Are you happy with the draw?

Im very mixed. Marion has Wozniak thrid round (WHY?) then Vera. Though Vera has been injured so unlikely she'll make 4th? But other side of that looks very weak. Winner there might be semi-finalist.

EDIT: Damn, shuldve wrote them better. 4th one is for people happy about the fact, might sound other way around.

Re: Are you happy with the draw?

I am happy about the fact that Venus and Serena are on the opposite sides and Roger has an easy draw.

Re: Are you happy with the draw?

It would be better if Sharapova/Azarenka/Serena weren't all in the same section but it is probably as good as it can be.

The first and third quarters will be hot messes.

Williams Sister final and Roger's draw make me happy though.

Söderling in the 4R is not an easy draw.

Federer has recently defeated Soderling in straights on his worst surface, so I guess people will assume it's an easy match-up?

Re: Are you happy with the draw?

Mauresmo losing to Dinara early
Kimiko getting Caro
Stosur-Dokic second round match and both being in Venus' section
Vera getting Virgine and Marion, tough players.
Sharapova and Serena is same quarter.

Horrible draw, hate it. No good first round matches really, a lot of the top seeds will probably lose and we will have to sit through another boring Williams final.

Re: Are you happy with the draw?

Not happy at all. The two players I'm going to follow Sam and Jelena D have winnable first round matches so they can play each other. The computer really wants me to sleep early by the end of the first week. Darn draws being done by evil computers.

Soderling is better on grass too though. Then in the quarters he has Tsonga.

Re: Are you happy with the draw?

My only problem with it is the weakness of the third quarter. Really anyone can come through that. Brit Josh Goofa could even make the SF from that section...

Truth.
Plus there is a big difference between playing Fed in the 4R and playing him in your first GS final.

I agree but Jelena could have drawn a Williams in the first round being unseeded..

1r winnable
2r Jelena is better on grass than Sam (if shes fit and playing her A game)
3r Depends which Ana shows up.
4r Venus ...

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!
