I'm so sick to death of...

Kim's cakewalk draws. Every freaking slam! The only tests she's had early on in recent slams were Lindsay in the 4th round fo FO and WB. And even that was b/c she was ranked somewhere real low at the time.

I'm getting used to V/S having terrible draws due to their rankings, but god, KIM ALWAYS has it easy until at LEAST the semis.

Serena: Queen of the odd in OZ.

Venus: Please follow suit and win Wimbledon again.

Well she is the number two seed. What do you expect? I remember Venus and Serena having easy draws when they were at the top.

Clijsters never wins the slams with easy draws so you should be happy! She won't win it!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Isn´t Mauresmo usually the one who gets the easiest draw in slams? (not counting Ana I. second round of course...lol)

(they played in the third round at both RG and AO )

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

Kim's one slam doesn't point to a cakewalk providing much fruit.

Björk
Imperious in victory. Never conceiving the possibility of defeat. The greatest of her era. The self-belief, that smile, backhand, muscles, serve, personality, all larger than life. There's no greater sight in women's tennis than watching Serena J. Williams go to work.
The others are Great, but Serena's the Greatest

I understand your frustration, the top half sure is crowded with talent. It's not Kim's fault though. The draw was done live in front of the cameras so I doubt there's any rigging going on.

Mauresmo is the one with cakewalk draws.

Lindsay is the one with hard draws.

Some of these draws aren't as bad as they look. And it's quite possible that some of the players drop out before they meet other top players. Room is always made in the draw in almost every slam for a surprise quarterfinalist or something. I'm just hoping Venus isn't the casuality.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams

I GOT 5 ON IT!!!!! VENUS WILLIAMS 5 TIME WIMBLEDON CHAMPION!!!!!
