View Full Version : Which seeds will go down first in Melbourne??


A-Bond
Jan 16th, 2011, 02:32 PM
(1) Wozniacki vs. Dulko
Dulko can be really dangerous for seeds at GS-Events, but she lacks power to get through Wozniacki. Though Caro suffered a straight set loss to Cibulkova last week who is not that powerful either.
(2) Zvonareva vs. Bammer
Bammer is tricky and showed good matches against good players, but she has been inexistent since her great 2007 and she also lacks the power to be dangerous for Vera.
(3) Clijsters vs. Safina
Great match in terms of Names, 2 former World Nr. 1s against each other. Dinara showed that she can beat Kim, but she is nowhere near her form in 2008-2009 and I don't think she will be able to pull out the upset or make it really competitive.
(4) Williams vs. Errani
First Venus-match since the US Open. Errani can be dangerous but Venus should get through that match easily, Errani has nothing to trouble her.
(5) Stosur vs. Davis
I have no idea about Davis but I think for young players it's always difficult if they meet players with a different style and Stosur's serve and spin will be enough to get the win.
(6) Schiavone vs. Parra Santonja
Francesca was a bit up and down in her warm-up events and even injured herself a little bit. Parra Santonja can hit the ball hard unless most of the other spaniards but she has never been a force against better ranked opponents, so Francesca should win easily.
(7) Jankovic vs. Kudryavtseva
You never know with Jelena... She lost to Rezai in Sydney and hasn't played well here last year when she suffered an early exit in Sydney as well. Kudryavtseva had a decent fall in 2010 but she failed to do anything since Tashkent and a player who makes such an amount of UEs shouldn't be able to beat Jelena.
(8) Azarenka vs. Woehrle
I have never seen Woehrle play but I don't think she has a chance vs. Vika.
(9) Li vs. Arvidsson
Na is considered as a favourite since her great week in Sydney, where she beat Kim in the finals. However, you NEVER know with Na. She can ballbash herself out of every Tournament and I think she's better when nobody has her on the bill instead of her being a favourite. She has SF points to defend as well. But I think she will get through Ardvisson easily who was completely useless in her warm-ups, losing to Molik :o
(10) Peer vs. Johansson
Peer is a silent player without getting too much attention (surprised she is seeded 10 :o) and I think her solid game will get her easily through the first rounds.
(11) Henin vs. Mirza
Henin played solid at the Hopman Cup, though her injury isn't completely healed yet. Mirza is ALWAYS dangerous and she has the potential to trouble Henin, but it won't be enough to beat Justine and I just don't see Justine losing 1R in a slam.
(12) Radwanska vs. Date-Krumm
A very interesting 1R. Kimiko is very dangerous, although she hasn't played too well at the GS-Events. Radwanksa is coming back from an injury and we have no idea about her form. Though Kimiko would probably prefer a hard hitter over a pusher. Kimiko wasn't too impressive in her warm-up events and if Radwanksa is moving well it will be difficult for Kimiko.
(13) Petrova vs. Pervak
Seriously has Petrova ever won an AO warm-up match? Nevertheless she always played well in Melbourne. Pervak is a leftie but I think Nadia will get through this one.
(14) Sharapova vs. Tanasugarn
Sharapova is really unpredictable. She has won here and played some good matches last year, but she also suffered some bad losses, like her first match here last year. She didn't show up great in Auckland and I'm not too sure what to expect. Tanasugarn plays very flat and I'm not sure if that fits Maria's game.
(15) Bartoli vs. Garbin
The perfect match for Bartoli. A player who has nothing to trouble her and she can spray winners all over the place. Seriously if Garbin wins this Marion needs to stop playing tennis :o
(16) Pavlyuchenkova vs. Flipkens
Pavlyuchenkova improved in terms of consistency and played good in Brisbane. She had trouble with tricky players in the past, but she should get through this one without having too much problems.
(17) Rezai vs. Zahlavova Strycova
Zahlavova Strycova beat Nadia in Sydney and won the Doubles there, so she has lots of confidence. Rezai is soo hot and cold, but she hasn't been a real force in GS-Events. This might be an upset.
(18) Kirilenko vs. Oprandi
