According to Monica's draw, these are her possible oppenents all the way through to the finals ---

1R: Bye
2R: Tulyaganova or Barna
3R: Dechy or Bartoli
QF: Henin-Hardenne or Fernandez
SF: Coetzer, Dementieva, Zvonareva, Stevenson or Hantuchova
F: Capriati, Dokic or Davenport

What do you guys think?? Personally, I think this is a really good draw. Monica should cruise in the second and third round, I'm always confident when she plays against Henin-Hardenne, none of the semifinal opponents scare me at all, and in the final anything can happen...

Overall I'd say this is a pretty good draw, for once :):D

her toughest matchup is the one against her own foot.
if it's fine, she should make the final and possibly beat jenn or lindsay, but if her foot is bothering her, she could struggle all the way through and have to depend too much on screaming winners (low percentage plays). i think she can beat justine, but justine is playing so well right now and loves the dirt. if she gets through that, i can definitely see her making the final ( and how nice would that be??).

GO MONICA! grab up some points, and don't forget the trophy!

She will still most likely be #12 but she would close the gap big time with being in the top ten again.

Wow Jarret that's a lot of work!!! (impressed)
I'm just happy she's playing and at the least I hope she can get to the quarters and compete well in the qfs -- there's still plenty of time for her to earn some points in Warsaw and Rome and hopefully have a good French Open -- of course it would be great if she could beat Justine, especially now that Justine has beaten Serena, it would be a prestige win.
If she gets to the semis, I don't see much of a threat.
In the finals? Well, Jennifer is probably better on clay, and she has a bad record against Lindsay -- I'd almost rather see her beat Lindsay on clay. Hoping she gets past Tulyganova and Dechy (not the easiest opponents) first!
