Cara BLACK (ZIM) Vs. Tatiana PANOVA (RUS)
[2] Kim CLIJSTERS (BEL) -- BYE

Well... Lena has a great draw.

1st round- She plays Schiavone... who is Lena's personal bitch on tour. :) I know they've played numerous times, and Lena has won every match easily.

I watched them play at the Open, and Lena will have no problems beating the wanna-be Mansour Bahrami, delayed grunting girl if she plays well.

2nd round- Silvia took out Lena in the French last year, so revenge must take place. Again, if Lena plays well she should have no problems against Silvia or Janette who don't have the weapons to combat against her.

QF- Probably Dokic or Meghannnn. Meghannnn also needs a swift kick in the ass, for not letting me see my Queen play in the Aussie. It would be extra sweet to make the home fans cry, also. Also, Meghannnn was playing at her best during the Aussie season, and Lena still should have won... so I still like Lena's chances. Dokic isn't playing like a Top 10 player right now... so this is a good chance for Lena!

SF- It's not Serena... so Lena has a fairly good chance. An in form Lena has a good chance against Kim on quick hardcourts, IMO.

This is a good chance for Lena to break out in a bigger tourney! You can do it, Lena!

Well... Jelena did manage to win 5 games against Lena last time they played... Lena should try for the double bagel. :)

I was not sure where to put it since there is no picture thread in Elena's forum. So here it goes:
