This is her road, at it's toughest:

Zakopalova
Pin
Garrigues
Hingis
Hantuchova
Petrova

That would get her to the Semi's !

well if you saw her match against golovin at toronto you would know that even zakopalova has a decent chance against her if she plays like that :p

It seems a bit unfair that she has to win 6 matches to reach the semis, and everyone else has to win 5. :confused: :p

Do you really count Zakopalova, Pin, and Garrigues (on hard court) as "matches" ??
More like, going thru the motions !!

It's a cakewalk to the 4th round, and assuming she can beat Hingis (which is a fairly straightforward assumption given recent form, but not a given), then she could have a solid quarters opponent in one of Petrova, Hantuchova, Kirilenko, Krajicek or Srebotnik.

But just looking again, Azarenka & Cibulkova could be dangerous floaties.

I really hope she improves her Toronto form and makes the best of her draw :)

Add Szavay to that list, too. She's really comin' on lately.

I'm thinking that Nadia has a great shot at this SF.

Sveta can be such a headcase though, she may self-destruct against someone like garrigues if she was playing as erratically as in Toronto. However if she's at somewhere near her best level, quarter-finals at least.

I think she's looking at this draw right now and her mouth is watering.
She, unlike Daniela, will not let this draw slip her by and she'll make the most of it.

Vamos.

Sharapova has it even easier.

Yet again the draw is SO top-heavy it is beyond belief.

All the favourites for the title who COULD'VE been in the top half are there. Totally pathetic.

Sharapova is already in the final... Maybe Sveta or Petrova could give her some trouble in SF

Favorites: Venus, Serena, Justine, Jankovic, Ivanovic!! hahahhahhahahh only one of them will make the final!! Bottom half is beyond ridiculous, only Maria there!

She does have the easiest draw of the top 4, but She may not get through it. I think Petrova is showing better form, and if Martina isn't injured, she can sneak to the SF.

Also, look out for Szavay!

Sveta may not be in great form but if she gets on a roll she could win the whole thing. Not likely but I would hardly be surprised if it happens.

Sveta could play with a wooden leg and have a 50/50 chance against Garrigues on a hardcourt. She played poorly against Tati in windy conditions in Canada, but Tati is not AMG (on a hardcourt).

Svetlana has it "easy", but remember she crashed out here at the first hurdle in 2005.

So unfair that players who are not playing well right now can reach SF from the bottom half but the good in form players have to fight in the top half to reach the same stage :(
