Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

we all know about the justine - serena quarters rematch. but there're several other likely match-ups that could be very interesting.

for instance:

1st round:

bartoli - flavia: i'll go with bartoli but she did not impress me today against justine.

aravane - perry: aravane

yaroslava - mirza: this is so unfair to be in the 1st round! i'll go with yari.

nadia - king: nadia just injured her back again. still, i'll go with her.

kuznetsova - vakulenko: kuznetosva but i'll keep an eye out for an upset.

elena - dechy: i'm picking dechy with the upset.

2nd round:

nadia - yari: nadia

tatiana - tamira: tantalizing. i'll go with tatiana.

3rd round:

lucie - jelena: incredible early encounter. i'll pick lucie to finally show her true colours and pull off the upset.

bammer - hingis: bammer

safina - v. williams: safina

4th round:

tatiana - kuznetsova: tatiana

here are my picks for the quarters onward:

quarters:

justine - s. williams; lucie - anna; nicole - ana; masha - tatiana.

semis:

justine - anna; masha - nicole.

final:

masha - justine.

as for the champion, all i can say is, i still haven't given up on masha.

pwayne and the rest, i'd love to get your thoughts.

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

Rgarros,
This is a very interesting draw indeed but I will give you my thoughts in this thread later today. Got to analyze the draw and come up with my contenders and floaters list.
But, I will say this - Jankovic has the toughest quarter while Sharapova and Mauresmo have decent quarters to navigate through.

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

pwayne, agree with you but i think the easiest quarter belongs to nicole and ana. they don't face anybody until they meet in the quarters.

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

The most exciting fourth round matchup is hands down Venus vs. Maria

I disagree with the predictions though. I want a Serena vs. Venus final. But I think we'll be seeing a Serena vs. Ivanovic/Mauresmo final.

The Williams Sisters

It's great to be a fan of the two most talented women in tennis.

Only IDIOTS count out the Williams sisters!!!
Serena: 13 Slams, ranked: #1
Venus: 7 Slams, ranked: #2

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

trufanjay, it's exciting if it happens. i don't think venus will get there, though. safina's looking good and venus might still be injured.

Really? She's playing a tier 3 semi, where she hasn't had to play that well to get there. She is losing to Jankovic, hardly a grass court queen, and she went three sets against Pin on grass and Krajicek. She isn't playing any better than Venus atm, and other than Charleston, she had a shitty clay season.

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

hey, i'm not a huge fan of safina either. i just think she has the edge right now, ironically, for some of the reasons that you mentioned. by the way, what's the latest on venus's injury?

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

Methinks it will be Justine/Serena vs. Maria/Amelie/Venus. Really not sure which though, but these have to be the five main contenders.

So a three final WImbledon Champ, five-time finalist, doesn't have the edge when they are playing at the same level atm? That doesn't make sense to me.

Venus' injury is fine methinks. She wouldn't have signed up for doubles if her knee was still killing her. I think that the sliding brought that stress on the knee. The grass will be fine on the knee.

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

1r: Sharapova v Chan . Really interesting 1r match...

1r: Golovin v Hsieh . Su-Wei, a player to watch...

1r: Garbin v Yan . I think Zi will win this one

1r: V.Williams v Kudryavtseva

2r: V.Williams v S.Peng . Tough first rounds for Venus... I think Alla and especially Shuai, can pull off the upset...

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

I think Kudryavtseva vs Venus will be a good match I wouldn't be totally surprised if Alla defeated Venus, it just depends how Venus is playing on the day.

Also maybe an upset with Morita vs Santangelo

Re: Potential Exciting Wimbledon Match-ups

With Alla's forehand and serve, Venus should beat her in straights. And Peng hasn't done anything lately.
