Re: Totally unfair

While I agree with the premise of your post, I don't think your list of "shockers" are any less likely to win than your "tough players." Sugiyama or Zvonereva much less likely to win than Schnyder, Chakvetadze or Dani. Your argument would be better with two categories.

Re: Totally unfair

It is crazy that the top half is sooo loaded and the bottom half a joke (with no ofense). But in comparison there are two different tournaments.

I am sooooooo disgusted with this draw!

Re: Totally unfair

2 of the last 3 winners are in the bottom half. The other recent winner is retired.

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

Me thinks Anna and Martina should be swapped

"Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated" - George Bernard Shaw




"And for the best of the teen-agers who followed her, and who occasionally referred to her as over the hill, Graf had a ready answer: against top-ranked Martina Hingis, Graf wound up 7-2. Graf's stirring 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 throttling of Hingis at the French Open final this June was perhaps the most emphatic parting shot the game has ever seen. "

And?? It's not like Kuzzy is a top 5 contender or anything. I could easily say that 5 of the last 6 slam finalists are in teh top half. And the previous winners other than Kuzzy and Sharapova are all in the top half.. unless you want to go back to 1997.

The bottom half is much worse, but you have to accept that this is the way things work at the moment.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Totally unfair

The "shockers" of the bottom half are as good as the "tought" players from the upper half.

And it's the 1000000000000000000000000th thread about it.

Re: Totally unfair

Get over it! The draw is the draw, totally random.
Yeah the top half is loaded.. So what? This happens.

Draw is based on seeding and therefore ranking. It's not the fault if certain players really should be ranked higher.
