Re: Has it ever happened??

It will happen when Serena wins on Saturday.

The irony is that Francesca beat 4 of the top 11 to win RG.

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.

The top 10 is playing shitty tennis, so it doesn't mean much

But of course, no one will call it a cakewalk draw because it's Serena.

Imagine the number of threads that will be made about this if it was Caro.

So long...

Re: Has it ever happened??

Li Na is ranked 9th. And even though Maria is in the teens, we all know she is clearly a top 5 opponent

You're pushing.... Maria has played better but she is not "top 5" yet.... anyways noones draw to the semi's was all that impressive.... Serena *IS* the number 1 seed so her draw is suppose to be easier, I'd say she had the 2nd toughest matches and opponents getting to the semis (vera having the hardest road) even with Jelena retiring.

Re: Has it ever happened??

I think it happened a few times at the Australian Open and the French Open in the 70s, but too lazy to research it in depth at the moment

Re: Has it ever happened??

It looks like Serena will have another record then - that's if she wins.
That's because of the top 10 players, only Serena (#1seed) and Kim (#8seed) lived up to their seeding.
And Kim was not in Serena's quarter of the draw.

The top 10 players in Serena's side of the draw were #9 Radwanska (#7seed), and #4 Wozniacki (#3 seed).
Both didn't live up to their seeding.
