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!

Claudine will play LL Beltrame who is definitely beatable

well, I see a one way traffic to 3rd round for Anne

only one problem is if Spears is eager for revenge for Eastbourne Cup lost
yesterday, if she's....

Anne has strapped left thigh, hope nothing serious
