Who Else Thinks That Amelie...

Will have another easy FO draw with herself, Venus and Lindsay being on one side of the draw and Serena, Justine, Maria and most of the other Russians being on the other side?

I think the draw won't be predictable this year.

I'm tellin y'all that the R16 will look like this:

Ivanovic (having defeated Davenport) vs. Clijsters
Schnyder vs. Kuznetsova
Henin-Hardenne vs. Myskina
Williams vs. Williams
Mauresmo vs. Golovin (having beaten Jankovic)
Dementieva vs. Bovina
Petrova vs. Vaidisova (having beaten Zvonareva)
Sharapova vs. Likhovtseva

Then
Clijsters vs. Schnyder
Henin-Hardenne vs. S. Williams
Golovin vs. Dementieva
Vaidisova vs. Sharapova

Then
Clijsters vs. Henin-Hardenne
Golovin vs. Sharapova

Then
Henin-Hardenne def. Sharapova

@ Masha's reaching the final w/o beating a top 15 player .

Again I say it's not possible for Serena to face Venus in the R of 16.

I think a Venus/Davenport QF or R16 is a safe bet
Serena & Venus on same side, probably

& a Maria/Amelie SF

I really just want to see Henin/Mauresmo @ some point in the tournament though...

Problem with detecting bias is that one man's bias one way is another mans opposite bias. Momo would love Maria in her half and would fancy her chances against Russians in general - she would hate Kim or Justine or Serena being there.

Well, the three most threatening people to Amelie; Justine, Serena and Maria will be on the opposite side of her, I believe.

I don't want to say the R word, but I can't stop feeling that the Tournament officials want Amelie to win so badly that they'll do their possible best to make her path to the finals smooth.

I'll apologize tomorrow if I'm wrong.

I didn't mention Kim because I don't think she's well enough to play. I don't think she'd be a factor if she plays, given her recent injury.
