Piece of piss

Top 32 seeds have byes so there's a number of nice draw possibilities.

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

I think there are plenty of main draw players who she'd have a good chance against, in current form. Probably only a handful of the seeds though.

She does seem to be getting through very efficiently at the moment.

Fantastic results for Heather. With the exception of her bout of sinless last week she hasn't lost to a player outside the top 50 for over 4 months if I recall correctly...!

Bencic is something of an unknown quantity though and obviously MUCH better than her ranking suggests. My money is still in Hev though because of the recent form being just so incredible.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Yes it's the worst first round and possible second round we could have hoped for but then again any second round was going to be tough. I've yet to see Bencic play but I hear she plays quite similarly to Hev. Can anyone shed some light?

Kuznetsova

I wouldn't say they play similarly. Belinda's like Ivanovic (with a really good BH)

Belinda's mentality for her age is really good. What Hev has on her side is experience, she's been on tour/been in many more tough situations that Belinda has.

I think it'll be a toughie, If Belinda's inexperience comes to the forefront. Hev has a good chance.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Let's hope she's back to her wicked ways this week.

So not at all like Heather then Oh well, don't know where I heard that (probably somewhere in GM ) But come to think of it, I've heard her being compared to Hingis too, but maybe that's just down to the connections they have.

Anyways, their match is 4th on Court 3 today. I'd estimate around 2am UK time.

I don't really trust my own judgement, but Ivanovic wouldn't have been my point of reference, from what I've seen of her (mostly bits of the Wimby semi and final). Compared to Konjuh, she didn't have the power but she moved better and was more consistent. She bossed Cornet, though, so maybe she's somewhere in between.

Perhaps you'll have the chance to make up your own mind, assuming you have a lot more moral fibre than me.

EDIT: it's not on telly, is it? So no opportunity for you to see it.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Yeah, I don't see much Ivanovic in Bencic. Belinda is not a typical power-baseliner, at least from what I've seen.

Having said that, I don't think she is a tough draw for Hev. Bencic doesn't have the game to dominate opponents at this point. If Hev keeps up her recent form, I predict a tight, straight-sets win.

~Keys ~Kvitova ~Bencic ~Pliskova ~Ivanovic ~Bouchard ~Putintseva ~Wozniacki ~Kovinic ~Goerges ~Watson ~Chirico ~Witthoeft ~Konjuh
