Ok, I'll bite first - I'll go for finalist where she'll meet Serena...I'd be thrilled to be wrong again.

I'd say the semis, because Myskina- who she could meet in the fourth round, has been in horrible form, and her potential QF opponent- Dementieva- is someone she beat last week.

And, btw, Panda, Kim and Serena are on the same side of the draw, so they can't meet in the final

Oops, I must have misread something somewhere.

No they're not. Kim is in the top half of the draw and Serena is in the bottom half.

I vote for Semis because she has already played a lot of matches so maybe she'll be exhausted after 12 matchs in 3 weeks!

Mm, i doubt about it... We can't be too optimistic, it's still her comeback!
But ok, in IW she proved to be back. However we can't ask too much now.
Yestday I said Semis... Would be a dream already...

BUT hey, remember nobody said she could win IW
Hope I'm wrong AGAIN

I'm also looking forward to the comeback of Juju... will she adjust as easy as OUR KIM, THE COMEBACK QUEEN? will she winn the tournament immediately? srr, doubt about it...

You know I was worried about Myskina too..but then I've been hearing Myskina is in horrible form, so some are questioning whether she'll even get to the 4th round. In addition Myskina has a horrible record in Miami..she's 3-4 in Miami, never advancing past the 3rd round.

Frankly Dechy has me a bit worried..Kim is only 2-1 against her and both wins for Kim were 3 setters, while Dechy's one win was in straights
