Any chance you would be willing to sell me a copy? I'd love to see Vika play again. I miss her on the big stage.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Another update:

Suarez Navarro into 4R with wins over Parmentier, [22] Mauresmo, and Dellacqua.
Kvitova into 4R with wins over Morigami, Stosur, and [12] Szavay.

Suarez Navarro plays Pennetta in the 4R while Kvitova plays Kanepi, great chance for both of them.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

First time a debutante reaches a Slam QF since the 05 USO.

A few weeks ago, I was watching her lose to Corinna Dentoni.

Hmm?

I thought the QF was:

Sharapova vs. Petrova
Clijsters vs. V.Williams
Pierce vs. Mauresmo
Dementieva vs. Davenport

But yes, Suarez Navarro into the QF with a win over [26] Pennetta.
Kvitova will be looking to follow in her footsteps tomorrow.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Those are some impressive debuts by Kvitova and Suarez Navarro! Although in Carla's case the draw opened up for her big time...

It's interesting that she is not the first qualifier to reach Roland Garos QF in recent years. Petra Mandula and Marta Marrero (debutante too) did it too and could never follow it up with anything significant.

Didn't mean that a qualifier had reached the QF at the 05 USO; should have made it clearer that it was the first time a qualifier had reached a Slam QF in the period covered by this thread (i.e. post 05 USO).

I see now, I probably should have understood that.
It would be interesting to see when the last time a debutante reached the QF of a slam, maybe I'll do some research when I have more time. Exams in two days though so I don't have much of that at the moment.

Kids these days are so damn responsible. Two days before exams are due is just the ideal occasion to waste time in here and procrastinate by spending hours digging obscure and useless stats.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

There are no debutantes with direct entry into the MD in the Wimbledon entry list, as is to be expected (no time for major ranking changes in just four weeks).

We'll have to wait and see who survives qualies.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Several possible debutantes still alive in qualies. But I believe it's better to wait until the actual qualifying round before talking about their chances.
