The ones I'd really like to see on television:

Kuznetsova vs. Venus (will it be close? or will Venus cruise like last time?)
Petrova vs. Serena (revenge for Serena? it'd be interesting to watch)
Henin-H vs. ANYONE ;-) :bounce: (so good to have you back baby!)
MoMo against either Williams (preferably Serena, preferably a non-choke, unlike last year)
Davenport against either Williams (they never meet up on clay, it'd be interesting to see!)
JCap vs. Serena (revenge match? sign me up!) or Venus (they haven't played each other in forever!)

There are some potentially awesome match-ups waiting for us...here's hoping the draw is good and that seeds are able to hold!

My only chance to see Conchita on French TV (I don't have Eurosport :( ) would be that her draw resembles this:
1r Martinez-Navratilova
2r Martinez-Testud
3r Martinez-Dechy
4r Martinez-Mauresmo
QF Martinez-Pierce
SF Martinez-Davenport
F Martinez-V.Williams

and of course, a win of Conchita live from RG wd be the best thing that could happen in my life !!! ;)
Go, Conchita ! A por todas !!! :bounce:

Four quarter finals between any top players (top meaning players in form to include players like Svetalana, sprem etc at their best). In the recent we seem to get one decent quarter and washouts in the others.

And the last time they played on a hard court was when again? Yes, Serena was a much better hard court player than pre-grand slam winning Juju...but 1.5 + years is too long to use the past as a good indicator for the future, especially given the rise in double H's play over that time.

We will (hopefully) get to see the answer to this question after Wimby...Just off the top of my head, I'd give 'rena the advantage on the faster US courts and Justine the ad on Rebound Ace.

I know, I got a sad life ! ;)
Listen, I've been supporting Conchita for 10 years now and she 's been close to win it but never actually WON and my dream is that she wins it one day.
It may not be the best thing to happen in my life, of course, but I wd feel so relieved and happy after all these years hoping she takes the title.

the rise in Kapros' play the last year or year and a half would lead me to think that she'd have more of a edge on clay vs Henin than she did before

:rolleyes: Yes. Because, of course, Henin wasn't *really* ill that day. She just sucks hard. And hasn't gotten any better over the past 18+ months. Why does she bother playing tennis?



Funny, though, how such a bad player has a 3-3 record again Serena in their last 6 matches (from the start 2002 onward). Serena's only hardcourt wins were nearly 3 years ago now.

my argument was as stupid as yours. apparently Serena has the slight advantage on faster courts but Henin is better on rebound ace :eek: if 1.5 years is too long ago to have as an indicator, what makes you think that GUESSING how good Henin has become vs Serena on any surface but clay is any better :rolleyes: at least records are hard facts...opinions are subjective and somewhat biased :)

Henin may have got better, but not only are you presuming Serena hasn't got any better, you're presuming she's got worse. so i'm giving you your *rolleyes* back and you know where you can shove it

have a nice day :wavey:

Well, first you can look at the number of matches. Justine and Serena have played half of their total head to head on clay. Justine won 3, Serena won 1. These matches were all within the past two years, 2 in 2002 and 2 in 2003. So, allowing for chance and a bit of change over the past year, I can say that on that surface Justine is at least competitive with Serena.

They've played once on grass, at Wimby just last year. Serena won pretty handily, so I would think that she has the edge on that surface.

And then there are the hard/carpet match-ups. Hard court Serena leads 2-0, but both of those were in 2001. Justine was pretty weak on hard-courts until the beginning of 2003. She lost to most top-10ers when playing on the surface before then. After that time she started playing great on the surface (only losses from AO 2003 onward: Venus in the AO semis, Chanda in QF of Miami, Clijsters at Filderstadt, Sugi/Momo YEC, Kuzzie at Doha...that's 6 losses against 9 tournament wins).

Hence, it's pretty obvious that Justine's hardcourt game got a boost since 2001. Is it enough to match Serena? I don't think we have any reason to think one way or another. We know that Justine now beats people on hard-court she never would have back then...but does that apply to Serena?

And then there is their 1 carpet match, straights to Serena in the fall of 2002, I think. Again, basing things on one match is a little sketch...but given the speed of carpet and the fact that Justine hasn't shown as great an improvement on it as she has on hard courts, it seems fair to think that 'rena would have the edge there still.
