I think Amelie is going to be the girl to watch. She pulled out of Fed Cup and is reportedly taking care of her body and working on her mental game even more. Jennifer and Amelie play the best out of all the top players on these courts (barring Kim and Hingis).

The bounce, speed and heat seem to be in their control. Realistically, out of the Russinas GAMEwise, this suits Elena. She is speedy, strong and has the powerful groundies and compact strokes to do damage.

However Elena's game and temperament/mentality need to be in sync.

I do think Nastya will perform well here. I'm not holding out for Maria or Sveta. The heat is intense, Maria puts so much into every match that the heat will be another factor that will drain energy from her. If she can overcome expending so much energy, then she has a great chance too.

My picks

1) Amelie
2) Nastya/Lindsay
3) Serena/Justine
4) Maria/ElenaD/Jen
5) Venus/Sveta

Elena said she lost due to a lack of practice and the fact she spent Russian Xmas in Moscow. It was was very bad scheduling on her part. But more importantly, I think the heat bugs Elena. The court she can handle, she's reached the 4th round before.

If Elena can master the heat and win a 1st round match, then she'll be fine. If she wins her first match, I'll definitely see her a potential champion. Just one match.

Elena plays so open stance, that having a a nice bounce and nice speed on the court will help her game. Her groundies looked so destructive at RG and especially the USO.

I think the 2005 AO will show how far so many of our RR women have improved.
Alina, Sveta, Maria, Anastasia - they all moved forward this year.
Elena D., B., L., and Nadia - they all have very little to defend.

I expect very big results in Melbourne.
