I think they do very well.
The top 4 there we may well see in the QF's though Lena D doesnt have a great record at the AO.
I hope Maria K in her 1st AO and Vera D make an impact.

Best of luck to Maria S, Lena D, Maria K and Vera D

I think ELena D , Nastya, Sveta and Maria will reach so far in the second week

Hope Vera D has a good performance

Elena is due a good AO, so I hope she does. And by good, I hope she wins it

I would love for her to begin the season with a Slam.

Lina will be playing
unless something else goes wrong

Nina B and Rodionova should be in qualies (on previous cut offs)

Lena D should do pretty good, as its fairly slow, Lena just needs to get going one win does her wonders

minimum requirement
4-5 Q-Finalists, then we'll see...... (another slam title isnt asking too much is it ?)

i think nastya,masha and maybe bepa zvonereva will reach QFs. possibly kuznetsova too.
i am realli hoping lena d gets a good start to the season and of course i want her to win the aussie open but a QF spot at least would make her happy i think.

Lena D. never did well in the winter. no sure why, so not waiting anything special this season as well.

i agree with Phong and say that either Elena Dementieva or Anastasia Myskina will win the title. Although u all know i am cheering for Elena. And i would give her the edge to win the title, espescially if her serve is different, even if she just doesn't double fault anymore, she will win. Maria will do well. But she will not win. Sveta will lose in the middle of the tourny and vera might survive one round further. Nadia could fall anywhere from 2nd round to semi. Lena B could go as far as semi, but not past.
I think this will be the most Russian dominated slam ever!
I can't wait!

In general, it's waaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to early to make any kind of legitimate predictions.There were no tournaments played yet, so we don't what form they are in, we don't know the schedule... The only one thing you can base your preictions on is the past and that's not a very good basis. But if you do: Nastya will do the best, followed by Maria S., Svetlana.

And no, none of them will win it.
