Then you should visit http://www.content.german-open.org/ and go to the draw link. It doesnt seem to work properly

The bottom half looks harder to me. Oh...no. Patty and Conchita would
be in the same half of the draw. :lol:

venus road to a possible Kim looks decent. and maybe another title. i don't see anyone, not even Amelie getting very far. and not being mean, but i have an Amelie feeling of "injury" for some reason. But she is such a great player, i hope she can pull out her bag the great clay courter she is and make a decent showing at the French this year.


why am i seeing players names in her two and three times?

I agree, Venus has a very good opportunity to make the semis but for some reason I don't believe Venus is going to play in Berlin. I'm not liking that wrapped thigh thingie at all.

God I hope I'm wrong. She has a great chance here.

anyways...
ms Venus half.

1st Bye
2nd Dechy
3rd Suarez/Smashnova
QF: Nadia Petrova
SF: Kim Clijsters/Vera Zvonareva

Smashnova wont beat Maleeva. Sorry, Maggie beat her in a poor shape last year and that quite easily.

might be a good draw for anyone going early unless that want to see a top 5 player in a good match. Interesting how Kim, Jennifer, Amelie get easy 2nd and even 3rd rounds with qualifiers, Jelena and low ranked players to follow byes and Testud, Pierce, Zualaga, Smashanova, Maleeva, Suarez, Schett, Sharapova, Schiavone, Mandula, Safina, Farina,Schnyder and Hantuchova are all given a minefield of each other to get through.

oh well, aint that much better if ms Venus meets Maleeva again :p

Something interesting about the draw that no one has discussed yet. Vera is ranked higher than Venus, but it is Vera who has to play in the first round while Venus gets a first round bye. I thought Venus' special seeding ran out? Or was she given a special sedding here too?

Well, u are right. I dont think Maggie would again win just one game, more like 6-3 6-2 but I dont see Venus losing to anyone except Mauresmo or Clijsters here...

patty versus dani is a very tough first round. i have a bad feeling that patty is going down to steadily improving dani unless she is on form

Out of the top 4 seeds, I think Venus has the toughest QF with Petrova and the toughest SF with Clijsters. :(

Out of the top 4 seeds, I think Venus has the toughest QF with Petrova and the toughest SF with Clijsters. :(Those tough matchups will be good for venus should she come through and I believe she will. Every match she has to fight for will do her a world of good. At this stage of Kim's return from injury may not be too bad for Vee either, may not be as tough as it looks on paper. If Kim makes the semis, then her rust should be almost gone then.

Some excellent 1r matches:

Anna-Lena Groenfield vs Karolina Sprem
Maggie Maleeva vs Anna Pistolesi
Meghann Shaughnessy vs Jelena Dokic
Barbara Schett vs Maria Sharapova
Dinara Safina vs Silvia Farina Elia
Patty Schnyder vs Daniela Hantuchova

TIER 1s are the best - where else would you get high quality players facing each other in the first round?

Omg, Jelena has a tough draw :(

Shaughnessy, then probably Sprem who beat her last year and then Clijsters!!!

GO JELLY!
