Still, the differences in the draw aren't big at all.
And i doubt that Hampton would've been so good against Serena or Masha that day. Azarenka let her play.
Although she played better than her ranking, yeah. But it's not like Aza and Serena had monster draws. Quite similiar.

Not to mention Sharapova gets Makarova again the quarters (who she will steamroll), while Azarenka will have either Kuznetsova or Wozniacki.
Sharapova had Venus in the 3R, Azarenka had Hampton whilst Serena had Morita. Venus is a tougher draw than Hampton/Morita

lol. Hampton would have pushed Serena or Sharapova. It would have been 2 close sets. Specially Sharapova who has been playing like Azarenka with a better serve lately. It was Hampton's consistency in the baseline that made her get so close, which non of Sharapova's or Serena's opponent have been. Though Morita was maybe half way there in consistency to hang in.

lol, don't be delusional did you actually watch the matches. I agree Serena had the easiest one in Morita, But Venus didn't play well until the final 4-5 games. Hampton played well in most of the match like she was a top tenner. In the end in difficulty Hampton >>>>>>>> Venus >>>>> Morita on those matches that is.

Re: You heard it here first: KatMak is going to upset Sharapova in the QF

I don't think so.

Makarova can indeed beat Sharapova if Masha is in poor form.

But Masha is in a very good form so she will beat Makarova badly.

Sharapova actaully often get easy draw.
It's not even surprised she will win slam with totally cakewalk draw.

Venus was outplayed, plain and simple. You need to watch matches before spewing shit like that.
If you really think that Hampton could have played her real game over Maria then you're wrong, Maria would haver never let Hampton be so dominant especially off the ground.
