Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2011!!!

HOLY SHIT BALLS. Full quarter:

10 J. JANKOVIC(SER)
A. BONDARENKO(UKR)

J. DOKIC(AUS)
J. NAMIGATA(JAP)

A. PARRA(ESP)
B. MATTEK-SANDS(USA)

V. LEPCHENKO(USA)
18 F. PENNETTA(ITA)

29 S. PENG(CHN)
T. PASZEK(AUT)

WC O. SANCHEZ(FRA)
P. HERCOG(SLV)

A. KEOTHAVONG(GBR)
V. DOLONTS(RUS)

M. OUDIN(USA)
5 F. SCHIAVONE(ITA)

The bottom part is VERY soft. I don't want to get ahead of myself but this could very well turn out to be her best showing in a slam.

And here you are, a black unicorn.

Not too bad a draw . But honestly, Parra is very solid on clay and Flavia is of course dangerous when in form. That being said, if Beth plays up to form she should be able to get through both matches . GL, Queen B!

Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2011!!!

It really depends on how the clay is that day. They both did great in Madrid on that surface but Bethanie did much better. In R1 of Rome, Arantxa lost [as a Q] in straight sets to Bartoli. Beth have a great win over Flavia infront of the big crowd like she enjoys and I think she was somewhat okay with her loss to Jarka in R2. APS did reach the finals of Acapulco but that was a long time ago and I think Bethanie is playing at a much higher level game-wise and confidence wise. I really hope she just takes this draw and runs with it.

BTW: H2H is 2-0 in favor of Beth.

2006 W R1 Bogota 6-2, 4-6, 6-2
2010 W FQR New Haven 6-1, 6-4

That gives me a slightly boost in confidence that she's beaten her on clay reguardless if it was years ago.

Re: The Queen's Palace: Queen Bethanie in 2011!!!

The h2h against Parra makes me feel more confident. I think it'll help Beth (like most other americans ) if the courts are playing as fast as reported .

I wonder when she'll play her 1st rd match Lets hope for a show court !

That's not a court with a stream is it?
