Re: First Round Upsets

Cirstea, Wozniacki, Venus, Zakopalova, Paszek

Have a feeling that Puig will beat Petrova and Halep will beat CSN

MANDY MINELLA. PRISCILLA HON

CASEY DELLACQUA. JARMILA WOLFE. SAMANTHA STOSUR
QIANG WANG. SHILIN XU. AYUMI MORITA. NAO HIBINO
LESIA TSURENKO. ALIZÉ LIM. NAOMI OSAKA. JULIA GÖRGES.
OLIVIA TJANDRAMULIA. NAIKTHA BAINS. KIMBERLY BIRRELL.
KAROLINA PLISKOVA. LIZETTE CABRERA. DESTANEE AIAVA

Re: First Round Upsets

Oudin beating Paszek is the safest bet.

Makarova won´t like Kuznetsova´s heavy ball much, so if Kuznetsova can keep it in the court she should win.

Robson is not such a bad draw for Wozniacki. Wozniacki will go into the match as the underdog and Robson is more than capable of beating herself.

Venus should be able to beat Ula Radwanska. She struggles with good consistent players.

If Kanepi arrives late and tired (looks like she will) Zakopalova´s flat-hitting could cause her huge problems.

Na Li has no good experience with AMG. It looks like the courts will be slow and heavy, so there is definite potential for an upset.

Barthel. Good luck predicting that one. Given Barthel´s lack of a claycourt season, poor form and abysmal Grand Slam record Kerber should win this. The match-up itself clearly seems to favour Barthel.

Halep/CSN is a total pick´em to me. Shame for both really. With a kinder draw they´d both be R16 players easily.

EDIT: Forgot Bartoli. Impossible to predict her either. Sure Govortsova could take this to at least wasting seven matchpoints before losing 8-10 in the 3rd set.

I can already see Su-Wei winning on a forehand dropshot return winner.

sounds like a plan

She couldn't even hold her serve against Beck or Doi
