Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Possible debutantes in the qualifying round, in order of what I believe are their chances to qualify (from most likely to least likely):

Lapushchenkova (vs Woerle)
Panova (vs Schruff)
Jozami (vs O'Brien)
Scheepers (vs Vögele)
Wienerova (vs Oudin)

Mirkovic (vs Date) - no idea

BTW Scheepers career-high ranking was in 2003. She's been hovering around #250 ever since, her ranking never sinking all that much. Skavronskaya part deux?

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Possible debutantes still alive in the 2R of qualies:

Vongsouthi
Tatishvili
Bratchikova
Sevastova
Hercog
Piedade
Zec Peskiric
Begu
Diatchenko
Halep
Silva
Micaela Carolina Larcher de Brito
Rus
Dentoni
Martic
Wienerova
Panova

All the remaining players in the Zec Peskiric-Begu-Diatchenko-Halep section have never played a GS MD, so we're assured of at least one debutante (which is likely to be Halep). Sevastova also has a shot at qualifying I think, Hercog not as much, Rus I don't know, Martic I very much doubt. The bottom section consists of two Americans and two possible debutantes, so some chances there as well.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Now Final Q:
Klaschka vs Ondraskova
Bratchikova or Sevastova
Hercog vs Duque Marino
Begu or Diatchenko
Larcher de Brito vs Ivanova
Rus vs O'Brien
Dentoni vs Fedossova
Martic vs Rodina

So we're guaranteed 2 debutantes
Likeliness of others in my eyes:
Dentoni [hopefully not ]
Rus
Larcher de Brito
Hercog/Martic/Klaschka

Or maybe not. Just about everything else wrong too. Screw these junior Slam winners. They all suck balls. Transfers to betting sites put on hold...

Possible debutantes in qualifying round:

Klaschka
Bratchikova
Sevastova
Hercog
Begu
Diatchenko
Micaela Carolina Larcher de Brito
Rus
Dentoni
Martic

My guesses are Sevastova, possibly Diatchenko, Rus and possibly Dentoni.

All debutante qualifiers are teenagers.

Re: Grand Slam debutantes

Quote:
Rus
I feel Rus' best surface will probably turn out to be clay, in the same way that you could say that Nikki V's. best surface is clay. Her wide swings and the fact that her below-par footwork keep her stranded a few feet behind the baseline means that her timing issues wont be nearly as evident. Big difference between her and Nicole of course is that Rus simply doesn't possess the same firepower.

Quote:
Dentoni
Only notable thing I can say, as I've never seen her play, is that I was surprised at Sesil K's. meltdown against her. Sesil K's. game has suffered damage(perhaps irreversibly so) in the years she's been out from the game. Her FH is now completely useless and her serve is Pin-esque. Still, her overall defensive game and her smooth, clean BH should be enough on clay to beat someone like Dentoni rather handily almost every time.

Quote:
Sevastova
She seems like an all-surface player, from what I've seen. Her defense is decent, she's not a pusher etc. Not a surprise.

Quote:
Hercog
Woo, prediction come true! Hercog will be destined to hack it out on the lower clay court tiers indefinitely. Her FH simply falls apart on faster surfaces, and probably still will do on clay against competent ballbashers. She undoubtedly has more time on clay to junk players around from the baseline who can't hit through her. I imagine her defense is much better on clay too. Her draw wasn't too bad. Out-of-sorts X-treme ballbasher, another equally hopeless youngster, and the dire puffballer Duque Marino.

Quote:
Diatchenko
No comments to add.

Quote:
Martic
Quite surprised by this one. Martic's form has been crap since last summer and this comes out of nowhere. After seeing her against Meusburger (lawl) last year on some livestream, I can only remember thinking what a smooth, consistenly big serve she had. Can't remember much about her ground game, possibly a slightly inconsistent version of U. Radwanska?

Quote:
Micaela Carolina Larcher de Brito
Once Petkovic lost, I expected ShellydeB to qualify. Before today's match against Ivanova I thought 2, toughish sets for ShellydeB. Ivanova plays a fairly smooth counter-punching game with no weapons from the baseline, but has some nice savvy touch shots from what I remember from about a month or so ago. It was much to my amazement of course when I looked at the score of 0-6 0-3. Ivanova doesn't have to game to blitz ShellydeB however, so with not much of a serve either, a comeback wasn't totally off the cards.

Best chances in the main draw would be for ShellydeB (match against Zheng would be endlessly fun), Sevastova and Martic.
