2009 grass event winners are out in 1R of Wimbledon

I noticed one fact:

3/4 of 2009 grass event winners are out in 1R

Shahar Peer def Maria Elena Camerin [Nottingham champion] 6:2 7:6(3)
Roberta Vinci def Magdalena Rybarikova [Birmingham champion] 6:3 6:3
Arantxa Parra Santonja def Tamarine Tanasugarn [s'Hertogenbosch champion] 6:4 6:4

also s'Hertogenbosch's runner-up is out:

Elena Vesnina def Yanina Wickmayer 6:1 6:1

Does it mean that caro Wozniacki is out tomorrow?

2009 grass event winners are out in 1R of Wimbledon

It's been a disappointing day for players who did well in the earlier warm-up events, let's take a look:

50K Nottingham F: (3)Maria Elena Camerin def. (4)Stefanie Vogele 6-2, 4-6, 6-1

Wimby 1R: Shahar Peer def. Maria Elena Camerin 6-2, 7-6(3)
Wimby 1R: Stefanie Vogele vs. (3)Venus Williams

Birmingham F: (13)Magdalena Rybarikova def. (3)Na Li 6-0, 7-6(2)

Wimby 1R: Roberta Vinci def. Magdalena Rybarikova 6-3, 6-2
Wimby 1R: (19)Na Li vs. Galina Voskoboeva

Eastbourne F: (6)Caroline Wozniacki def. Virgine Razzano 7-6(5), 7-5

Wimby 1R: (9)Caroline Wozniacki vs. (WC)Kimiko Date-Krumm
Wimby 1R: Virginie Razzano def. Tamira Paszek 6-0, 3-1 ret.

s'Hertogenbosch F: Tamarine Tanasugarn def. (WC)Yanina Wickamayer 6-3, 7-5

Wimby 1R: Aranxta Parra-Santonja def. Tamarine Tanasugarn 6-4, 6-4
Wimby 1R: Elena Vesnina def. Yanina Wickamayer 6-1, 6-1


They went 1-4 today

I expect wins out of Caroline and Na tomorrow, and Stef to go down to bring the total to 3-5 . Not great anyway. All these matches aside from Stefanie's and perhaps Maria Elena's I think many expected 1R wins.

Re: 2009 grass event winners are out in 1R of Wimbledon

This is why using a grass formula is dumb for seeding.

2016 saviors of the WTA

ANGELIQUE KERBER 63 75 DOMINIKA CIBULKOVA 60 60
LOUISA CHIRICO 60 60 IRINA-CAMELIA BEGU 63 62 KARIN KNAPP 63 67 60

Re: 2009 grass event winners are out in 1R of Wimbledon

Remember 2004? Sharapova won - but Pierce (she won s'Hertogenbosch) and Kuznetsova (Eastbourne) both lost their 1st rounders.

ugh.

All in straights sets too. (MEC nearly got one but 5-1 lead is nothing for Shahar )

This is why the elite players usually don't play the week before a slam.

Re: 2009 grass event winners are out in 1R of Wimbledon

Vale, pero acaso son grandes jugadoras para esperar que ganen, aún habiendo ganado torneos???

La verdad que el único partido que veía claro, era el de Tammy a Arantxa, los otros dos me decantaba más por victorias de Vinci y Peer, que Rybarikova y Wickmayer ahora mismo no son nada del otro jueves

Re: 2009 grass event winners are out in 1R of Wimbledon

Very noticeable. Also surprising was the defeat of Alexandra Wozniak, who stormed into the Eastbourne semis to Schiavone.

I think that those three players just aren't capable at the moment of playing well week on week and the form was just not there this week.

Re: Grass Court Tune-Up Winners, OUT :(

What's shocking to me is that last year, Tammy played Surbiton, Birmingham, AND s'Hertogenbosch where she went through qualifying and won the tournament, only to turn it around to the QF ! It's hugely surprising and disappointing. She looked healthier this year, as last year she retired from a match at birmingham.

The curse of s'Hertogenbosch strikes again! The champions of 2004, 2005, 2006 and now 2009 all lost in the first round at Wimbledon.

Last year Radwanska and Tanasugarn did well at Wimbledon.

Wimbledon 2009 warm-up Queens (Tanasugarn, Wozniak, Wickmayer, Rybarikova...)

Tanasugarn, Wozniak, Wickmayer and Rybarikova which has great results during grass/09 season won just one set (all-together) today on opening day in Wimbledon...

And people here still complain about massive tanking cases during short grass-court preparation season

It's all for reason...

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
