Your wish is Wimbledon's command. Who would you like to see drawn in R1? Some possible match-up

R1
Ostapenko vs Sloane
Osaka vs Mladenovic - Sascha's girls
Gauff vs Anisimova - NextGen, America's future
Serena vs Venus - If not, why not?
Venus vs Osaka - JJ's girls
Mladenovic vs Garcia - Score still need more settling
Ostapenko vs Osaka - Team 97
Yastremska vs Muguruza - that H2H needs sorting out
Serena vs Cornet - Yeah, why not?
Shuai vs Swan - Recent history


Best court for these beatdowns or classics depending on which side of the fence you are?

The worst nightmare R1 match-up for your favourites?

Poots v Babs Strycova is usually good value but I feel Poots complete suckage on grass may limit the drama. But Oysterpancake v Strycova has potential.

Or even better Oysterpancake v Bencic in Battle of the Totally Sane '97 Grasscourt Babes.:hearts:

Also Cori Gauff v Sloane Stephens to remind Sloane that y'know tennis careers are time limited.

And Diyas v Svitolina - I feel a Top Ten win would do wonders for Zarina's confidence.:angel:



R1 opponent I don't want to see for Pavs - Arina Rodionova :(

R1 opponent I don't want to see for Maddy - Monica Niculescu :scared:

Serena vs Sharapova - for obvious reasons
Venus vs Gauff - for probably the widest age gap between 2 players in tennis history?
Barty vs Mladenovic - see how "same level" Mladenovic fares against the #1
Zhang vs Swan - :eek:h:
Kvitova vs Bouchard
Halep vs Anisimova
Stephens vs Ostapenko
Svitolina vs Azarenka

Sharapova and Ostapenko can literally face ANYONE in the first round.

I hope Sharapova vs Halep
...Sharapova vs Bouchard would be nice.

I don't want to see Sharapova vs Ostapenko because they are my faves but it could happen.

I also dont want Sharapova to face Kerber, Osaka or Serena so early. That's for week two.
