Draw is out: US Open draw

Kim plays Liu first round. She's got Amelie in her quarter and Lindsay projected for semi.

From what I can see, Kim's only real roadblock to the final is Amelie. I don't know Kim's record against Zvonereva and a few others, but Amelie is the only real challenge I see. Considering Amelie is coming off injury and will have played 3 weeks in a row by the time the QF are played, I think/hope Kim can come through easily (or at least in 3 sets).

Justine has an easy ass draw to the semis...

Prayed through the nights
felt so alone
suffered from alienation
carried the weight on my own
Had to be strong
so I believed
and now I know I've succeeded
in finding the place I conceived

Does anyone know what Amelie's results have been recently?
I must admit, I'm worried. No Venus is good, but Vera and Amelie could spell trouble.

She lost to Dementieva in Toronto..and apparently her back injury is acting up a bit. She said hardcourts are the worst to play on when you have an injury...

She's definatly a tough opponent..but I think we'll have to see how she is doing physically by the Quarters..

Good luck Kim! I think the draw is kind of good - not too easy but not impossibly hard either.

I actually don't think the draw is that bad, Vera Z lost to Pistolesi in New Haven and Suarez in Toronto, both of those players are clay courters, if Kim plays as we know she can she should win she beat her in round 3 last year, when she wasn't playing as well as she is this year. As for Mauresmo, well if you had to take a Mauresmo QF or Venus SF I'd take the Mauresmo QF, Mauresmo lost to Dementieva in Toronto, and who knows Lina may take out Mauresmo. Overall I say to this draw, but I have to say Henin got a piss easy walk to the semis Oh well at least all those detractors in GM can't say Kim's draw is a cakewalk or that it is riged in her favour now, also what it does is it cuts out possible bonus points for Henin while Kim can gain heaps and that makes it harder for Henin to catch Kim at 1
