shinobu will get into the semis.. she'll beat kostanic, beat an off-form davenport, beat srebotnik in 3r, beat a gs underperformer schnyder in the 4th, then will beat some random hoe to get to the SF because henin-hardenne couldn't get to the QFs.......

hey i can dream =)

The title is rather funny.
Shinobu's retirement match vs. Kostanic. Well it rather implies that Jelena will. :lol:

Well, few players have been worse than Shino this year. Kostanic is one of them.

Shino can win in three sets.

sadly I see Kostanic winning.

Aug 24th, 2006, 01:20 PM
kostanic lost to KIRILENKO!!! so it has to be shino :D:lol:

Aug 24th, 2006, 11:57 PM
Hopefully Shinobu :yeah:

I think Shinobu will win. Jelena has only one 1 match at tour level since Bangalore this year.

It would be nice to see her end her career on Arthur Ashe against a big name player...maybe even under the lights.

If Kirilenko could beat Kostanic, Asagoe has a chance. :lol:

Shinubo beats Kirilenko at Wimbledon. Kirilenko beat Kostanic somewhere recently. Therefore Shinubo beats Kostanic. The logic is irrefutable :lol:

Not often i route against a lefty but in this case i will.
