MEN'S ODDS

ODDS PLAYER THE SKINNY
3-2
Roger Federer Without Lundgren, the Swiss is the true unknown. But what is known is that his game is a level above everyone else's.
2-1
Andre Agassi The sea parts again for one more Slam run.
4-1
Lleyton Hewitt If he can get by Federer the title could finally be his.
4-1
Andy Roddick Tough opener against Gonzo, and could face more trouble in countrymen Dent and Fish. But he is who he is, so...
6-1
Davide Nalbandian Forget the wrist, it's all in the draw, which is tough.
12-1
Juan Carlos Ferrero A friendly draw should get him back to the quarterfinals again, and maybe even a semi.
14-1
Sebastien Grosjean Former semifinalist has given Agassi problems in the past should they meet in the quarterfinals.
15-1
Guillermo Coria Based on his section, El Mago and wife have likely already booked dinner reservations in South Yarra for week two.
20-1
Taylor Dent Who's been hotter than the Dent-head? No one. And if he can get by Roddick the quarter is his to lose.
25-1
Mark Philippoussis Too much thinking for "The Poo" with a potential second round with Santoro looming. Plus, he's come down off the D-Cup high.
30-1
Rainer Schuettler Will be lucky to see the second week.
35-1
Wayne Ferreira Somehow, someway, he's still going.
40-1
Dominik Hrbaty If the season ended on the 18th, he'd finish No. 1.
45-1
Marat Safin Say goodbye to the "Hot Box" and say hello to a new commitment to returning to No. 1. Or maybe that's just talk.
50-1
Jiri Novak Simple draw for the simple man from the Czech Republic.

Semifinals:
Agassi d. Dent
Federer d. Coria

Finals:
Federer d. Agassi

 


WOMEN'S ODDS

RANK PLAYER THE SKINNY
3-2
Justine Henin With Serena hanging in Hollywood, the beefed-up Belgian is the pick.
3-1
Amelie Mauresmo It's about time for the Frenchwoman to break through.
4-1
Kim Clijsters Bad ankle casts doubt on adopted Aussie's first career Slam run.
10-1
Anastasia Myskina Plays well against the big girls and seems due for a big Slam breakthrough.
10-1
Venus Williams Playing in first real event since Wimbledon final, should do well but a title run is doubtful.
20-1
Nadia Petrova The best of the young Russians is continuing to improve.
30-1
Chanda Rubin Good match with Henin in Sydney and a good draw in Oz makes her a good darkhorse pick to reach the final. Good on ya.
30-1
Lindsay Davenport Shoulder problems should abate enough to do some damage for the only former champion in the field.
50-1
Elena Dementieva Has a good look at a quarterfinal, but which Elena will show up?
60-1
Maria Sharapova Slam contention may still be a year away. But the grunt will be heard loud and clear.

Semifinals:
Henin d. Mauresmo
Rubin d. Venus

FInals:
Henin d. Rubin
