– actually, this is an indictment of Kuznetsova. I don't see her having any chance of making a long run in the tournament.

Is it just me or this a little bit harder to call than the men's...

I'll go with that one who played doubles with Navratilova a few years back...I think she won a little tournament called the US Open...

Her name is Svetlana Kuznetsova or something like that...

That's it Charlie. Just post your picks and TAT will take care of the rest. Keep an eye out for the results thread and make sure to keep up with your picks until you're banished to the Loser's Lounge.

Good Luck to all!

I think it's interesting how some players get chosen so many times.

Here are the number of times each player has been chosen

Most Popular Picks
Sprem-9
Sugiyama-7
Kuznetsova- 6
Golovin- 6
Hantuchova-4
Peng-4
Morigami-3
Garrigues- 3
Kirilenko- 2
Srebotnik- 2
Petrova- 2
Randiantefy- 2
Dokic- 1
Jankovic- 1
Davenport- 1
S. Williams- 1

54 contestants so far, only 16 players chosen out of a possible 64.

I don't understand why so many people chose Sprem. She had a terrible year last year, and Alona Bondarenko is no push-over. Same goes for Sugiyama, I don't know anything about her opponet but Sugiyama has been getting upset in the first round of tournaments for quite a while now. I think a lot of people are going to be sent to the losers lounge after day 1.

Rather difficult I thougt. I want to keep the big guns for later rounds and there are quite a few possible upsets with the unranked players. I'm taking a little risk and I pick Katarina Srebotnik.
