz
Apr 8th, 2007, 12:28 AM
This is a good draw for Patty. I hope Tati wins Amelia Island because then i won't mind her losing and she will be tired. Let's remember Patty is not Patty in Charleston. 2 finals and even more semis - wins over Henin, Serena, Mauresmo, Capriati, Vaidisova etc.

Serena wins here third straight title of the year and second tier I

In The Zone
Apr 8th, 2007, 01:11 AM
Serena.
Only four players can trouble her, here:
Venus, Peer, Vaidisova, Jankovic.
She can handle all four -- only Peer is a threat because this is now clay. We'll see.
I expect title # 3 for Serena. :]

True true but it still helps... lol i just hate professionals with worst serves than hingis lol and she falls in that catregory

Orion
Apr 8th, 2007, 02:19 AM
I'm pulling for Peer-Serena in the bottom half, and Zvonereva-Safina in the top half. It'd be nice to see Zvonereva get back firmly into the top 20, I always liked her game when she was top 15.

jay745
Apr 8th, 2007, 02:26 AM
clay is peer's best surfece she has a good chance of wining it but the is allways sarina williams to stop her

pierce0415
Apr 8th, 2007, 03:34 AM
well she has more chances than li :p :sad:

um that is just because she has more patriotic fans that voted in this poll ...

Since Nadia is not back to defend, Patty better conjure up her magic she saves for 2-3 tournaments every year :mad:

martinafan
Apr 8th, 2007, 05:44 AM
Ideally, i would have loved Hingis to have been in the draw and get the points, but i HOPE it's either Schnyder or Molik (wishful thinking, huh?)...

Realistically though, probably Serena.

LindsayRulz

As weird as it may sound, Venus is gonna win this tourney or atleast get to the semi or final.

azmad_88
Apr 8th, 2007, 06:07 AM
Serena Williams or Nicole Vaidisova

Serena for sure.

Venus facing Serena in round 3 :fiery: :mad: :sad:

This tournament has become a marvelous opportunity for "Other" to walk away with a Tier I championship. Lets go "Other" :rocker:

New
Apr 8th, 2007, 07:00 AM
Tamarine!!!:hearts:

Shvedbarilescu
Apr 8th, 2007, 07:12 AM
Tamarine!!!:hearts:

:lol: That would be something. Maybe if another 30 or so players pull out she could be regarded as a semi-dangerous floater. Errr....maybe not.

Seriously Tamerine is cool and it is brilliant how hard she has worked to get her ranking back up. She should have another very good grass season and could win quite a few matches in the US Open series too. But clay? :tape:

That said, I would love to see her do well in a clay event. That would be way cool in it's improbability.

Adal
Apr 8th, 2007, 07:23 AM
Wow.. Vaidisova 1st seed.

paranr
Apr 8th, 2007, 09:18 AM
True true but it still helps... lol i just hate professionals with worst serves than hingis lol and she falls in that catregory

So I guess you hate Shahar than...


by the way, I am not 100% sure that Hingis has a better serve than Peer:D

paranr
Apr 8th, 2007, 09:21 AM
um that is just because she has more patriotic fans that voted in this poll ...


In small countries people tend to be more patriotic, it's understandble.

Just wach how the Serbians are super patriotic.

Serena.
Unless she beats herself.

Mr.Kardashian
Apr 8th, 2007, 09:30 AM
i cant see serena NOT winning it... however it is on clay... vaidisova or peer have nice chances... but venus could win it if she beats serena... sydney had most of the top ten players in its draw and this tier 1 event has how many? 2? the ranking points will be valuable for the player who wins

Should be a really easy win for Serena if she continues her great form.

Serena is back and there isnt a lot the other players can do about it even on this surface. She is head and shoulders above everyone in this field unless Venus can really raise her game.

AnnaK_4ever
Apr 8th, 2007, 01:40 PM
Go Jelena !

:eek: @ your avatar.
I dunno if I should cry or laugh at it... I mean avatar, not Del Ponte herself... :lol:

why do you think Venus is the only one can challenge Serena?
she won Memphis Tier III for god's sake. she has a lot to improve. i don't even think Venus will make top ten this year. gosh just because she beat Shahar Peer and Patty Schnyder doesn't mean she has come back :rolleyes:
