Any thoughts on the following matchups and how far they might go?

Silvia Farina Elia ITA (21) vs. (Q)Maria Emelia Salerni ARG (161)
Francesca Schiavone ITA (29) vs. Eva Vislova SVK (99)
Rita Grande ITA (64) vs. Tamarine Tanasugarn THA (42)
Flavia Penetta ITA (58) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS (27)
Antonella Serra Zanetti ITA (85) vs. Stephanie Foretz FRA (80)
Maria Elena Camein ITA (96) vs. Daja Bedanova CZE (88)
(Q)Adriana Serra Zanetti ITA (110) vs. Denisa Chladkova CZE (41)
Tathiana Garbin ITA (109) vs. (Q) Mara Santangelo ITA (127)


Both Silvia and Francesca made it to the final 16 last year and I'm hoping for a repeat performance. With the draw opened up as a result of Venus' withdrawal they could actually face each other in the fourth round this year - at least I'm hoping. ;)

As for the others it looks precarious but I'm hoping for the best. :cool:

Also, anyone know why Roberta Vinci wasn't here for qualies? Is she injured? Eggy, are you there? :wavey:

I hope Francesca will not met Eleni!
Because Francesca always defeats her :fiery:

You can see in my site the "Head to Head", Francesca leads 4-0, she is Eleni´s nemesis :p

Good luck per tutti bambini!

Ed :D

Here are my thoughts on how they will go...please remember I suck at predictions, but I just want to say how great it is to see so many Italian women in the draw!

Silvia Farina Elia ITA (21) vs. (Q)Maria Emelia Salerni ARG (161)
Silvia should win this. I like Pitu a lot, but she's way too unreliable. Hopefully Silvia gets through...but sorry Ed if all goes to plan I hope it ends in round 2 ;)

Francesca Schiavone ITA (29) vs. Eva Vislova SVK (99)
You mean Fislova? :p She who beat Iva 6-0 6-1 a few months ago :rolleyes: Bitch :devil: I think Francesca will beat her in straight.

Rita Grande ITA (64) vs. Tamarine Tanasugarn THA (42)

Anyone's guess. Both are dangerous floaters...hmmm, I'll go with Rita in 3.

Flavia Penetta ITA (58) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova RUS (27)
Flavia is adorable and a newbie on my faves list, but I love Sveta to bits and think she'll win in 2 (hopefully)

Antonella Serra Zanetti ITA (85) vs. Stephanie Foretz FRA (80)
Lucky break for both! This is a toss up...both not playing the best...hmmm, I'll go with Stephanie in 3 sets.

Maria Elena Camein ITA (96) vs. Daja Bedanova CZE (88)
Daja :rolleyes: She will drop out of the top 100 soon. I think she'll get through this match but lose next round probably.

(Q)Adriana Serra Zanetti ITA (110) vs. Denisa Chladkova CZE (41)
Denisa should be too strong for Adriana....an upset is not out of the question though.

Tathiana Garbin ITA (109) vs. (Q) Mara Santangelo ITA (127)

I'll go with Tax in 3.

I think at least 4 will get through...capable of getting many more through though :)
