Player Of The Week

Lindsay Davenport

Lindsay gets the extra ace for making it to the semis last week with 2 aces and she now has 3 to use at the Open :yeah:

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_30458.jpg

JJ goes from a slumping outsider to the hot favourite for the US Open following her wins in Montreal and New Haven, Sharapova meanwhile has only lost to Jankovic so far on hard, so if JJ somehow slips up, Masha could be looking at a successful title defense, Kim lastly only has 2 aces but has done surprisingly well and was a finalist here last season, so she's definitely in with a chance.

http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/namedImage/12781/player_40106.jpg

Daniela has a full set of aces and is now an established top 10 player, but is struggling to make the next step to the big league, with some small adjustments, she could be a genuine title threat, Marion too has 4 aces and the ability to take out anyone in the field, but is maybe lacking enough experience, whilst Lindsay has proven with 2 aces she can succeed on this surface, with 3 at the Open she should be even more dangerous.
