Second round: versus Ai Sugiyama (JAP/25), on one hand a good grass player reaching Wimbledon quarters last year but on the other hand a player who is out of sorts in 2005 and in addition to that under pressure to defend so many points- she is beatable for Anne Kremer
Third round: Kim Clijsters (BEL/17), a very tough opponent who would probably bring Anne's Wimbledon road to an end (but Anne Kremer is leading Kim Clijsters 1:0 in the H2H 6:2 6:1 victory in 2001
Apart from the difficult third round Anne Kremer has a nice draw and she should be able to defend her third round from 2004.
Good luck Anne!
First round: LL (Krajicek being injured); if Claudine plays like she did in the match against Klara Koukalova, she will zoom to round 2 for sure
Second round: Nadia Petrova (RUS/8); a stubborn adversary, but Claudine could play free, without pressure
Finally a beatable opponent in first round for Claudine Schaul who has no points to defend at Wimbledon.
Good luck Claudine!
Claudine will play LL Beltrame who is definitely beatable
well, I see a one way traffic to 3rd round for Anne
only one problem is if Spears is eager for revenge for Eastbourne Cup lost
yesterday, if she's....
Anne has strapped left thigh, hope nothing serious
