Name your Wimbledon Dark-Horse!

So who are the members of the Dark-Horse Nation @ SW-19?

Please be reminded that in this thread's definition of Dark-Horse are those players that have not made the cut of the Top-16 Seeds. Players who are not seeded to be in the 2nd week of Wimbledon.


I guess with the good birmingham performance, we can name Jam-jam member of the DH nation.

for me:

Jamea Jackson
Vera Zvonareva
Misa Krajicek
Anna C.

Justine Henin - Unfinished Business "Wimbledon"


Sesil "the thunder" Karatantcheva
Vaidisova-Azarenka-Pavlyuchenkova-A&U Radwanska-Wozniacki-Cornet

Jackson for sure.. nebody who can beat Sharapova on grass, regardless of how she played has the potential to be dangerous.

Molik- never underestimate a talented player who can volley & has a big serve.

Sam Stosur- *see Molik*

Sprem-her go for broke style can take her far or send her home in the 1R, really a tossup. if she's on, she can beat anyone though...

Azarenka & Radwanska- both talented young players who are capable of a surprise..

Karolina Sprem and Vera Zvonareva. Both are capable of handling a big stage. I think Jamea Jackson could have a good run, but I doubt she can go really far....yet.

2016 Titles:
Tennis Tipping: (S) ITF Toronto | (D) Dalian (w/ Nottheone), ITF Bendigo (w/ Randy)
Suicide: Strasbourg, Tashkent, Hong Kong