I think Kirilenko is overrated and I really love Romina, but Romina lost to Maria 1-6 3-6 on clay, so no chance she will trouble Makiri on hard. Additionally, this is Kiri's best slam.
(19) Ivanovic vs. Makarova
Ivanovic is injured and I don't know if she's fully fit for AO. Makarova played outstanding in Eastbourne but hasn't done anything great since then. She troubled Azarenka in Sydney, but I don't think she has what it takes to beat Ana.
(20) Kanepi vs. Rybarikova
Strange to see Kanepi seeded 20... She's a player who can play well at GS-Events, reaching 3 times the QFs, but somehow she isn't really relevant on the tour, has harly won a good match at a big WTA-Event... She's unpredictable as well but Rybarikova is in bad shape and Kanepi should get through this one.
(21) Wickmayer vs. Groth
THIS might be the night-session upset of the first day. Wickmayer isn't playing bad, but she didn't improve at all last year, her serve even got worse. Last year everyone was afraid of drawing her as a qualifier, but I'm not too sure what she can do now. Jarmila is in great shape and I think with her groundies and her serve she should win this one. There are just 4 points which are speaking against her: She might be tired from Hobart, she hasn't played well in Melbourne before, we don't know how she handles the situation of playing in front of her home crowd on such a big court and Wickmayer has more GS-experience. At least in terms of game Jarmila should win.
(22) Pennetta vs. Rodionova
Anastasia played solid at the GS-Events last year and had some good results. On the other hand, Pennetta has decreased in singles, focussing on being a doubles-force. But Flavia should get through this one.
(23) Kuznetsova vs. Riske
Sometimes you see flashes of the old Kuznetsova, but then again she's playing bad. She choked badly against 2 golden flowers in her warm-up events. Riske is playing her second slam after Wimbly 10 but I don't think she's ready yet to score a big win.
(24) Kleybanova vs. Falconi
Another player next to Rezai and Kanepi who is unpredictable, losing to Peers in Brisbane but reaching the semis in Sydney. I have never seen Falconi play, but Alisa usually plays well here, I think she will win this one.
(25) Kvitova vs. Peers
Kvitova played very well in Brisbane, but she also belongs to the group of unpredictable players. I think this Tournament is a good opportunity to show if she can be dangerous on a regular note and not just in 3 tournaments of the year. Peers beat a good ball-striker in Brisbane, but I don't think she can beat Petra.
(26) Martinez Sanchez vs. Arn
Huge upset-potential. Greta won Auckland and certainly has lots of confidence. Martinez Sanchez beat an injured Hantuchova in Sydney, but after her injury she hasn't been back there where she has been before. I think Greta has great chance to win this one, though she will face something different than monotone baseline-hitting à la Sharapova, Goerges and Wickmayer.
(27) Dulgheru vs. Morita
Dulgheru is really bad on hard courts and is yet to prove that she's more than a clay-specialist. However, Morita is extremely weak and I think Dulgheru will take this one.
(28) Hantuchova vs. Kulikova
Another match with huge upset potential. We all know how Danka is in general, she can lose to everyone. Kulikova struggled with injuries but she proved last year in Dubai that she can be an extremely difficult opponent. She has good groundies and she's moving well. Daniela on the other hand has a very bad injury and unless her GS-experience will lead her through this I unfortunately think she will lose this one :sad:
(29) Cibulkova vs. Kerber
Kerber is another tricky leftie and had some decent results last year. Dominika is not a bad GS-Player, although she lost here last year in her first match. She beat Caroline in Sydney and I think she's very hungry to get to the 3rd round again to repeat that performance. She'll win this one.
(30) Petkovic vs. Craybas
No comment. Absolutely no chance for Jill.
(31) Safarova vs. Zhang
Lucie can lose on every day to every one, but she really should win that one. Additionally she played good in Brisbane (though that mustn't be an indicator for her).
(32) Pironkova vs. Parmentier
Pironkova is probably the worst seed ever and she will get back to where she belongs after Wimbly. However she has an extremely easy first match and I think she will win this one.


