Ayumi or Sofia??

Morita is a top junior, so no shame to lose against her, epecially on grass

but I'm surprised Sofi'as ranking is going higher week after week because she hasn t shown anything amazing on clay...maybe I'm wrong, we'll see :)

i think patty is the leader of the list that hates grass the most. she's better off on other surfaces :)

You know anything's possible, even Martinez won Wimbledon (beating Nav at that)...

there is no reason why Patty can't have decent results on grass - she's made the semis of Birmingham (pushing Sharapova to a tight 3 setter the year she won Wimbledon) and has beaten Clijsters on it (admittedly she was about 10 years old ;) )

Yes her groundies are not naturally suited to it but as with most things when it comes to her it's about attitude. She shown before that her serve can be very effective on grass - especially the swinging lefty serve to ad court - so many free points to be won.

Still i have no expectation that she'll get beyond round 2.

but yes i'd say Patty would be the most vocal hater of grass. A remember a couple of years ago there was a big fuss over the fact that she was going to skip the grass season. then she lost early at RG and had to tak a wildcard :lol:
