Chances of Venus doing a Schnyder in 4R??

I mean.., for years now...
the finalist in the Australian Open is the same finalist in the Wimbledon!!!

and we are in the same situation like in the FO...
where there is a great chance of an upset in the 4R..

Schnyder vs Sharapova
and
Williams vs Sharapova

once again... I think that it will be a very interesting match....

but hopefully...
I think that it is time for Venus to break that AO finalist= Wimbledon finalist
"tradition"
and win Wimbledon herself, playing Serena in the Finals...

Who says it's going to even happen?
Venus likely plays Safina in the third round and Safina as you can see from today's match is no hack on grass.

It's DINARA Safina not Jelena...

Anyways, if Venus gets by Safina, I think Sharapova will beat her.

Re: Chances of Venus doing a Schnyder in 4R??

The organizers must truly believe that Sharapova can get by this "declining" Venus Williams in the 4th round, or they wouldn't dare have their cupcake girl face Venus before the semis or finals.

*Venus*Serena*Kuznetsova*Schiavone*Taylor*Bartoli* *A.Bondarenko*Zheng*Duval*Safarova*Kirilenko*

*Federer*Nadal*Djokovic*Tsonga*Murray*Monfils*Gulb is*Young*Wawrinka*Mirnyi*

safina will choke against Venus.
Sharapova by far plays much better on clay than on grass. And Venus is yet to prove whether she's back in her top form in a consistent manner this year.

Maria has won Wimbledon (grass)...and dosn't play well on clay (being tall it's difficult to move)..

Keep Grunting Maria!

agree...
but Maria being taller than Dinara can move aswell as Dinara...
and tall people has greater reach...


but hasnt Venus already proven that
she's back consistently...
i mean...
all her loses,exect to the unbelievable Tati..
were are 3rd sets...
and all against top players...
isnt that consistency enought?

Kuzzie went on to beat Henin in Berlin.
Sharapova n Jankovic to the semis in FO...

winning maybe a different thing...
but hanging with them stroke by stroke is another...
and how the draw Gods open up the path for her...

Re: Chances of Venus doing a Schnyder in 4R??

Everyone is talking about Safina but the only person who I can see taking Venus out is Sharapova. I doubt Venus will lose that early. Venus will probably get out there and allow Safina to win a set, but I can still see her winning if she keeps her errors down. It's interesting that Venus and Dinara have never played.

Sharapova is the real test for Venus.

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