What do U think?

Jelena Jankovic. I seriously doubt, that she can even handle Alla these days.

Wickmayer maybe.

I can see Jankovic losing if Alla plays well.
Rezai could get thrown off by Barbie's play.

JJ will loose in staight sets, but sponsors will give her BYE to the final,
so Radwanska will fall with Wickmayer.
Logistic.

A-Bond, nice overview altogether, thanks for the good work.

Personally I'm already scared shitless for Caro and Aravane.
Vika will do just fine, that much I know.

wozniak 1990
Jan 16th, 2011, 05:57 PM
Schiavone will lose in 2nd round against Marino. Rebecca can reach 4th round I think.

She beat Bartoli last summer and almost took a set to Venus in US Open. She will be the big surprise of this tournament!

If she doesn't lose to Namigata ;)

PLP
Jan 16th, 2011, 07:20 PM
Great analysis! Here is My opinion on the more probable upsets:

(1) Wozniacki vs. Dulko
Dulko can be really dangerous for seeds at GS-Events, but she lacks power to get through Wozniacki. Though Caro suffered a straight set loss to Cibulkova last week who is not that powerful either.

Tough 1st rd for Caroline. She hasn't found her form yet and Dulko is a very talented opponent who tends to bring it in big events against top players. Caro needs to keep calm if she finds herself down in this match, not get frustrated. She should still win this, though possibly in 3.

(3) Clijsters vs. Safina
Great match in terms of Names, 2 former World Nr. 1s against each other. Dinara showed that she can beat Kim, but she is nowhere near her form in 2008-2009 and I don't think she will be able to pull out the upset or make it really competitive.

Dinara is due for a big win soon. It's like the universe has been testing her in every event, giving her the hardest possible draws. Kim should still win this, but her terrible choke in Sydney makes me a bit scared.

(4) Williams vs. Errani
First Venus-match since the US Open. Errani can be dangerous but Venus should get through that match easily, Errani has nothing to trouble her.

Like Caro, Venus has not found her form yet and unfortunately played almost no matches coming in. Still that should not matter if she is 100% fit. Sara is underrated on this board though, and completely unafraid. She is going to give Venus a match.

(5) Stosur vs. Davis
I have no idea about Davis but I think for young players it's always difficult if they meet players with a different style and Stosur's serve and spin will be enough to get the win.

True, but I think Davis has a chance here. Sam could feel a lot of pressure in this match. She is now considered a favorite by many, and Davis is young, up and coming, with nothing to lose.

(7) Jankovic vs. Kudryavtseva
You never know with Jelena... She lost to Rezai in Sydney and hasn't played well here last year when she suffered an early exit in Sydney as well. Kudryavtseva had a decent fall in 2010 but she failed to do anything since Tashkent and a player who makes such an amount of UEs shouldn't be able to beat Jelena.

Have to go with Alla here. Of course Jelena should take this, but she has shown nothing in months and Alla is a very good play due for another good showing. I think Jelena needs a major over-haul. :sad:

(11) Henin vs. Mirza
Henin played solid at the Hopman Cup, though her injury isn't completely healed yet. Mirza is ALWAYS dangerous and she has the potential to trouble Henin, but it won't be enough to beat Justine and I just don't see Justine losing 1R in a slam.

Sania probably will not win this, but I think Justine is still quite vulnerable. I think this could be a great match.

