Out of the top 3 vika is the most likely one to get out before QFs though.
agree on everything here, but, Pova, despite her big reputation for mental toughness seemed to me like a mess when she is expected to win/defend BIG, like her grand slams and like when is expected to when GS, ie Wimby 2011, Wimby 2012 (she was #1) AO 2012, AO2013 (after Serena lost)

so, defending this slam will be very heavy for her, but definitely doable given the opposition on clay

VIKA.

if Li Na and Petra are in QF, it means they must be playing good, if not great, and given Vika's game on clay doesn't really bode well for her to meet these two

plus Sam, would it be third time lucky? Sam was able to give a good fight the last two matches

VIKA.

I don't think sharapova has been particularly impressive this clay season, getting run close by safarova, ivanovic, kerber. Destroyed by Serena in Madrid. Would much rather be in her half.

Li and possibly Stosur would be tough qf matches but ones where I'd still back Vika. Everyone else Vika should deal with handily on her Rome form.

Oh silly you. Obviously the tan for the whole year comes from the natural sun in Australia she always enjoys till the end and all the flashlight photography with the big trophy.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Good draw, happy she's in Sharapova's half, even though I'm not convinced she'll get to the SF.

Huh.

If fashionguy is right it is

R3 Kanepi
R4 Bartoli
QF Na Li
SF Sharapova
F Serena

Apparently Stosur and JJ are not.

That would be the most horrible draw possible, if true.

I just don´t want Kanepi in R3.
