Cool If you could wish for an ideal tournament, how would it go?

Not very clear with what I mean there, but here's how mine would be:

Wimbledon-

1st Round: Venus def. Jackson(6-3 6-2)
2nd Round: Venus def. Mirza(6-4 6-1)
3rd Round: Venus def. Ivanovic(7-5 6-4)
4th Round: Venus def. Dementieva(5-7 6-4 6-3)
Quarter Final: Venus def. Sharapova(7-6 7-6)
Semi Final: Venus def. Davenport(2-6 7-6 6-4)
Final: Venus def Henin Hardenne(6-3 6-7 13-11)

Basically, there are two ways you can look at it. Players that you don't really like much or that are in need of some revenge . Or the way I've looked at- players that I really like and wouldn't nessacarily want to lose, but think will bring the best out in my favourite. That would be my ideal tournament. Not asking for much am I?

Does actual rankings and seedings matter? I'm assume that since its "ideal" tournament that rankings do not really matter.

Mine would be: U.S. Open

1st round: Sharapova def Kuznetsova 6-4, 3-6, 7-5
2nd round: Sharapova def Davenport 6-0, 6-0 (duh)
3rd round: Sharapova def Serena: 4-6, 7-6, 7-6 (saving 4 match points)
4th round: Sharapova def Venus 6-3, 6-3
Quarters: Sharapova def. Henin-Hardenne 7-6, 6-4
Semis: Sharapoav def. Mauresmo 6-1, 6-1
Finals: Sharapova def. Clijsters 2-6, 7-6, 6-4

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.

Well I was going to say that seedings should be taken into consideration, but never mind. You're tournament's really cool so either way, it doesn't matter.

Defeats 7 major winners, with a total 42 singles GS's between them.
