This FO scares me.....

pricisely because it's so unpredictable (and yes, i know this is supposed to be good for women's tennis but it's not good for my delicate nerves. )

this is what's happened so far: Justine out in the 2nd round to a player ranked 86th in the world, both Amelie and Jen challenged respectively in the second and 1st round, promising players like Sprem beaten in the first round...

are most people still convinced that only amelie, venus, serena, jen or davenport could win or are we going to see more upsets over the next few rounds?

i am beginning to get nervous....

well . it excites me


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

Who the hell says the same players have 2B in the SF's and beyond all The Time? Did Iva ruin RG by winning It In '97? Did Mary in Y2K? Plus, upsets are necessary for new stars to emerge; you know that missing "depth" Ppl Post About All The Time?

Shheeesh, I was merely expressing my fear that my fave (Venus) might have a difficult time in view of the difficulty many of the top players are having and the general unpredictability of the tournament so far. I did not say this was undesirable of tennis in general. Okay?

As ANYBODY'S favorite player should! That's what makes someone like Venus a great player: ovacoming serious challenges. And no player (or team) will always win. It's called "sports" I think. If victory were certain, why bother keeping score?

and upsets are contagious, the lower ranked players must definitely be feeding off of all these upsets

C'mon! Give DelMonte a break. Her nerves are already "delicate" as she put it, and you keep pounding on her. Some people have no heart, Geez!
