You know, I'm glad I didn't take part in any kind of bracket challenge for the women's draw in Indian Wells! Talk about March Madness!
This tournament has been hit by so many upsets that I can't even begin to list them all, but I'll throw out a few: Svetlana Kuznetsova, Maria Sharapova, Flavia Pennetta ... you get the idea. Makes you wonder who could bring the hardware home.
There are some big names still around, such as Kim Clijsters, but with the way things have gone, it might be another slightly unexpected player that could take advantage, say, like Vera Zvonareva. I didn't think she would win last year, but she pulled it off. Why not envision her repeating? She's playing solidly so far here.
But if Aravane Rezai was holding up the trophy, I wouldn't be surprised either!
