US Open starts today

31 08 2009

Unfortunately I am still in the Netherlands, so I can’t attend this years tournament. Definitely the first week I love a lot. Going from small court to court to see as many interesting matches and players as I can. The Internet and TV have to do it for me this year. I bet next year I will be back to enjoy it all in full swing.

The women’s side of the tournament has this year no clear favorite and at least 6/8 possible winners. I will now type down the women who I think will make the last 16 and also a few side options for that round. Before next weekend I will make my prediction for the last 8 and further, I first wanna see how they all get through their first few rounds.

Dinara Safina – Patty Schnyder. I hope Patty will make it this far during her last slam. Razzano is ranked higher and is on good form so she has a good chance to beat Patty.

Sabine Lisicki- Jelena Jankovic. Most people probably predict an all serbian round here, but Ana Ivanovic has done nothing to impress me this year.

Elena Dementieva- Nadia Petrova. Dementieva has a very tough third round though in Maria Sharapova. Both have showed a great hard-court season so the third round is too early for this match up in my opinion.

Caroline Wozniacki- Svetlana Kuznetsova. Kuznetsova is not in good form though so she might get an early upset by either Shahar Peer or Agnes Szavay.

Viktoria Azarenka- Na Li. Li always plays good slam so I think she will upset Agnieszka Radwanska in the third round

Kim Clijsters- Venus Williams. What a great match this will be!!

Elena Vesnina- Amelie Mauresmo. But this section is packed with good players so very hard to pick. Zvonareva, Chakvetadze and Pennetta have good chances as well.

Daniela Hantuchova- Serena Williams. I think Hantuchova will upset Stosur early on, the Aussie girl has played too many tournaments lately. 

Hope I am right with my predictions, but in tennis you never know what’s gonna happen.I will try to write a little piece about the US Open DSCN3260every day the next 2 weeks.
