Raymond overcame incredible odds to beat Venus Williams in the 3rd round of the 2004 Aus Open. Now, for 2 & 1/2 years since that match, she has basically done nothing of note in her (singles) career. Can she overcome the huge odds a second time?

The oddsmakers don't think so.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if this was a double bagel (going in Hingis' favor of course)...I really see no chance of Raymond taking out Hingis (especially on her worst surface)

Raymond knows how to fight when the opponent is leading 6-0 5-0... :tape:

I thought the usual odds in this case are 1 in 250,000? :confused:

yes, but Raymond earned a substantial lowering of any ridiculously low odds placed against her, in that '04 match.
