Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

This is her road, at it's toughest:

Zakopalova
Pin
Garrigues
Hingis
Hantuchova
Petrova

That would get her to the Semi's !

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

well if you saw her match against golovin at toronto you would know that even zakopalova has a decent chance against her if she plays like that

*Hantuchova*Cibulkova*Radwanska*Pennetta*Giorgi*

*Stephens*Hampton*Riske*Dulgheru*

*Anyone playing Wickmayer*

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

It seems a bit unfair that she has to win 6 matches to reach the semis, and everyone else has to win 5.

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

Do you really count Zakopalova, Pin, and Garrigues (on hard court) as "matches" ??
More like, going thru the motions !!

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

It's a cakewalk to the 4th round, and assuming she can beat Hingis (which is a fairly straightforward assumption given recent form, but not a given), then she could have a solid quarters opponent in one of Petrova, Hantuchova, Kirilenko, Krajicek or Srebotnik.

But just looking again, Azarenka & Cibulkova could be dangerous floaties.

I really hope she improves her Toronto form and makes the best of her draw

Rest in Peace Bally!

Add Szavay to that list, too. She's really comin' on lately.

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

I'm thinking that Nadia has a great shot at this SF.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

Sveta can be such a headcase though, she may self-destruct against someone like garrigues if she was playing as erratically as in Toronto. However if she's at somewhere near her best level, quarter-finals at least.

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

I think she's looking at this draw right now and her mouth is watering.
She, unlike Daniela, will not let this draw slip her by and she'll make the most of it.

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

Sharapova has it even easier.

Yet again the draw is SO top-heavy it is beyond belief.

All the favourites for the title who COULD'VE been in the top half are there. Totally pathetic.

I know just--just what you are--ah-ah.


I like the way that you taste, when you're all up in my face.

Re: Jeez ! Pencil Svetlana in for a Semi Final !

Sharapova is already in the final... Maybe Sveta or Petrova could give her some trouble in SF
