I had no doubt about that after her AO match against Masha. Masha was playing superbly at the time, and Pebbles put up a really brave fight.

That first round loss at Vegas scared me a bit, though.

This was a really bad draw, but anything is possible. California girl Davenport will be motivated, I suppose, but motivation was never her strong suit. If Pebbles can hold her own and not be blown off the court, maybe she can drag it on for long enough for Davenport to run out of gas.

Zi was playing so well and now losing routinely to average players...she needs to get her confidence bac k as well as Jie...not a good season for the Chinese except for Na...

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!

Zi seems pretty "average" to me. Good win Ashley!

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

She's above average but I wasn't really referring to her loss to Ashley, only because she lost again...earlier this year she had been losing to not so good players, after winning a title at the end of last year...Ashley is solid and I like her!

Go Ai, Venus, Na, Tamarine!
