Strikes Venus down :eek:

Don't think any blogger has ever won the week they were blogging. The WTA will start finding it hard to find bloggers :lol:

On the other hand, the ATP blog often has players who won the tournament.

Forgot Srebotnik! :lol: 4 finalists in a row, and 4 losers. Well at least they are getting to the finals. I think previous ones never even got that far :eek:

Yep Chaky retired in the 2nd rd to Razzano when she was a blogger in Toronto. Granted she came in to the tournament feeling sick already. I think she had like only two entries.

4 losing finalist in a row! I'm really starting to believe this blogging jinx thing. :lol: ;)

Yes, as curses go this one aint so bad. If you asked a lot of the players how they would feel about being the losing finalist at the start of the week I bet most of them would be quite happy with that.

The only player who has won the singles title the week they blogged was Clijsters in Hasselt 2006, and the curse of the blog ended her career! Huber won the doubles title in Paris this year when doing the blog. There have been 8 losing finalists and 7 losing semifinalists.

Clijsters, Davenport and the Bondarenko Sisters are the only ones to have won tournaments while blogging as far as I'm aware.

Lindsay bloged in Quebec last year and won the tournament. I also hope she blogs again in Memphis again and win the tournament again just to prove there is not such thing as a blog curse.

If you count doubles then Huber blogged when she won the doubles with Black in Paris last year. But no one else.

Given the number of bloggers there has been and the extremely low success rate in winning tournaments then it's pretty safe to say there's definitely a curse. :eek: And it's not like it's only no hopers blogging - some top players have blogged and failed to win. There have been 8 losing finalists and 7 losing semi-finalists.

There is no such thing as the blogger's curse Lindsay did the Quebec blog last year it was really good and she won tournament. Jelena just happened to writing the Indian wells blog and lost. :lol:

I think the blog is distracting players. Writing is not what they do on every day basis, so they think "OMG I have to write some shit tonight" instead of thinking "I have to face such and such tonight; how am I going to win?" I have no other explanation :shrug:. I saw this thread today for the first time, but I had this thought for last few months :lol:

Venus's blogged for Wimby and won everything she entered.

But that was just 2 blogs :lol:
