Re: Unluckiest players in draws

In her last 5 Main Draw direct acceptance appearances at grand slams Aiko Nakamura drew a seed in the opening round.

2007 US Open: (5)Ana Ivanovic
2008 Aus Open: (1)Justine Henin
2008 French Open: (4)Svetlana Kuznetsova
2008 Wimbledon: (13)Vera Zvonareva
2008 US Open: (29)Sybille Bammer

Albeit Bammer is not in the same league, it's still a pretty bad set of draws. She only one set in these times, against Vera Z. at Wimbledon.

Re: Unluckiest players in draws

This tournament I would say Zvonareva, because as defending finalist and #2 seed, she has probably Venus in round of 16.
And Li also. She has Lisicki in round 2.

But it all evens out over time.

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

I think Li has never been lucky with the draws but she obviously finally started to deal with them.
Hantuchova has been quite unlucky, too.

Yeah, someone nasty must have rigged the draw by not pairing Caroline against a local wildcard or qualifier in each round.

This Wozniacki whining is groundless as she faced unseeded players in QF and SF en route to her only GS final and a whole bunch of Taiwan players and slumping Sharapova the year after.

But her Wimbledon draws are ..
and she has lost to:
2000 - R1 Tanasugarn
2001 - R1 Dokic (16)
2002 - R2 Seles (4)
2003 - R1 Clijsters (2)
2008 - R1 Ivanovic (1)
2009 - R2 Safina (2)
2010 - R1 V.Williams (2)

7 such draws in whole 9 participations

She must be theCursedWimbledonGOAT !
