Finally Sveta gets a tough draw!

Svetlana´s draws were just ridiculous for a long time now, but this time she´s set to face Sharapova in the QF and also Li Na or Safarova in the 2R! But Maria had some troubles with Sveta, particularly in that Miami 2006 final... I want to see what will happen if Sveta manages to reach the quarters...

Re: Finally Sveta gets a tough draw!

That is a 'tough draw'? Come on, she ranks highest in the bottom half !!!

And I can't believe you include Safarova as a threat to Sveta.

Call it a tough draw if it's Justine's way to USO final last year or Maria's AO this year.

p.s. The Miami match was way long time ago and everything's going to be different.

Both players are not the same. For comparison sake, maybe u should refer to YEC.

Re: Finally Sveta gets a tough draw!

When you perform at a high level and can keep healthy while your competitors can't stay fit, more credit to you. It's not just about tennis. It's about playing the whole year -- which Sveta can do and others can't. When you're # 2 in the world, you should get easier draws than people ranked below you.

Re: Finally Sveta gets a tough draw!

Clearly there is a conspiracy and coverup, within the WTA, masterminded by Larry Scott to give Sveta easy draws all the time

Yeah, Maria is really going to lose to the girl who has lost to Fedak, Makarova, Sugiyama and Kleybanova this year alone.

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