So, it seems that it is very hard to make any reasonable and humble predictions in this year's tournament at Wimbledon. For instance now Genie Bouchard doesn't have to worry about Serena Williams but Alizé Cornet in her next match.....

ESPN showed the odds after her loss and in order it's: Pova, Petra, Agatha, Bouchard, and Halep.

Pova's really the only player left in the draw that is worthy of the title.

Agatha winning would be so...

That said, seems like there's more players to rely on to beat her left than last year.

Is Lisicki still in? I'd be fine with either her or Halep winning but absolutely nobody else.

I will die if Lisicky can beat Masha in the semis and the French Open title curse continues haha.

I would be so down for CORNUT to win it all . I love that woman and all her fuckery (she honestly beats even Vika in that department) and it all began when she scared me shitless in that US Open third round last year .

We all were panicking when she drove Vika to the brink twice but now as she's beaten Serena twice it doesn't seem half as bad anymore.

In general Cornet is pretty damn underrated by most.

Re: •~º~º~Welcome to Vikaland~º~º~ • off-topic/introduction thread- Vikalume 2.

Cornut has amazing tennis IQ and SO much fight. When she is on and focused she really is a great player, but the problem is that her fuckery is just at astounding levels so she exhausts herself against players like Schmiedlová and Čepelová and then is fit enough to make it through the big matches like this one, but will inevitably suffer some burnout later in the year. Time and time again I watch her limp around the court, just willing herself through exhaustion (and self-imposed antics/drama) but anyone knows that can only last so long. If she could just find away to put away more opponents in two sets she could be great. She's having a very nice year though overall . I'm especially happy to see her pick up the French torch from Marion, who no one really expected to take from Momo.

Have you seen the Petra - Venus match? She deserves the title by that performance alone. Her R2 match against Mona was amazing as well.

Venus match wasn't that special from Kvitty. Venus actually made her look like a top 50 ballbasher for most of the match but she couldn't finish it off in the second set. Kvitova isn't winning this tournament I think.

Yes it was and I really don't see any expert arguing with that. It was the match of the tournament so far, due to the performance of both players.

Not arguing against "she might not win this", she may very well lose to Peng..it's Kvitova after all
