Wimbledon Draw.. fair and balanced both Men and Ladies..

I dont understand why the media is claiming Federer has been handed a tough draw because Hewitt and Djokovic are in his section. If form holds Hewitt meets Djoko, Hewitt cant beat Fed over 5 sets and Djoko hasnt made much of an impact at AETC.
Roddick still doesant ever finish the job against Fed so he cant be considered a REAL threat.

To me it seems wide open on both sides as a result of tons of injuries to more potential obstacles.
WIth good weather predicted I expect some fun encounters.
S & V are on opposite sides, The Belgians are gonna feed on themselves(meet each other), ELena is out.. Sveta is mentally out... so camp Williams should be salivating as they look to another finals appearance.

Doesn't look to fair to Nadal. He has the hardest draw of all the top seeds. On the women's side Venus side of the draw is weak, but the rest is balanced.

I do think on the mens side, it is unbalanced. Nadal got the shit end of the stick IMO. Fed really has an easy draw.

I think the womens side is a little more balanced. Though clearly some parts are weaker than others

Re: Wimbledon Draw.. fair and balanced both Men and Ladies..

Actually I like the draws on both ends.....it has the potential to have some really good matches if it progress the way it does. Long as my 2 girls are in the final is all im worried about...

Venus and Serena ....Often imitated NEVER duplicated!!!!!!!

Re: Wimbledon Draw.. fair and balanced both Men and Ladies..

How does Nadal have the worst draw?

For the women, i think the top and bottom quarter are about the same. The second quarter is incredibly weak and the 3rd is very tough.

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

So you mean you're so unbiased to call such a thing fair AND balanced. Typically egotistic american . Everyone knows it's not fair nor balanced that Kim and Justine are in the same quarter.
I hope with all my hart it won't be an all williams final, please God safe us from that!

Imagine if Na Li was in her quarter, it would be Tier V weak I guess.

Re: Wimbledon Draw.. fair and balanced both Men and Ladies..

Much more balanced than the French Open womens draw, but either way, only one player wins 7 matches. So just changes what round the other 127 lose in

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Wimbledon Draw.. fair and balanced both Men and Ladies..

Its pretty balanced I guess. Strongest quarter by far is Kim's, wowzers. Weakest based on title/slam #'s is Caro/Sam's, but I think thats a tougher Quarter than Venus' actually. Venus has no one to stop her from tearing through to the Semis.

Actually, this might be the best draw Serena and Venus have had in a long time. Serena has Maria, and thats it. Venus has...Makarova? She wont lose that at Wimbledon, no way. Definitely a Venus/Serena final, (unfortunately for my favorites).

I see Serena v. Vika and Venus v. Justine, then Serena v. Venus

Jelena Jankovic

Jumping over career opportunities since 2006...
