Has This Happened To Anyone??

Sigh in the first two rounds of Miami all of my faves have lost besides Iroda, Meghann(who hasn't played yet), Jelena and Nathalie Dechy (who have to play each other in the next round!)

The thing is though, almost all of them had to play each other! Dani lost in her first match, Monica pulled out, Elena Dementieva lost to Pratt (Iroda would have had to play Elena in the 2nd round if Elena won), Elena Bovina lost to Iroda, Tatiana lost to Iroda! Sveta lost to Dokic and now Jelena has to play Nathalie?? Is the tournament director trying to make all my faves lose?? lol My I sure picked the right players to root for

On the other hand if they all play each other it also ensures that some of your favourites will win

geewhiz I guess you're right. Of course there is also the possibility of more of them passing through to the next round if they didn't have to play each other you know?? But I'll try to look at it that way.

bis2806, lol I'm glad to see that me being pissed off provides humor. Glad Arantxa thinks so too

I was forgetting that your favourites are a little better than mine
