Welcome to the green lawns of SW19 for the season's third Grand Slam. This Slam is very wide open with a whole host of players capable of taking away the title right now. Recent titlists Hantuchova and Larcher de Brito will be looking to go far here.

Cibulkova won here last year and is sitting way down at #19 in the rankings – she will have to find a different level if she is to come anywhere near defending her title.

Schiavone def. Chakvetadze
7-6(9) 5-7 6-3


Fantastic match here. Both were playing so well today and every point was fought for. Chakvetadze had 2 set points in the first but was unable to capitalise. She did well to fight back from 5-3 down in the second set to force a decider. However, her Italian opponent used her all court game to great effect and managed to hold off another fightback in the third to seal her place in R32.

Hingis def. (3) Kournikova
6-7(5) 7-5 6-4


What a shock!! Kournikova looked like she had it wrapped up, but Hingis dug deep to force the decider. 5-1 up in the decider, Hingis looked vulnerable and Kournikova mounted a comeback, but Hingis was able to close the door on Kournikova. Kournikova would have won the title had she kept her old points - this one will take her a while to get over! Hingis moves on to R16 where she will face Safina.

Daniela Gets Tough First Win
http://i290.photobucket.com/albums/ll275/artur0tennis/h6.png
Daniela Serving the match out
The Opening stages of any major are never easy, even for the world number
one and top seed Daniela Hantuchova. Coming of a title win last week in
Eastbourne the Slovakian got to face Iveta Benesova for the second time in
two weeks. Last time they played Daniela won in three and this week was
no different. In the First set Daniela played intellegently breaking at
her first opertunity to take the set 6-4. Daniela's focus dipped in the
second going down 0-5. Iveta had a set point for the bagel but Daniela
broke, only to be broken the next game and surrender the set 6-1. The
Third set saw a focuses Slovakian take complete control of the match,
winning it 6-4. Heres what she had to say after the match. "You know I
had played her last week and was confident in my play. This is my first
Grand Slam with the top seeding so nerves definitly crept into my forehand
in the second set. I'm happy I got this win and I'm ready to face Schiavone"

Making through the opening round with relative ease, American Monica Seles has reached a career best grand slam run.
In the first round she defeated the fiery Russian Maria Sharapova and went on to send Serb Jelena Jankovic Packing.

Now at the round of 16, Monica Seles will face compatriot Lindsay Davenport(seeded 6 at Wimbledon). We caught up with Monica to see how she felt reaching this stage of a slam.

So how does it feel to come this far in a grand slam,although its only the third round?
Well it may only be the third round but its my best so far and another round on would be better too. I feel honoured to be here atr this stage because some of the top seeds have fallen before me and Im just happy that I could progress on.

Ok, so have you got a game plan or any tactics as to how you will play your fellow American, Lindsay Davenport?
Well a fan did offer to break her legs for me and I was tempted to take them up on that offer but I feel if I play consistent enough and keep her on the move Im pretty sure I can come out on top today....

Thanks Monica, good Luck against the sixth seed, Lindsay Davenport

We'll catch up with Monica after her match too.

Daniela Speaks With TENNIS Magazine!

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2177/2424268275_a38124a08a.jpg


Q: Welcome, Daniela. What would you rate of your grass court season this year?
DH: I've always been a huge fan of Grass, I won my first Grand Slam on it so I've always been good on it. This year I feel I've had a very strong grass court season leading up to Wimbledon. After making the Final of Roland Garros I was fearing that I couldnt adjust but I made a Quarter-Final in Birmingham and won Eastbourne. Im happy with it so far and cant wait to go farther in Wimby.

Q: What does Wimbledon mean to you?
DH: It means a whole lot to me and I'm sure to all of the other players as well. It's just about the biggest tournament in the world. I love everything about it from the traditional all-white code for the clothing, strawberries and cream, and especially the grass courts. It suits my game quite well. I won my first grand Slam here too so it just briings back so many memories.

Q: What are your expectations? Maybe another run to the title?
DH: Well I'm just grateful to be here and doing so well. I remember last year I got didnt get to the final, which was my goal. I was just so nervous out there, in my semi final against Alize, but it was such a good experience for me. I don't have many expectations right. I just want to do my best and I will take it one match at a time.

