Wimbledon 2005!

Nice draws for Anne Kremer and Claudine Schaul! (Finally they have lucky draws at a Grand Slam )

Anne Kremer

First round: versus Abigail Spears (USA/69), a player who is in a slump actually (losing her last 4 matches) and isn't really a successful grass player- Anne Kremer can beat her for sure
Second round: versus Ai Sugiyama (JAP/25), on one hand a good grass player reaching Wimbledon quarters last year but on the other hand a player who is out of sorts in 2005 and in addition to that under pressure to defend so many points- she is beatable for Anne Kremer
Third round: Kim Clijsters (BEL/17), a very tough opponent who would probably bring Anne's Wimbledon road to an end (but Anne Kremer is leading Kim Clijsters 1:0 in the H2H 6:2 6:1 victory in 2001 )

Apart from the difficult third round Anne Kremer has a nice draw and she should be able to defend her third round from 2004.

Good luck Anne!

Claudine Schaul

First round: LL (Krajicek being injured); if Claudine plays like she did in the match against Klara Koukalova, she will zoom to round 2 for sure
Second round: Nadia Petrova (RUS/8); a stubborn adversary, but Claudine could play free, without pressure

Finally a beatable opponent in first round for Claudine Schaul who has no points to defend at Wimbledon.

Good luck Claudine!
