On the way to Wimbledon - Grass Court Season 2011

First stop Birmingham in main draw next week!

Followed by Eastbourne in Q!

Pity that she couldn't play the ITF in Nottingham this week because of her third round at Roland Garros...

Good luck, though!

I think it´s not a pity Sori couldn´t play Nottingham because she could take some rest after the French Open and be fresh and ready for Birmingham... not sure if she plays Q at Eastbourne because I haven´t found a qualies entry list on the official website...

but anyway good luck in Birmingham, Sorana! looking forward to the shortest part of the season.. tournaments on grass are so nice and exceptional

TBE wrote it in the Entry List Thread of Eastbourne.

Re: On the way to Wimbledon - Grass Court Season 2011

Kick ass on grass!

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

At least she wasn't the only player of last year's Wimbledon who got blasted off the court by Kvitova.

Re: On the way to Wimbledon - Grass Court Season 2011

Sori's chances of a run in Birmingham will rise after the withdrawals of Sharapova, Bartoli and Hercog! Some more and she would be even seeded!

Re: On the way to Wimbledon - Grass Court Season 2011

Damn

Hantuchova and Peng are the only players left in the draw which I would definitely expect to beat Sori in any case...

But Chang on grass could be tricky, too. Let's hope she prevails

Re: On the way to Wimbledon - Grass Court Season 2011

Sori should beat Chang in my opinion...