Q: Will she still be playing with you in the doubles?
DH: I'm unhappy Doubles is gone, but it gives me time to focus on singles!

Q: Who is your pick for the title?
DH: Since I'mnot going to pick myself, I would have picked Kournikova, but she unfourtunatly lost. So Now Molik, Ana, MLDB and Davenport aare my picks.


Q: Lastly, Daniela. In the first round, you faced Iveta Benesova. What was your approach on that match?
DH: Win.

Q: Thanks, Daniela. Good luck at Wimbledon.
DH: Your welcome and thanks.

Schiavone def. (1) Hantuchova
3-6 6-2 6-3


Wow!! Schiavone follows up her great wins over Chakvetadze and Azarenka with a shock win over the world #1 here. Hantuchova was favourite for the title after having triumphed in Eastbourne last week. However, the feisty Italian played great in the final set and didn't crumble under the pressure. The last few games all went to Deuce but Hantuchova was unable to capitalise on her break point chances. How far can Schiavone go? She plays Clijsters next

Schiavone def. (7) Clijsters
6-2 1-6 7-5


Schiavone's fabulous run continues as she takes out two-time Slam champ Clijsters. Schiavone has had a lot of close matches now and is well practiced for the tense situations. SHe is looking like the one to beat right now! Tough luck for Clijsters who came up against an inspired player today, but good to see her back to some decent form.

ANNE KEOTHAVONG'S BLOG

As the most prestigious tournament in the world drifts closer and closer to its climax, only now are we beginning to witness the full extent of this weak era in our tour. Long gone are the days when our TV sets were graced with great champions and intriguing personalities like Sorana Cirstea (who I had the chance to talk to a couple of days ago.. I told her that she needs to come back so that we can tag team all those dumb Ball Bashers :D), Ashley Harkleroad, Serena Williams, Tatiana Golovin and Agnes Szavay nowadays only the dregs are left. Let’s be brutally honest here, what human being is going to spent $2 let alone $20+ to go to an OWTT tournament just to see players like Ivanovic and Safarova redefining the phrase Brunette Bolletieri Brainless Ball Bashing Bitches in front of our eyes. I mean do those bitchs even have one brain cell between them? Doubtful. And then of course that fugly bitch Fartoli and Danorexia, nuff said.

A lot of people have been speculating about who is to blame for this whole dreadful situation and 90% of the time the tour’s CEO champion88 has been mentioned. Hmmmm.... I’m not one to speculate myself but let’s just say that damn I miss Larry Scott.. You don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone! Thank God I’m here; I don’t even dare to think about the state the tour would be in without my thunderous debut this year. Injury hit me hard at my home slam this fortnight but the US Open series is fast approaching and I know that all the bitches are shaking in their boots about the prospect of facing me there. BE SCARED.

But Anyway, I’m still here because I’m supporting my friend Maria Kirilenko and praying desperately that she can save what’s left of this OWTT I hope you can all pray with me! She’s such a great player and personality and to see her name as the Wimbledon Champion would be so amazing... I also have to shout out to my gurl Victoria Azarenka who continues to defy the haters. She was suffering from an ankle injury herself this fortnight but I know for a fact that she will be back winning titles as the US hardcourt season comes closer. I’ll keep you updated on mine and my gurls progress as well as those dumb bitches who i mentioned before. J

Schiavone def. (4) Bartoli
0-6 6-1 11-9


Schiavone seemed completely overwhelmed at the prospect of playing in a Slam semi, but once she got a game on the board at the start of the second set, she seemed to really relaxand play her game. Once again Schiavone comes out on top of a tight third set and she finds herself just one match away from the title. She has already beaten the #1, #4, #7 and #12 players - can she get that final win? Heartbreak for Bartoli who was so close

Kirilenko def. Schiavone
6-0 6-1


Congrats to Kirilenko who wins her first ever tour title, and it comes at a Grand Slam - what good timing!! She played great all week, and her experience in last season's Aussie Open final definitely helped her here today. Schiavone had had long matches all week and she looked exhausted out there today and really didn't compete. Still a great tournament from her and expect to see good things from her in the future
