Sam Stosur, huge serve.
Ana I huge serve.
CSN all court, and tricky player already beat Vee this year.

Will post Serena's obvious roadblocks later. I think Venus can overcome the roadblocks. What do u think?

Jankovic, last player to beat her on grass?

Ana I huge serve

And yes, she will.

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Yeah, I wonder why they didn't seed many players from out of the top50, so that they could place the highranked players more effectively in Vee's draw. Vee is more vulnerable in the early rounds most people say

Venus could be vulnerable to KBond or Stosur. KBond can be solid and might make Venus nervous considering Venus starts off slow. She's also made the 3rd round of each slam this year as an unseeded player.

I can't see anyone else challenging Vee before the quarters.

Venus quarter isn't that hard unless she's playing bad but even so she will overcome. Serena's however really packed. Either Williams not making it to the final will be shocking though.

she might play some ugly tennis in the first week, but once she reaches the QF, there's no stopping her.

Re: wimby threw Venus obvious roadblocks. do u feel that she will overcome?

What roadblocks? Venus appears to have the easiest draw of all the top seeds. The next highest ranked players in her quarter are Jankovic and Ivanovic, and the way the two of them have been playing lately there's a good chance that one or both them will lose before they even reach Venus. And even if she does have to play them, I can't imagine either of them actually beating her on grass. I could see Stosur's potentially being a little bit of challenge, but that's about it.

In any case, I'm rooting for Dokic to make it through that section, but I wouldn't put a lot of money on that happening

Dear God. Apparently, not only do the Williams Sisters have to be on opposite sides of the draw, but now their fans will not be happy unless they play the six lowest ranked players in the draw all the way up until the final. It's a grand slam. There are going to be challenging matches.

Re: wimby threw Venus obvious roadblocks. do u feel that she will overcome?

Breaking news:

I hear the powers-that-be have tampered with the Hawkeye to screw Venus over, and they've also bribed all the line judges and umpires to ensure that Venus gets bad calls every match she plays. Doubtlessly Venus will get a few matches on Court 18; insiders say they're scheming to put her on the practice courts, but the logistics for that have not been worked out. A Tonya Harding-styled attack is also on the cards (tentatively scheduled on the middle Sunday) In the event that Venus gets through all this crap and holds up the Rosewater Dish at the end of the two weeks, they've taken the precaution to drug Venus's drinks for the entire fortnight (a few ballboys have been paid to spike her drinks during play), just so that they can force her to relinquish the trophy.

OMG!!!11111 Let's start a Free Venus campaign!!!!111

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.
