To kick off with my prediction, I think she will reach the 4th round, but I fear she will fall by the hands of Amélie then.

Let's put it this way; I'll consider IW as a success for Kim if she gets to the 4th round as it would mean to win three matches in a row.

Seeing who's in her way to the quarters, I'd say Amélie is the one who can stop her and I think she will stop Kim too as Kim will still need to play several matches against the top to slain them all again.

Anyway, a match between Kim and Amélie should be great to watch if they are both on fire that day but it would be horror for my nerves too.

Oh no I wrote an analysis but then forgot to post it before voting

Anyway...

I think Kim will lose in the 4th round - if she faces Amélie. We all know Kim's game was better than Amélie's before the injury trouble but right now Amélie is the more confident player.
Nicole Pratt should be easy but you never know... Last time they played the match was also 3 sets right? Asagoe is the 16th seed? I thought she wasn't even a top-50 player
Jankovic might mean trouble. But I still think Kim can handle her...
It's so hard to predict Kim's results. We don't really know what her game will be like. Same as in Antwerp? Better? Worse?
Let's just cross our fingers Good luck Kim

Due to being in an overly happy mood today, I will be reckless and predict a semi final appearance. Just because. I can't base it on anything other than wishful thinking and my usual optimism. How does that saying go? Hope for the best, expect the worst.

I'm not gonna say, though I think Kim can kick some ass if the injury holds. I'm gonna put my money where my mouth is and express myself in the betting shop!

I voted for a 4th round because she can handles the players that will play against her in the first rounds if she plays like in Antwerp!

I'm going to be absolutely reckless...Semi's! If she's playing like in Antwerp, she ought to get to the 4th round against Amélie. My better judgement tells me she is bound to lose (loose?) that match - but hey, Amélie has got this n°1 position to get nervous about, and Kim has got absolutely nothing to lose by then. So I gather she pulls the upset (okay, I wish it more than anything ), goes on to beat Bovina - but is then too tired to make a fist against Kuzzie - 6 matches in a row is a lot returning from injury.

Mmmm, think about those quality points she could collect

Of course, I'm a lousy gambler, so my prediction is probably crap - but I will not know until it's over, because I'll be skiing some French Alp

I'm going with the majority here and think she'll make it to the 4th round. Pratt and Asagoe shouldn't be a big problem, Jankovic (or Chakvetadze) might be a bit more difficult, but she should be able to pull that off too. Momo will be too strong for her at this point, I'm afraid...

I am sorry but I don't see her winning against Amélie. Although if these two play together, this isn't good for my nerves at all, don't ask me to choose a fave either If she does go as far as that though, it'll be great for her!

I've also voted 4th round. Of course I hope she gets a lot further, but I think that if she can make it to the 4th round, it would be very great, and then the next tournament the QF, then the SF, ..

You're right Cindy, she'll do better at each tourney she plays. Mind you she got to the QF in Antwerp...
