Look at the 4th quarter... That is real, real hard. So unfortunate for Monica also. Generally, this draw is easy for Serena, all the players out of form are in her half, I assume her road will be easy. Venus, on the other hand, gets the question marks in Lindsay or Monica, and then one of the in-form Belgians... I would expect things to develop this way:
Serena def. Smashnova - easy, no need in comments.
Dokic vs. Myskina - tough. Both in bad form... I think I pick the Russian.
Capriati def. Farina - Cappy is real bad at the moment, but got a VERY EASY first round. If she can't win it, she doesn't deserve half of her ranking.
Hantuchova def. Maleeva - not sure again. If the Slovak plays well, she goes through rather easily, but she might be tired and out of form after recent weeks. I pick Daniela, but not without a question mark.
Clijsters def. Rubin - a tough first round, but Kim should come through.
Henin def. Dementieva - Juju is in a great form and should have no problem in this match.
Seles vs. Davenport - the big question mark. Monica is coming back from injury, Lindsay also had minor trouble, both have same strengths and weaknesses... I go with Lindsay, but really not sure.
Venus def. Schnyder - tough luck for Patty, Venus must be very rusty to lose.

QF projection:
Serena def. Myskina
Hantuchova def. Capriati
Henin def. Clijsters
Venus def. Lindsay

Serena def. Hantuchova
Venus def. Henin

F: Venus def. Serena

VERY TOUGH Draw on the bottom half. VERY TOUGH.

Top half - Serena should just blow by them all.
