Possible 1st round upsets

Here are some possible 1st round upsets. Any more?

Linetskaya d. [25] Kirilenko (not necessisarily an upset, but a losing seed!)
Raymond d. [18] Likhovtseva (Lisa is always a threat )
Li d. [13] S.Williams (Serena hasn’t played in a while, Na Li is always tough… (I may be dreaming, lol))
Schruff d. [9] Dementieva (Julia can be really tough…)
Craybas d. [23] Jankovic (Jill has always proven to be a good player, Jelena is kinda struggling lately…)
Bychkova d. [29] Koukalova (Klara is only the 29 seed, Bychkova beat Svetlana…)
Hingis d. [30] Zvonareva (it’s Martina Hingis!)
Perry d. [21] Ivanovic (although Ana is tough, she has been struggling a little… Shenay has the potential to pull of this upset if she plays well!)
Frazier d. [27] Bartoli (Amy can always pull of a shocker )

I used to list my favorite tennis players here...
...then they all retired.
I used to keep track of my rankings in fantasy games here...
...then I realized how much I suck.
I used to update this signature, once in a while...
...then I realized no one actually reads it.

me too, but i think Na will give her a little struggle. However, serena will find away to get past even if she isn't playing her best, she always does

I don't think Perry will get past Ivanovic. Ivanovic has some great form making the Sydney SF and beat Mauresmo (last years YEC champion).

I would add Dechy to the list, she faces Zi Yan. Dechy is apparently injured and the Chinese have been hard at it practicing and have pressure on them.

You're kidding right? Ana lost only twice this year to Sveta and she beat Momo in Sydney...I don't really see the struggling part you're talking about...

No.

If Hingis doesn't win her first round, I'll be upset...

There is nothing more beautiful than Evonne Goolagong in full flight moving across a tennis court.
