Vesnina made Budapest final :confused:.

So that changes the fact she is the second worst player in the top 100 after Cornet? No, it does not.

How DARE you put Empress in the middle of so many peasants :weirdo:

She is easily the frontrunner for her favorite slam. Just because she was on a shopping tour all over Europe and tanking one tournament after the other doesn't mean she is not FULLY FIT AND READY!

Empress playing mind games with y'all :worship:

now I truly believe this is the end :hysteric::sobbing:

I don't know what Oudin is doing in that list.

But yeah, Zvonareva, easily. She's a non-entity nowadays.

I see Empress making a 4th round if BFFrena is in her section. Otherwise she won't even try and lose 2nd round to Baltacha :oh:

It's sad. JJ was once one of the players to beat at RG and a guarantee to get into the final rounds.

Now, I'll be thankful if she makes it to R2.

Be careful what you wish for! Rumors out of Paris are that Mel is slated to be JJ's 2nd Rnd opponent and that Rafa is personally coaching Mel with the specific intent of destroying JJ.

You sure you want JJ to reach R2?

That's a bit farfetched isn't it? Ivanovic will have a good run. Luckily she draws some scrub like Wozniacki or that other polish vulture and she'll finally make it to the 2nd week of a slam.

I voted for JJ, Mel and Franny...

Mel has nothing to do with a top player these days even I like her...

JJ lost almost to everyone this year...

and Franny was such a great clay-court-player when she had won Roland Garros but this year she is really far from this... okay she will win one or two matchs but not more unless she remember her self how she can and did play in the past on clay...

This joke makes laugh only Maria's fans.
You work to the disadvantage of her. I'm Aga's fan but I also really like Maria but always when I see posts of her fans like you which in all threads (doesn't matter what it is about) tries to sneer at Aga I can't cheer her. I think she wouldn't be happy of that fans...

? So you like Maria yet shade her everytime because we're always making fun of Radwanska? Talk about integrity. I truly dislike Radwanska, regardless of what her fans have to say about Maria. You guys could call her GOATpova for all I care.

Why is Kuznetsova on there? :confused: She always brings it for the Slams to some extent... even in her slump, she's only lost before the 3rd round at a Slam once (Wimbledon 2010). All the top8 seeds will probably be hoping they don't have to play her in the 3rd round.

Wozniacki has been doing decent-ish and probably good enough to beat any unseeded player atleast. Home fans should carry Marion to a couple of wins. Is Zvonareva even playing it?

Schiavone...if there's any justice then she will be disposed of by any maindraw entrant, but I still have that nagging feeling that the draw's going to fall apart and she's going to get her unworthy talons on yet another piece of RG silverware :sobbing:

Peng is probably the most unthreatening of the seeds, all in all.

That awkward moment when Zvonareva seems a bigger walking bye compared to OUDIN

Vera. There really is no hope for her :sobbing: From the poll also Oudin but she is not a top player!

Hmm, close between Oudin, Zvonareva, and Martha.

Miracle Worker
May 19th, 2012, 11:03 PM
Big 3 - Oudin, Zvonareva and Jankovic :spit: Good Lord....

Vera and Jelena will somehow manage to win couple of matches and will reach somehow 3rd or 4th round. They both in deep slump but still in draw we will have 60 players like Mayr, Yakimova or Minella. So they will win few matches in Paris.

Mynarco
May 21st, 2012, 02:58 PM
Jankovic is a walking BYE now. I think she can lose to Yakimova or Feuerstein

You as her fans (Maria has many fans who treats her like goddess) are her biggest card for people who don't know her. I must say that I'm interested in WTA for one year but I started to like Maria recently and I don't know many about her, so I identify her with you a bit. And wherever I see avatar with Maria I expect the next 'joke' about Aga even if the thread has nothing in common with Aga. It's started to be boring, because everyone on this forum knows that users with Maria in avatar hate Aga, so you don't have to always remind that she wasn't in GS's semi, plays more tournament than Maria, isn't the most beautiful player etc. Everyone knows it and this works to the detriment for Maria, not for Aga

I cant remember a season where so many good players are having off years. There are literally 14 of the 32 seeds I expect to struggle in round 1. Some due to injury(Zvonareva, Hantuchova, etc) and some due to poor play(Jankovic-no clay wins except for fed cup, Pavlychenkova-season long slump, etc).
