Capriati?

She hasn't beaten a higher ranked player in over a year, how is she going to win the Us Open?
She has only beaten one top 10 player this year :eek: Chanda Rubin..and I think her record against top 10 this year is 1-8..

All due respect to Jen cause she is an amazing player, but she is definatly a long shot..

I don't think Jennifer is a long shot. With Serena out and the sea of injuires - who knows what a good draw and some luck can do. Jennifer has a lot of experience and has 3 slams. She tends to do her best in Slams, so I would never count her out or call her a long shot.

Wow, some shocking picks by Pam....NOT!! It has always been Williams vs Belgian at the slams, so there´s nothing new there. Capriati?! Pluuuzzzz! All the girls know that they just have to make sure of winning a set against her and they will win in three.

Pam REALLY taking some risk with her predictions there! :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

This is tennis and anything can happen anytime. If Jenn has the right draw and her opponents are off, then she can beat them. I think if she is in Justine's quarter, she has the best chance to getting through. And then she'll need to meet Lindsay, and then Venus in the final. But then again, she's also possibly injured. I guess we'll have a better view this week when she plays at the pilot pen.

I guess I'll have to say that I agree with Pam's picks. :rolleyes: :eek: But I think it'll come down to Kim or Venus.

You think Jenn would beat Lindsay? Too many people think that...need I remind you of their record? Lindsay leads 9-2 I think - quite dominant if you ask me. GO LINDSAY

Hey, speaking of 'what are people smoking'…what is this? Some of that stuff is supposed to give you insights.

If Jenn has the right belief in herself and her opponents are laser sharp, then she can beat them.

If Venus is healthy or atleast 70-75% she steam rolls them all!

Interesting sidenote,
Venus has only been beaten 4 times at the USO
and only one of the three players is even competing,
Lindsay.