(12) Radwanska vs. Date-Krumm
A very interesting 1R. Kimiko is very dangerous, although she hasn't played too well at the GS-Events. Radwanksa is coming back from an injury and we have no idea about her form. Though Kimiko would probably prefer a hard hitter over a pusher. Kimiko wasn't too impressive in her warm-up events and if Radwanksa is moving well it will be difficult for Kimiko.

Kimiko for the win. We have no idea what sort of shape Aga is in, I think she will go out and try her best, But KDK in 3.

(14) Sharapova vs. Tanasugarn
Sharapova is really unpredictable. She has won here and played some good matches last year, but she also suffered some bad losses, like her first match here last year. She didn't show up great in Auckland and I'm not too sure what to expect. Tanasugarn plays very flat and I'm not sure if that fits Maria's game.

Actually quite concerned for Maria here. Tammy's game is going to trouble her. If she is on then Maria will have to be in good form to take this and she has not shown that. Still, the courts should favor Maria and I think she will pull this out in 3.

(19) Ivanovic vs. Makarova
Ivanovic is injured and I don't know if she's fully fit for AO. Makarova played outstanding in Eastbourne but hasn't done anything great since then. She troubled Azarenka in Sydney, but I don't think she has what it takes to beat Ana.

Is Ana alright? If she is still injured, Makarova has a great chance, she is a tricky player, again due for another good result. Ana should take this in str8's, but only if she is well.

(21) Wickmayer vs. Groth
THIS might be the night-session upset of the first day. Wickmayer isn't playing bad, but she didn't improve at all last year, her serve even got worse. Last year everyone was afraid of drawing her as a qualifier, but I'm not too sure what she can do now. Jarmila is in great shape and I think with her groundies and her serve she should win this one. There are just 4 points which are speaking against her: She might be tired from Hobart, she hasn't played well in Melbourne before, we don't know how she handles the situation of playing in front of her home crowd on such a big court and Wickmayer has more GS-experience. At least in terms of game Jarmila should win.

Awful draw for Yanina. if the pressure doesn't get to Groth she is through to the 2nd rd.

(23) Kuznetsova vs. Riske
Sometimes you see flashes of the old Kuznetsova, but then again she's playing bad. She choked badly against 2 golden flowers in her warm-up events. Riske is playing her second slam after Wimbly 10 but I don't think she's ready yet to score a big win.

Unless the real Svetlana shows up, Allison in 3. I think she is ready for a big win at a major.

(28) Hantuchova vs. Kulikova
Another match with huge upset potential. We all know how Danka is in general, she can lose to everyone. Kulikova struggled with injuries but she proved last year in Dubai that she can be an extremely difficult opponent. She has good groundies and she's moving well. Daniela on the other hand has a very bad injury and unless her GS-experience will lead her through this I unfortunately think she will lose this one :sad:

Really concerned here. Dani should rest if her injury is as bad as it seems. I would love her to make a deep run, she has a good draw, but ONLY if she can move.

(30) Petkovic vs. Craybas
No comment. Absolutely no chance for Jill.

Jill could surprise here. Petkovic has been playing well, but still not a consistent player.

(32) Pironkova vs. Parmentier
Pironkova is probably the worst seed ever and she will get back to where she belongs after Wimbly. However she has an extremely easy first match and I think she will win this one.

:lol:
I think Pironkova is a very good player actually, but I am going to take Pauline for the upset, don't know why.

Vote for Groth, Arn and Zahlavova-Strycova.Kimiko is dangerous player, but somehow Agi will manage to win this for me.Same goes to Sharapova and Hantuchova.Tsveti, I think, can get a win here and reach the 3r - but that's all.

JJ will loose in staight sets.

Pushniacki, Jankovic, Peer, Radwanska, Bartoli, Rezai, Wickmayer, Kvitova, MJMS, Dulgheru, Safarova and Pironkova will fall.

Wozniacki hopefully.

I can see Jankovic losing if Alla plays well.
Rezai could get thrown off by Barbie's play.
