Definitely not the bottom half. The third quarter particularly is looking easy for Kim. I know Shuai is playing well but she's not yet a big name, although she's getting there certainly. Bottom quarter looks tougher now that we've seen Kvitova's form but still not a brutal one when it has the likes of Benesova.

Top half in general is pretty tough and it depends really. Caro, Franny and Sveta make for a pretty tough quarter but so do Masha, Vika and Na... I'd say the tipping point is that Petkovic is better than Sevastova.

So 2nd, then 1st, then 4th and then 3rd.

Maria Sharapova
Agenlique Kerber - Victoria Azarenka - Nastya Pavyuchenkova
Yanina Wickmayer - Laura Robson - Johanna Konta - KiKi Mladenovic - Sabine Lisicki
Ana Konjuh - Aga Radwanska - Julia Goerges - Kimiko Date Krumm - Lucie Safarova -

Definitely the first or second. I give the edge to the first, but barely.

Definitely second one - all players are very tough to beat here and Maria, Vika and Na are trump any other combination

2 > 1 > 4 > 3

The first and fourth quarters are pretty close though...

Bottom half of the draw is almost a joke. But at least it's not as bad as recent slams.

2nd quarter is by far the toughest. Azarenka/Li is the only match-up where the two players are still going according to their seeding.

Re: Toughest Quarter At AO 2011 (Revote At R16)

The Vera quarter was tougher earlier, but Sam/Petra played already. Same as top quarter, Justine/Sveta played.
I think they are all fairly even. Makarova & Kvitova are good. They're still young & inconsistent, but they are going to be very good.

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

Somehow Maria always have to end up in the toughest quarter, always.

Re: Toughest Quarter At AO 2011 (Revote At R16)

After Justine lost, I thought Caro's quarter was the easiest...
Now it looks so much better than the mess that is the bottom half.

some signature

Maybe but it's better to be in a tough quarter rather than to lose early.

it is because it used to be called Venus's quarter but then Andrea took her place
