Maria. Literally all of her near high seeds are in danger of getting upset (Kerber v Hradecka, the JJ/Kim/Vera section will be a guaranteed mess with someone like Hlavackova or Chang emerging from it LOL, Lisicki could bomb out to Martic, etc). All that while Pironkova, the only tough customer Maria has in her opening couple of rounds, appears to be injured.

Sharapova has got a very tough draw: Pironkova (semifinalist 2010), Lisicki (semifinalist 2011), Clijsters, Kerber or Makarowa in the quarters...

Venus Williams vs Radwanska is a highlight in R2! First seed to fall is Wozniacki? ;)

Serena has got the best possible draw: Errani for top 8, Kvitova for top 4 (well, Radwanska would have been better)

But I guess she'll got through to the final unless Kvitova rises her game by miles

Given this draw, Errani really ought to be able to win a few matches on grass. :rocker:

This draw has so much drama/upset potential :drool:

Li vs. Pervak just like at the AO
Clijsters vs. Jankovic :p
Possible 2nd round Sharapova vs. Pironkova
Possible 2nd round Radwanska vs. Venus :oh: Just like at the French.
Wozniacki vs. Paszek, Paszek playing well in Eastbourne
Wickmayer vs. Kuznetsova, rematch of last year.
Hradecka vs. Kerber
Barthel vs. Zvonareva, interesting match, same goes for Lisicki vs. Martic

Can't wait :drool:

Maria has a Cake draw, she'll go far. :p

I like Maria's draw. I think she should match up well against Pironkova. I also like her chances against Kim in the quarter (if Kim gets there). The only thing that scares me is Venus Williams if she gets to the semi-final.

Sharapova... I think.

Especially if Pironkova is not well

All top contenders have fairly easy draws.

I'd say Lobniacki has a VERY tricky draw full of journeywomen. Paszek, Voskoboeva, Vinci, Mini-vulture, Lucic and Bartoli are all above-average on grass and have produced some deep runs at Wimbledon. Kuznetsova is also looming but she clearly does not have a brain anymore. I'll be shocked if Caroline makes it to the QFs here.

Well I have Kerber losing R128 to Hradecka and Sabine to Petra (Martic) -- Li Na :spit: and Stosur is hardly a great grass-court player so a player like Rus might probably get the job done painlessly.

Venus I think will get her first win on Radwanska since -- but I can't see her getting any further than Hantuchova who beat her on grass for the first time if I recall in Eastbourne last year, should be a source of motivation.

The upper-draw should crumble quite fast with many "upsets" similar to Roland-Garros and the lower-draw, guess Maria couldn't wish for an easier draw to the SF. I don't think Maria will face a single top seed (bar Niculescu (?) if she can be considered herself). Yeah, Pironkova can be an issue but quite doubtful.

Hope Christina will take advantage and make a 4th. round here should be a good result for her. A QF could even be a possibility if Kerber as expected loses to Lucie Hradecka and her massive serve.
