Maria made the quarterfinals last year (49 points to defend). She was forced to withdraw against Hantuchova because of an injury (right pectoralis muscle strain - chest muscle). I think she can do it better this year when she keeps her impressive form. Good luck

Maria has a pretty decent draw. I see her advancing into the finals here.

Maria has a very good chance here. Should the tournament progress how it's expected, Sugiyama/Safina and then Dementieva/Pennetta should provide a tough test. There are some tough players in her section of the draw but I have every confidence in Maria, she should better her last performance here.

Pretty good draw Maria seems to be growing in confidence and play this week so i believe that there is no one here that should really bother Maria if she continues to play well.

Well she certainly has the momentum going after San Diego

LA could be very interesting now that she just won San Diego
She has a good draw here, so getting deep in the draw shouldn't be a problem.
Let's hope for another great week

this is certainly a notch or two weaker than SD
Only Dinara, whom Maria has made 2 infamous chokes to in the past poses an early challenge, but she's not in form right now and Maria is, so I see no problems there
then Elena D whom Maria should outserve then Nadia who's making a comeback.
The way I see it she's definitely the fave to win this one.
