the draw would have been even better had they done the Shuffling under normal WTA rules after Venus withdrew.

I just don't want to even think about that. Too subjective.

I like fresh2flash predictions, I hope that yesterday's Alyona's bad match was just weather. I am worried about Lina's tendency to completely crumble against big opponents in big matches.

Tenn_ace is obviously predicting The All-Belgian final, and that in the third tournament in a row Henin will slaughter all our Russians. No way!

OK, I'll give it a try.

Kuznetsova 3Rd ( but I have a feeling that this could be wrong and could be a big surprise ).
Douchevina 1rd
Zvonareva SF
Lina K. QF
Masha K. 2nd Rd
Alinka 2nd Rd.

Nadya R16
Alyona L. QF

Masha S. 3rd Rd
Elena D. R16

Nastya SF
Elena B. R16
Dinara 2nd Rd ( this has a potential for a surprise too, she is definitely a darkhorse )

ys, even funnier.. picking Nastya to beat Henin/Bovina in the QF. She's in really good form coming into USO. :rolleyes:
Look at Nastya's past results, she is alsways hot or cold. She has three very winnable first rounds, and then she could be a completely different player. Like last year at New Haven, she siuddenly beats Henin and Hingis. Then loses to Bedanova off all people at US Open. Then goes to win Bahia. This is the best surface of Myskina, and having to face no big falt-hitting babes, there is no player in this draw she can't beat on a good day. I am just betting on her having that one good day at quarters.

I don't know who loses when, but I want to see 6 Russians in the round of 16.
And at least two in the quarters.
And the most important thing is for someone to have a career tournament. And have an impressive breakthrough.
