The curse of the WTA blog

Strikes Venus down

Don't think any blogger has ever won the week they were blogging. The WTA will start finding it hard to find bloggers

Re: The curse of the WTA blog


On the other hand, the ATP blog often has players who won the tournament.

Re: The curse of the WTA blog

Forgot Srebotnik! 4 finalists in a row, and 4 losers. Well at least they are getting to the finals. I think previous ones never even got that far

Yep Chaky retired in the 2nd rd to Razzano when she was a blogger in Toronto. Granted she came in to the tournament feeling sick already. I think she had like only two entries.

4 losing finalist in a row! I'm really starting to believe this blogging jinx thing.

Re: The curse of the WTA blog

Yes, as curses go this one aint so bad. If you asked a lot of the players how they would feel about being the losing finalist at the start of the week I bet most of them would be quite happy with that.

Re: The curse of the WTA blog

The only player who has won the singles title the week they blogged was Clijsters in Hasselt 2006, and the curse of the blog ended her career! Huber won the doubles title in Paris this year when doing the blog. There have been 8 losing finalists and 7 losing semifinalists.
