Only 6 of 16 fourth rounders

For the first time in my memory all 16 survivors to the 4 round of GS are Europeans.
In comparision with last years last 16 of Rolland Garros only 6 names repeat themselves. It's certainly beginning of new era

Exciting times in women's tennis.

I hope a teenage champion emerges within the next year or so.

Next year. This year I want to see the Grande Dame of the Sweet 16 finally win one.

(If she's not the grande dame, she's one of 'em anyway).

Re: Only 6 of 16 fourth rounders

I have checked the draw and what you say is not correct!!!

Sharapova is not European!!!

She was born in Syberia (Asia) and live her whole life in USA so there is no way you can call her European!!!

Re: Only 6 of 16 fourth rounders

Good thread. A new era indeed.

At the start of the year I thought this looked like a year of upheaval, transition and change and it has so far certainly lived up to that. The veteran players haven't disappeared completely and Serena Williams particularly impressed during Miami and Charleston but overall it has been a year which has seen great progress from many young players and most of the veterans struggling. Dementieva, the Williams sisters and Schynder have all resisted pretty well for the most part but more and more the game is now in the under 25s hands.

Re: Only 6 of 16 fourth rounders

I'm so excited about this!! To see all the new up-and-coming players!! It's starting to get interesting again with new players in the last rounds of every tournament almost!!
I really hope for a teenage-winner here in Roland Garros!!

Re: Only 6 of 16 fourth rounders

It doesn't matter where Sharapova is from. She's lived most of her life in the US, is living out the American dream, and when she speaks Russian she has an American accent, whereas she has almost no Russian accent when she speaks English. The girl is American whether she thinks so or not.

I'm not going to get into a debate about this. I never said the US was pefect and I know a lot of people aren't well off and are struggling (you'll find that in every country, mind you), but I'm talking about Sharapova, who has a dream life. The idea that whoever you are, no matter where you're from, you have the possibility to take your hard work/intelligence/talent/skill and make a nice life out of it. That's the American dream. Many of the foreign and domestic players owe their time spent in the US for their current success.

Let's not debate politics here.
