As for Monica at RG, we need to pray for Paszek I think.
And if they're seeded in GS they can always draw dangerous unseeded players in the first round.

I remember I was 7 yo, when Spirlea was seeded 6th at AO and she played Serena in the first round. I was in the first grade and I was almost late for school that morning because I stayed to watch the whole humiliation

Better let's pray for Paszek at RG and someone else than Paszek at Wimbledon
