In her three meetings with the world number seven Italian, Dokic has emerged victorious, including when they met in Kuala Lumpur in February.

"I'm looking forward to that match actually because we played in Kuala Lumpur on the hard court and a pretty high-bouncing court that maybe suits her a little bit more and on grass I think maybe I have a little bit of an advantage," Dokic said.

"I play a little bit more aggressive than her and I play more flat and her top spin game, she cannot use it as much maybe as on clay in the French Open, so it's tough for both of us to play that match first round but I'm looking forward to the match."

Of her Wimbledon draw, Dokic said "It's not maybe the best draw but it's definitely not the toughest", adding that Rosmalen has been excellent preparation.

"I am happy that I have been able to win all these matches here and I haven't lost a set yet, so a great sign for me. I have to be happy with my form," she said.

Schiavones French Open run will get her back on track, and she isnt going to have a letdown since she isnt coming off an unworldy shock and high like last year. I see Schiavone in 2 close sets, maybe 3. Dokic really isnt a top player at this point.

Vincey!

Hopefully Jelena can keep her Rosmalen form and beat Fran in 2, but I'm expecting it to be Dokic's in 3 cuz Fran will just fight and fight lol

Schiavone sucks on grass, we all know that, but the dokic that is playing in 's-Hertogenbosch is mediocre, just saw her beating an immoble, injured oprandi and she looked obviously far from her best, but also far from her february 2011 form. their head to head doesn't mean anything in the first two meetings dokic was at the top, schiavone not. In their last meeting schiavone didn't care at all in kuala lumpur! i wait to see if jelena can beat vinci today

Jelly is good in opening rounds, remember when she beat Martina Hingis? Jelly wins 6-4 7-5

Vinci has a fantastic grass court game. She has a great slice, great drop shots, decent serve, comes in a lot and has amazing volleys. Her game was tailor made to cause Dokic problems. Although their games share some similarities Schiavone plays with a lot more topspin and doesnt come in as much. Her game is much more suited to clay.

Tough draw but I think Jelena will come through in 3!

Schiavone sure won't go down without a fight – I hope Jelena will be up for it!

schiavone has better forehand and serve than vinci, she can slice too and come in more frequently if she wants, i'm not saying that schiavone will win because i know that dokic can play better than she did today, i only find strange that dokic is so in front in the poll, but (almost) anything can happen with schiavone, so i don't vote, i hope schiavone will win

Schiavone in 2.

Yes, Jelena had a couple of good wins this week, but is still far from top form. IMO it's unlikely she will keep up a good level of play for 2 consecutive weeks.

One thing I would say is that Vinci's forehand is much better suited to grass. Its much flatter and more penetrating and scoots through the court a lot more than Franny's.
