OMG!!!!! Jon Worthless will be a part of USA coverage :dead:

He is on TV right now and predicted that 2007 Women's draw (top heavy) will make officials to change the way they do it.

He's always a part of USA coverage. Fortunately, they tend to limit him to one or two interviews a day.

They need to do something different. I have to say that I am dissapointed with the way the draw came out!

Re: OMG!!!!! Jon Worthless will be a part of USA coverage :dead:

The traditional (in other sports) seeding system would have produced.

1-Justine
8-Serena

5-Ivanovic
4-Kuznetsova

3-Jankovic
6-Petrova

7-Chakvetadze
2-Sharapova

Almost equally top-heavy IMO...basically swapping Jankovic for Kuznetsova.

Well, hopefully the Williams sisters will play more and get their ranking up, then this won't happen anymore

Other than making the draw itself a lot less interesting, this system has a terrible flaw in that players might start speculating in their ranking to get the desired quarterfinal opponent.

Great point. I don't think it's a good idea. I actually like things the way they are. Unbalanced draws happen, and they would still happen with the other system.

Re: OMG!!!!! Jon Worthless will be a part of USA coverage :dead:

Tennis draws are rigged. They need to start investigating this fact.

I'm laughing now at Scoville Jenkins playing Fed X.

ALL slams put their rising talents against a champion. LMAO at people who think all is fair in love and tennis.

The draw is OBVIOUSLY STACK for MARIA. The BETTER Players will have to knock each other out before they can face Maria. THE BETTER players also have beaten Masha this year. LOL

Re: OMG!!!!! Jon Worthless will be a part of USA coverage :dead:

How do they "fix" the draw in your opinion? What method of cheating?

Honestly curious. So many people are convinced they fix the draws, but I've never heard anyone say how.

It's because draws aren't fixed.

And there aren't that many people convinced they are fixed. Just a very loud and delusional little group.

Something like that. The top ten rankings haven't reflected who the top ten tennis players are going into a slam event.

"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. "
