Paszek had already good results on the tour at that time and was a known dangerous uprising player.

Plus JJ was very frazzled that day. Her driver took her to Albert Park, and she was worried she was not going going to be in time for the match.

I think the helicopter should charter her on time and to the right court this time.

Intriguing match for sure. Will Laura be asked for, or be offered, her choice of court by the schedulers. (Like many of you, I'm assuming it will be Centre/no.1 Court). How much pressure and hype will the British media pile on between now and Monday. Will Jelena be clever and not antagonise what is sure to be a fiercely partisan crowd? Yup, this is THE ticket for Monday. :yippee:

I just hope Laura does herself justice, but JJ should win.

Well...I love Britain, and I think Robson has a promising future, and the fact that this match may VERY LIKELY trump Venus on Centre Court....I want Robson to win then. A British fairytale story to start the Championships is ALWAYS good during a World Cup year. Or during a UEFA year.

Jankovic is clueless on grass

For the 732545725th time: she isn't.

Birmingham title (over Sharapova), Den Bosch RU in 2007. She has sucked at the English Open for the past few years due to reasons other than her actual ability on this surface.

This will probably be on the main court, but I'm sure SportTV will find some ATP scrubs in the parking lot courts to show instead.

Robson is good, but come on. JJ would have to play pretty badly and Robson would have to play her best for LRob to win. I like the girl, but she's not a godsend from the junior level.

Im not expecting Laura to win, but some posters are acting as if its Serena shes playing out there. She has a shot, even if its only a very slim chance.

On another note, why has JJ not played since the French? She normally turns up to the British events and I was dissapointed not to see her come over.

And haven’t you already declared 75393842 times that Maria is no longer a factor on grass because of her 2005 growth spurt? That she can lose to damn near anyone. (http://www.tennisforum.com/showpost.php?p=17923228&postcount=23) So why are you suddenly holding out a 7-5 in the 3rd win over Maria as some kind of proof that JJ doesn’t suck on grass? Pick a lane. :weirdo: :lol:
