I sense an all Williams final. Both Serena and Venus are better than Lindsay on clay.

Apr 3rd, 2005, 12:09 AM
I wonder why Lena D pulled out?

I don't mind Venus and Lindsay being on the same side of the draw but the same quarter:( I was really hoping to get to see both Williams' and Lindsay. Guess I'll only see Serena and Lindsay or both Williams' since I am not going until the semis. Oh well, since it is most likely her last year I'll have to root for Lindsay to come through that section. Although it would be neat to witness in person and all Williams final. Should be some interesting quarters though.

I don't mind Venus meeting tough oppositions because she needs to keep playing hard if she is to succeed in the majors. These are the same players she will meet therefore she has to be able to beat them now. I hope she puts Miami out of her mind, build on it and move forward.

i think serena's got about as tough as draw as possible, marrero is one of the tougher clay court unseededs (on her good days), pierce is by far the best clay court 9-16 seed (not to mention if bedanova gets on a hot streak who knows if she can find her form of a few years ago), then schnyder is always tricky, the only thing would be to have myskina over molik on her side, i'm not saying she won't get through the draw, but it is certainly a tricky one
i'm very pumped for clay season, the beginning 3 months are always fun, to see how things lay out to start the season, but when clay gets going, so many new dynamics as well as new players in the mix:
can myskina show why she is the current queen of clay as the french champ and get back into the fight for the top 3?
can lindsay translate hardcourt successes to the clay?
can maria and serena continue their rivalry with some classic clay encounters?
can amelie and venus defend their points?
will the former best clay courters, kim and justine, reclaim their spots at the top?

SO EXCITED

She won a couple of matches in Indian Wells, and played a really promising match against Sharapova in the quarters, so I don't know what you're talking about.

Oh, and she has given Serena trouble in the past. She actually kicked her ass pretty easily once, as well.

OK draw for Venus but would have been better if she was in Petrova's place in Myskina's section.

Great draw for Conchi though :devil: Jankovic and Petrova won't be too thrilled to see Conchi unseeded in their section on these courts.

Good draw for Serena - shame Mary is in there though as I'd like to see both do well.

It'll be interesting to see how Molik does on the clay this year. She's really improved since the US hard courts onwards but now has to transfer that fast court form to clay. This green clay's a bit faster but a lot of lower ranked players won't fear her perhaps as much as the would on a hard court. She's lucky she doesn't have Conchi waiting in the second round.

comeon Venus, time to win your first title of the year. Venus, myskina and kuzy the only top tenners not to have won titles yet, kuzy and myskina yet to make final apearacnes, it is about time!
So I guess you’re counting the Watsons Water Challenge as an event, otherwise you would have to add Lena D to that list.

Myskina- Not only has Myskina not won a title, or even made a final this year, she only has one win over anyone currently in the top 20 this season (Francesca Schiavone). She has yet to beat anyone in the top ten and she is currently out of the top 20 in the Championship Race.

Kuznetsova- Even though she hasn’t won a title or even made a final this year she is not really having a bad year. She has made 2 QFs and 1 SF in 5 events played. She has had two bad losses this year, one to Mirza and the other just recently to Ivanovic. The biggest surprise is that she has yet to beat anyone in the top ten. Everyone gave Venus such a hard time for failing to get a win over the top ten last season- the good news is that the season is only 1/3 of the way complete, lots more tennis to go... She’s been consistent enough to be just outside of the top ten in the Championships Race.

Venus- We can't come down too hard on Venus, although she sure is due for a big win. This is the longest she’s ever went without winning a title and we all the know her drought has to end sometime. With wins over Clijsters, Myskina, and Serena she’s showing she’s still got it in her. And unlike the other two girls in the top ten who haven’t won a title this year, Venus has at least made a final. She should move up a lot in the Championship Race, but as of now she’s still outside the top 20.

Myskina and Venus have pretty good draws so maybe one of them can break through and at least make it to the finals, where of course Serena will be waiting for them... finals are better than nothing, it’s a good start to the clay season!
