I don't even like Peng. :oh:

And yeah she did. :p

You're acting like you LOVE her. :lol: But Peng is really nice. She was the only one who bothered to sign for all of the audiences whereas Penetta, Hantuchova and Stosur just stop and walk off halfway. I almost got Stosur autograph but she walk off. :sobbing:

Peng, Niculescu, Jovanovski, Martic. At least 2 of them will win their maiden title in 2012.
And I can see Watson, Mladenovic or Stephens winning a MM tournament.

I'm actually really really happy for her. I thought her semifinal run was going to be a fluke, but right away she proved me and others wrong by starting to get good results, and only the second month of the new season, she already had a premier title. Great to see.

Think we will see a variety of new winners... really hoping Christina McHale can get a title.

Also shocking to see how many runner ups Vesnina has had. Would be nice if she could get one too.

She's really come on. She actually should have been in the final last year the week before the US Open in Texas. Her serve deserted her in her semi and she lost to Rezai(???), who then got hammered by Lisicki.

So by the end of the day we can add either Hradecka or Flipkens to the list.

Two brand new singles winners on tour - same thing happened this time last year with Pervak and Strycova-Zahalova winning Tashkent and Quebec City; now this year both tournaments have first time title winners too
