Re: Beginning of the 2013

Ula vs Hampton in R1, and if she makes it, R3 againt Azarenka logically

Aga's part is quite good, but she could get Barthel in R3 who isn't a gift.

Re: Beginning of the 2013

Good draw for Aga! Goerges is the only one who could be tricky until quarters, but she's not playing well lately. Then if Li survives to quarters, she's going to be tired. Stosur sounds dangerous, but she can easily (and hopefully) be ousted by someone early in the draw.

Edit: just noticed that Goerges is in quarterfinals too, so I suppose Aga will valtz to quarters with ease.

Re: Beginning of the 2013

Barthel and Li Na are the biggest threats. Mona is a great player when on. Aga had a close call with her back in Montreal last year taking it to a third set tie breaker. The win over Li Na this week should give her a great boost of confidence if she faces her in the QF. Best of luck Aga.

Very unfair draw for Ula. She always seems to get placed at the top of draws even when seeded.

Re: Beginning of the 2013

Tough R1 for Ula, Hampton can be dangerous. What a treat waiting for her if she finally passes R2

Re: Beginning of the 2013

I think Ula should be happy if she makes to 3rd round. Has she even been that far?

Re: Beginning of the 2013

I like this draw. Overall it's quite balanced. I prefer a SF against Maria rather than Vika. Barthel and Pervak could be tricky but I think Aga will be very determined to get at least to the QF. JJ and Ana are beatable.
I just hope she will be fresh for the QF against Na.

As for Ula, sadly I can see a 1st round exit for her. Hope she proves me wrong.

Nope, R2 five times.

I hate it. She drew pretty much the most difficult opponent from every drawing bracket. Heck, even Begu in R2 is not a convenient opponent.

On the upside, Aga has beaten a wide variety of opponents already and at the same time hasn't been pushed to the limit by any of them, so she should be relatively fresh, confident and match sharp.

Re: Beginning of the 2013

I guess

2R: Arantxa Rus
3R: Ksenia Pervak

The later rounds are too far to predict

Ula - well. Hampton is not a pusher by no means so I guess Ula will fight
