and I didn't even mention Sveta's Roland Garros run to the final where she didn't beat a Top 10 player

Sveta is becoming the new Nadia

yeah... davenport, shaui, na, mauresmo and bartoli. perfect examples of cakewalking in tierIIIs and IIs

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Classic pierce7376489326495

Sveta has faced and beaten Davenport, Hingis, Venus, Mauresmo, Sharapova, Dementieva and many others during her many 'cakewalk' draws this year, so some respect please

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

Tier 3 aren't supposed to offer the biggest competition & a win over Davenport is very decent. Bartoli beat the other top player censed to be the other finalist.

I'm sure you'll agree that Na is far from being a cakewalk and that in order to beat the number 1 player with that scoreline, there must be also something about playing good tennis.

to new beginnings.

I am just talking about the last 3 events
I mean cmon Takao as a R16 opponent in a SUPER TIER III?
Kostanic only plays 3 games in a TIER II?
Martina Muller as a R16 opponent in a SUPER TIER II?
injured Shuai Peng as a SF opponent in a TIER II?
bagel-prone Mauresmo as a F opponent in a TIER II?

these are cakewalks

It's like any sport, things even themselves out. My football team were probably due a penalty at the weekend but during the course of the season they'll get one they didn't deserve.

So unless you're suggesting the draw is fixed, you're always going to get easy draws at some tournaments and hard ones at others.

Always supporting Kim and Svetlana


Good luck Amelie and Justine

I think pierce7653567897675 is trying to raise his TWAT level and status, because he is afraid to lose to Justeenium in the TWAT semifinal. Good strategy

I'm really starting to understand why a certain poster is still left in a certain contest on this board.
Maybe if the top players would show up after the US Open like they're suppose to do, then her draws would not be as easy.
We just saw Alona win a Tier II and mostly because it was the weakest Tier II on paper this year.
Don't be a and put blame on one person, blame the WTA.

"Everybody always said I didn't get that job because my wife is white. If you're not strong enough to look through that then you have the issue."
-Charlie Strong, assistant head coach of the Florida Gators

Black presidents of the US=1
Black head coaches in the SEC=0
Something needs to change.
