Re: SI Experts' Picks for Wimbledon

You should not even be allowed to pick Ana as a "flameout" pick anymore. Way to go out on a limb, Andrew Lawrence! In her last 7 slams, Ana has had four 1st round exits and two 2nd round exits. Ana losing early in slams is not surprising or unexpected anymore. It's sadly become the norm.

Andrew Lawrence's flameout pick is Ivanovic. Is that technically possible by this definition ? Loss before 1'st round ?

Well if Caro loses early, 50% people already know it, so it will not be surprising.

It's amazing how no.1 was picked only for a flameout.

I know that she goes to bed early with the chickens and loves to get up latest possible. So they call her a sleeper with reason.

Poor Karolina . Even the experts have no faith in her.

Someone picking Kaia as a sleeper.

Re: SI Experts' Picks for Wimbledon

I like the fact that so many tennis 'fans' and experts alike are predicting an early exit for Caroline. If she makes it to the second round it will look like a major achievement.
