Re: Who has the toughest USO draw?

Who has the toughest US Open draw? In my opinion, it's a 128-way tie.

"He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the Lord." -- Proverbs 18:22

"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." -- Herb Brooks

"A man who views the world the same at 50 as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life." -- Muhammad Ali

Other than possibility of playing Kvitova, Sharapova has a cupcake draw. I am hoping for a surprise Voskoboeva style loss.

Venus's draw is fairly easy after Lisicki (9-2 H2H against Bepa, Domi is injured). Maria's draw is a cakewalk -- she six walking byes in her section, and won't face a tough opponent until Kvitty/Aga in the QF.

Tsvetana Pironkova • Sabine Lisicki • Maria Sharapova
Christina McHale • Zheng Jie • Maria Kirilenko
Laura Robson • Petra Kvitova • Dominika Cibulkova

Well actually I was referring to the "shot at winning a title" thingy and I think Venus is more of a contender than Lisicki. Not to mention the greats like Petkovic or Ivanovic

Or maybe I should have used a font size 7 to make it clear? XD

Lisicki will be favored in their match, though, assuming she wins Dallas or plays okay in the final. Anyway, Venus fans can't complain about their draw because THERE'S NO PIRONKOVA! Not until the semis, anyway.

Tsvetana Pironkova • Sabine Lisicki • Maria Sharapova
Christina McHale • Zheng Jie • Maria Kirilenko
Laura Robson • Petra Kvitova • Dominika Cibulkova

Is there a better site for searching H2H?
