J&SCup. This tournament started with 4 players who had won Tier I's on clay.
Majoli's gone.

With this draw, the semi-finalists seem a foregone conclusion. That's no fun.
So let's assume one of my projected SF'ists lose. Which one will it be?
And who/why will they lose?

Code:
seed             rank      quarterfinals   semi-finals
----             -----     -------------   -----------
[ 1] WILLIAMS, V [  3] _
[ Q] ONDRASKOVA  [118]  |_ WILLIAMS, V _
     SCHIAVONE   [ 34] _|  SCHIAVONE    |
[ 6] DANIILIDOU  [ 15]                  |_ WILLIAMS, V 
[ 3] HANTUCHOVA  [  9] _                |  CHLADKOVA
     ZULUAGA     [ 69]  |_ [s]ZULUAGA[/s]     _|
     CHLADKOVA   [ 39] _|  CHLADKOVA
[ Q] PARRA       [159]

[ Q] KLEINOVA    [138] _
     SERNA       [ 40]  |_ SERNA _______
     CASANOVA    [ 49] _|  DOKIC        |
[04] DOKIC       [ 10]                  |_ DOKIC
[07] PISTOLESI   [ 21] _                |  MAURESMO
     CRAYBAS     [ 65]  |_ PISTOLESI   _| 
[LL] VORACOVA    [130] _|  MAURESMO
[02] MAURESMO    [  7]
Dokic and Pistolesi are already in the QF's

i think dokic with her form could have lost against casanova and to me that was the most possible upset but she got through that match so i think she'll reach the semis.

now i think hantuchova is the mostly likely to lose before the semis. she's in bad form and has to play zuluaga someone who is good on clay.

I agree with Gowza, although there is also a chance that Mauresmo may lose as well. I'm hoping she'll do well because I want her to secure a higher ranking. But having just come back from injury...and the retrieval prowess of Anna...it could be tough. So I guess my first pick is Hantuchova, my second is Mauresmo. But I hope they all make it through. Should be a good SF and Final. :)

Amazingly enough, the SF are not as set as they would be on other surfaces. Given this draw on grass, pfff - the SF is set. But this is clay, which changes everything.

If Venus loses before the SF, I don't know what I'll do, but it would be very extreme. Hantuchova still cannot adjust to clay, and Zuluaga gave her enough trouble at the Australian, that I could really see Fabiola getting into the Semis. Dokic might lose to Serna, given Serna's upset capability as well as Dokic's lackluster form currently, but maybe she's breaking out of it. The last one is totally on Amelie's racket. I love Anna, but seriously, if Amelie's well (physically and mentally), she's gonna blow Anna away. But if she's sort of off, Anna has a good shot, especially on clay.

Hantuchova might fall, but I see the rest coming through with relative ease.

Venus is gonna win... blah blah blah... but the asterisk will be there.

Serna to beat Dokic?

Which asterisk is that? The one noting that Venus only won a tournament because a top 20 player who was committed got sick?

I'm glad I at least got Fabiola right ;) - Vamos Fabi :D

Eleni losing to Francesca was surprising, especially at the score :eek: - although, Schiavone probably does prefer clay more than Eleni. Even still :eek:

Even more shocking was Amelie's score :eek: Granted the second and third sets were more like it, dropping a 6-2 to a Lucky Loser is not really something I see her doing very often :eek: The Pistolesi vs. Mauresmo match will be very interesting...or ridiculously boring...and REALLY long :rolleyes: ;)

EB d. VW 3-6, 6-4, 7-5 counts... because I say it counts.

Do not argue this with me, because I will not listen. :p

Oh, and I forgot to mention that Lena is the defending champion here... and that title will remain until 2004... because she won't get many chances to defend.

Just finished watching (all nine million years of) it. You got the last two right...

I got Fabi right as well... but it was kinda obvious, really.

Jelena's an easier opponent for Amélie, but she might be tired after that Pistolesi marathon - and as I type Venus is 0-3 down to Schiavone :eek:
