I know everyone will probably be thinking Venus virtually has a bye into round 2.

However, Venus can be vulnerable in the first round of grand slams, 7-5 in the third against Kudryavtseva demonstrates this point pretty well...

Cavaday is a very talented player, and she is british! Match points had against Hingis last year!

even though I love Vee, wouldn't it be amazing if a brit girl beat a Williams sister :fiery:

as uz, Venus should TOTALLY win this.
as uz, i don't know what to expect.

i'd take a patchy perf as long as she ups her level every day til the last one.:devil:

Sorry, Cavaday has been playing poorly since she got injured, I'm saying Venus will demolish her. 6-3 6-4 (that's a demolition for Venus as a 1st round match ;) )

On Centre Court as defending champion? No chance.

but Cavaday can play some superb tennis!...

this is the only match i've ever rooted against Vee


would be amazing if she played Keothavong R2 though, would give Anne the chance to stake her claim as a strong threat to the tour, which I believe she has the potential to be with all her sexiness

Either Venus loses here, or will go very far :)
I say Venus, 5-7 6-1 6-1

Naomi's got no chance. Even if she was fit and in form it would still be a bad match up (and be on Centre Court where Venus is unlikely to lose). 2r is much more likely to be a banana skin for Venus.

if this match was on court 2, i think cavaday MIGHT have taken a set from her. But seeing as though its on centre, i see venus giving naomi a lesson. i predict venus 6-3, 6-1

I like Naomi a lot...but this is the worst possible opener for her. Venus through easily, 6/2 6/3 or better.

I voiced my concerns about this match already :scared: Cavaday can thump the ball but Vee should be able to exploit her lack of movement. Just as long as Vee doesn't go into passive mode and let Cavaday dictate, she should be fine.
