No Janie, I didn't read yo Adrians play bby play.

Can you believe Anna versus Justine in the first round? No Anna or Justine after the first round? Wow! No Dokic. No Davenport. The women's event will be hurting this year. They should have seeded Anna #32. That would have prevented this embarrassing scenario. At least Anna is not out of her weight class with Henin, the way she was with Serena. but I would be shocked if Anna won. Justine's great backhand will be the difference. Anna hasn't been able to win a set from Justine in their 2 previous matches. And Henin is much better than she was in 2000, when they last played. Udachi Anna!

I am also very upset at this first-round match! :(

The last time Justine played Anna, both played badly, but Anna played worse and Justine came out on top.

Now I have come to think of Justine as a player with nerve problems similar to Anna's, and all the pressure is on HER, as the seed. Plus, Anna can usually muster up one good match per tournament - and THIS COULD BE IT! :eek:

Now I am a huge Justine fan, but as you can see this draw makes me just as unhappy as it makes you!

Plus, on your side, you get to have Anna around all tournament long, since she is Martina's doubles partner; plus all their matches will be on tv and on Center Court, no doubt! But Thin and Thinner are not that great a team yet, so if Justine loses to Anna, there is no Justine AT ALL for two weeks, but even if she survived a while in the doubles, her matches would likely be staged on Court 50 or Court 100. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:
