Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Possible debutantes already through to the qualifying round so far, from the IMO more likely to qualify to the least likely:

Lu
Jani
Bratchikova
Buzarnescu

Lu and Jani are playing against each other, so we're already assured of at least one debutante from qualies.

Some further possible debutantes still to play their Q-2R matches (6 such matches yet to be played).

Kvitova * Garcia * Dodin * Robson


Eu Jogo Ténis


Prokofiev + Son Goku = pwnage

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Li 2005? Wow I didn't know that

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Reka-Luca Jani qualifies for a Grand Slam MD in her first attempt

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Do you think that Cadantu has the chance of winning a match?

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

^If she does then the GM would explode

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.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

She beat Barthel and Yakimova on (indoor) hard. I don't have any hint of a clue how she did that considering that she is an indoor mug herself, while Barthel seems to fare very well with the fast surfaces, but she did it.

But AO is a different story and I can't see it happening, especially not without any tournament beforehand and the usual 1st slam nervosity...

I'm not as horrified by Cadantu's current ranking as most people in here are. It's not like she hogged her way to the top 30. And her actual results aren't too shabby for her ranking range, so who knows?

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

A bunch of possible debutantes through to the qualifying round:

Gojnea
Koehler
Boserup
Ormaechea
Khromacheva
Bratchikova
Savinykh
Larričre
Krunic

Two matchups between potential debutantes (Koehler/Boserup and Khromacheva/Bratchikova), so we already have two guaranteed debutantes from qualies.

And two other possible debutantes still playing their Q2R matches:

Bertens on to a third set vs Savchuk after saving a MP or several MPs
Buzarnescu vs Vögele also still being played.

Kvitova * Garcia * Dodin * Robson

Re: Grand Slam debutantes since the 2005 US Open

Should get a handful out of there. Maybe 2011 will have a bunch of new names debuting after a couple of lean years.
