Venus will still be ahead of Fran because Eastbourne won't be taken into account for Wimby seeds ;)

Could Vera be a dangerous floater at Wimbledon?

Would be interesting if she, unseeded, drew Hingis in the 1st round since she was seeded and drew Hingis, unseeded, 1st round at the OZ. :eek:

Vera :hearts: I'm going to be cautiously optimistic about this week. I got my hopes up for a return to form after Auckland, too, so here's hoping this time Vera can sustain her good play. Take the title, Vera, and get your ranking back where it belongs! :yeah:

Francesca :sad: :( :o Not surprised though. Grass really isn't your surface, I'm sure you'd have beat Vera on any other surface :)

Great, we have our spoilt brat back playing well. She should reach the final, although I'd love Meilen to, specially reading some of Vera's fans comment about Meilen when they played doubles together.

I think its funny how Auckland was the last really good tournament for Vera and Meilen but Tu's was back in 01 :tape:

americans are quite the true rulers of grass.
venus, serena and lindz for obvious reasons, but craybas, raymond, tu, jackson are great players on thier own right when "grassing".
if vera reaches the final - it would be a great achievment and a good time to meet a top player for her (that meaning - not early in a tourny, and after winning more than a single match...)

comments I made were based on seeing their doubles match in Berlin where Tu made like 10 DFs and never hold serve

Yeah when Vera was playing better and Fran was playing worse :)

It wasn't just that comment, it was why's Vera playing with her? She's not good, she sucks etc. It's unnecessary.

if she sucks so much than why is she in the semifinals :p More than Franny can say!

I always said Tu was not that bad. She has flat groudstrokes and a nice feeling where to place the ball. Still, there are better doubles players than her

In that Rome match, Vera played well but Fran was exhausted after her big wins, she just couldn't quite keep the level up :(

I'm not saying you, I'm saying all her fans.

Hope she doesn't lose to Meilen Tu after her nice wins in Birmingham! I'm a bit afraid however, when I think of the Auckland tournament: she demolished players such as Kirilenko and Hantuchova and then took only 4 games to Bartoli in the finals :s

Keep the good form up and win, Bepa!!! :D
