Draw Analysis

1. Ugh Venus and Maria are in the same half again. They should really just be seeded 1 and 2 IMHO, but whatever.

2. Amelie vs. Venus is just cruel. Amelie and Justine are the two potential spoilers this year, and the draw gods couldn't even have the courtesy of putting them both on one half.

3. Why is one section of the draw invariably stronger than the other every year?

4. Martina Hingis got a gift. It would shock me if she didn't make the quarters, and she has a legitimate shot of beating Justine on grass.

5. Nicole Vaidisova has a legitimate shot at making another semi-final. It will be interesting to see how she lives up to the hype and to see if she can keep up her form, but I think she should beat Sveta and Kim on grass, based on what I saw at Roland Garros (where she should have beaten Sveta anyway.)

6. Maria got screwed with her draw. Yes this sounds odd because her draw is like...perfect right? Well, she's not going to have any tough matches, and does not get an opportunity to level her H2H with Sveta, which I would have liked. Also, if she does make a semi against Venus, she will lose almost certainly IMHO because of that lack of competition.

7. I am really excited!

Well.. in RG the toughest side of draw was in the Henin, Kim, Petrova and Martina section.. all big candidates..

And the other section was so relaxed.. so.. is fair the change.. this time the potencial are in the same Momo, Maria, Venus.. and just Kim is in the other side.. so..

Top quarter of the draw is insanely unbalanced.

My predictions:

QF:
Mauresmo v. Williams
Sharapova v. Dechy
Hingis v. Henin-Hardenne
Kuznetsova v. Clijsters

SF:
Williams v. Sharapova - de facto final
Hingis v. Kuznetsova

F:
Williams d. Kuznetsova

Interesting matchups:

1R:


Krajicek/Stosur
Myskina/Black
Danilidou/Peng
Dementieva/Mirza
Goenefeld/Pironkova - mildly
Zeng/Benesova
Clijsters/Zvonereva

2R:

Peer/Danilidou
Shiavone/Perry
Loit/Dechy - mildly
Dementieva/Shaughnessy
Hantuchova/Jackson
Vesina/Chakvetadze
Tu/Li - mildly
Tanasugarn/Kirilenko

3R

Mauresmo/Golovin
Ivanovic/Safina
Schiavone/Dechy
Jackson/Molik
Sprem/Vaidosova - If there is a god...this match will happen!

4R:

Sharapova/Peer - has potential
Dechy/Dementieva
Schnyder/Hingis
Kuznetsova/Vaidisova
Groenefeld/Clijsters

QF:

Mauresmo/Williams
Hingis/Henin-Hardenne
Kuznetsova/Clijsters

SF:

Williams/Sharapova

Hopefully K.C. and M.S. have early exits... It's too boring...

Ummm considering between them they have a whopping 0 wimbledon titles, and one final, I don't think they "deserve" anything on grass.

RIDE OR DIE! Down for Venus Williams



[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]


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

Hope LenaD beats Sharapova in the semi, that would be huge and she is due a good run at a tournament esp a slam and also vee getting through aswell

Grassonkova.

Kim and Justine are the most consistent player on tour
