Re: Open your umbrellas! Grass season has started!

Rybarikova or Pironkova in R4 won't be a gift, they are both good grass court players. She should reach this round at least, but I hope for a new semifinal appearance

Re: Open your umbrellas! Grass season has started!

Halep (if she has any energy left), Vinci (she made the 4R last year and is improving at the slams) and Pironkova are probably her biggest threats being realistic.

I don't see Li making the QFs. She has only won 3 matches since Stuttgart. Her form in Easbtourne (like most of the Top 10ers) was awful.
Barthel has only won 1 match at a tournament since Indian Wells suffering 6 first round exits. She has been eliminated in the first round of the last 5 slams. Great player but seems to disappear after the first 2 months of the season.
Petrova ended last year in great form and has just dwindled away to nothing. She has only won 9 matches all season.
Pavyl is not great on grass. I see Pironkova taking her out in the first round.

Anything less than a QF will be disappointing. I really don't want Errani to overtake her in rankings as her draws will get more difficult. That and the fact Errani has never won anything more than an international title to be ranked 4 in the world.

Re: Open your umbrellas! Grass season has started!

Pathetic loss from Aga as #1 seed in Eastbourne R1 to Hampton

At least Aga has a very nice draw at Wimbledon. Meusburger should be easy

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: Open your umbrellas! Grass season has started!

Yes, good day for Polish tennis All have won their first round matches, like at the French Open a month ago
Good luck to the sisters!

Aga played well today. Players like Meusburger usually don't threaten her anyway, so that was quite expected. But she still showed a good level overall

Re: Open your umbrellas! Grass season has started!

Aga and Ula into Wimbledon R2 !

Both should win their R2 matches too. Losses would be embarrassing. Go

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

I am worried about Ula's serve. She seems to have some problem there.
Anyway, let's hope she can make the R3 for the first time and she should.
As for Aga, avoiding injury is important especially when playing on such a slippery court.

Riske reached Birmingham semifinals two weeks ago, she could be really tricky for Ula. A loss wouldn't surprise me, even if Ula is theorically the favourite for the win.
