Well...I like her. She's very charming. I'll double Jinx you just for
fun, and for those Russian tennis fans like Eggy and Co.

GO SERENA! She'll win...For Sure!!

Dementieva has a 1 in 250,000 chance to beat Serena... (Refer to the pre-Venus match thread!)

Wasn't that "250,000" the most hysterical thread ever?.

Actually, it was started by an anti-williams fan.

Anyways, I am now scared this thread will backfire on me. Jinxing could be such a tricky thing and if not handled properly, it could explode in my face.

Who started the now infamous "250,000" thread? A hardcore fan or
a jinxer?

May be we just know that there is more to this world than the physical world, may be there is a jinx goddess waiting to count how many people predicted a win by one player or the other and rearranging the winner based on our vote - sort of like American Idol. Don't ridicule our believe system as we didn't ridicule yours.

The first 250,000 to 1 thread was started by someone else. I just kept a good thing going!

Elena has a 1 in 250,000 chance of beating Serena.
You can cut and paste it!

Hey...that's a good one. I like that; the "JINX GODDESS".
1 point to Eta Psi on the scoreboard!
