First rounders-who got the best and worst deal?

I figure I might as well give some love to the first round matches. As usual, some seeds/unseeds got lucky, others didn't. For the seeds, who has a relatively easy first round opponent (on paper)? For the seeds, who has a potentially tough test? For the unseeds, who has a pretty good shot at an upset?


Here they are:

(1) Ivanovic vs. De los rios

(30) Cibulkova vs. Zheng

(20) Schiavone vs. Paszek

(15) Szavay vs. Garbin

(12) Schnyder vs. Dellacqua

(18) Vaidisova vs. Ondraskova

(27) Razzano vs. Rodina

(8) Chakvetadze vs. Dubois

(4) Kuznetsova vs. Johansson

(28) Bondarenko vs. South

(17) Cornet vs. Pavlyuchenkova

(14) Radwanska vs. Benesova

(11) Bartoli vs. Lisicki

(19) Kirilenko vs. Dushevina

(29) Mauresmo vs. Harkleroad

(6) Serena vs. Kanepi

(5) Dementieva vs. Camerin

(25) Davenport vs. Voracova

(24) Peer vs. O'Brien

(9) Safina vs. Chan

(16) Azarenka vs. Pironkova

(21) Petrova vs. Govortsova

(26) Bammer vs. Arvidsson

(3) Sharapova vs. Foretz

(7) Venus vs. Cavaday

(32) Mirza vs. Castano

(22) Pennetta vs. Vakulenko

(10) Hantuchova vs. Errani

(13) Zvonareva vs. Nakamura

(23) Srebotnik vs. Goerges

(31) Wozniacki vs. Hrdinova

(2) Jankovic vs. Savchuk

Re: First rounders-who got the best and worst deal?

Really easy are the matches for Davenport,Mirza,Jankovic
Wozniacki won't be troubled too much either
Best chances for an upset:
5.Pavlyuchenkova
4.Dubois (Plase don't make it happen!)
3.Arvidsson
2.Rodina
1.Dellacqua

Not sure:
Vakulenko or Errani

Rest in Peace Bally!

cibulkova got the worst

sania got the easiest

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: First rounders-who got the best and worst deal?

I don´t know if Franny or Tamira were more lucky with their 1st-Round-opponent


Tamira PASZEK
Na LI - Francesca SCHIAVONE - Roberta VINCI
Tamira's backhand, Roby's slice, Galina's dropshot

Re: First rounders-who got the best and worst deal?

Cibulkova, Schnyder, Cornet, Azarenka probably got the worst first round matches.

Best: Ivanovic, Mirza, Davenport, Sharapova. Some others too.

Jankovic got an easy R1, but that is it.

Nicole

Re: First rounders-who got the best and worst deal?

Zheng-Cibulkova- Hopefully match goes to completion
Schivoane-Paszek- If Tamara played up to her potential she'd be seeded and avoid this
Schnyder-Dellacqua- 2 people i picked to get to the 2nd week
Kuznetsova-Johansson- Of the top 8, this is the not the type of player the top seed wants to see early
Cornet-Anastasia P.- I have no clue who is going to win this. Either way Li Na waits.
Benesova- A. Radwanska- 2 more people i thought would get to the second week-i pick Benesova if it is a monday match
Mattek-Bremond- Severine got through qualies but Bethanie is hot right now
Mauresmo-Harkelroad-No way Mauresmo is 100%- chance for Ashley to improve her ranking
S. Williams-Kanepi-Serena should win, but will struggle with Kanepi as she plays like Molik
Azarenka-Pironkova- Pironkova can win a couple of rounds, Azarenka could get to the qtrs
Bammer-Arvidsson- Bammer has looked average as of late and Arvidsson gets a better draw than usual

Dont know enough about Kate O'Brien but taking current form she may have the most beatable seed(Peer).
