Smile Bye Guys!

I leave tomorrow afternoon for vacation at a non-internet place in Cornwall. Here is my Russian Roulette Wimbledon prediction, since I won't be back till it's all over:

1. One seeded Russian player will progress farther than her seeded position.
2. One other Russian will score a decent (not huge) upset, but will not advance far after that.
3. A couple of Russians will crash out in the first round.

I don't have any particular player in mind for any of these scenarios, but it all sounds so plausible, doesn't it?

Hope to come back to find huge "Victory" posts on Russian Roulette!

Cheers!

Janie

Bye Janie! Don't they have the internet in England? And why would you go during Wimbledon?

Have a great trip!

Janie, you forgot to include Anna making it to the fourth round!

Bye Janie! Have a great time My vacation will start in about a month from now where I can see the WTA and ITF Junior Russian girls in Montreal and Grade 1 in Repentigny .

Cornwall is a small town in Ontario, Canada. Or there must be a small town Cornwall in USA, I guess. I am sure there is no Cornwall in England, right Eggy?

Poor Cat, I bet you did not take a geography class in your life?

SHARKY, Cornwall is a county in the south-west of England. In fact, Cornwall IS the south-west of England.

Have a nice trip JANIE. Cornwall's supposed to be very nice at this time of year (although I'd never go there. It's full of inbred wierdos. But don't let me put you off.)

oh lol @ cassius at the inbred weirdos

Have a great time there, Cornwall is a throwback to the dark ages (never been there).

Obviously one Russian will lose in 1st rd as Anna plays Tatiana hope no more though

Good luck to my favs

Thanks, guys!

Can't wait. It is going to be 95F/35 C in Philadelphia tomorrow. Cornwall (UK)? 65f/18C!!!!

Hey, Cornwall is great! But then, I love the Dark Ages. I was born then!

I also hope only one Russian loses in the first round, Eggy. I won't say who I hope that only one will be, though!

Wanted to start a new thread, but since Janie has started one I will write here
Hey, I`m also off the Internet for a week or so - moving out to Lyon. When I`m back I want to see 3 or 4 of the Russian girls still in the main draw of Wimbledon

Bye, fresh!

The RR ranks are thinning out -- I hope someone here will root for Elena Bovina in my absence! I know the others will have plenty of fans, but Elena is sometimes forgotten (except by Eggy, of course!).
