surely sam will take he chances, i hooe both her and azarenka make the finals in eastbourne so we can see that match up and look forward to it.

Don't worry, Caro will use her special tennis skills to beat Azarenka 6-0 6-1 with Azarenka smashing 10 rackets :)

A lot of my faves are in the this quarter actually. I want to see Alex, Kimiko, Magda and Mirjana do well. But they all got crap draws.

It will probably be Azarenka, Stosur, Wozniacki or Rezai unfortunately.

someone enlighten me, how does Sunshine always end up in cake draws? I can't remember the last difficult draw for her...not that I think she will get anywhere this year anyway

What do you mean by CAKEWALK DRAWS?
At the start of the Tourn or who she plays, as each round progress?

In the US Open 2009 -She drew Kuznetsova 4th Round
Was suppose to vs Sharapova/Lena D QF
Dinara had a cakewalk draw to the SF there...

by that I mean she never meats any distinguished dangerous player in R32/R16 - no Sharapova, Henin, Clijsters. It's always some choking headcase that she is beating before being trashed by a first decent player

You do realise that Henin/Clijsters just came back and Sharapova was out for a long time.

Only people who think tennis doesn't go beyond the Williams sisters, Henin, Sharapova and Clijsters would think this is a cakewalk quarter.

Don't forget Caro's cakewalk to the Madrid final last year. :lol:

Or Caro's seemingly cakewalk to the SF of the FO (which she blew) of facing no Top 10 player to the SF.

:p

Oh please.
Jankovic for example didn't even face a top 20 player to reach the Semis there.
She didn't even face a top 10 player until she reached the Final at IW.

I don't think this is a cakewalk at all.

No slam winners, no clear favourite, but lots of players who can cause damage. Two of the Eastbourne semifinalists, a Rosmalen semifinalist, a former Eastbourne winner, former Wimbledon semi-finalists, on-form players, giant killers.

Plenty of banana skins there.

Sam played so bad today but I dont think that will happen at Wimby.
First round will be tough but if she can get through that, hopefully she can make the SF.
So go Sammy! :D

Otherwise Caro or Vika.

I voted for Flavia because I'm bias, but I doubt it.

R1 Medina Garrigues
R2 Dulko
R3 Rezai
R4 Stosur
QF Azarenka/Wozniacki

Yeah, not so sure about that.

You got it the wrong way round. It's a cake draw BECAUSE Sunshine is in it.

Jun 18th, 2010, 04:02 PM

:yeah:
Kimoko because I liked what she was wearing at the Players party (she looked warm and it's a chilly 50 degrees where I live) and I'd like to see some old school smack-down...

...and Lucic because her story is almost as sad as Dokics'.

I think Caro has a good opportunity to reach another quarter final at a GS. I doubt that Azarenka will keep her form. Dont think she is mentally strong enough.

I dont know about Sam. Her serve should be good on grass but doubt anything else will make an impact. She seemed really slow in IW and Miami.

So hoping for Caro to go to the semis and once more show that she does belong in the top10!

Well, honestly Wozniacki potential QF opponents were radwanska, schiavone, stosur, and clijsters. it could have actually been an easier draw for her if she drew radwanska/schiavone.

This.


This is probably the most interesting Quarter only because there's so many "unproven" top players in it. If Venus or Serena were in it....cakewalk. But when there isnt a dominant player in a Quarter, it gets much more interesting.

Any of Caro, Vika, Flavia, Sam, Aravane, or Jie are "favored" to make it. But they'll have to play well to do it. And then the winner gets....Serena! So its not like they were drawn against Safina when she was #1 or something.

Jun 19th, 2010, 01:43 AM
Azarenka and Stosur will meet in the final for this quarter, Azarenka coming on top (she has never lost to Sam).

tennisforadults
Jun 19th, 2010, 01:51 AM
Azarenka or Caroline, Stosur canīt play on grass, even if she game is made for grass I guess...

Her game isn't really made for grass. People just assumed it's made for grass because she hits big serves and good volleys.

The ball bounces too low to be in her hitting zone. Her topspin and kick serve has very little effect. Her reaction time is not great, so the inconsistent bounces add to her woes.

LudwigDvorak
Jun 19th, 2010, 03:52 AM
Azarenka isn't going to win Eastbourne and then make the SF of Wimbledon. That's too many matches.

Zheng will make this or Wozniacki herself.
