LOL Jon said that Petrova is no way near the player as Vera is

I am sorry, he is quite insightful but this is a big mistake out here.

I think this just shows how much he really knows about women tennis

Maybe he forgot that Nadia has been injury plagued for years now. Maybe he forgot that Nadia has been romping past her first three round opponents.

Capriati's loss is shocking. She'd been playing well and, remember, won this tournament only two years ago. And the player who beat her, Nadia Petrova, isn't nearly the player Zvonareva is, or at least will be.

-Oldest game in wtaboard, started in April 2000 even before wtaworld is born.
-You can create your own player, making their own name, making their personality.
-Some player has been playing for more than 10 years

Jon should be proven right or wrong, at least, for the time being, in the next round of RG. However, the guy is first to admit that he is often wrong.

Jon hit with Jen in the practice session, and he said that Jen was hitting great and is a huge threat to win,...then, she loses....and Jon hates being wrong, although he should be used to being wrong, and he trys to down play Nadia. I can definitely see a Serena vs Nadia final...

I bet he didn't see both matches.

Look at the top of that article:

Posted: Sunday June 01, 2003 5:14 PM

By that time the Petrova match was only playing on ESPN. And I doubt that Jon is in Paris. Or, even if he is there, for that matter, I doubt that he managed to see both matches going at the same tim. So, my guess is, he just suggested that 24 ( Vera's rankings ) is much less than 76 ( Nadya's rankings ) and all remaining blah-blah-blah is just conclusions from that math...

Jon is in Paris, it says so on all the reports posted on

I don't understand why Jon-haters are constantly pointing out why he's not an 'expert'. These people are paid to make predictions, unlike us who do them on a messageboard. It's their job, whether you agree or not. If you don't like his predictions, just be glad he's not a doctor or surgeon, where making predictions actually COUNTS for something.
