* I can NOT actually predict against Venus. I completely concede that Lindsay is the favorite, nor have I seen anything that indicates Venus will win. I don't care. This is an all-heart/no head prediction.

** It would be really cool to have two Japanese players in the QFs.

*** Because of all the blondes on tour, Vera is theone I want to sleep with. And I have absolutely no faith in Dementieva under any kind of pressure.

I utterly loath the 32 seed system. But with three players not seeded in the top sixteen into the 4th round, I have to concede the system has SOME validity.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

Bottom half is true to form, and I think it will stay that way into the next round.

Listen to your bitter rantings?

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

no, I think it's more fun to listen to your girlie rantings, especially when it looks like you are with your period (and I know you are not "technically a girl", just behave like a rejected teenager).

Ouch. It hurts. Deep down inside. Anyone got a band-aid?

Well, I posted the results of the third round matches. You can start 'refuting' now. Or is this another example of you talking out of your ass without being able to back it up?

BTW, I posted over this thread too. http://wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=131582&page=2 Could you please get fucking moving? Youhaven't refuted one single thing since yousiad that you'd refute it, and I quote 'whenever' I post 'anything'. Stop acting like a dmumbass with no credibility and refute something already.

Why? Vera SHOULD rip EllieD's 2nd serve to shreds.

I decided to predict the rest of the tournament. I've been decidedly WRONG in tipping so far this tourney though

Justine Henin Hardenne def Nadia Petrova 76 64
Svetlana Kuznetsova def Mary Pierce 26 62 64
Shinobu Asagoe def Eleni Daniliidou 75 75
Lindsay Davenport def Venus Williams 63 46 75
Jennifer Capriati def Ai Sugiyama 63 62
Serena Williams def Patty Schynder 63 61
Vera Zvonareva def Elena Dementieva 63 67 64
Amelie Mauresmo def Francesca Schiavone 61 62

I enjoy Volcana's threads. They sure beat the "Graf is forgotten", "The True Story" crap we have to put up with.

Look forward to your predictions for the semifinals.

FUCK YOU, SEWTA.
