If Maria wins R128, she has the easiest quadrant of like...anyone EVER!
If Maria gets passed Eleni Daniilidou, she will have the easiest quandrant in a draw the last couple of years in women's tennis, at least.
No.28 Flavia Petter, No.21 Dinara Safina, No.14 Alicia Molik, No.22 Silvia Farina Elia, and No.5 Svetlana Kuznetsova are all in her quarter and all lost today, leaving only two seeded players other than Sharapova: No.9 Nadia Petrova and No.26 Nicole Vaidisova.
Before the Quarterfinals take place, Maria will play one of these players- No.42 Sania Mirza, No.81 Maria Elena Camerin, No.87 Julia Schruff, No.64 Lisa Raymond, and No.48 Dally Randriantefy.
I can't remember someone who was so lucky in a draw...
