And in the semis she'll get Errani, Wozzy or Halep. Halep could potentially be the most dangerous of them because she's in the winning mood and as we know winning can become a habit just like losing can.
I definitely think Woz is good for a deep run, though!

Well, I admit that as a fan I'm genuinely excited this time. I always root for her, but in the recent past I never really believed that she could actually do anything at the slams because her game was a complete mess. Draws didn't even matter because she always lost to a non-entity in the first or second round anyway. But this time I think she has a shot at making a deep run. I'm not such a dreamer that I actually think she can win the entire thing though. But a deep run IS possible with this draw. She's playing a bit better, she plays with a stick that she likes, it's at the slam where she's had her best results and there's nobody in her way before the QF against whom she's the underdog. So a QF and perhaps even a SF is possible. That sounds perhaps modest, but the Wozniacki fan in me is not as spoiled as the Sharapova fan. As a Woz fan I don't have the luxury of calling anything but a tournament win a failure. If she makes the QF after hardly winning a match at slam level for two years I would call that a success. If she would make the semis it would be huge. And if she would do even better it would be science fiction. So yeah, I'm excited. But I also know that it's entirely possible that she will have to take her adorable ass back to Danmark (or Monaco) after just one match. After her struggles of the last two years each match will be like a final to her. There are no cupcake draws after two years of being a part of someone else's cupcake.

Is there a tournament coming up? I mean...

City of Bones is such a tragic excuse of a movie. I left the theatre as confused as I was before entering

IDK, I think it would require more luck than she got at this year's AO. She still hasn't played consistently well in MONTHS, regardless of the Rena win.

Although if Petra somehow makes the QF maybe she'll rise to the occasion.

I've kept banging on about this in GM for weeks, but since the start of 2012, Azarenka has only lost one match when she's hit more winners than her opponent (Makarova in Madrid, and that was on her hated clay when she was very rusty), and we all know that bar divine intervention Wozniacki is not going to be hitting more winners than Azarenka. Admittedly their Cincy match was closer than it should've been, but I'm chalking that up to Azarenka still having the slight residual mental block against her due to that head-to-head, but that win in itself should have removed that mental block and make it easier for her next time.

Other than that, I do agree with what you're saying, I do think that Aza's win over Serena has made everyone forget that she was otherwise very unconvincing this summer, and I do think she could be vulnerable at this tournament. But I think it will have to be a ballbasher who takes her out (there are signs that Petra might finally be getting her shit together, so she could possibly do it), because she can afford to be several levels below her best and still grind her way past defensive players imo, because she very rarely has the sort of total mass errorfests that Maria or even Serena can occasionally be prone to that are needed to lose to the likes of Woz.
The level of delusion might be worry some ppl that you overdosed the painkillers after your heart was broken.

I hate Miss Guest to the core of her bones, but Karolina or the Homewrecker making the final would be even more upsetting seeing how much they suck.


anyway.
A certain fan favorite returning to twitter after a one year hiatus and her first tweet is about a sponsor event.
But of course Maria who is THE corporate drone.
Do ppl actually use their brain or its for just balancing their ass full of shit according to newtonian physics?
I dont even have to read the withdrawal thread for the knee jerking moments, so just checked the post counts, there was maybe 4-5 fans of Martha in the top20-25 commenters.
The cuteness in these stories just overwhelming.

Bittersweet - I was just about to reply to bandabou asking whether he was sufficiently discontented with the direction the Maria injury thread had taken to agree that it should be closed, and it was already closed

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

I'm going to NY tomorrow and the Open tuesday.

I'm excited, but it's going to be so different without the excitement of Maria playing. Hopefully she'll watch Grigor play

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

So disinterested in the USO - feel like I'm hate-watching.

Anyways, Kaman, Mandy! Minella better hold her shit together today. I'm going to stan for Danilidou tomorrow, tbh. Ain't nobody got time for Martha's last two scrub losses to get to R2.

Re: Off Topic....Anything Goes vol5

So my mom and sister want to spend a couple whose at the US Open at most.
That defeats the whole purpose for me, so many of my favorites are playing tomorrow.
