Jun 14th, 2008, 02:45 PM
Quite a few clay court specialists here...

Jun 14th, 2008, 02:47 PM
Safina/Dementieva/Srebotnik (yeah, let's be optimistic :lol: ) ... dunno :shrug:

Jun 14th, 2008, 02:48 PM
:rolls: @ you to put misa in the list :p

she's playing at home so you never know;) of course i hope this will not happen because probably in R2 she plays against Flavia so:p

Jun 14th, 2008, 02:49 PM
I hope Anna can confirm the title, the draw is good.

Jun 14th, 2008, 02:56 PM
keothavong is playing Hertogenbosch?? :eek:

Jun 14th, 2008, 02:59 PM
Stronger field than in Eastbourne

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:01 PM
Sorana Cirstea [ROU] - Maria Kirilenko [RUS,6] No :sobbing:

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:01 PM


dare i say it CAMILLE PIN!!

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:02 PM
Safina despite her 'I hate grass' attitude. She should be able to handle all these players on grass.

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:06 PM
sara errani :haha::haha::haha::haha::haha::haha:

no i think dementieva but i hope flavia

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:11 PM
Safina despite her 'I hate grass' attitude. She should be able to handle all these players on grass.

I'm thinking the same thing. Although I also give Srebotnik a shot.

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:17 PM
I would dare to say Yanina... but after the weeks she's had, I expect a first or second round exit...
So my guess would be either Srebotnik, or Kateryna Bondarenko if she can continue her current form

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:17 PM
Stronger field than in Eastbourne

yeah i mean look at all those grand slam champions in this field..... oh wait a minute :lol:

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:29 PM
I don't know how Anna can blitz this opportunity...

Chakvetadze, for sure.

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:45 PM
My head says Safina, my heart says Keothavong.

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:51 PM
dinara always played good in this tournament. she did a final and a semifinal last year where she lost 7-6(8-6)third set against JJ

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:52 PM
I'm going for Dinara

Jun 14th, 2008, 03:59 PM
i think dementieva iīd like to have a winner kirilenko :)

Jun 14th, 2008, 04:01 PM
Dementieva , I hope.

Jun 14th, 2008, 04:25 PM
Dementieva doesn't win tennis matches on Saturday

Anna to win the title

Jun 14th, 2008, 04:28 PM
Krajicek have 4 vote :lol:

I think Safina or Dementieva, but i hope Kirilenko :)

Jun 14th, 2008, 04:34 PM

Jun 14th, 2008, 04:40 PM
Anna Chakvetadze

Jun 14th, 2008, 04:43 PM

cn ireland
Jun 14th, 2008, 06:52 PM
I'll pick Elena Dementieva although it could be any number of players as its wide open.

Jun 14th, 2008, 07:00 PM
This is really Krajicek's tournament to turn it around, she has won this tournament already two years ago with a strong field at that time.
Though I expect Dementieva or Safina to win. :)

Jun 14th, 2008, 08:24 PM
i picked anna chakvetadze not only because she rules lol but because her half of the draw is much weaker. of the 4 players i can see winning this (anna, safina, lena d and kata) the other 3 are in the top half. i realy hope anna plays some decent tennis here because it should be more than enough to see her make the final.

Jun 14th, 2008, 08:38 PM
Chaky!!!! :worship:

Jun 14th, 2008, 08:44 PM
I think Safina will take the title :)

Jun 14th, 2008, 08:46 PM
It's interesting-most of the seeds here aren't great on grass. Chakvetadze is defending champ, and who knows-maybe she'll turn her year around here? I don't know why a lot of people freaked when she did badly on clay, since Anna has never done that well in previous years on clay. She seems to prefer faster surfaces.

Dementieva and Safina have great chances too, but again, they don't do that well on grass.

I would love to see either Schiavone or Kirilenko take it, but I'm not expecting either to win.

Jun 15th, 2008, 10:58 AM
Not a single decent grasscourter in the draw. Anyone can win.

Jun 15th, 2008, 11:00 AM
pls win a title LenaD :help: :help:

Jun 15th, 2008, 11:03 AM
Elena Dementieva


Jun 15th, 2008, 01:33 PM
I'd love to see Klara Zakopalova win here. Previous champion and another final as well.

Jun 15th, 2008, 02:06 PM
I'd love to see Klara Zakopalova win here. Previous champion and another final as well.

She does really seem to like this tournament as a 10-2 career record attests to.

And yet she has a pretty poor record in all other grass court competitions with a 4-8 record on non-Dutch grass. And only one win over a top 200 player on non-Dutch grass. Strange.

I think that Anna will repeat as champion. Her portion of the draw looks favorable. If she can get it together, then i like her chances of winning the tournament.

Stronger field than in Eastbourne

Eastbourne - 3 GS Champions

Rosmalen - 0 GS Champions


I picked Elena D, hope she can finally get a grass title.
