Some Interesting RG 1st Round Match Ups!!

1-Lindsay Davenport (E-U)-Katarina Srebotnik (Slo)

Srebotnik a decent clay court player, but I think Lindsay is too good here


Virginie Razzano (Fra)-25-Dinara Safina (Rus)

Can't believe one of them has to lose early.


Maria Elena Camerin (Ita)-31-Karolina Sprem (Cro)

Can K-Lina get out of her slump?


11-Venus Williams (E-U)-Marta Marrero (Esp)

Another Double Bagel? Or Marrero will surprise Venus this time?

27-Amy Frazier (E-U)-Meghann Shaughnessy (E-U)

Battle of Two US Veterans. I really want Amy to win

Maria Sanchez Lorenzo (Esp)-5-Anastasia Myskina (Rus)

PLEASE WIN ANASTASIA!! PRETTY PLEASE!!!


15-Jelena Jankovic (Scg)-Anna Smashnova (Isr)

Can Jankovic pass the Israel wall???


Conchita Martinez (Esp)-10-Justine Henin-Hardenne (Bel)

The most interesting match up!! I feel bad for the loser! They are both great champions! but I'm sure Justine will win in 2!

Evguénia Linetskaya (Rus)-2-Maria Sharapova (Rus)

Both don't like clay! but Maria has more eperience, but never count out Linetskaya, she play great in big tournaments this year!

Maju terus Tenis Indonesia!

i don't think martinez and henin is so great. justine is in good form. I hoped conchita would have drawn myskina or somebody like that, where she has a real chance on clay

i find smashnova/jankovic clash the most intresting clash.
they are both very fast and can return alot, obviously jelena can hit harder, but anna has her power-unleashing hits as well.
should be one of the best 1rd matches in a long time.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Sharapova should definitely not underestimate Linetskaya. On any other surface, Maria would easily dominate IMO, but she's still learning the clay court game & if she begins to make numerous errors, she could be the victim of a 1R upset.

I agree with the others about Jankovic/Smashnova is the most interesting match of all!

I can't believe the 2 players I really wanted to see (Martinez and Srebotnik) had to draw the 2 players I expected to reach the the finals, and I can't believe , having no access to Chatrier nor Lenglen courts, that I probably won't see them finally
Thi sdraw sucks , I can't be this unlucky, what have I done to deserve such awful 1st round match-ups ?
Its a real nightmare for me

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Kimiko DK - Eleni Daniilidou ...
