Re: What's the most interesting 1R encounter?

For me it's Groth - Wickmayer. Two quality players, I really have no idea who will prevail. The only chance for Wickmayer is Groth being tired or nervous in front of her home crowd on such a big court, because otherwise she will steamroll Yanina.

But in terms of Names it's obviously Clijsters-Safina. I hope Dinara gets some games

Re: What's the most interesting 1R encounter?

There's a bunch of great first rounders actually.

Kim-Safina just for name recognition - last time we had this big a first round (accomplishment-wise) was it Henin-Martinez at RG?

Groth-Wickmayer. Both could be darkhorse Quarterfinalists really, and both did well in the leadup events; but one of them will flame out early.

Caro-Dulko. Probably wont be as interesting as most people think, but Dulko's beaten some big names in Slams and Woz has looked shaky early on this year.

Re: What's the most interesting 1R encounter?

I can't see Jarmila steamrolling top 30 players on regular basics. She shares sth of Petrova's attitude - both are too perfectionist, easily get upset at themselves, only Jarmila is more of a brat. She won't keep her cool long enough to make it an easy match.

Re: What are the most interesting 1R encounters?

Voted Yanina - Jarmilla they are both in form right now. Shame one has to lose in R1

Clijsters - Safina could be good, but more likely it's going to be a demolishion job.

Re: What are the most interesting 1R encounters?

Caro v Gise is what I pick. Gise has a habit of beating top players, and then go lose to some nobody in next match

Re: What are the most interesting 1R encounters?

How the hell has Wozniacki vs Dulko have so many votes? LMFAO Dulko has no game and Wozniacki will give her no pace or mistakes, so it wont even be competitive. Wozniacki will maul her.
