I was very disappointed that this thread did not make note of the whimsical musings contain inside.

Do you really think the 1995 Conchi still lives?

I heard (I think 3 days ago) in polish TV, that they rather suspect martinez to win than Williams :eek:

But.... It would be a nice suprise for me :kiss:

Ahem. Venus' named is spelled wrong the entire time. LOL.

Hell, maybe this isn't a gimme for Venus. you know, it's only Warsaw. I doubt she'll pull out all stops to win it.

Lol @ your faith in Bye. Very whimsical. I'm more shocked at your faith in Iva, though.

Venus is still in America, playing on a completely different surface. That may not even be important in the end... she won't face a threat until the final, and by then she should have acclimatised enough.

It'd be really nice if Marta Domachowska could pull off the upset against Elena L... she's a charming young lady and very talented. And if Elena L has one of her crap days, anything could happen.

Hey, I'm almost sure she can beat Lena. Marta's in such a good form right now. She has very good service, and plays very fast ball - like Venus *LOL*.
And she plays in her city, in her club. :bounce: I think thats help her much.

It ISN'T a gimme for Venus. But Panova hasn't got enough offense to overcome Venus' footspeed. Daniilidou nerves are apt to go at any time, and her serve with them. Hantuchova is just ... off, right now. Maybe going back to Europe will help. But I wouldn't look for a breakthrough vs Venus here. Majoli would probably have the best chance to beat Venus, since its an outdoor event.

Hantuchova is not much of a factor here. Fabiola Zuluaga's a very, very, VERY good bet to upset her in round 2. I mean... Daniela was much better at the AO, and Fabiola nearly pulled off the upset there.

Er, I think Amelie has sliiightly more chance of beating Venus than Iva. Has she ever played a Williams sister on clay? I can't remember.

partyzantka - from what I saw of Marta last autumn, I don't think she's got the game YET to beat Elena L on her own terms. (She has really nice volleys, incidentally - she's great in doubles.) But Elena L just lost to Sprem and is a bit insane...

Well, I saw Marta in August, and I can say she's made a progress. I don't know if thats enough for Elena, but as you say, she's not playng well at all right now.
BTW
I think Marta is much better in singles than in double.
But probably Venus win there

Volcana, if anybody's knocking off Venus, it'll be a lesbian, that much I can assure you.

i actually agree with you

and even thats unlikely

when Venus loses, its rarely to top players not named williams

venus' only threat here seems to be Amelie Mauresmo. Since she is returning since who knows when? Well venus too, but like its been shown in the past from the sisters, breaks do not hinder how they come out playing, they are pretty much "on" enough to become the victor. But i think Hantuchova will be going out early, and I think daniilidou and Maioli will be as well.
