OZ Open Draw Thoughts Revisited

My thoughts for the men are still holding well, but I have some corrections
to make for the women, since Pierce and Zvereva have both been bounced.

I think it's safe to say that Seles will meet Majoli in place of
Zvereva.  I think Seles will win that match.

I had Pierce squaring off against Schultz-McCarthy and losing to her.  I'm
picking Coetzer to fill Pierce's spot, and instead of Brenda advancing, I'm
forecasting a Coetzer/Martinez semi-final that should be a lot easier for
Conchita than a semi vs. Schultz-McCarthy.

And, last but not least, I'm getting a little giddy at RUBIN's chances.  OK,
she's never beat Sabatini, but she's played her REAL CLOSE before.  Imagine
if you will, if RUBIN does beat Sabatini--she's got a real shot at the
semi-finals!  Rubin has a 2-1 record against ASV for 95 and a 1-1 record        
against Fernandez in 95.  Even if RUBIN loses, she'd provide a GREAT match.

just some thoughts...
