I can imagine the rest of the field sees a golden opportunity. I would also be so happy if Sveta won her second slam, but surely at the point dinara and jelena would be the firm favourites.

I can't believe that Sveta will win it. Maybe she won't even survive today.
Also a big chance that we get a NEW number 1. For Jelena, Ana and Sveta a final is enough to overtake Maria.

In one sense it's sad to see the BIG names bow out earlier even if i didn't want them to actually win. Still it'll be nice to see a new winner (or Sveta). Actually i'd love it if Jelena or Sveta one, wouldn't mind Elena and i guess Ana or maybe Dinara wouldn't be so bad either.

If Sveta loses today... imagine a QF without a Slam winner :tape:

As long as Ana, Sveta, or Dinara wins this title, all is well :)

Anyone but Jelena and I will be happy. I like Jelena but I think winning a slam will give her a false sense of security that she does not have to work on that shitty serve plus learn to hit some damn winners instead of sitting back and waiting for errors.

I have to say I am surprised to see Sveta as the last grand slam winner left in the draw (assuming she makes the quarters she'll have went the furthest). I would have expected Serena and Maria to at least make it as far as her. Then again, given her record at the French it isn't a huge surprise I suppose.

It is 2004 all over again. What is it with Olympic years? :)

Sveta - she seems over the past 2 years to have forgotten she was a slam winner - she's always the also-ran these days. I'd like her to get it this year but her losing record in finals is a major barrier.

Oh please, RG-2004 had 3 Slam winners in QFs (Serena, Venus, Capriati) including 2 former RG champions :lol:

Seems like it. Hope Dementieva senses this and miraculously wins it all. :unsure:

Time for Elena to win her first slam. That would be sweet.

With all this 2004 talk it looks like the gods of fate are leaningf towards Dementieva having a major beatdown in the final - and of the players left, its Jankovic who knows how to do just that! :-P

It is 2004 all over again.

Myskina was first from Russia to win a slam. RG 2004
Now RG 2008. A first Serbian to win a slam?
After that Maria and Sveta won their first slam.

So the next 3 slams will be won by 3 different Serbians.

wow! i dont know who to root for!!! sveta, winning her second slam, finally fulfilling her potential on clay, ana and jelena, winning their first slam and new number 1, elena d and patty, both players i really like who have never lived up to their slam winning potential or dinara, playing awesomely and just beat the world number 1 saving match point, in the form of her life... who to choose?!!

as long as the champion comes from the top half it's fine with me ;)

Lena, Sveta, Dinara or Vika would be great :D

Ana & Jelena are the only top 3 players left :shrug: Just cos Sveta is a GS champ doesn't make her the fave.

Hopefully it's a Lena vs Ana final!
