The probably of that is quite high... almost 99%! :eek: ;)

So it won't be fixed if that happens... ;) :p

I really hope that doesn't happen. I want Anna to rack up a few rounds in the French - without having to defeat Venus to do it.

Allez Anna Paris. :bounce:

As long as the Rome debacle does not occur as well. :eek: :p

Kournikova exits French Open tuneup event in first round

.c The Associated Press

STRASBOURG, France (AP) - Anna Kournikova lost in the first round of the Strasbourg Open on Tuesday, falling 7-6 (5), 6-2 to Petra Mandula.

The tournament is a tuneup for the French Open, which Kournikova missed last year because of injury. She has never gotten past the fourth round at the only Grand Slam event played on clay. She exited last week's Italian Open in the third round.

Mandula was a quarterfinalist at Roland Garros last year, losing in straight sets to eventual runner-up Kim Clijsters. The French Open starts Monday.

In other first-round action, Eleni Daniilidou beat fourth-seeded Iroda Tulyaganova 6-7 (3), 7-5, 7-5; and eighth-seeded Emmanuelle Gagliardi advanced by defeating qualifier Angelique Widjaja 6-2, 6-1.

I suppose it would be a little odd. Anna has drawn Venus and Serena early in several tournaments this year.
