Red face i am not into Wimby this year..

Because for one the ESPN coverage is horrible. It feels more like an ATP tour event than a grandslam. Also I am tied of the cheating that goes on in tennis. Wimby draw is stacked like hell, those fools are trying like hell to give Kim and Juju a grandslam and they want Venus and Serena to fall.

I find it a cheatin' shame how Serena got ELS again.. and Venus got two hard Russians. While Kim got horrible non grass playing clay courters. The draw is stacked. Alex got Loit, the same kid who gave Serena fits.

I know many of you won't feel the way I do about it, but bottom line Wimby are cheaters and draws are rigged. I know that if Venus or Serena were #2 and #3 that they still would have gotten the draws that they got at #1 and #4.


I hope truth prevails and a Williams takes home the trophy to show cheating and dishonest people that cheaters never win.

Again... the draw is stacked against the Williams and for other players.

I agree 100% about the coverage but not about the draws.

Good luck in your next match Serena

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.

yes, the coverage blows! I like how you speak your mind, Dawn... no matter what bullshit went on with the draws (and will continue to go on), our girls always advance high in the tournaments.

Williams x2 Clijsters Golovin Ivanovic Li Jackson
Federer Blake Fish Roddick Grosjean Bryans x2

Dawn,

I guess it makes the fixers feel that as long as Kim gets to be #1, they do not mind watching 60 60 boring performances.
Unfortunately, the easy draws fail to tune Clisters up and she fails when she meets the first challenge.
Even EsPn.com said at RO that Kim was "Chosen" to win rolland Garros but see how boring that final was!! She may become #1 and like Hingis be critised thereafter.

dm--i'd be more concerned about the draw in terms of having 32 seeds that "protect" the seeded players...moreso than already needed which means the top players not only benefit from an uneven purse distribution but also easier competition

Thanks Cari, and I still think Venus and Serena are the ones to beat but I am tired of organisers trying their best to cheat against V@S.

ESPMEN is atrocious as hell and won't give the ladies their props. I find myself hoping Roddick and Agassi lose .. and it is not right. lol

I love how they can rig public draws. It really amazes me how they get away with it at every tournament, year after year.

Serena is an amazing player and the draw doesn't really mather, she is the favourite for the title any way you put it. I don't see anyone troubling her on this surface.
And about Kim: the easy draw didn't help her at RG, I think it was more of a disadvantage, because she did'nt really have to play before the finale, so if they are rigging the draw they are not doing a good job ;-)

Good luck to K-lina Sprem, Venus, Tati Golovin, Daniela, and Lena D

nope she isn't and never will be, but she's a grasscourter and knows how to serve and volley.

I swear, when they did the draw those blabbing women were put there to divert attention while they were rigging the draw.
