What do the hallowed lwans have in stall for 2011...Wimbledon draw Anaylsis and Prediction.

Whack on the whites, line up for strawberries and cream the proceed to make your way to the pims tent. Wimbledon is here again and promises to be a rather interesting tournament as the most successful players, especially on the grass of SW19, over the last decade Serena and Venus Williams are both returning from lengthy breaks. This poses many question, can the great champions put rust aside to return to great from? Can Wozniacki finally make that break through? Can Maria reinstate her self at the top? Or can someone shake up the women's game?

First Quarter

Do I need to go through the whole Caroline searching for her maiden slam thing again? Well sorry Caro but you better get ready to do it all again at Flushing Meadows. Caroline has be given a very challenging quarter which will see her possibly face up against Miza, Gajdosova, Cibulkova and Goerges before the quarter finals. I would assume (hope) that Jarka will beat her in the 3rd round setting up a heavy hitting 4th round match with Goerges, which should be highly entertaining. But who will be the other player in the quarter final? Well I can't even pretend that's a difficult question! Sharapova will prevail in a 4th round clash with Peng, duhhh!
Predicted QF - Julia Goerges vs Maria Sharapova

Second Quarter

Now this is where it begins to get interesting! Many would expect Li Na to make it to the quarter final, I on the other hand beg to differ. Toughest second round match - Sabine Lisicki which for some reason I see Sabine winning and making it to the 4th round only to lose to Agnieszka Radwanska, sorry Sabine. The it only gets getter Serena Williams and Marion Bartoli in the 4th round! OMG talking about anticipated. Inform versus Comeback, would have Serena gotten rid of the rust? It could possible be one of the better 4th round matches and I can't wait to match it.

Predicted QF - Agnieszka Radwanska vs Serena Williams

Third Quarter

Okay so if you ever wanted a definition of unpredictable just check out the top half of this quarter. Well umm Dokic will beat Fran in the first round. Oh there will be a qualifier in the 2nd round. I think Petko should win her 1st round match...that's all I am willing to predict. Its just too difficult! The bottom half of this quarter however features the best 3rd round match Azarenka and, talk about QF worthy, who ever wins that match is with out a doubt going straight to the SF.
Predicted QF - Andrea Petkovic vs Umm, going out a limb here (biased) Victoria Azarenka

Fourth Quarter

Well well, Kvitova looks pretty good to make it to the QF but then again there is always the unpredictability of Svetlana Kuznetsova and Yanina Wickmayer. Kvitova would like to hops she can go far with her stack of points to defend from last years SF run. While in the lower sector of this quarter a blockbuster 4th round clash looks likely to played out between Venus Williams and Vera Zvonareva, oh how blogging is challenging. This match could possibly be one again one of the best matches of the tournament.

Predicted QF - Svetlana Kuznetsova vs Vera Zvonareva

QF's predictions

Julia Goerges vs Maria Sharapova
Well this could be very very interesting! Maria will be on grass but Julia can be very very dangerous. It will be a hard hitting tussle and Julia will be looking forward to avenging her tough three set loss to Maria in the Australian open this year, its going to be tough, powerful and won by Maria.

Agnieska Radwanska vs Serena Williams
Should this really be written about, Serena will be to strong and to good for Radwanska on the day.

Andrea Petkovic vs Victoria Azarenka
Azarenka is going to make her SF break through, I just know it will be here! I can feel it!

Svetlana Kuznetsova vs Vera Zvonareva
Well to be completely honest Vera will win this one too, I mean yeah, yeah. Sveta should just be happy I am putting her into the QF.

SF Predictions

Maria Sharapova vs Serena Williams
Its going to be loud and powerful and won by the better server. Serena should just be stoked to be in SF and yes its lovely blah blah blah, but Maria will be too good for the returning, possibly still rusty Serena.

Victoria Azarenka vs Vera Zvonareva
Drama and melt downs, flips a coin, lets see who wins. There will be towels over heads, screams and busted raquets, high drama but in all honestly, its the only reason I watch tennis! Vera in three.

Maria Sharapova

Vera Zvonareva

Yeah I know huge call by me, but I think its the right time for her to make the break through and Maria, well shes still unpredictable and unreliable with her shoulder.

Guess I messed up on the other thread. There will be NO 1/4 between Bunny & Georges!

I would love for Vera Z to win the whole thing.. Simply because she's paid her dues and has been playing the best tennis of her career according to the ranking system.

No way Bunny wins without her daddy to come out and console/give instruction during the game.

I also think it will be between Vera and Maria. However, I doubt Vika will go far because she has just got injured yet again and Wimbledon is not that far away.

EASTBOURNE, England (AP)—Rain washed out semifinal play at Eastbourne on Friday, with all women’s and men’s matches rescheduled for Saturday.

The tournament will attempt to complete all four semifinal matches, with the finals to follow.

In the women’s event, Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic is to play Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia and Sam Stosur of Australia will face Marion Bartoli of France.

Emily or as Carlos likes to call me "Captain" said...

Marine, in all my biasedness I can only hope :) Although it is more likly Daniela will be in the SF.

Caps, thanks for the info...tough matches the winner of Kvitova/Hantuchova will win the whole thing!

Marine said...

Emily, I have doubts about Daniela as well. She pulled out of her match today and she screwed up her shoulder again.
I dont know what everyone has with Kvitova. Since she defeated Woz people tip her as a fav for every slam, LOL.
