The top eight seeds are set:
1. Henin
2. Kuznetsova
3. Jankovic
4. Ivanovic
5. Sharapova
6. Chakvetadze
7. Serena Williams
8. Venus Williams

Assuming seedings hold (big IF), what would make the most exciting quarterfinals. Remember 1-4 would play 5-8. Here are my picks:

1. Henin vs. Serena (can Serena get back on top of this rivalry and exact revenge on her last three QF slam eliminations?)
2. Kuzzie vs. Sharapova (who is the real Russian # one?)
3. Jankovic vs. Venus (another 3 set battle?)
4. Ivanovic vs. Chakvetadze (who wins the breakout player war?)

What say you?

I really do like all these with the excpetion of Lindsay for Jankovic.

My preference for winners would have been
Serena
Lindsay (tough one here but have to go with a comeback girl)
Sveta
Anna

Can't wait for another Serena vs Justine. :lol:

yeah...acutally as a tennisfan you'd say that both of them should maybe meet in the SF or the final, but if you ask for the most exciting matcht and they would met in the quarters you have to admit that it would be exciting to see if serena actually can turn the tables on justine this time ;)

I would rather swap Anna C and another seed ( Ivanovic probably ) for an on form Mauresmo and Lindsay. Bit of old school experience rather than dissapointing newbies :devil: :D

What will happen:

Serena-Henin
Venus-Jankovic
Chakvetadze-Ivanovic
Sharapova-Kuznetsova

So accurate. And Lindsay will be in the Jankovic 1/8, so just in case Jelena is still hurting, it will still be super deep.

Well I don't want the seeds to hold, in fact I'd like to see Davenport, Mauresmo and even Schnyder (who normally does well in Melbourne) reach the last 8. If the seeds to hold, the most exciting matches for me would be:

[1] Henin v [5] Sharapova - Sharapova has the mental strength to beat Henin, and neither are used to losing in the QF's, so both would be 100% focused on getting to the SF.

[4] Ivanovic v [7] Serena - They have only played each other once before in 2006, so it would be good to see them play, with Ivanovic having improved. Ivanovic's flat hitting game would be a contrast to Serena's heavy hitting game.

[8] Venus v [3] Jankovic - That 3-3 tie needs to be broken! They always have close matches!

[6] Chakvetadze v [2] Kuznetsova - This is the only remaining one, it would be an error-fest, not exciting.



It's really good that we have dangerous floaters in Davenport and Mauresmo, but also Serena/Venus/Maria being seeded in the lower half, when really they have to be the 2nd/3rd/4th favourites.

You really want to see Ivanovic get beat down again? With the way her year ended and 2008 has begun. I def dont see Ana in the QF..... or round of 16 at this rate...
