Now that the draw is officially made.
Which match do you fear most for your favorite? Which can you not wait for?

I'll begin.

Venus Williams vs. Jelena Jankovic.
Against Henin, I am very confident in Venus but Venus does not match up well against Jelena. Jelena is the human backboard, forcing errors out of Venus left and right. It will take a Wimbledon 2007-esque performance to win and I don't doubt this occurring. However, I favor a Venus-Henin match over a Venus-Jankovic.

Serena Williams vs. anyone.
:confused: wrist? :help:
Supergrunt?

Yours?

No fearful matches...

Hope: Venus serves well (if she does she wins the title)

Fear: Venus wont serve well ( if she doesnt... she'll have to fight for it)

The problem with the Williams sisters is that they both have different weaknesses.

For example, Venus can easily win against Henin, but Serena has more trouble, and she often struggles. Serena easily won against Jankovic at the Aus Open, but it's a different story for Venus, as she lost against JJ in 06 Wimbledon and 07 RG.

So, I fear a S. Williams - Henin match and also a V. Williams - Jankovic match. I hope Henin and Jankovic both get eliminated before they meet each other's destined Williams sister.

Golovin crashes and burns vs the mental midget Safina in the 3r where she would be favored to win that one, even hough she's ranked lower.

venus is definitley a more dangerous match up for justine, they haven't played in a long time, i hope they do at the open and hopefully its a good match if it does happen
