anybody else like vakulenko's chances against sveta?

just having a look at the wimby 1strd matches, i don;t reckon sveta would be too happy to be playing vakulenko 1strd! i saw her play in melb park in jan,she is so talented and can't have missefd out on a seeding for wimby by much, i like julia's chances of an upst here! i hope it's shown on aussie wimby coverage.

Re: anybody else like vakulenko's chances against sveta?

Fitness will be very important in this match I think. It could come down to who's body is in better shape. I spoke to Julia briefly at Roehampton and asked if her ankle would be okay for Wimbledon and she seem confident it would be so that is good. Obviously I would like Julia to win but it will be a tough match for both of course.

If Julia is healthy, I agree, she could give Sveta a lot of trouble.

Common, Julia! I believe in you!

If she will show the game that she showed on clay this year, she win!

and if Vakulenko shows the game she showed at RG, then Kuzy wins 6-0 6-0

Julia has a good game for grass and could give Sveta some trouble.
I don't think she will cause an upset, but there is a chance.

HeHe, so true.....................

I think with her serve and her athleticism, her power, her court mobility, I just think when she’s on, she’s the greatest player we’ve ever seen, ever. Now, whether her record is the greatest remains to be seen because she hasn’t retired yet. But I think she is really the greatest player. I have seen Martina and Steffi at their best. There are little chinks in those players’ armor, but it was a different era, where you didn’t need to be the perfect player.

Re: anybody else like vakulenko's chances against sveta?

I think that Julia definitly had a great chance, but Svets is definitly the big favorite and she is my pic.
