Red face Bottom Half Deteriorated To Nicole & 7 Dwarves. Now Only 8 Dwarves :help:

the top half has all the players that should be in the R16 there (Bammer replaced Dementieva) ... dream matchups for the whole rest of the tournament (Venus v Ana, winner v Jelena, Serena v Juju, mouthwatering SF)

we are all excited to see new names and faces breaking through but from a sponsor or TV network's perspective, the bottom half is just Devilova and the 7 Eastern European Dwarves (no offense to Dwarves) ... nobody in the USA knows who any of these players are yet there will be two night sessions featuring these players (Tuesday night R16 and Thursday night QF) ... I bet all the TV executives are hoping that Devilova somehow pulls through so they can hype her from now on and make her the new Sharapova, put her on every night session they can

Nicole
Julia - Dopey (she got doped by a Christian)
Agnes - Doc
Igor - Grumpy
Vika - Bashful
Anna - Sneezy (she is always teary eyed)
Tamira - Sleepy
Aga - Happy

Re: Bottom Half Deteriorated To Nicole & The 7 Dwarves For Sponsors, US TV :help:

Yea pathetic, rest of the bottom half looks like a Tier 2/3 field. The top half should be all quarterfinal matches lol

Serena # 1

Nicole's not even in the fourth round yet. She could lose to Peer.

I hope that doesn't happen

Re: Bottom Half Deteriorated To Nicole & The 7 Dwarves For Sponsors, US TV :help:

While I am happy for some of these upsets, the bottom half IS pathetic. One of the Williams and Serbians should have been in the bottom half. Venus vs. Ivanovic deserves more than a R4!

Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Jelena Jankovic

Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Marat Safin

Re: Bottom Half Deteriorated To Nicole & The 7 Dwarves For Sponsors, US TV :help:

this must be the worst draw on a GS in a very very long time, all the players that were in a good form and are real contenders for the tittle were placed in the same part. with this kind of draw Maria sharapaova should have breezed trough to the final...

no
if one of them were there and advanced to the QF, SF or F, most of the Asian population in the USA and Asia would watch as history is being made ... Perfect exposure for sponsors leading to the Beijing Olympics ... and a Chinese (or American or anyone else) would offer a contrast from the entirely eastern European field

Am I the only one who likes it? Good chance for a new face to break through at a Slam.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

If it's "powder-puff" baseliners your after Pierce - I'm afraid none of your girls made it past the first round.

Re: Bottom Half Deteriorated To Nicole & The 7 Dwarves For Sponsors, US TV :help:

ok stop with this! the bottom half is not what everyone expected but the players there have played the better tennis when they needed to! as for so many of the main 'contenders' bein in the top half, well blame the rankings being the way the are! oh and also the part time sisters sorry william sisters! there not ranked where they should be because they dont compete enough, so this could happen in alot of slams in the future!

FYI Hungary and a few other countries are in fact CENTRAL-Europe...But of course if you divide it to west-east then they all are eastern..

Re: Bottom Half Deteriorated To Nicole & The 7 Dwarves For Sponsors, US TV :help:

This tournament is AWESOME! So much young talent breaking through in the bottom half of the draw! This is definitely the best case scenario of what could have happened: Maria screaming her way to the finals. Now she will be off my TV and we can all kick back, relax, and have a good time!

reality check

nobody cares about Sveta

as defending champ in 2005, she played her first match on Armstrong (was upset by Bychkova)

she walked through the grounds and nobody recognized her
