What a great US Open draw.

Just got home from work and i so happy right now.

Justine and Serena in the same Quarter
Venus and Ana in the same Quarter
All four in the same half and Jankovic
Masha and Nicole in the same Quarter I have been waiting for ever.

It's just beautiful.

yeah off course you're happy. Any sharapova fan is dancing his/her heart out with those cakewalk draws. She's getting to the final She will end up getting at least 700 final points to secure her ranking. How nice.. She could end up #2 or #3 in the race after the usopen while doing absolutely NOTHING this year. Only her cakewalk draws are keeping her ranking up.

All-Time-Great
Justine Henin

Elena, thank you for all the joy you gave me, you will always remain in my mind.

I predict she loses to Vaidisova 4th round... that is if she makes it there...

Somewhat true, considering she's failed in the somewhat difficult draws she's had this year, i.e. Miami and Wimbledon

Re: What a great US Open draw.

I actually prefer unbalanced draws because it makes the first weekend less mind numbing. I appreciate seeing matches that rise to the level of a final or a semifinal in the 4R or QF.

a/ getting to the finals of 2 slams would constitute "doing absolutely NOTHING"?
b/ if the "cakewalk draws" () are keeping her ranking up then why is it that the extremely difficult Miami and Wimbledon draws are a big reason why she doesn't have *more* points than she already does?

Are you a raving mental case with awesome groundstrokes? I'll probably like you...
Hantuchova : Goerges : Johansson : Rybarikova : Li

Learning to love/Liking the look of...
Zakopalova : Lucic : Krajicek : Cetkovska : Cibulkova
Gajdosova : Govortsova : Olaru : Robson : Pliskova

Yes, with an unbalanced draw, there's always a good match going on that could have easily been played rounds later given the form of the two players playing it.

Re: What a great US Open draw.

Masha had a pretty tough draw.
Nicole
Patty
Anna. Poor Anna
Razzano
Rad(SP) chick
If she get past them she'll be alright.

This is what happen when you win the US Open series.
Next year they will know

Re: What a great US Open draw.

Ivanovic V Venus 4th Round should be good. 5 of the 6 real open contenders are in the top haf of the draw, whereas Sharapova is the only main contender in the bottom half.

exactly, she failed in the difficult draws and gets points because of the easy draws. She is better then most but when she ended up playing against 1 of the great and in-form players she loses. She lost to ivanovic(0-2), serena(0-2,)venus(1-1) and jankovic(0-1) Who all have had a better year then her but she could end up higher in the race then most of them because of some cakewalk draws.

Major points for sharapova:

San Diego No opposition for her.
French Open SF
Australian Open i give her credit for beating clijsters, that was a good win but

she owns Chackvetadze and somehow always seems to end up getting her in her draws. In all these draws this year where she got major points she has beaten Chackvetadze.

It's just incredible to think that she could actually hold the no.2 ranking untill the end of the year.

If she gets whooped again in the usopen final by serena,venus,justine,ana or jelena we will all know her ranking is this way because of her easy draws.

Clijsters was really not that great a win.. did you see that match? Kim was practically already pregnant it was clear she didnt want to be on the court and I for one was not shocked it was her last Grand slam......
