Is this the weakest bottom half (round 2 onwards) at a Grand Slam in recent times?

Serena, Radwanska, Kerber, Venus are the only players I can see reaching the SF from the bottom half. And there seem to be a lot of random players who will at least reach R3. Esapcially Serena's quarter looks really weak IMO.

Compare and discuss.

Silvia Soler-Espinosa ESP

Tsvetana Pironkova BUL
Ayumi Morita JPN


Sloane Stephens USA

Maria Kirilenko RUS (14)
Greta Arn HUN

Galina Voskoboeva KAZ
Andrea Hlavackova CZE


Elena Vesnina RUS
Ekaterina Makarova RUS

Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez ESP
Serena Williams USA (4)

--------------

Angelique Kerber GER (6)
Venus Williams USA

Johanna Konta GBR
Olga Govortsova BLR


Kiki Bertens NED
Olga Puchkova RUS

Vera Dushevina RUS
Sara Errani ITA (10)


Dominika Cibulkova SVK (13)

Tbf if rena + kerber/aga come out in the semis then it's order restored as those were the favourites anyway.
Dark horses are JJ and Vee IMO

Serena and Sharapova got the easiest quarters to begin with, but the first few round players in Serena's quarter (Coco/MJMS/Makarova/Kirilenko) are trickier than Sharapova's (Czink/LDL/Burdette/pigeontrova) who does have trickier QF opponent.

Azarenka has a pretty easy quarter, all the mess is happening in the lower half of her quarter which will be cleaned up by her pigeon Stosur who will spread her legs and ass cheeks wide open for the Quarterfinals.

IMO, the finalist from the first half is more predictable than the bottom half.
