Pick of the first round: WWW - [7] Venus Williams vs. [WC] Naomi Cavaday

I know everyone will probably be thinking Venus virtually has a bye into round 2.

However, Venus can be vulnerable in the first round of grand slams, 7-5 in the third against Kudryavtseva demonstrates this point pretty well...

Cavaday is a very talented player, and she is british! Match points had against Hingis last year!

even though I love Vee, wouldn't it be amazing if a brit girl beat a Williams sister

Re: Pick of the first round: WWW - [7] Venus Williams vs. [WC] Naomi Cavaday

as uz, Venus should TOTALLY win this.
as uz, i don't know what to expect.

i'd take a patchy perf as long as she ups her level every day til the last one.

to new beginnings.

Sorry, Cavaday has been playing poorly since she got injured, I'm saying Venus will demolish her. 6-3 6-4 (that's a demolition for Venus as a 1st round match )

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

On Centre Court as defending champion? No chance.

Re: Pick of the first round: WWW - [7] Venus Williams vs. [WC] Naomi Cavaday

but Cavaday can play some superb tennis!...

this is the only match i've ever rooted against Vee


would be amazing if she played Keothavong R2 though, would give Anne the chance to stake her claim as a strong threat to the tour, which I believe she has the potential to be with all her sexiness

Re: Pick of the first round: WWW - [7] Venus Williams vs. [WC] Naomi Cavaday

Naomi's got no chance. Even if she was fit and in form it would still be a bad match up (and be on Centre Court where Venus is unlikely to lose). 2r is much more likely to be a banana skin for Venus.
